Lyrics
you didn't think my own two feet
were strong enough to hold me
well look at me i'm walking on them
right out your door

you didn't think that my own heart
would be deep enough to float me
well look at me i'm being held up supported
and i'm traveling back to shore

you know me so well
and i'll be alright
i've got something raging in me
this fight

you didn't think i'd have the nerve
to turn around and thank you
well look at me i'm being grateful supportive
and still i'm marching off to war

oh you know me so well
and i'll be alright
'cause i've got something raging inside of me
this fight

Musical/Lyrical Dichotomy
You know how much I admire your talents, Stacey... but

I must admit that because of the title, I expected a stronger, punchier, up-tempo song, rather than a gentle ballad... and the lyrics, with their *rage* and *fight* suggest the same.

That can be a communicative problem... unless there's deliberate irony involved and that irony is clear to the listener. I don't see --- or hear --- that in this song.

It's a pleasant tune, with a nice melody, but I don't believe it fits the lyric. I would separate the two and reboot, hopefully yielding TWO better songs. ;)

Being the sort of person...
...who gets quieter as I get madder and more determined, I experience the quiet beauty of the song as fitting, and well suited to how life is...

I think this is very well written, both in terms of melody and in terms of lyric. I'd love to hear it worked up just a little bit, and I really do mean just a little bit... maybe a sort of Jim Rooney production, or the sort of thing that Cheryl Wheeler does well... I think you harmonize with and double your own voice very, very well...

At the demo level, I think the guitar sound is pretty. At the CD level, I think a thicker, less chorused, perhaps doubled guitar would take it up a level. I'd love a bit of woody bass in there, too...

But as I feel like I keep saying, none of it's worth anything if it's starting from a weak song, and you write very strong songs, Stacey...

Very well
Written and sung... I always like songs that offers strength during the struggle (empowerment)I would like it to be longer just personal preference but you have definitely got your point across with just the 2:19 ;)
Thanks for sharing.

Hi Stacey
The big problem I have with your songs is that I'm always listening to your fantastic harmony singing and sometimes miss the rest of the music. I didn't even notice the percussion on this until the 3rd listen. Your songs are brilliantly written and your singing is out of this world. I guess you really like all the chorous effects on your guitar but I think a nice natural organic guitar sound captured with a microphone would really give your songs a truely magical quaility. Having said that I'll still be listening regardless of what you do to your guitar sound.
Thanks

Good song.
Great performance, I thought there were shades of Alanis Morisette in the writing and slightly in the delivery but in the main vibe it was you and it was fab. American Idol hey what do they know...which gives me an opportunity to offer you a listen to my wee tune American Idol. I think it's got possibilities and if you fancy a crack at the vocal yourself just let me know. Aw the best Stacey.

Ooooh
Love those harmonies! Another great song with those incredible vocals. And such a talented musician as well. This is gorgeous. I'm so glad I found your music. There's nothing I like more than a talented vocalist.
