Description
this song was inspired by a terrible day and my wonderful new fender champion 600.

i say fuck and i talk about not being able to get it up. guard the young years.

wrote it yesterday, recorded today. leave me alone.

wanna lay down some drums?

i started a forum about a possible collab... any interest?

Lyrics
i wanna love but i just can't grow
i wanna leave you and darling it shows
i want a place i can call my own
somewhere where nobody's home

sometimes i can't sleep at night
can't fight the feeling that nothing's right
but i get up every day
and try to find another way

i want a life i just don't have
i want a life i just don't have

i hate my body and i hate my friends
i just hope that someday this ends
i have a feeling somebody knows
but it's something nobody shows

i need a job to pay my bills
but that won't cure my ills
i still think about you everyday
but we're out of things to say

i want a life i just don't have
i want a life i just don't have

i want to fuck but just for fun
can't get it up not for anyone
wanna get close to you
but let me guard down is something i can't do

can't let you in cause i wanna get out
i wanna run away and shout
go on a killing spree
maybe then i'll finally feel free

i want a life i just don't have
i want a life i just don't have
i want a life i just don't have

i don't care anymore
i'm so over it
i don't care anymore
i couldn't give a shit
if i tried
and i tried

WOW ....
Love your lyrics ..... as I said in the chat ... thank God that musicians can get this stuff we feel out there in lyrics cause most of the world feels it .. they just can't seem to say it .... (well not without losing our jobs or friends anyway) ... luvvin the whole ED verse ... (but that is a story itself there ....) musically my fav part was towards the end when you added the FX to the last verse ... sounded good ....

hey alannah - thanks! nice running into you in chat, too.

(i like the end the best, too.)

Wow, good work here!
Excellent tune, catchy, really well played and sung, and good lyrics too... I guess things have to get bumpy for us to get really inspired, sometimes. Recording and levels seem quite good. It could possibly have dabs of other instruments, but for the most part, this feels good in its raw guitar-only form here. I would work on tightening up the lyrics in a couple of places where they feel a little cramped, but other than that, this is really good songwriting, Darren! I like the depressing lyrics against an upbeat song, it works.
ttfn,
Drakonis

still thinking about what else to do with this, but i agree i'd like some more instruments going on. may play around with more guitar. or drums if anyone takes that challenge.

anyway - thanks for the comments as always!

many parts
to make a whole here; you keep great time! :)

I love the drops to mellow and sparse guitar, then fill back to full throttle - cool undulation.

You also have quite an impressive vocal capacity that would make many envious - wow. Nice

urbnite said 3971 days ago (January 26th, 2008)
parts.
hey harold -

thanks for the comment. it may be less parts than you think! i want more. ha.

parts
well, I guess I meant the segments of the song progression, not the elements of instrumentation, etc.; I do a terrible job of explaining what I mean - I'm kind of lame in that area...
MJG said 3971 days ago (January 26th, 2008)
I think you....
maybe need too just get some lovin:) Enjoyable guitar, and groovy little number, I also agree w/Alannah, the FX's on the last verse(vocals)really shows were you can take this tune too. Perhaps a lead guitar or organ, also plays nicely on it's own, good song.

hey there -

thanks for comments & suggestions. i also like the end. i do want to do more with this... might take a bit of time, though.

Agree ..

.. with Caroline .. this is one of the best I've heard from you and it is often in the doldrums you find the best inspiration .. how's that for one of lifes twists?

Liked the kinda Joni Mitchell strum/rhythm to the guitars.. and I've missed that clean, crisp sound a Fender Champion has .. I got one too .. but a baby 110 model.

Nice use of 'pen' too ;o) .. I find myself on worn out red felt tips these days :o)

a penny for your thoughts
hey thanks apb...

this is a new version of a little 5W amp from the 50s or something. all tubes, but a baby. i love it, though. perfect for recording in my little room it would seem!

i like the fine point pilot rollerballs, myself. i've got a ton if you're ever in need... :)

ajnorth said 3971 days ago (January 26th, 2008)
cool song.
To be honest I really like it the way it is. Sounds like it should be the last track on a CD. Would be interested to hear with other instruments, but I like some songs stripped to just guitar and vocals.

Nice track
Great track, and really great vox. I 've got a massive backlog of stuff, otherwise I'd play about with this... i may see how things are in a couple of months.

great
lyrics and excellent singing. It's the kind of song that wouldn't sound any better with the backings you mention.... just 'different'. I think it stands as it is though, regards M

Nice tune!
I had listened to this yesterday and thought I'd clicked that little "Favorites" button as I was downloading this. Anyway, I had to stop back to let you know I really dig this track! I don't have a whole lot of free time, but I will see if I can throw some drums to this. (Although, you probably have someone doing that by now, I'd guess) Thanks for sharing this cool tune!
SmokeyVW said 3927 days ago (March 10th, 2008)
r u David Byrne in disguise?
i could hear this becoming a Talking Heads tune. your lyrics and delivery are definitely going that way...

now add that characteristic bass, and a little synth spice, and something for drums... and you got it!

thanks!

sounds like you have allot of influence from the talking heads, like allot of the comments you've allready got. i think it sounds cool like this without other instruments. it would sound cool with a drum beat maybe at the end and having an instrumental part added to it. i dunno

Excellent.

I simply love your singing and I agree with allanah's comments
and I too love the end verse best with the FX but it was all good.
I bet you felt better afterwards, Not sure I like the look of the knife behind your back though:) I have been stabbed in the back so many timesnot litterally
suppose it doesn't really matter anymore either. Thank you soo much for sharing.
Peace Dee.

I can relate.
Most of us don't get what we want and it is so hard to want what we have. I hope you found a drummer. Some great guitar here. Love the last bit. Thanks.
