Lyrics
Sometimes there’s dark places
Deep within us all
Some call it their secrets
Some call it their wall

I call it a black spot
It’s a scar on my soul
It rests there as a reminder
That I am no longer whole

I tried to show you
but you just couldn’t see
the secret I’ve held tight
that’s become part of me

I opened my soul
and gave you my heart
but your ears could not hear me
and you tore it apart

and now I burn and I bleed
and I cannot look back
I’ve re-locked my soul
an acid that burns black

So goodbye my love
It was not meant to be
I will let you go
I will set you free

That's a nice production!
Fantastic vocals all the way, great mix of instruments. Makes me think of a mix between Grace Jones and Garbage. That vocal at the beginning sounds like a Theremin.

Thanks Bent ....
... no Theramin's were hurt during the making of this production .... but speaking of which I wouldn't mind playing around with it ... I had a plug in once upon a few computers ago .... I may need to see if I can find those all again ... gave me a lot more FX to tinker around with ...

Thanks Vic ....
... as with a lot of my "tinkers" I never really know when to shut up ... hence the abundance of buried vocals .... heh heh

Perfect title! Fits the mood of the backing track perfectly. Great lyrics Alannah and you deliver them with great emotion. Great melody. The slow moving melody allows each word to drip out to full effect. You're once again in great voice. Your vibrato is on great display here. Nice mix. There's some clipping in places. But that's a minor thing that never detracts from the beauty of the song.

Thanks A ...
... yes the clipping ... I get that sometimes from forgetting to move away from the mic during the heavier parts and then have a problem trying to mix them back out ..... a re-sing? what .... NEVA ! hahahaha

Dark soulfulness
What a combo!! Fantastic vocal just so well matched to this genre. Beautiful music and interweaving backing vocals - gets across the mood superbly. Only criticism is sometimes the sound is a bit distorted?

Alannah said 2303 days ago (June 3rd, 2011)
Thanks Mos ....
... the distortion is my fault in my inability to mix properly ... and ... um .... perhaps my overly ridiculous addiction to FX ... reverb ...echo ... etc. ... (heh heh) ...

Strong and dark.
Not pretty, but with a haunting beauty nonetheless. The tune, arrangement, and vocals all work together to great effect. Perfect pairing.
