    Between the lines

    Surely, along with double negatives, incorrect verb tense, and irony

    I don't feel like these lyrics are as deep or complicated as the other..... I thought it was clearly about a work affair (NOT TRUE ABOUT ME IN ANY WAY!!)

    I really like the subtle ryhme you may or may not have intended here in the third and fourth lines of each stanza. SMALL-INVISIBOL STORM - ON If possible, it would be really neat to match that rhyme scheme in the third verse. It may not work with the melody you are using, but you may want to try it at least.

    Between the lines

    This is a song in which I have recorded a demo but will be revisiting soon to change up and finish. I won't say the meaning until I read a few interpretations. We put our heads on sideways so we can read between the lines digging holes in the hallways taking pictures of the blind We never found no reason to believe in what we find I'll think about it on the weekend but I got monday on my mind I'll oblige to the snakes in your eyes Feening for the love that we made We'll pretend to put faith in the wind blowing all our troubles away Freelancer with a devil dancer In the middle of the road We burn until the ashes learn What we already know We wound our heads on clockwise For a Monday afternoon You know i never meant to love you no i never even tried to I'll oblige to the snakes in your eyes Feening for the love that we made We'll pretend to put faith in the wind blowing all our troubles away

    Heartache on a railroad

    "Tell me your liar" First and foremost, I chose this line because of the way it sounds. I then justified that it could mean: "Who or What part of you continues you to convince you that what you feel isn't real" "Heartache on a railroad" Again, I liked the way it sounded, especially the way it is sung. I justified it with the notion that leaving something on a railroad will eventually be crashed into. She's turning and walking away from what we had, but then she runs in anticipation of the pain that will be felt I know that my ambiguous nature in writing is confusing and borderline impossible to understand fully, and I am considering everything mentioned here. This is by no means the final version, and I def. appreciate the feedback from all. One thing that really doesn't sit well with me is when lyrics aren't vague enough. I cringe sometimes when I hear pop songs that are so straightforward with meanings. Artists I enjoy and are inspired by are ones who produce songs that may take a couple of listens to "get". Finding a balance between those two realms is the difficult part, along with the diction/ flow of consonants and sounds.

    Now this is why I'm here!

    I understand totally. Makes alot sense and I've never thought of things this way when writing. After the bridge, I intend to let the next section explode instrumentally and vocally. Therefore, your logic would suggest those lines to be clear and concise rather ambiguous as the verse. The thing is, it will be returning to the same key as the verse, so it may need to mirror those lines a bit in order to create an element of transitioning between the two characters. However, I do not think I will go that route. Now that I sit and soak it all in, I will need to rework this after I've expanded on the overall sound and rhythm of the music itself, while sticking to a more singular theme.

    All For You

    Initial listen Love the strings with the vox and how they transcend into that root key on the ring synced with the snare. Love the environment of the sound, and really dig the unconventional structure. Sounds like a rollercoaster or glass subway through space.... great imagery here. Suggestions: Keep the instrument loop, makes it hypnotic. Play around with bass line. I hear opportunity for a catchy bass roll towards the end of every 4th bar. (Actually since its 3/4, I guess it would be every third bar, or maybe every third and then every other towards end of song) Great stuff really. I really dig it. Listening to others on your sound cloud right now.

    Heartache on a railroad

    Snabbu, Thank you very much for the insight and well thought out comments. I appreciate you trying to interpret and analyze my lyrics. I understand everything you are saying, and I will def. take it all into consideration (especially the contrast between the verse and chorus /ambiguous and then more straightforward ideas. Before we decide to go this direction, let me just explain what the lyrics mean to me. Perhaps its too far fetched, but out of curiosity….Also, keep in mind that I am male and I believe the song is about a girl I once knew. There is a fire and there is a man in the doorway The doorway is gone ** There was someone here to save you, but you waited too long to take the leap forward with him. Tell me your liar And I'll be the one you remember Wherever you go Why do we both continue to turn ourselves the other direction, even though we feel so right together. There is a fire and there is a man in the doorway He won't let me go The man is the memories I have of myself during that time. No matter how hard I try, I can’t stop thinking of that period of my life. Tell me your liar and I'll be the one in your shadow Wherever you go **I changed this up for some reason, I think what I may be getting at is that I respect this person, and I only want to do what is right, regardless of whether or not we must keep our distance BRIDGE/KEY CHANGE** Why does it seem We know who we are when we dream and what does it take to be there~ Referencing a dream, and whether or not it can come true Who do you blame when half of the mirrors are sane and how does it feel to be real to be real~ Half of the mirrors are sane. Therefore, half of the mirrors are insane. Sometimes we think we are crazy for what we think say and do, but other times, our emotions feel just and right. *Chorus Where do you go? you tell me your heartache's on a railroad and now I know you run Yes you better go now they'll put your heartache on the railroad and now they know you'll run I believe what I am getting at here is an idea of what this may be like from her point of view. She knows we can’t be together, so its gonna hurt eventually. We burn the bridge, and turn an run back to our lives, knowing the heartache will take its toll and hurt. the second half refers to the peers involved in a current relationship (family friends, etc.) and how devastating it would be to burn so many bridges. I know these meanings are deep and rather vague, but I truly strive to write lyrics that are multi-layered and ambiguous to the point of meaning different things to different folks, as long as there is a consistent connection between those meanings.

