made for chips compo/weeklybeats earlier this year
--------
i take a step out of your front door
i turn and smile cause there is nothing left to run from
the sun will shine without help from me
every moment here is final
in spite of everything that we'll outlast
cause even stars had to die to make way for me

i remember my old debts
when i wake up in a cold sweat
all my feelings are hollow
and i can see where i'm followed
i hold on to the long nights
cause i'm afraid of long goodbyes

now every step is a commitment
to never turn and look at all you had to run from
you'll live your life without help from me
every moment is a trial
to fight the world you built inside your head
how many stars would you kill to make way for me?

and i remember my old debts
when i wake up in a cold sweat
all my feelings are hollow
and i can see where i'm followed
i hold on to the long nights
cause i'm afraid of long goodbyes
i'm afraid of long goodbyes

I like the quirky synths and the emotional appeal of the lyrics. Vocals themselves are really good too. I think the drums at 1:15 are a little too loud, and the snare sounds a bit biting given the smooth, sensual aspects of the lyrics and atmosphere of the song. I love the backing vocals and the moodiness, though. Really heart-felt song here, Midi. Production quality is great as always - really wet and full texture, yet crystal clear too. Keep up the great work!

Loved the vocals! they were put into the mix almost perfectly in my opinion, as well as a lot of the rest of the song, however I do feel that the first minute or so could've been a little more interesting, but that's just a personal nitpick.

The drums at the drop are very nicely done and work with the style very well other than a certain snare(?) used that just feels a little bit out of place. The vocals being woven into the drop so well surprised me a little too to be perfectly honest.

I do feel the kick could've have had a little bit of a higher end layered onto it.

Either way, it's a really nice track and it's very much well done! please continue doing what you do, it's incredible :)
