Description
I'm pretty proud of this. I worked on this this morning, and, after listening to No Use by Indigoblu, I got the idea to steal his pan trick and pan lead and harm vocals to the left and right respectively. Layered a lot of harmony into this one as well. I think I like it just a tad more than the Spanish version. Decide for yourself.

Lyrics
I know that I'm not good enough
to grace your mind
And I know that I'm not beautiful
Why would you waste your time?
I know that I ain't worth
The energy to swallow
I'll never be the one you love
You follow

Please give me a reason to go
Open the door
Give me the razor
Let me be
Let me go

I know that you don't know me
You don't see me
You don't care
And I know
that you don't miss me
You don't notice when I'm not there
I know that I'm not worth
the wind between your lips
I'll never be
the one
You love, you miss

Please give me a reason to go
open the door
give me the razor
let me be, let me go

open the door
in a way leads me thinking of "Foolish Games"
by Jewel - in theme & vocal tonality - wide span layers / sustain /natural vibrato of your voice is expressive and appropriate here - the sigma quality is clean and full - yes - rustic - sincere

picking up the line...
Really nice lead-in with the guitars, and your layered vox are indeed mesmerizing, especially at this longingly slow pace (I think it is the perfect pace for this, the anticipation helps the pain sink in.) Panning the vox to either side does indeed work here because you balanced them well. Love it, you should be proud of this.
ttfn,
Drakonis

Great track! Wonderful vocals. Such lush harmonies. And the panning places each voice in it's own space. Good balance. I would do the same to the guitars. Although having them both in or near the center contributes to the track's character.

First off Natalie you have a great singing voice and a nice well controlled vibrato. Great song too. The panning, well, I would have probably kept the lead in the center and placed your most excellent harmonies behind the vocal and perhaps just slightly to the left and right. This would give your overall vocal performance a fuller sound and the vocals would not have the disconnect they do when panned so far from each other. Mind you there is absolutely nothing wrong with how you did it and it sounds great regardless. I am going to have to check out your other stuff cuz this is very good.

Welcome to MJ

Well expressed. Guitar's in the pocket and a solid backup to your fine vox.

Like this one too
I think this song could use a nice beat behind it too. Your voice really shines with a rhythmic beat behind it. Enjoyed it.

Who plays
guitar for you or do you play? Regardless I love the lazy easy feel to the guitar work. Your strength is definitely in vocal and harmony work. Outstanding again. Do you write your own words? You have a great thing going! Keep on makin music!
