more gay synthpop, more on the ambient side of things though
thrown together in a day for weeklybeats 2012. ya'll should get in on it.

closing my eyes, pursing my lips
and searching for something i can hear
waiting for sleep, parsing the silence
between the ringing in my ears

love is blind inside my mind
but i won't wake up this time

slowing my steps in lucid unrest
all the better years are flashing by
holding my tongue, i reach for the sun
but it's turning into dust and now it's night

love is made of living clay
formed at night and smashed by day
all these dreams won't be complete
until you ground my feet and wake me

Lovely song and very pleasant vocals :) Unlike others I don't mind the reverb (or rather the ammount of it) - depending on each person's audio system it can get cluddered and seem too much, or not. But it does its job at opening the song and adding a new spacial dimension to the song. Overall the song has a nice flow to it, the music ideas are coherent and it simply sounds right. I don't downgrade songs based on technicalities - I'm interested in the emotion & ideas behind it - so you get 5 stars from me :) Keep up the good work & all the best :)

Song is pretty chill. Vocals are nice, although seem a bit spotty at times. I really like the change at 1:05, when the drums and whatnot come in. The lyrics seem a tad teenager-y for my tastes though. Something about the song just doesn't feel complete though. I think if you added some low-bass to help fill out the low-end more it may help. I think if the song ended on a very high moment, with like the drums going strong it may have helped end it better.

you can sing! if that was you.... great job though
