Ton Garçon


Is it happenstance
or am I just dreaming
Did I fall in love
in the back of my Sebring?
You look at me
what are we doing?
Just bring me back
I want to hear you laughing

Is this wonderful
or am I just lying
In just two weeks
I had you crying
We have tendencies
to get frustrated
Oh well at least
We were both trying

Don't try so hard
to not impress me
We've gotten nowhere
But we're still progressing
We can sit in silence
to not say we're sorry
But i'll have you wincing
until you undress me

If I'm a broken record
you're a broken cassette
I'll repeat myself
and you'll just forget
a few months pass
a few things have changed
but not enough
to make it feel strange

Shy love, shy love
Don't walk away
Shy love, shy love
I want you to stay
Shy love shy love
Don't walk away from me
Shy love shy love
What does it mean

What do you believe

I need you to breathe.


I can't hear your voice! A good tip for decent mixing is listen to a favorite song of a similiar style and then listen to your own at the same volume. Think about the hierarchy of importance: does the guitar really come above the vocals? I recommend equalizing the vocals as well as it all sounds a hollow.
I really don't like the tone of the guitar playing the chords either, it's so thick and crunchy its details are lost. I don't think it's appropriate for the style of song either, it's seems far too heavy.
But all these things are relatively easy to fix! Spending a bit more time thinking about them can really help improve your songs. The actual composition of this piece sounds decent. I like your singing style. The structure is a little repetitive but the bass keeps it rolling along and it has a fun mood. I like the lyrics and the sentiment expressed particulary the lines "If I'm a broken record [...] and you'll just forget"
Keep at it!
