Hurts Me Every Time

Share

Author Comments

One of the first songs I wrote and had recorded back in 2011/2012, my voice has gotten a lot less shaky since then, but I hope you like it.

LYRICS:

Watching you fall
Watching it all
You couldn't do this all alone (Oh)
You're closer to breaking
My hands are shaking
I want to help you out (Somehow)
You cant keep denying
You've got to start trying

Can you hear my screams?...
My screams...

I'm begging, pleading to you
To stop these things you do
It hurts me every time...
I'm begging, pleading to you
To stop these things you do
It hurts me every time
To know that you just lied...

Taking the fall
Taking it all
You shouldn't face this all alone (Alone)
You're pointlessly chasing
This dead end you're facing
I need to pull you out (Somehow)
Its time to stop hiding
I know that you're lying

Can you hear my screams?...
My screams...

I'm begging, pleading to you
To stop these things you do
It hurts me every time...
I'm begging, pleading to you
To stop these things you do
It hurts me every time
To know that you just lied...

Reminds me of something hmm, wonder what, Sum 41, Avril Lavigne, some other artist that doesn't come to mind as possibly sounding a little like this... some really familiar melody here but can't quite place it... anyway this was great, shaky voice or no, seems like a common initial move to add in a little extra vibrato too whether you need it or not. :)

My only woe with it is that it doesn't really seem to build... it goes on for so long yet in the end has been so consistent all the way. The lyrics are great, there's nothing bad about it musically, I just don't get as emotional as I feel I could've for some reason, thinking maybe that could be it...

Sounds heartfelt though! Nice work.

Kept hoping for you to really push your voice, hoping for an all out voice. Never happened. But this is really good nonetheless, and as always, there is room for improvement. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing. And also, this song screams for an electric guitar riff!

xWhitexFlamex responds:

Well at the time I was 16, and I have never had any formal training in vocals so I was in the early stages of my voice and didn't have much of a push then. But thank you, if you have the time check out my other acoustic tracks. "As they All Fall..." has a solo and is a couple years newer.

Will probably always be my favorite song from you.

...Unless our Endgame tracks are phenomenal.
