Lyrics
The smell of roses in the air.
Sweet conversations are no longer there.
And how could you forget
what you had from me?
What you got from me?

Break me off a piece of what you want.
Tell me all the things that make you calm.
The smell of roses brings me back,
but I dont want to go back.

If I was wrong again you'd be my right.
If I went blind again you'd be my sight,
but you don't want to believe in me.
Why don't you want to believe?

Break me off a piece of what you want.
Tell me all the things that make you calm.
The smell of roses brings me back,
but I don't want to go back.
Break me off what you want.
Tell me all that makes you calm.
The smell of roses brings me back,
but I don't want to go back.

It's all I have to give you what you want.
All that's left to give will let you go,
but you don't want to believe in me.
And I don't want to go back.

Breaking up
is never easy and it sucks for a bit, but the pain sure stimulates some great emotional song content.

Keep bringin' um! The process is workin', catharsis by any name is never fun, but I hear it nailed-rare indeed!

thanks for noticing
I discovered while recording this a few nights ago that my performance is much better when I don't hear the vocals/guitar being recorded. After that it just flowed. Thanks again!

Ryan, keep on keepin on! I have enjoyed your work since you came to town.
Recording is different game for anyone. I recall a vocalist would couldn't do his thing unless he was riled up and angry. Me, I have to hear the thing and "be invisible."

nice!
i like the loose indie feel, the little lead, the simple solo, and the stops. the melody reminds me of oasis, not a bad thing, and the lyrics are deceptively simple - i dig that 'but you don't want to believe in me/and i don't want to go back' line.

Tempie beat me
to the Oasis comment. Or early 70's stones (which I think Oasis is ripping off more than the Beatles). Very nice!

good one!
cool song, I like the melody and the guitar parts a lot.
the drum track was a bit up front for my taste and there were a couple of wonky parts to it... otherwise I thought it was quite perfect. cool when the piano comes in esp.
very musical overall. look forward to more of your stuff!

I started writing music the day I picked up my first guitar. I couldn't play any "real" songs, so I just messed around until I found something I thought was cool. Eventually, I learned songs from my favorite bands, but I never lost the desire to wr... [see more]
