Fragile


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
This is a song about a close friend fighting a drug addiction and being able to see them getting worse and worse and being powerless to do anything to stop it. The underlying theme is the feeling that maybe you could have done more to help and the regret that a life can be wasted so early...



Thanks to Ringo for his valuable feedback during production.

Lyrics

Oh my love,

I don't know if I've got the words to say.

I never thought I'd have to sit and watch you waste away.



You've had enough.

You don't know what it is you're taking away.

You think it's easier to suffer pain than live another day.



She's a car crash, a red light,

She's the argument you wish you'd never had.

She's the love you never met.

She's the fragile stepped on eggshells,

She's the bitterness that always lasts.

Never listened to a word you said.



Oh my love,

The rings around your eyes were getting darker each day.

I can't believe that you could let yourself be taken that way.



One more high was enough to see you through, but not without a scar.

Play long enough and the house will beat you,

And it ripped her soul apart.



She's a car crash, a red light,

She's the argument you wish you'd never had.

She's the love you never met.

She's the fragile stepped on eggshells,

It's the bitterness that always lasts.



She's a car crash, a red light,

She's the mistake that you hoped you'd never make.

She's the words you still regret.

She's so fragile, stepped on eggshells,

She's the promises you never kept.

Never listened to a word you said.

You said one day she'd end up dead.

She never listened to a word you said.



She's so fragile, stepped on eggshells.

Wow- Great song
This is a powerful song on a lot of levels. I love the
melody, the hook is great. The words are excellent and
paint a sadly in focus picture of your friends addictions.
You're voice rocks. The harmonies and background vocals
add a great feel to this.

9,9,9,9.

I can't believe I didn't come upon your posting sooner!

RE: Wow - Great song
This isn't actually written from personal experience. The
close friend is made up, I just find it easier to write songs
if I have a story in my head. Then, like writing a book, the
detail of the story is what makes it believable so I try to
put myself into situations and imagione what they would
be like when I write.

Some of my stuff *is* auto-biographical but this isn't one
of them. Just thought I'd mention it in case anyone felt
bad.

Great chorus
Great chorus, great lyrics and vocals and everything. I like
the introduction of the electric guitar to add variation.
Don't know if I'd start it out with a drum loop since the
loops is sort of repetitive and having it be the intro makes
it more prominent in my memory as the song moves
forward than it needs to be. (Even tho you did good job
adding fills now and again, especially on the chorus.) The
song is mixed well, altho I could use more bass line
playing (in more than the chorus and bridge.) I like that
one moment you go into falsetto, very nice. Well balanced
arrangement and thought thru track. Really nice.

real nice
When i hear those videos on mtv I am older so I don't
listen or view that show that much. But it seems form the
current sound that I hear that are popula, yours seems to
fit in nicely. You have an all around nice sound, nice beat
and very touching words. Your vocals are in tune, i like
your harmony. I can see you put in some very nice work. I
hope you get higher in your score!! I know I will give you a
much higher score for sure.

Bravo

Good luck to you.
