My friends.

Now that I'm back to my lil room studio. I've had a lot of time to work on music. Too bad I was having writers block. Fortunately... I find that in these times, I often make my best work. So out from the ashes... this song was born. It started with me playing with some vocal effects and applying them to an old song I was writing. After a while I had completely transformed my work into what I feel is one of my most impressive songs to date. I'll leave the lyrics open to interpretation, but I feel I should also make a music video to this, just to give the visual I was feeling when writing it.

Anywho... since you're probably listening to it already. You'll likely want the lyrics...

-=Verse 1 =-
Live Strong
Run Free
Die Well
But you cannot escape

This is where we cried
Tombstone of a
The sky is set in
Shades of gray
Cause here you lay

Even if I was the key
I could never set you free
The sky is set in shades of gray
Cuz here you lay

-=Verse 2=-
Broken lives
and tainted hearts
I Can't go back
To where it starts
I Can't go home
Can't go home

This is where we cried
tombstone of a
The sky is set in
Shades of gray
Cuz here you lay

Even if I was the key
I could never set you free
The sky is set in shades of gray
Cuz here you lay

Here you lay




what happend

all your new music is pop what happened to all the classical i miss the classical milkman-dan when is he coming back

MilkMan-Dan responds:

Your Right. We need some more classical up in here.

Good song - More clear words/dynamics wanted

My wife sorta likes it. She suggests the following to make it better.

1st Need to make it so someone can understand the lyrics better. When it was sung, there was more focus on the sound than the words (helpful lyrics post btw). The words were important, but the words weren't being delivered to the audience.

2nd When she could make out what they were saying, the music didn't quite get as powerful in a certain section that she believed it should have. The dynamics are slightly off.

Overall, not bad, although usually she doesn't assess songs. If she doesn't like a song, it usually can't be fixed. It was unusual that she could see how this song could be better.

People find this review helpful!

the lyrics i didnt like till the chorus where they fit perfectly. just need to work the rythm a tiny bit more. but other than perfect work great song
