Description
This song i wrote in about 2 min of being introspective. It has a lot of meaning to me... i know my singing aint the best, but picture my covered on my own blood and tears, as i wrote this.

Lyrics
The darkest side
Has come to life
Isnt me
Shares misery
Sets me free
Until i see
I can escape myself this time

I hear your voice
Echoes in my mind
Says make a choice
I think its time that you must die

Im attending to my own funeral
A part of me just died inside tonight
Im attending to my own funeral
Dressed in black and now i finally feel so alive

Awee this is very poignant and I understand the lyrics only too well. I think
I am speechless. Sounds awsome.

Peace Dee.

Vocal and guitar ..
.. sound OK to me. I hear some problems with the recording/fx you've used though. Is that a phaser on the guitar? I'd much rather hear a straight acoustic sound. You have the vocals and guitar panned left, which leaves a vacant lot on the LH side of the sound stage. A faint echo (or maybe a pitch correction artefact) is all I hear there.

Can I suggest that you consider re-recording this without any fx and that you think a little more about panning. I've found that doubling the vocal and guitar tracks can fill out the sound in a recording. In this case I'd probably want to repeat the guitar track in the LH channel and delay it a very small amount. At the same time I'd move the vocal track closer to the centre of the sound stage.

It's a good song though, and could sound much better with a little twiddling of knobs.
Cheers,
Neil

I couldnt agree more...
Thanks for the feedback, i'm re-recording the song all together... i didnt really put a lot of effort into the recording.. i simply wanted to get the song out there....everything was recorded one take, with my built in mic on my laptop..... no mixing was done, anyhoo, thx again......Will

Honesty only goes so far...
Yes, I guess this comes straight from the heart.

But the arrangement feels unfinished. Just because this is spontaneous doesn't mean you can't afterwards pay some attention to the production. For instance that abrupt ending. Or the fact that everything is in one channel.

pretty
your voice is fine carries the emotion. this is pretty. i think it would sound better for the melody and be easier for you to sing on the last line if you sing "dress in black and i finally feel alive" the word so seems to make you have to rush that word in there. you can definitely continue with this. i like it a raw emotional accoustic song the kind i like to write. the lyrics are so pretty and emotional impacting.
