Track 2 to the all-piano rock album "Redefined: A Piano Album"

This has the same lyrics as the original, but I've been wanting to do an acoustic or piano album. Seeing as how I'm a piano player, I decided to do an all-piano album featuring select rock songs that I've done in the past.

Now, mixing-wise, I have to recalibrate the gain and other inputs on my new Vista computer because they're all not as cooperative as they used to be on my past XP machines. So, because of this, the vocals reach the point of distortion here and there, but since they were recorded straight-shot, I didn't feel like redoing them another 1000 times to avoid it. I also planned on using the background fuzz to my advantage by using it to create an ambient live-performance sound. Also, I didn't use Auto-tune to correct my voice, but unlike most live-acoustic performers, I don't have a naturally whiny voice that NEEDS studio correction.

Composition-wise, it's me playing piano in realtime with no error-corrections or quantizing, and both vocals are me as well, even though the backup vocals were recorded after the piano part.

Here is the planned tracklist for this album (and what to look forward to):

1) No Face
2) The Fade
3) Never the Same
4) Vivid
5) Through the Mirror
6) (up for grabs. PM me with desired-in-piano-songs)

Hello, I am a Taiwanese, and I like your song very much. Actually, I first listen to your song is on the game---SCGMD3 (I know it is a old game lol ,but it is a good game to play).
I love this song very very much, do you leave the word of this song? I realy want to try to sing!

Another great version

This is one of my favorites, and I think your voice actually sounds alot better in this version, not that it sounded bad in the other one. I really do think it's underrated. The piano is great too, as it compliments your voice alot more. 10/10, and 5/5 for you.

Absolutely perfect

I've listened both songs and I have to say that I prefere the piano version... But I love the original one too...
Setu, can I have any partiture, or the chord of this song?

Bye... And excuse my english again... I'm spanish...

Better than the original? no but still amazing!

the fade(guitar) 20/10

the fade(piano)19/10
