Description
Here's a stripped down version of what's next on my list. I'd like it to have a Spanish feel to it when it's finished. Let's see what happens. What do you hear?
The song is about an abusive relationship.
1st Verse...
He comes home intoxicated and continues with the abuse.
She dreams of leaving but is scared.
2nd Verse...
She's out drinking and forgets all that has happened.
Chorus...
Is in the third party telling the guy to show her another way to love her.
Instead of the jealousy and be aware of his actions.
3rd Verse...
The sad part of murder/suicide
Chorus and verse is just to say that they're not the last couple to do this.
Someone will do it again.

Lyrics
Sometimes in the darkness, sometimes in her dreams
She can feel him coming, but it's not as it seems
She's waiting for the nightmare to be over
So she can…begin again

One more shot of tequila, the lights are glowing dim
Her body's warm now on fire she really wants him
She's waiting for the time to start her life over
So she can…begin again

Can't you find another way to tell her you love her
Can't you find another way to show her that you care
It's times like these that you want to tell her
It's times like these that you've got to be aware

Through the months of all the stormy weather
Through all the grief and the pain
The time has come for them to finally be together
Their love shall forever remain

Can't you find another way to tell her that you love her
Can't you find another way to show her that you care
It's times like these that you want to tell her
It's times like these that you've got to be aware

Sometimes in the darkness, sometimes in her dreams
She can feel him coming, but it's not as it seems
She's waiting for the nightmare to be over
So she can…begin again

firsties!
I'm gonna pm you my lengthy comment, my main point was that as a listener I'm having difficulty trying to figure out what this song is about, and there seems to be no hook? It's got lots of potential, I'll pm you! Really like the progression and feel!

Powerful
Powerful song, Jody. Powerful performance. Your vocals are really strong and the chord progression adds to the tension in the song. There is a hint of Spanish feel to sections of the song. I like this pared down solo version fine. I can imagine hearing this played in a small club and really liking it. Take care, Peter.

It's an all too familiar scenario that is silenced. Thanks for listening.

Nice progressions, and the stripped down acoustic provides a nice bed for the excellent vocals.

Sad, but Great
Wow, what a sad song, but a sadder reality for many.

It sounds great, are you still working on it? If I may suggest, when you mix your vocals, soften them just a tad. Especially on the "but it's not as it seems" & "on fire she really wants him".

Nonetheless it's a powerful song & sung terrifically.

Thanks Raven
Yes,I am still working on it. It was just a rough draft to listen to what the other voices in my head were telling me. I will keep in mind your suggestions.

Cool tune
I don't know about the hook part. I find it very listenable as it is!

Yes Mark
as Jd points out, no hook. I, for one, am not the conventional songwriter. I approach my songs as a storyteller. Most don't even have a chorus in them. I know I'm going to take a lot of heat on my future posts for not being like the others. But I always was a bit strange!
Thanks for listening.

dark subject matter
perhaps the lyrics are a little too vague, and lack the punch that this important saga requires (making it third-person adds to the disconnect)... and although I would prefer a little more style-separation between verse and chorus as far as guitar playing, overall I really love the guitar work and emotion in the singing, the music is insistent and compelling. Good draft, and well worth working on!
ttfn,

You put
a lot of feeling in your lyrics and your delivery. Absolutely correct in that many couples are caught up in a nightmare relationship that most are powerless to understand, change or end. Thanks.

Begin Again
This is a fine tune with an important social message. I hear more of a straight forward rock style - but that's probably because I am more of a straight forward rock kind of guy. Honestly though just guitar and vocals suits this song well. Enjoyed - thanks!

Passionate song
Your voice has a Del Shannon kinda sound to it at times. Very cool. Love this. Great stuff. I agree with Ravens about the vocal levels. The intentional voice cracking parts should just be a subtlety but it comes through louder than the vocal. Great tune man.

Great start!
Jody, your subject matter is one deserving of exposure and you are to be commended for tackling it. I'm sure you'll make a good song out of it. Personally I think the tempo may be a bit speedy.
