It's definitely me singing, but I'm looking at this from the outside, seeing me try to aggressively defend my guarded nature. He doth protest too much.

LYRICS
---
Stop right there
Don't come any closer
If you do you're going to take me over
I don't want that
'Cause you're a distraction from my true path
Greatness

I've been working day and night
Yeah, when the sun goes down I just turn up the lights
You think I've got time?
Or even the will to leave this behind?
Keep dreaming on

I got my heart filled up with dreams
I got the music steering my bones
Don't be mad that you can't compete
It's not personal
It never was

I don't need love (x2)

Hold on now don't get angry
It's never personal when you're talking to me
I keep my heart closed
'Cause it's bursting to full
It's stuffed with rondos and symphonies

I got my heart filled up with dreams
I got the music steering my bones
Don't be mad that you can't compete
It's not personal
It never was

I don't need love (x4)

And I know this path I tread can be destructive
Hear me out
I'm only trying to make a mark before I grow old
And I see their happiness
My family and friends who have someone
But I carry on
'Cause I have to believe I'm doing the right thing

I got my heart filled up with dreams
I got the music steering my bones
Don't be mad that you can't compete
It's not personal
It never was

I don't need love (x4)

I got my heart filled up with dreams
I got the music steering my bones
Don't be mad that you can't compete
It's not personal
It never was (x2)

Rated 5 / 5 stars

I like the tranquil vibe at the beginning. The vocals are great - super smooth and conversational tone. You scoop up to a few of the notes at the beginning of phrases, but unfortunately that seems to be a trademark of pop. The lyrics themselves are very amusing as well. Again, your style reminds me of something out of a musical or something, probably because it’s a piece that clearly has a story attached. :) The first verse dragged on a little long, though, and the refrain doesn’t do much to resolve the tension there. I did like how you have a constant build-up ingrained in the texture, though - the pizzicatos at the second verse were a nice touch. The instruments blend well together in general, and the production quality is very high. The injection of passion at 1:45 was much-appreciated. The guitars at 2:30 really helped give the piece a sense of direction as well. The layered vocals at 3:46 are great. Overall, this is another excellent composition. It feels a little long-winded, but perhaps that’s suitable for a broadway musical anyway. ;) Keep it up, FinnMK!
