Lyrics
Starin' out the window of my car,
Wonderin' where you are.
Starin' at the pavement out ahead,
Would have been better if I was dead.

And I've tried to move away.
And I've tried to come back again.

Lyin' on the floor lookin' at the heel of her shoes,
It's then I realize i've been used.
So I try to speak but all that comes out is noise,
You don't because your off with other guys.

Chorus

I'm so lonley
I'm so lonley
I'm so lonley
With out you.

Now I feel sick for the third time this week,
But there's nothing I can do my heart's sprung a leak.
I wanna speak so I call you on the phone,
But you don't want to speak you want to be left alone.

Chours

pretty good
The lead vocal seems a little off pitch frequently, but it's not that big a deal, it makes it seem more urgent. The harmony vocal seems more on pitch so maybe you just need to do another take of the lead vocal and try to stay more on pitch. It's not that big a deal, but in terms of good or bad, a lot of people would think that being on pitch is good and being off pitch is bad. In a way it is more lonely to be off pitch, it's like the crack in your voice is plaintive and desperate, so I think it's not necessarily bad when it goes along with the message of the song. The vocals seem a bit loud and I don't hear much in the way of a bass sound, so the mix could use some work but I'm not listening to it on my regular monitors right now and this is just my impression after listening to the song a couple times.

Thanks
Yeah...the vocals were recorded in a bit of a rush. I kinda got to a point where I just wanted to finish the song. Thank you for your comments though. It was very helpful.

man
i really like this. it doesn't sound like folk rock to me though, more like post punk. I really like the way your voice sounds though, as Jim says, it's a little off, but who cares? maybe try lowering the backups a little so they blend more. this kind of reminds me of new order or joy division. really great song.

Thanks.
Right...looks like it needs more mixing and a re-record of the vocals. Thanks again for your comment. I also meant to put above it also sounds like the Killers. They were a big influence on this track.

actually
I think this is a cool song...needs a few more vocal overdubs(def double the lead and quad after that) and it could use live drums....but you are on your way here.....

great start....peace
