This is a song that I wrote recently. I recorded it with my growing band, but it revolves around vocals and the acoustic guitar..though the bass line is really cool. We used a volume pedal to get that effect. I wanted to create a Steven King-esque tension between the characters. I'll include the lyrics below. I will also provide a soundcloud and soundclick link so that people can go to whichever they wish. Some people don't like soundcloud, but I can upload the WAV version there. Thanks for listening and helping me grow with constructive feedback.
I am a whisper
I'm the cold on your neck
I'm a soul picture
Burnt to the world and left
I will not hurt you
I simply cannot leave the nest
except I'll remind you that you too will one day face death
I am harmless. You have nothing to fear.
I am so harmless staring out from the mirror
keep taking half breaths. Reach out and touch my hand.
You should have left when you still had the chance.
Let us write a note
and take responsibility
let us tie the rope
and leave this world hanging.
