This is the first song I ever wrote. And it's almost ten years old! For it's anniversary I decided to refine it a little and also record it. I've kept mostly true to the structure and sound of the original, but with a few slight changes. This version is only one acoustic guitar and one vocal track. Let me know what you think as I will be refining it as I go. Thanks!

Through your eyes in that bright shiny place.
Your sweet surrender, how bitter the taste!
The way your heart can silence my pain
and know that we will never be the same.

No books can read, no stories can tell
about the feelings that have never been felt!
I'd love to tell you how I have been well,
but since you changed we'll never be the same.

Noone cared about me.
No one cared.
I don't wanna go back to the way it was!
I sit in my castle waiting for you
to tell you all that I have been through.
Forgot you don't care for me anymore!
Forgot that we are all through.

By myself all day and all night.
I'm not quite sure if I'll be alright!
You don't foresee, and I don't realize
that we'll never, ever be the same.

Maybe I'll leave and I won't come back.
Maybe I don't know how to react!
I've seen the truth in the way that you act.
And now I know we'll never be the same.

Yeah I wrote it to be played with a grunge band. It worked out nicely both ways. I'm working on the rest of it, although it may take me some time with my current schedule!

California Song
Nice picking in the intro, Ryan. This has an acoustic, Oasis vibe and you do a fine job of it. Good song. Congratulations on the quality of your first song. Take care, Peter.

You're too kind!
Thank you do much! I was listening to a lot of oasis back then so it's no surprise to me that you can hear it in the song.

I started writing music the day I picked up my first guitar. I couldn't play any "real" songs, so I just messed around until I found something I thought was cool. Eventually, I learned songs from my favorite bands, but I never lost the desire to wr... [see more]
