This is my submission for the NGRMC Remix contest. Hope you guys like it!!

EDIT: Forgot to put the lyrics, here you go:

I was too young
to understand it
nothing's for granted

Now I wonder
Will it even matter?
is it too late?

If there was a way
I'd give it all away
just to make the world sing
rid of all the pain

If there is a chance
I'll do all I can
Just to make the world dance
rid of all disdain

It can be hard
to remind myself
that this might be right

I can't be alone
Is this mission
worth a try

I WISH!!! But thanks for that huge compliment!!

I like how you are crafty with words and how you make your production simple, less is more in music and I see that you got that pretty much alright, on the other side... Beginning is too simple ๐Ÿ˜‚ its too plain, but overall, me like it ๐Ÿ˜

I love this song! I would make the vocals a bit louder and add more instruments and reverb towards the end to make it more impactful and bigger, and you could sing louder towards the end too to give it more variety a building up effect, you start smooth and end it big and impactful, but overall really nice composition and structure, i love the vibes :)
9/10

Thanks, Ill take the advice and make some adjustments. Please keep being constructive critics n.n. Oh and thanksbfor listening!

That beginning was pretty sweet. I wish the piano had some more reverb. The lyrics were pretty cool. I think both the piano and the reverb could have used more reverb. Then the drums and synths were really nice. The rest of the song was really nice and calm.
The only thing I really have a problem with is the vocal mixing. Yes this is a very difficult process and I wonโ€™t take off a lot. What I would have liked is sort of a stereo image and more reverb. And again it depends on what mic you use. Iโ€™d recommend watching a lot of vocal mixing tutorials to make your vocals sound better and warmer.
I loved this remix. Everything went together perfectly. The melodies were nice, calm, and relaxing along with the vocals. Even though it was only the first entry, I think this one will be my favorite.
9.5/10
