Description
College is definitely an experience. It has its ups and downs. With it comes a lot of stress in workloads and majors and all of that stuff. Sometimes you can feel a bit lost trying to figure it all out. Recently I was able to kinda express in lyrics and song these feelings. I'm sure others can probably relate this song to their lives in some way or another though, that feeling of being lost and trying to figure out the right way for what works for them. Hope you enjoy it!

Lyrics
I know that I'm growin' up
And I gotta give life what I got
But sometimes I feel as if
My plans know less than when I was a kid

And the more life gets hard
My broken insides try to help guard
What's left of what I know
Before my spirit takes a trip to low

I got no clue of what I'm doing
Nor where the hell I'm going
Just wish I knew the way (the way)
Whatever way that works for me (works for me)
Before I'm too late (too late)
Before it's too late (too late)

(The way)
(Works for me)
(Too late)
(Too late)

Ice slowly melts beneath
Sneaking up to drown me
But maybe I'll be submerged
In the destiny that's unclearly urged

I got no clue of what I'm doing
Nor where the hell I'm going
Just wish I knew the way (the way)
Whatever way that works for me (works for me)
Before I'm too late (too late)
Before it's too late (too late)

(The way)
(Works for me)
(Too late)
(Too late)

Just listen to the clock tick booming (booming)
The future it's so close and looming (looming)
[Repeat to end...]

My honest feedback isn't good I am afraid.
Your vocals need to be in key with the song, A total re-sing or a fix up in Melodyne might help. Your breathing is awkward too, have a few more listens to the backings get the timing and pitch right and give it another shot, with those things in mind I think you may be on a winner.
On a better note this does have potential

a right of passage
you roll the lyrics out of your throat but it really growls the way it comes out against the thumping synth like how you play with the vocals around 1:53 very cool!

works for me
great concept - words and music.
some more bass would help drive it home - i like the breathing backup chords - you nailed it!

i must agree that the auto pitch correction is a little distracting - some tweaks or rerecording parts might help. but don't despair, your voice is lovely and you clearly can sing on key - just do a few more takes and choose a good one (if you've heard my singing you'll laugh: i have no creds on being a vocal critic!)

nicely done
thanks

Sounding good Jessica. I like your voice. It has a very nice tone to it. You placed the delay just right. Some very cool effects in there as well. Nice job!

Enjoyed - Thanks for sharing,

I like your approach to minimal synth backing, even though you know that I tend to be somewhat more maximal..

Your verses somehow sound flat wrt to the bass. Is there a pitch problem is or is that just my perception?

got that 80's feel. vocals are a bit wonky but that actually adds to the charm of it. vox in the chorus are much smoother.
