Lyrics
it's blacker than the night
and the tears keep falling down
the nights last forever
when you're gone

i can barely breath
but i'm crawling through the dark
and i can barely speak
so i'm waiting silently for

a hope that isn't there for
a shadow that isn't real for
an angel that is gone for
prayers you never see

i'm clawing through the hole
bury myself deeper
i'm clinging to the death
that burns inside drowning me

and i can barely breath
but i'm crawling through the dark
and i can barely speak so
i'm waiting silently

my fire's burning out
my soul is breaking now
and i can feel the cracks
shatter from with in
through the pieces of the glass in your soul

one night could mean eternity
one day could break your spirit down
one act of lonely screams unheard you'll lose yourself

There's a soulful character to the song. Expressive lyrics. The change is voice tone at 2:30 is welcome, as I would probably prefer the vocal to have more clarity in the mix than you give it, although I guess, given the subject matter, that may be intentional to create the "blacker than the night" mood that runs through the song. Synth backing holds the song together well. Powerful music.

thanks
yeah, i wanted the vocal to have a bit of a haunting feel in the start and sort of build up in emotion. glad you enjoyed it. it sounds best on headphones the vocals are a little more clear that way. it's hard to fully hear the mix on speakers as my laptop has horrible speakers.

It has a warmth to it that fills my headphones like the low end in this, The violin adds great dimension, some nice lyrics melancholy but effective I enjoyed!
