I felt like writing a disgustingly "catchy" pop song. It's my first electronic song, so bear with me :)

you and i would take the longest way home
i'd catch my breath at every other corner lamp post

hot dog vendors
i'd taste the crumbs on your lips
we'd sit on sidewalks
and laugh at people who trip and fall (but only if they're okay)

i'd walk you past street names i'd once known
instead, i'm just reading them out alone
i'd spell your name on neon signs
but the moving words just tell me that i'll be alright

you and i would take polaroids of
our toes and fingers beside
giant painted hearts of steel

i'd walk you past street names i'd once known
instead, i'm just reading them out alone
i'd spell your name on neon signs
but the moving words just tell me that i'll be alright

tried not to miss you, look at me now
red-eyed nostalgia and an eighty-pound frown
and while you're kissing her in the sun
i'm kissing asphalt, still coming undone

i'd walk you past street names i'd once known
instead, i'm just reading them out alone
i'd spell your name on neon signs
but the moving words just tell me that i'll be alright

Interesting

One of the few songs on the audio portal, that actually fit under the category of "Pop". As the previous people mentioned, very genuine, as you record your own song and your own voice (I study music and sing in my school choir), which is both unique and commendable. I'm not a huge fan of many slow pop songs, but this works just fine.

Love the part at 0:50 onwards, and the lyrics are very meaningful. Will look at more of your works when I have the time. Well done.

P.S You have a very, very beautiful voice.

Thank you so much!

Sweet

I really, genuinely enjoyed it. I've never left a review on a piece of music on NG before. Love that you actually sing, and well too. Its a nice, catchy (your mission complete =D) pop song. I feel that you're more of a songwriter than others, it might be judgemental of me.. But the use of your voice that proves that there is an intention, and a person (not just software) behind this song. I'd use you as a vocalist, hehe. n__n

shoester responds:

Aww thank you!

Great

I'm happy to hear your sound because most people on this site just make stuff with software and call it 'kulz teknos' but you actually write songs and sing 'em which is the best way to go. We should form a group of people who are pro-vocal XD Love your songs :) I'm gonna fav you as an artist

Wow thanks so much, man! I've listened to just about all of your stuff and I really adore your songwriting and mixing. Yeah, I also get pretty excited when I find songs on NG with vocals..that group idea sounds beast :)
