Getting Over You

Author Comments

EDIT (4/6/2015) Finally got around to fixing the intense vocal sibilance. Hopefully the song is bearable to listen to at higher volumes now!

A song loosely about love lost, and love found. Love in the Lost and Found.

With the sky in her eyes,
She saw through my disguise.
The whole world lingers
Around her trigger fingers,
To do as she desires;
Any moment ready to fire.

I don't mean to disillusion you,
But I'm not getting over you.
I love everything you do.
But you
Hardly even glance at me,
My invisibility;
You can't see me.

I'm a fly on the wall;
I can see it all.
And you're just pretending
That your broken heart is mending.
Wake up from a pipe dream -
It all comes apart at the seams.


She's light-years out of my league,
And I'm just one fish in the sea,
But between you and me,
I still prefer just to dream.


Update: I got over her

I had this song downloaded and on my mp3 player before it had finished playing. Your voice is incredible, and it fits in so naturally with the instruments! I especially loved the chorus <3 Keep up the excellent work!

Jacob responds:

Made my night even better, man. Thank you so much. And good luck in the NGADM! I'll be checking out your tunes very soon.

I loved your vocals on this, good depth and lovely vibrato control displayed throughout.
Good luck with NGADM!

Jacob responds:

Thank you! Vocals are so hard for me to objectively judge, and the vibrato in particular is something I'm trying to cut back on in pop music.
I really appreciate the support. It means a lot.
Good luck judging tons of dudes and dames fairly! I don't envy your position, but I admire the love and dedication it takes.

you made "this" song, "and" the animation?!

I'm going to say a solid 5/5, I say this because I think the lyrics are very solid. Not only the lyrics but the music is well made and your voice, I really want to comment on your voice. That first line in the chorus is actually my favorite, mostly because it carries so much personality with it. Your voice added a lot of character to this song and the way you sang the lyrics actually reminded me of how some powermetal lead singers do it. That's going to sound weird because this isn't powermetal but it's just the way your voice sounds to me, your voice sounds like it could pull of some of the vocal stunts they do in powermetal like Stratovarius

I love just about everything about this except the first line in your chorus seems way to strained/high pitched for your voice

Jacob responds:

Thank you for saying that. It hurts my ears every time, but no one seemed to agree with me. It's hard to discern issues with my own voice, so I really appreciate the feedback. High C# was a poor decision at this stage in my vocal development, haha.
