  1. Breakup Ballad lyrics

    Hi! Thank you so much for your feedback. It is incredibly useful. Also the song is about a once-deep relationship that the persona ended because while the partner was continuously showing her affection, she couldn't return his devotion and felt torn apart inside by the guilt. I agree with a lot you said and hopefully it will improve with new changes!
  2. I Don’t Want a Goodbye Kiss

    I love the direct tone of this song. Perhaps insert another verse after the first time the chorus appears to expand on the story rather than just singing the chorus over and over through to the end. Really good work and would love to hear the song once it's completed please post
  3. Breakup Ballad lyrics

    Hi everyone, I already wrote the melody for this which can be found in the song forum but I am now trying to shave off some of the lyrics to shorten the duration for a deeper emotional impact. Please see if you can help me pick out what to cut Verse 1 Yesterday, I met you in the garden Trailing behind me We stood upon the gravel in the morning Waiting for something Pre-chorus Anything to happen Was it you, was it me? How did this happen How did rain fall on your cheek and shame on mine? When I looked into your eyes I died Verse 2 Yesterday, you told me that you loved me You left me speechless And I, being the fool in all the madness Heard three words, but couldn’t speak them Pre-chorus Everything will happen Wasn’t you, wasn’t me, yet it has happened Rain will fall on your cheek and shame on mine. For a long time Chorus You loved me but I let you go Crushed you deep inside your soul Took you in and threw you out The fire was quietly burning out Loved you but I didn’t know The flame was slowly growing cold My mind was slowly getting old Drew our love to a close, so damaged This is the Breakup Ballad Verse 3 Love was like a letter that you gave me Poured your soul into these phrases But I am good at anything but lying Made promises but couldn’t keep them You held me tight in your arms Yet my heart felt oh, so far Your love’s tearing me apart Into shards Bridge Oh, oh oh oh oh [x4] Pre-chorus Anything can happen Wasn’t you wasn’t me, yet this has happened How did rain fall on your cheek and shame on mine? Chorus You loved me but I let you go Crushed you deep inside your soul Took you in and threw you out The fire was quietly burning out Loved you but I didn’t know The flame was slowly growing cold My mind was slowly getting old Drew our love to a close And I’m acting fine hope you won’t know Wear a smile just for show I see you’re at an all time low But please my darling don’t lose hope Someday she will come along A girl who might have heard this song before And will not sing to you This melody ‘bout what went wrong with us We have both been damaged This is our Breakup Ballad Verse 4/ ending Yesterday, I left you in the garden My head and my heart were aching Nobody told me it would hurt Doing the heartbreaking

    Okay, thank you so much for listening!

    Thank you for the advice!!
  6. Whatever I need to find

    This was incredibly nice to listen too and I could certainly imagine hearing it on the radio. Maybe go over your lyrics again and try to increase the smoothness of the words. Great job!
  7. Inner Child

    okay first of all, where is the soundcloud link???? And your lyrics are very abstract dance around (or rather, on top of) a story line. Are you going for an implicit style because I couldn't really make out what was going on, or what the narrative lyrics were trying to express. Overally this a cool concept, but I must be blind because I can't find the link to the actual song
  8. Breakup Ballad

    Here is something I wrote, with just piano and my voice. I don't have any pro recording equipment and I'm terrible at singing while playing but please leave some thoughts on whether or not it makes you feel feelings or if the song is on the right track https://soundcloud.com/zoe-thranduilion/breakup-ballad-original-song Verse 1 Yesterday, I met you in the garden Trailing behind me We stood upon the gravel in the morning Waiting for something Pre-chorus Anything to happen Was it you, was it me?

  9. Your voice is beautiful I am in love. Finally, a song up with the times on this website!! Extremely heartfelt melody and lyrics, and I am also a young singer/songwriter so this is very relatable and certainly not dated. You would have a huge audience!! Keep up the good work
  10. Come Back to Me

    Thank you for your honest opinion. Although I agree that my original lyrics were more unique, I am quite happy with where the song has ended up in terms of how well the words flow with the music. I also felt that earlier it was leaning too much towards a traditional 'lament' (with the repeating Gaelic phrase), while I still wanted the 'pop'/more mainstream quality of the song to emerge amidst the features of traditional Celtic music. Nevertheless, I am grateful for everyone's opinion regarding this lyric because I honestly thought no one would be interested enough to give feedback I really like your work, Paul! So getting feedback from someone with more experience is amazing
  11. Everybody on this website is so talented and honest with their critique, this is such a useful platform for musicians :) 

  12. Despacito Cover - What do you think???

    OMG I checked out your cover of 'Evermore' and I got chills, classical singing is my guilty pleasure and your voice is really great. About 'Despacito', just in MY PERSONAL OPINION it sounded too out-of-place for this genre of vocals but it was fantastic of you to come up with this! Creativity is one of the most important parts of music and it was refreshing to hear your voice on this website
  13. Castles In The Air (Demo)

    Sounds fantastic! I got kind of a Beatles vibe listening to this, it just makes me so happy and I think of sunshine and rainbows. Romantic too. You could improve the recording if you have the equipment, but personally I don't care about that too much because I don't own any fancy recording equipment Personally, it's the music and feel of a song that counts. Great job!
  14. Holy moly, this is amazing!! Please post lyrics, the flow is on point and the sung part in 'Inside This Place' is sensual Eargasms all round, well done
  15. Stringin' Her Along

    Woah I love this, certainly could groove to it. Honestly not much to critique, sounds very professional and lyrics flow well.
