Description
I was refered to this a great track created by Nick Flash by my friend "Ktb" who said "This is one for you." I asked Nick if I could have a go at it...made double sure that he heard my stlye and he said go for it. I can only say that I fell in love with the music. It happens that I still dont have a mic but cant stop recording. I wanted this to be a love song but in classic form couldnt stop myself from twisting it up a bit. I hope you all enjoy it.

Lyrics
the straight line
that im walking baby
its the same line
youre crossing for me
ill do anything now
to hear what you say
I wont let your words
just slip away

I cant lose you again
I need you to pick me up
when I have fallen
Ill step back from the edge
if youll give me your love
If youll give me your heart
to hold onto

ill paint my fence pickets white
ill work that nine to five
ill do everything just right
to keep you here with me

If i hang my mood swings
from that old oak tree
would you take one more ride
would you swing with me

I cant lose you again
I need you to pick me up
when I have fallen
Ill step back from the edge
if youll give me your love
If youll give me your heart
to hold onto

I just cant let you go
without letting you know
I get in my own way
But if i cant change
then maybe you can stay
and let me get in your way

face to face and breath to breath
only the world to watch us fail again
take my hand and let go now
because baby at the end we slow down

I cant lose you again
I need you to pick me up
when I have fallen
Ill step back from the edge
if youll give me your love
If youll give me your heart
to hold onto

I just cant let you go
without letting you know
I get in my own way
But if i cant change
then maybe you can stay
and let me get in your way


out goes you broken eyes
that looked at a broken heart
that led a broken life
that was broken from the start

Great Guitar Tone
This song is solid. The Guitar Tone kicks ass and the drums sound great. The Vocals are very good and the bass playing is good and the tone fits nice. Great song overall.
Thanks Mike

Thanks for listening and your kind comments. The music is great. Maybe we can get Nick to stop in and share with us how he recorded it and what he was thinking.

You are
always coming up with amazing lyrics and wonderfully expressive vocals. Nick's sound bed is wonderful and you are doing it great justice.
I am even more impressed that you did this without a mic - great trick - might be worth millions to you.
Joking apart, if you can sound this good with just a pin hole mic, we are in for a big treat when you finally kit yourself out.
Cheers
Len

Great set
of pipes on ya kid. Great songwriting Gaylen and Nick. I think I would like to hear it without the back up vocals in the Chorus. To my ear they distract from an otherwise awesome vocal performance.
Peace

I hear what you are saying about the chorus vocal. I am sick and the vox are a little rough this time but maybe a re-record of the lead and solo would do the trick. I will look into it and thanks for the advice and litsten!

Dang it you guys!
I keep trying to remind myself that I "do not like alternative rock"... but then you come up with this that just cannot be ignored, it just gets in my way, and I can't let it just slip away. Nick's music and guitar work is great, and Gaylen twists this up like a tourniquet. Great lyrics and singing, as usual. What's not to like here?
ttfn,

great finish
Thanks for adding the great vocals Gaylen. I love the way it came out. Very different than the way I might have taken the vox but that's what I like about it.

I did the music pretty quick one weekend. Nothing special really - I just got a new guitar and was inspired. I plug directly in and use the amp simulators in GB. Drums are all Drums on Demand loops.

Thanks everyone for all the positive comments. Gaylen's one heck of a vocalist huh?

yo
I forget what song this is. lol. I'll be honest this sounds almost exactly like a song ive heard before mid to late 90s ( at least the chorus ). ( the verve? ) for the life of me i cant remember. anyways not my style music, too poppy and generic...but this production and vocals are welll done. Very clean sound. for ones who enjoy this genre and style they are gonna love this. bass has a great sound. Great work.

Good tune
Very nicely done. A real professional sound. Well constructed song - vocals sound a bit Bowieish. The echo on the guitar works really well.

Enjoyed this the other day
But somehow I think my comment got swallowed by the Internet, or my failure to finish it.

Wait, Gaylen, somehow I missed that your vox are with the LAPTOP mic!!! I am totally in AWE of the sound you get, in that case. You should get some kind of special award for getting so much life and energy out of a built-in computer mic.

Enjoyed this specific tune as well of course.... some of my favorite elements are lyrical (hang my mood swings verse may be my favorite lyrical turn...)
