Description
Yet another song about a broken heart. And let me tell you I learned "a lot" about Garage Band with this one! Thanks for the suggestion of the challenge on this. And thanks to JD and crissew for their technical advice. This is another song stemming for a one liner from an old friend..."If you see me on the street."

Lyrics
Times escaping and I hope that you will be
Happier now, that you're not here with me
You know what I want and all that I can be
Given half the chance to show you
You would see

And if you see me on the street
I have just one thing to ask you please
Just let me be, don't even talk to me
Cause I don't need this pain or agony

Times Escaping and it's been another year
All the bad's reoccurring and I just don't want to hear
Than you are leaving make me swallow my pride
You know that I'll be lonely without you…by my side

Times escaping, it's been a long day
Because by now I know what you're going to say
And times escaping and it won't be too long
Until I realize, that I was in the wrong

Times Escaping and it's been another year
All the bad's reoccurring and I just don't want to hear
Than you are leaving make me swallow my pride
You know that I'll be lonely without you…by my side

I'm so sorry to have made you cry
To bring it to this one final word…
Goodbye.

Great song! Love the chord changes! Great guitar sound. The vocal is outstanding. The panning and effects on the vocal is a great way to add variation in a two track song. Wow!

Intimate...
Hi Jody. Really good entry for the 2-track. The intimacy of a solo vocal and an acoustic guitar is hard to beat. Nice trick re the panning vocals helps add interest. A heartfelt song. P.S. I really like the echo ending. Congratulations. Regards, Peter.

Great
variation in the sound thanks to the vocal panning, which initially surprised me.... I like the way you use the 'Ah's' to great effect and the megaphone effect at the end gives the feel of that 'inner voice'. Excellent strident guitar throughout.... good one, regards M

Strong
Strong song, this, to my ear. Very solid guitar, and it sounds like you have had fun with GB.

The panning effects bring a sort of dislocated, ever-so-slightly on the edge quality, and the guitar is strummed so hard that it teeters on the brink of desperation at times which accentuates the hurting, emotional rollercoaster of the lyrics. Interesting variations here, and all well-executed.

Enjoyed. Thanks

Wonderful work Jody
has a little of the early Steven Stills feel to it. He had a way of panning his guitar I read about once - something about separating frequencies and splitting them. Nice vocal effect you get here.

bud said 2452 days ago (March 2nd, 2011)
I tried to find the article yesterday
and drew a blank. It might be in Neil Young's book Shakey. As I recall - he would double the guitar track and EQ one for bass and mid - and the other for mid and high and then pan them right and left.

Hauntingly folkish
Like a medieval minstrel down a high wall ... singing over forsaken love. Sad. Some anger. Revenge in the heart! I like this a lot! Very original presentation.

The comment above from Bud had me chasing Stephen Stills secrets to recording acoustic guitar. And I think I've come to the conclusion that I can't divulge that information!

jody - what a cool intro...love the eastern chant and the open riff. almost sounds like a sitar.
very atmospheric chorus and love the chanting again. great vocal delivery and well constructed conversational lyrics. the overall sixties folk ethereal thing you have going on is my kind of thing. nice transition at 3.45 with that delay echo effect on the final vocal. excellent.

Oy,will you sit still though...all this walking through me head....left lug,right lug...middle don't know where you are going to be next.....how do you do that btw?

First off
this is a great song. great job singing and the guitar sound is very nice. I'm way guilty of boing bonkers with and insane amount of tracks to a song. My current one has about 30 tracks, 14 of which are vocals and their harmonies, so its nice to hear a FULL sounding 2 track song. Nice production on this. Good stuff.

Good use
of your 2 tracks! I don't know what troubles Garage Band gave you with this one, but all worked out in the end! You've struck a lovely balance between completeness and nakedness here (nowhere to hide with only two tracks!), and the result is strangely "prog-y", like an interlude on a Van Der Graaf Generator record. Nice job.
