A song I wrote for Mary Anne :)

LYRICS

Mary Anne take my hand
Lead me through your secret land
Of your hopes and your dreams
Anything that makes you scream
And I will try to pull you through
I really would

Mary Anne help me stand
I will always be your man
Doesn't matter with our laughter
We'll get everything we're after
And life will be so grand
Oh Mary Anne

Mary Anne you're so sweet
Just to know you is a feat
But to love and adore you
Makes my whole life seem complete
Even if you don't love me
Mary Anne
I'll understand

But Mary Anne Mary Anne Mary Anne
You're the reason that I am
That I am that I am
Jus runnin through the street
Tryin to meet you in vain
Don't mind the pain

But Mary Anne Mary Anne Mary Anne
Just don't tell me that I can't
that I can't that I can't
Ever be with you cause you know it's true
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh...
My heart only longs YOU

Just wanted to say "Reminds me of the Beatles" but obviously I'm not the only one. Very nice and simple in a positive way.

Really cute sound design and feel-good lyrics here. The chord progression seems a tad generic, but the additional backing vocals at :53 were a nice touch. The lower-register vocals at 1:25 sounded like they would make a great breakdown/bridge, but then the piece ended. I think it’s worth your while to try to flesh out the texture a little more here. The overall structure of the piece is pretty flat, and I think it could use some more dynamic contrast, phrasing, and maybe an escalation of intensity (guitar solo?) at some point. I also think the lead vocals are quite as strong as I want them to be in the mix. Some more compression and other mixing effects might do the trick there. Overall, I love the thematic content of the piece, the sound design, and the vocals. You could’ve done a little more with the progression and arrangement here, though. Keep at it, JackBliss! :)

Wow thanks for the great detailed review :)

I really dig this one. The vocal harmonies and the rhythm are the star here. The strings are also very classy. A keeper for sure.

Just came across this song. Nice tune and lyrics. And like what the other guy said, it definately reminds me of the Beatles. Was this based on a particular one? Keep it up!

Holy shit...

you're like the next beatles!
