Description
Another Demo, a bit better then the last one. This Was written and recorded in a couple of hours. Im quite happy with the result here, even threw in some Harmonyvocals. Another interesting thing about this song, is that its the first song I have ever written in third person!

Lyrics
He could have been another man
If he had finished what he planned
everythin he wanted to become
he threw it out, then he ran

noone heard his cry for help
they where just thinking of themselves
everything they wanted to become
they left the man on his own

who will be able to
live with themselves
The one who fucked it up
or the ones who didnt make him stop

He went away for several years
They didnt even give him tears
All he wanted was an easy way
He cried and he craved

They lived a life in harmony
Noone thaught them how to see
they didnt need to search for the path
If theres a god hell give them wrath

who will be able to
live with themselves?
The one who fucked it up?
or the ones who didnt make him stop?

i love that you didn't
take off the little shuffle and the cough at the beginning - your voice/s is gorgeous on this and i love the whispery bit. the song reminds me of 'nowhere man' by the beatles. thank you for sharing xox

Ahh yes.
Nice diddy. I agree with the above commentor in that I like the whisper-
like singing.

It sounds like an innocent song and then that 'fucked' comes in all of the
sudden. I didn't see it coming because I'm too lazy read along with lyrics.

All in all, good job, I like it.

speedy
this has more speed and intensity then you ussually do i like that. your demo cuts are good. sometimes the quick recordings make us wonder why we ever spends months on one song. the harmonies sound interesting. almost gets a beatles sound at parts. another good track.

love it.
this is a great song!

what you always say about your best songs being the most 'inspired'. the
ones that write themselves through you somehow. this is clearly one of
those.

the guitar's great. i love the harmony on the first 'who will be able to'.

i'm on my second listen - don't know what else to say. oh, is that the uke
appearing again?

Lovely
Your voice sounds pretty nice in this one - nice harmonies - and once
again you've written really interesting lyrics.
I also really like the simplicity of this, makes it much closer and personal,
somehow.
Very nice.

memorable melody
Well crafted song. Singing is very accessable and enjoyable. Great performance. I would hesitate from using profanity only because it may be enough to distract listeners. I aggree with Caroline, you have aBeatles thing going here, that's GREAT!

Thanks a lot. I do agree with you about the profanity, I hesitate to use it all the time, but his I chose to do it. And well, I admit it might not be a good thing. Again, Thank you for your comment!

The Selters Thing
To me you have gone way past Beatle comparisons. I know your style
and voice so well now that it can only be called the Selters sound! You
are capable of many different styles and vocal styles. Your writing
continues to expand and go farther than before. In all it's another
Selter's classic, not anyone else!

hmmm....
don't we all fuck up sometime? great vocals and lyrics...the sound quality is very good for a "demo" version...what kind of acoustic guitar did you play on this song?...the guitar has a very warm tone, and your singing is very tender, with all the pensiveness of a craving soul...I especially like the line "If there's a god he'll give them wrath"...interesting that this is the first song in which you wrote in third person...are you trying to be "another man" by singing in third person?...don't stop because I like your vocals and lyrics...can't bring the years back and too late for tears, but I could lend you my ears....

hmmm....
The guitar is a quite Cheap Morgan Guitar.It has been everywhere, and looks quite tired, but for some reason i feel the sound of it becomes better and better!

wow
Love this. Great job. Super harmonies. Nice layering. Effortless! I
like that. I really like your first third person song! You have a really
easy-to-listen-to voice. I really like the tonal quality. Thanks for
giving us this song. kelli

sad tale
Although nicely played, the guitar is not entirely tuned. I'd like to hear
a version with fewer vox doubling and harmony tracks. In this
particular song, the multiple voicings are getting in the way of
communicating the message. Do a solo version for me...as you might
sing it in a cafe or restroom. Maybe, as compromise, start out with a
single voice, then build slowly toward harmonies, especially as you hit
"They lived a life in harmony". So who is this "third person" you are
singing about? Sounds like a sad tale.
