It Should Have Been Better

Get Flash to see this player.

A shit first song really. Mix is all out and unfinished.

Finding it hard to write words for this song. I decided to write about the song itself and the frustration of not being able to come up with catchy. well thoughtout lyrics. It's about the song knowing it can't get better, but I try nonetheless to make it better.

It's a plan that begins with me.
Of minors and majors with progressions of three.
It's the one I need to become better.
It's a gamble of love and hate.
A broken down record that I could create.
And I just hope that you can see, you're the only one for me.

But I'm the empty money loving man.
I'm the one who falls as you stand.
I'm the one who thinks it has to get better.
I'm the one who loses faith.
Looks at you then hesitates.
But I just hope that you can see, you're the only one for me.

You're the word upon this page.
You're the silence within my rage.
You're the one who knows it can't get better.
You're the quiet of my sleepness night.
As minutes of sound that make it alright.
And now I know that you can see, you're the only one for me.

Good song
like how the changes occur in this. Good lyrics, too. Only
criticism I really have is that the mix sounds pretty
muddy. This would no doubt benefit from some re-
mixing. All the components are here for a really fine song.
Thanks for posting it.

Good song
thanks for the comments. we thought the song did need a litte bit extra in terms of finish and mix. the bass we think was probably too high and smothered the song. thanks for listening

Often have the likely failed,
While the unlikely prospered.

As with aclarke, I think this is a pretty decent song... has some nice
changes, well performed and sung and is only really being let down by
some of the production elements.

I don't think the bass is the problem... I think it could actually be a
little louder if you wanted... instead some of your other levels are a
little out. The drums are too loud and sit infront of your guitar playing
and almost infront of your vocals. Theres quite a few times where your
recording of the guitar playing clips and distorts where it doesn't
sound as if it should. Aside from your heavily FXed guitar clip
everything is very much centered and narrow meaning the parts don't
have their own space to play in and be heard. Incidently... the song
could benifit from being a little shorter... make it more radio friendly or

But yeah, as aclarke said, everything here is good for a really fine song.

An 80's baby, influenced by the 90's. But love the magic that came from the 60's and 70's. Trying to make something out of this enjoyment music brings to me. Music should be listened to, not merely heard. ... [see more]