    Heartache on a railroad

    Song is a piano ballad with orchestral sounds/elements. Even though I labeled BRIDGE and CHORUS, the structure is not traditional and, to be honest, Each section could be considered a chorus. Instrumentally, I have one more section to add in which will need more lyrics. I have the melodies in my head, but I am unsure about the lyrics for this section. The current lyrics are written from my emotions. As far as I know, they provide a narrative of my deep inner feelings towards a certain individual in my life, a person who I can't stop thinking about no matter how hard I try, A person whom I shared an enormous amount of chemistry with. I realize that many of the lyrics are ambiguous, but in my own odd way, they make perfect sense when they are delivered from my soul. I appreciate any feedback and hope that the meanings get across to some of you! Thanks in advance! (I'll be recording demo really soon) There is a fire and there is a man in the doorway The doorway is gone Tell me your liar And I'll be the one you remember Wherever you go There is a fire and there is a man in the doorway He won't let me go Tell me your liar and I'll be the one in your shadow Wherever you go BRIDGE/KEY CHANGE** Why does it seem We know who we are when we dream and what does it take to be there~ Who do you blame when half of the mirrors are sane and how does it feel to be real to be real~ *Chorus Where do you go? you tell me your heartache's on a railroad and now I know you run Yes you better go now they'll put your heartache on the railroad and now they know you'll run

    surely you're the one

    these are lyrics for the first half of a track ive been demoing. song doesnt really have a chorus. it basically transitions into three seperate sections without cycling back. anyways, feedback would be much appreciated. I heard a whisper on your tongue I felt the devil while your heads a storm Tell me what you wanna know Sail me where your fever grows Your promises are simple We’re tangling them on the way So tell me where you want to start I show you where it falls apart Surely you’re the one Going nowhere Don’t want to be your crosshair I just want to say Hey If you dont want to I dont want to tell you Coz you’ve got no one to follow And your always on the edge Surely you’re the one

    novacane

    all riffs are original. the two verse leads, chorus lead, break, and outro leads were recorded with midi keyboard and distortion. background guitars are actual guitar by a friend of mine recorded through mic. (never played guitar hero. in fact, i cant play guitar. i basically play something in my head and map it out on keyboard and/or sequencer)
  13. BEAUTIFUL dont worry about the structure of the song... as is is perfect. this is music/ art, and its own meaning and environment as a whole is brilliant. love the strings, lyrics, everything really. impressive second listen, love the finger picking refrains in intro clever vocal melody, one that grows. love "i dont know what to do i dont know what to say" jump, second string around 2 minutes is great, id maybe suggest a variation on its 3 bar (of 4 bars) Love the refrain coming back again at the end. really really great stuff here and im interested in hearing your album
  14. lyrics: i bleed the colors that you'll dream of from your throne and i i want to show you why youre wrong i hear you bumble when your crumbling on the phone i heard you whisper like a canon ball here we are girl i've got your novacane girl i hope you feel the same as i do tonight* song is in demo format. i normally write, mix and record solo. a friend of mine added some rythm guitars in support. the song still needs some tweaks and perhaps another section, just wanting some insight and thoughts/opinions. thanks in advance!

    Losing Gravity

    google how to eq and compress vox and youll find all sorts of video tutorials. sometimes its also a matter of eqing the other instruments as well. its one of the more enjoyable parts of mixing albeit a bit frustrating at times. get some good head phones and take your time. i reccomend presonus studio one's plugins or flstudio's.
