I’m here where the afterale won’t pour

And the thoughts are worse off than before

Committing to a new mistake

Some boy in blue you’ll break some more

I don’t wanna use my voice tonight

The failing good n’ bad with sour bite notes

I can come out of this alright

Problems you display like I’mma freak show

Playin a friend just to fill the role

An undertaker before the hole

All touched up and given to the ditch

But I won’t fear the capture of that post

That’s more than I could say for most

A passing mood used to disguise

The obvious murder that cleared the coast

I don’t wanna show my face tonight

Strike-me-dead to drown out bullshit plight drone

I don’t want-a none of yer bitter strife

The rail cry echoing out “I’ll be alright alone”

Ah thank you so much, I try to capture a certain sound but sometimes the mind's eye isn't as accurate as one would like. This song is pretty close to what I wanted tho. Thanks a lot again haha

Connor, song is nice and relaxing. Your lyrics always get me, they are beautiful and haunting.
Love the mellowness of the guitar and drums, and your voice is soft and sweet.
Also, the phasing out of the song and your voice is, great.

ConnorDeVaux responds:

Yeah I tried to get a warm soft small sound into it more than anything, I guess I'm just trying to make myself as small as possible

Un amor de canción uwu (◕ᴗ◕✿) pretty cool (ʘᴗʘ✿)!

ConnorDeVaux responds:
