  1. Hey guys! I made a song called Racing The Lions. The metaphor of ‘the lions’ are meant to be impossible things you want to become. They are strong, beautiful, and fast; a competitor you can’t keep up with. It's about young people, who are unhappy with themselves, striving to become something unachievable by nature. I've put the song here: https://www.triplejunearthed.com/artist/tuva-finser%C3%A5s I've gotten some reviews, but they are not saying much specific things, some specific feedback would be much appriciated so I can get better. Thank you :)
  2. Hello Songwriters! This song is about a break up with a friend. We’ve probably all been there. But I feel that this song dissects the various emotions, not just anger, or sadness…it looks at the recovery phase as well. The getting better. It’s called “Better Now”. I use Garage band to make my backing tracks, and the lyrics are below. I’m getting a condenser mic soon, so please excuse the possibly annoying sound quality if you’re used to more high level videos. I’d appreciate feedback regarding flow, overall vibe, what genre you think this is, tempo, other instruments you think may possibly go well, I’m still finding my voice as an indie artist after 5 years of cover band life… Better Now Intro Better, yea I’m feeling better now that you’re gone, you’re gone. Better, yea I’m feeling better now that you’re gone, you’re gone. Verse 1 Let go, of the fake show, that we put on, No more, it’s a closed door, I’m moving on Done deal, it’s how I feel, I must stay strong, so long! Chorus Heart ache, heart ache, you brought nothing but All take, all take, I’d give it all up Heat ache, heart ache, that’s all that you brought Intro Better, yea I’m feeling better now that you’re gone, you’re gone. Better, yea I’m feeling better now that you’re gone, you’re gone. Verse 2 Secrets, like a fetus, grow into lies, Weakness, helped me welcome you into my life Sleepless, over drama, I’m cutting ties, bye bye! Chorus
  3. WARNING: This song contains bad language and sexual themes. So I was listening to the rain and I decided to write a song and upload it before my soundcloud expires lol, I'm not gonna pay for the upgrade I know this kind of music might not be for everyone but I hope you'll enjoy and give feedback! Also I might have sung the wrong words in a few places Lyrics: Your Kinda Lady V1: Imma step up my game now You're driving me home to meet your family Right on our way now Boy, this ain't the time to make me your enemy Pre-chorus: Baby, tell me what I gotta do To make you understand that I'll be good, for you Baby, tell me what I gotta say To make you understand that I won't misbehave I don't really care if those motherfuckers stare at me The light is glowing red so babe, you better listen carefully Chorus: I'm the type of girl who'll treat your mama right I won't get in no fights, coz I'm just that kinda lady Then late at night I'm gon' get crazy freaky on you Under your papa's roof, coz I'm just that fucking shady V2: We're right at the door now Your brother lets us in and we get straight to eating Are you gonna give me a tour now? Pass by the bedroom, but we ain't gon' be sleeping (all night) Pre-chorus: Baby, tell me what I gotta do To make you understand that I'll be good, for you Baby, tell me what I gotta say To make you understand that I won't misbehave Chorus: I'm the type of girl who'll treat your mama right I won't get in no fights, coz I'm just that kinda lady Then late at night I'm gon' get crazy freaky on you Under your papa's roof, coz I'm just that fucking shady I don't really care about your sense of propriety No matter who's around, babe, you better get inside of me Chorus [x2]: I'm the type of girl who'll treat your mama right I won't get in no fights, coz I'm just that kinda lady Then late at night I'm gon' get crazy freaky on you Under your papa's roof, coz I'm just that fucking shady I just wanna be your baby Coz I'm just Your Kinda Lady
  4. Hey all!New song I've been working on called "The Way You Make Me Feel". I might call it something else, but that's the title for now. Would love some feedback on the production, lyrics and I guess overall feel. It's very Pop (as usual) so beware lol. Any and all thoughts are welcomed!Thanks! Micky Lyrics:It was the one night that we got to talkingI felt a connectionDefinitely not there beforeIt was your eyes on meIt was my eyes on theeIt was like suddenlyI felt this feelingYou hit me like an uptown bus in New York CityLike the first time I had 10 shots of whiskeyJust like the time I jumped out of an airplane into the skyAnd I fell like a piano coming down from the 40th storyRome when the Barbarians came for the gloryThe first time i heard Coldplay "Fix You" and I criedAnd I don’t wanna lose this feelingCuz I like the way you areThe way you areI don't wanna lose this feelingCuz I like the way we areThe way we areThe way you make me feel(Chorus)I like the way you make me feelI like it, I like it, I like itI like the way you make me feelCould it be destiny Could it be you and meYou’ve never given me a reason to be nervous around youIt could be the words you spokeIt could be this Jack and CokeIt doesn’t matter cuz i’m in itI’m in it with youAnd I don't wanna lose this feelingCuz I like the way you areThe way we areThe way you make me feel(Chorus)You give me butterflies I've never feltAll the stars in the sky They start falling around usI never thought it was possible I could be yoursAnd you could be mine(that's the way you make me feel)Bridge:You hit me like a calm before the stormHit me like the light at dawnAnd I fell like the rain dropping out of the clouds I fell for every word coming out of your mouthI fell like the rainI fell like the rainI fell like the rainI fell like the rainAnd I don't wanna lose this feelingCuz I like the way we areThe way we areThe way you make me feel(Chorus)And that's the way you make me feelYou give me butterflies I've never feltAll the stars in the sky They start falling around usI never thought it was possible I could be yoursAnd you could be mine(That's the way you make me feel)That's the way you make me feelThat's the way you make me feel
  5. Hey all, Haven't put a new song on here in a while. But been working on this and would love some feedback. Only one request...if you listen, pretty please listen from beginning to the end and read the lyrics. If you have the time. This song is a build up Thanks so much! Micky Lyrics I feel low tonight Feeling out of control tonight My body's moving slow tonight But my mind's at the speed of light I hope that you got home alright You didn't check in, but that's alright It's not like you were ever mine I'm just feeling a little bit low So I'm gonna go get lost in the streets Thinking 'bout you, if you're thinking 'bout me While I walk on the beach Damn, you would like that sunset... View from the hills Tops of the trees Remember when we drove up here that night? I wish me and you could take this city... So I'm gonna go get lost tonight Drinking too much 'til I feel it Take one ___ tonight Losing my head to the feeling Get you out of my mind God, I wish that we could take this city... I wish you and me could take this city I feel low tonight I've got no self control tonight My body's floating up so high But my mind's with you I hope that you got home alright You didn't check in at all tonight It's not like you were ever mine But I hope you got home I know you were never mine You made it pretty clear tonight And that's alright yea I'll be fine I hope you got home... I'm gonna go get lost in the streets Thinking 'bout you, if you're thinking 'bout me While I walk on the beach Damn, you would like that sunset... View from the hills Tops of the trees Remember when we drove up here that night? I wish you and me could take this city. So I'm gonna go get lost tonight Drinking too much 'til I feel it Take one ___ tonight Losing my head to the feeling Get you out of my mind I wish you and me could take this city God, I wish that we could take this city... So, I'm gonna go get lost in the streets Thinking 'bout you, if you're thinking 'bout me While I walk on the beach Damn, you would like that sunset... View from the hills Tops of the trees Remember when we drove up here that night? I wish you and me could take this city.

  6. This is the words and music version a song I posted in the lyric section. Any comments appreciated. Cheers Gary She’s only watching the clock © Gary Yeomans 2018 You ask her out to dance You know there is no chance, ‘cause She’s only watching the clock She’s only watching the clock Still you feel you have to try Though you know she’l make you cry again She stopped your love at a road block She stopped your love at a road block You feel you want to die It’s not cool for men to cry in your world Now you can’t help yourself It is her and no one else, yet She’s only watching the clock She’s only watching the clock As the time passes you by Very soon she’l make you cry again She’s got your heart in a headlock She’s got your heart in a headlock You feel like you can’t breath You know you aught to leave and be alone You’re lonely So very lonely Down, and mentally empty too If you were only her one and only how good would life be for you Instead of this endlessness, of emptiness You know she will never ever feel the way you do So you send a valentine Though you know you’re wasting your time ‘cause She's only watching the clock She's only watching the clock You know you can’t help yourself It is her and nobody else you need She’s trapped your heart with a deadlock She’s trapped your heart with a deadlock You can’t help yourself It’s here and nowhere else you gotta be She stopped your love at a road block She stopped your love at a road block

    Vinegar

    Vinegar [V1] It took a bit of time but he swept her up I didn't see the sense myself Thought it wouldn't last but they kept it up and gossip moved along to something else [V2] But all this time now you've so been burning up when you imagine them side-by-side Dagger-eyed whenever she's turning up always waiting ready for a fight You're like a rig far out at sea When the well blows out into the deep Washing up filth for months [Pre-chorus] Why doesn't he see you? Why doesn't he need you? Why doesn't he want you? Why does he want her? Why does he want her instead? [Chorus] I'm not saying that it's easy Cause I know that's only words I'm not saying that it's painless Cause I know how much it hurts I'm not asking you to like it Or to try to be glad for her But If the champagne ain't for you Don't fill your glass with vinegar [v3] Now you're finding that you're pushed away A vague acquaintance at the most Your random outbursts can't be brushed away When they're aimed at somebody so close You're the heavy breathing on the line Clutching at his voice one more time Each moment you spend with him [Pre-chorus] Why doesn't he see you? Why doesn't he need you? Why doesn't he want you? Why does he want her? Why does he want her instead? [Chorus] I'm not saying that it's easy Cause I know that's only words I'm not saying that it's painless Cause I know how much it hurts I'm not asking you to like it Or to try to be glad for her But If the champagne ain't for you Don't fill your glass with vinegar In this I tried to apply the idea of having each verse with a distinct concept, and a chorus that is the same each time but is given a different meaning by the chorus that it's juxtaposed with (thanks Dr Pattinson). I also tried to make the form of the lines in which the feelings of the jealous friend are discussed match the emotions (though constricted by the regularity of the first four lines of each verse to match the form of the first verse). I struggled to find metaphors/images for jealousy that aren't threadbare, but I hope the amount of imagery is more balanced than in my previous song. If you read this far, thanks and have a good day!
  8. So I entered this song into the May lyric contest because I was in the process of writing it and wanted to see how people reacted to it without the melody. I wrote this song after seeing the movie Call Me By Your Name (2017) and was extremely moved and affected by this beautiful film. I hoped to invoke the impression of a sensual Italian summer in this song, like in the movie. It's a low quality production like everything I produce but hopefully the song itself isn't low quality, haha! 😁 Lyrics: Call Me By Your Name Verse 1: Calm, quiet Walking through the water with you in my Arms, tight and Careful not to let you float away Pre-chorus: Your golden hair skims the surface The sunlight catches your eyes Your fingers wrapped round my wrist And I feel your skin against mine Chorus: You looked at me today And I knew that we were one You took my breath away Together we'll stay in the light of the sun Verse 2: Blood at the back of my tongue Words, biting hard, and threatening to tear us apart But our hearts are hungry and hard If we stay where we are, love, would you still float away? Pre-chorus: Your fingernails dig into my back And I whisper your name Face in your hair, I breathe the scent Every touch is never the same Bridge: Summer holds back the swell of time Over seasons' prime, she reigns But now as the flowers die, Will we ever find a way? Kiss me hard, love me violent, while The fleeting fire fades Bittersweet, the nectar dries As you call me by your name Chorus: You looked at me today And I knew that we were one Disarm me with your pain Together we'll stay in the light of the sun Ending: Bittersweet, the nectar dries As you call me by your name Take me back to that summertime And I'll call you by mine

IT HURTS ©2014 - 2018 IRWIN ABRIGO (VERSE 1) Plan to live, my whole life through With me and you, you said you’d wanted that too When we met, I had wanted A love to be-be devoted Snow is falling, I'm at home It is cold, I'm all alone Against my window, there’s a storm And it’s coming, on strong... (CHORUS) Outside, I can hear the sound Of the wind, blowing Wishing you were here Lying in my bed, I’m pretending Just to think, you’re not here... It hurts! (VERSE 2) Never ask you, for too much Only your touch, how can you make me feel sad? I need your, hugs and kisses You know you’re all that I had? I dim the lights, through the night And this is, wishful thinking Like the wind that blows, through my door I hope, you’ll come walking.... (CHORUS) Outside, I can hear the sound Of the wind, blowing Wishing you, were here Lying-in my bed, I’m pretending Just to think, you’re not here.... It hurts (BRIDGE) Just to think, that you’d leave Is what I can’t believe... You left me with a broken heart... You left me with a broken heart... You left me with a BROKEN HEART...

  10. Hey guys, here's a song I wrote and scored a while ago using musescore. I don't have any fancy equipment but hope you like it! Critique is appreciated! Princess and the Pauper V1 Looking through her window, watching as the days go by Sunlight dies before her eyes Golden thread and satin, diadem and Latin lies Laced into her inner thighs Pre-chorus Quick, he is coming, and my heart is drumming His Highness is drawing near Climb in through the window; out in the world, I go It's your turn to stay in here Chorus I'm ready for the changeover Here, take my crown Love him good, just as I should And I will wear your frown I'm ready for a taste of the outside, to be free From this cursed dynasty where he will never touch me Where he will never touch me Instrumental V2 Digging her fingernails into the morning dirt Ankle deep in sunken earth Crumbling complexion and hollow reflection dies Unless her body's loved tonight Pre-chorus Quick, he is falling, my heart is a-warning His Highness is coming now Climb in through the window; out in the world, I go It's my turn to break my vow Chorus I'm ready for the changeover Here, take my crown Love him good, just as I should And I will wear your frown I'm ready for a taste of the outside, to be free From this cursed dynasty where he will never touch me Bridge Identical faces We exchange our places Intentional twist of fate You want love and beauty, I want my purity See the royal mess we've made I, the princess; you, the pauper We play the game Chorus [x2] I'm ready for the changeover Here, take my crown Love him good, just as I should And I will wear your frown I'm ready for a taste of the outside, to be free From this cursed dynasty where he will never touch me

    Sticks

    Sticks (v2 - 27th May) [Verse] It's an hour til the next bus to nowhere Wandring round this couch-surfing city That's wearing the past like yesterday's stubble Seems like everything but the pound shops are finished I've been scanning all the adverts from elsewhere Somewhere where someone requires me Like migrating birds fly south for the winter I'm fluttering off to get what I need [Pre-chorus] All my friends stayed home and married each other Look at their lives now [Chorus] In the sticks everything stays the same as it ever was Life goes on just as it always did In the sticks everybody knows your name, nothing ever changes Life goes on just as it always did [Verse] Now I'm submerged in the murmur of movement Nothing ever stops for a moment Staying in till late back at the office Doing everything to get that promotion It's like here is the headquarters of everyhing Here is where the decisions are made It whispers here is the place where dreams become concrete And nothing comes to those who just wait [Pre-chorus] All my friends stayed home and married each other Look at their lives now [Chorus] In the sticks everything stays the same as it ever was Life goes on just as it always did In the sticks everybody knows your name, nothing ever changes Life goes on just as it always did [Bridge] Then one day I went home for a bitrhday Went home on an ancient train With a few days clothes inside my suitcase Eager to see my family again [Verse] Now I'm lying back against the old lounger Lazing in the old sunny weather The days just slip past when everyhing's simple They disappear when the family's together There's something in these drowsy old houses Something circular down these dusty streets Everything's here like it's intended Everyone's here except just me [Pre-chorus] All my friends stayed home and married each other Look at their lives now [Chorus] In the sticks everything stays the same as it ever was Life goes on just as it always did In the sticks everybody knows your name, nothing ever changes Life goes on just as it always did ------ Hi. I'm a newbie songwriter, and this is the first song that I've written that's not too personal to share with the world. I realise that it's not great (ok, it's a fixer-upper), but I'm hoping to learn from you all (so please critique away). I grew up in an area with not a whole lot to do and relatively few jobs available, and then a few years ago I moved to London. This song is about being ambitious and wanting to move somewhere with more opportunities, only to find in a couple of years that when you go back to visit family you find yourself longing for the slower pace of life, being able to buy a house, the neighbours who know you and talk to you, etc. I guess I don't really fit in anywhere - I'm not living the full-on cosmopolitan city life but I can't bear the thought of settling for a third-rate job in my hometown and not having all the cultural and musical opportunities on my doorstep. I don't know if any of this comes through in the song - that's what I was aiming for. I think the second verse is better than the first (I wrote it first). Maybe I should add a section that's like 'OK, I'm in the big city now' before going to the second verse to clarify the storyline? Any other suggestions? Sticks [Verse 1] If there's somethin' left still in this hollow town It's hard to feel a beating pulse The instant coffee flows strong and sweet as methadone That's our only buzz The far off call of the crowd pulls at me From somewhere where the streets still surge The one path to advance, or at least get the chance To get my voice heard [Pre-chorus] All my friends stayed home and married each other Look at their lives now Single-file days slip past without number And gone [Chorus] In the sticks (in the sticks, in the sticks sticks sticks sticks) Same as it ever was Life goes on just as it always did In the sticks (in the sticks, in the sticks sticks sticks sticks) Same as it ever was Everything stays like it always is [Verse 2] Now I'm lying back on the old grass again Now I'm lazing in the old sunshine The days ooze thick and slow, ripened by the mid-May glow Clear as summer wine These sleepy streets still sing a circle song Written for the first green leaf The tune deep, rich and long, marking where we each belong All there except me [Pre-chorus] All my friends stayed home and married each other Look at their lives now Single-file days slip past without number And gone [Chorus] In the sticks (in the sticks, in the sticks sticks sticks sticks) Same as it ever was Life goes on just as it always did In the sticks (in the sticks, in the sticks sticks sticks sticks) Same as it ever was Everything stays like it always is

    Pop Spirituality

    This one will put you in a trance. I produced the music for this video in collaboration with Unicole Unicron. It was featured on MTV in 2015.
  13. Hi everyone Here's something a little different. I wrote this for two voices and got two really talented singers to perform it for me. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/p4h2y3y1gn9598s/AAA0e3RGcgq_vlsJbTeakHHZa?dl=0&preview=The+Wicked+Queen+-+FINAL.mp3 Credits: Music: Neel Modi & Sonja Seiler Lyrics / Orchestration: Neel Modi Knight: Ryan Wilkie Queen: Kira Braun Lyrics: There was a wicked queen She would curse all that she saw We four horsemen galloped in To proclaim the new law We said, “Your highness, we must take you in.” She said, “You’re foolish, weak little men.” She approached us in a dash Then two were dead in a flash. Their fear then took hold For I held a flaming sword “Your doom is at hand,” “It’s too late to cry out ‘Dear lord!’” “The others are coming,” we did warn, “They’re strong and they will destroy you! Your reign is now at its end!” “I curse you all! Your lives are through!”
  14. Hey forum, I've posted this song a couple of times, but have just made a new mix (and shorter version of it) and would love to get some feedback on production and the song in general (music, lyrics, melody, vocal). Thank you! Lyrics: Tossing and turning fever is burning last night I dreamed of you last night I dreamed of you And we were walking down the same road I started running to you trying to get close And then I reached out my hand for you to see but you just kept on running kept on running away from me running away from me You unfold me Chorus: Don't you wanna come in my bed tonight? I don't wanna live the rest of my life without your love without your love Get out of my head and turn off the light Say you're gonna stay with me tonight Give me your love Give me your love I'll never say it Not to your face only when I dream of you Only when I dream of you And we were falling in a black hole And I was struggling to pull you close And then you reached out and took my hand and we Just kept on falling kept on falling eternally falling eternally You unfold me Chorus: Don't you wanna come in my bed tonight? I don't wanna live the rest of my life without your love without your love Get out of my head and turn off the light Say you're gonna stay with me tonight Give me your love Give me your love Don't you wanna come in my bed tonight? I don't wanna live the rest of my life without your love without your love Get out of my head and turn off the light I just wanna get you alone tonight Give me your love Give me your love

    The Pickle Song

    Trying again. Responding to comments. THE PICKLE SONG v1 My heart became a smoldering bruise. It crumbled when I managed to lose My lover from the Bronx, and my natural response Has been to marinate my mind in booze. v2 I’m consuming everything in reach And that ain’t just a figure of speech. A load of alcohol has been aligned along the wall And I’ve been working through a bottle of each. Chorus I’m in the Black Horse Tavern trying to soften the pain, Pickling a liver and embalming a brain. I guzzle full tilt. Take it right to the hilt. A woman brought it on and by God she’s gonna suffer the guilt. v3 The bartender calls me a schmuck. Complains about the horrible luck That every working night he has to contemplate the sight Of some bellyacher running amuck. v4 (He said) “You nincompoops are always the same. It never gets as bad as you claim. The metropolis is brimming with eleven million women Just get your body back in the game.” Chorus I’m in the Black Horse Tavern trying to soften the pain, Pickling a liver and embalming a brain. I guzzle full tilt. Take it right to the hilt. That woman brought it on and by God she’s gonna suffer the guilt. _______________________________________________________________________________ older version v1 My heart has been smoldering bruise. It just crumbled when I managed to lose My girl from Vancouver and the logical maneuver Was to marinate my mind in booze. v2 An accommodating place to begin Was the tavern of a Holiday Inn. They offer up a drink they call 'the Kitchen Sink' I've been ordering again and again. v3 The months are blowing by in a blur. As I drink and keep a’thinking of her. And the time that I been losing I have occupied musing On the stick that I been using to stir. Chorus I’m like a mortician working in a motel chain, Pickling a liver and embalming a brain, Setting up a shop upon the top of a stool To obliterate a body on account of some Canadian fool v4 The bartender called me a jerk. He said it wasn’t part of his work To grapple every night with the infuriating site Of some bellyacher going berserk. v5 (He said) “You nincompoops are always the same. It never gets as bad as you claim. The metropolis is brimming with eleven million women Just get your body back in the game.” Chorus I’m like a mortician working in a motel chain, Pickling a liver and embalming a brain, Setting up a shop upon the top of a stool To obliterate a body on account of some Canadian fool
  18. Hey all!Haven't been here in a while, but wanted to post a re-mixing of a previous song I posted about two years ago. It's called Move Tonight. I've given it a bit of a makeover and would love to hear any thoughts on production and the song in general. Thanks so much!Mickyhttps://soundcloud.com/micky-shiloah/move-tonight-2018/s-MphcBLyrics:And I wanna know what happened that dayI never saw it coming no And all the events that led up to the nightWhen you got me aloneI think it started with an innocent hi But a dangerous toneAnd then as we drank our way into the nightI could feel it was moreWe were on the rooftop smoking upEventually we're high as fuckI was joking I was gonna jumpYou didn't even see meYou were playing make believeand sat there telling everybody that you weren't drunkI just keep on thinking that I wanna spend tonight with youBut i'll never get the courage I'll wait here for you to make the moveEven though it's against the rules(Even though it's against the rules)Chorus:I wanna tell you that I want youBut I'm afraid that you'll believe meI wanna tell you that I want youBut I'm afraid that you'll believe meCuz All I really wanna do is hold youAnd all I really want is for the nightBut I don't want to tell youCuz i'm afraid you might believe meand make a move tonightThe next thing I knowYou were hanging on You were hanging on to meDragging me down the stairsYou were pulling me, pulling meI was acting like I didn't give a damnThe whispers saying "Oh My God I think they're holding hands"And I was in heavenIt was like the best dreamI was so afraid of waking up and being alone with meI was taking it in as you were spinning me aroundYou were dragging me to your bedKept on dragging me dragging me downI just keep on thinking that I wanna spend tonight with youBut we're running out of time it's almost lightCome on and make the moveEven though it's against the rulesI'm right here come on and make a moveChorus:I wanna tell you that I want youBut I'm afraid that you'll believe meI wanna tell you that I want youBut I'm afraid that you'll believe meCuz All I really wanna do is hold youAnd all I really want is for the nightBut I don't want to tell youCuz i'm afraid you might believe meand make a move tonightRepeats

  20. I wrote this a couple of weeks ago, although the germinal lyric and tune was originally inspired a while back while I was out walking the dog on a sunny day and thinking about the old Rascals' song "Groovin.'"

Even they - would be proud Even they would be proud Even they would be proud A glacier cuts the ocean- No way to slow it down Alone in the silence- You can almost hear the sound Like thunder in the distance- The less the lightning strikes You never knew you'd miss us But you can always drop a line Even they would be proud Even they would be proud Even they would be proud Proud, proud, proud- Even they would be proud Proud, proud, proud- Visualize the heavens when you're reaching for that gold- Sing aloud your praises and give thanks for it all- Visualize the heavens when you're reaching for that gold- Sing aloud your praises and give thanks for it all- Visualize the heavens when you're reaching for that gold- Sing aloud your praises and give thanks for it all- Visualize the heavens when you're reaching for that gold- Sing aloud your praises and give thanks for it all- Even they would be proud Even they would be proud Even they would be proud Proud, proud, proud- Even they would be proud Proud, proud, proud-
  24. My first song I upload here. Any and all critique is very welcome! I made a little video for it. Thank you very much! Lyrics: when I was a boy, I watched TV stunning girls were dancing on the screen they became recurring in my dreams my father always told me, let them go forget about those girls, you’ll be alone I took it to my heart, and carried on when I was a teen, back in my school I snuck into the dance class, like a fool I think I were in awe, they moved so smooth my father always told me, let them be stunning girls like them, they’re not for real but I could not forget just what I’d seen for me it was too late I can see their bodies moving they are dancing and I’m losing it and it hits me in the face in the face, in the face hits me all the time, all the time I can see the girls are dancing I look them in their eyes, they’re glancing (ye) and it hits me in the face in the face, in the face hits me all the time, all the time they say I am obsessed, how I am weak but you cannot erase where you have been my eyes they have been open ever since (but) my father always told me, let them go forget about those girls, you’ll be alone but I could not forget, I carried on for me it was too late I can see their bodies moving... (bridge/interlude) I can see their bodies moving... all the time, all the time all the time, all the time and it hits me in the face in the face, in the face hits me all the time, all the time

    Dreams

    Hey all, I think I posted this song over a year ago, but I've updated the production on it a bit. Wanted to get some feedback on it because I really like this one, but for some reason feel like I can't stop working on it. Would love to hear thoughts. Thanks so much! (updated link) Micky Lyrics: Tossing and turning fever is burning last night I dreamed of you last night I dreamed of you Under the starlight watching you take flight I had a dream of you I had a dream of you And we were walking down the same road I started running to you trying to get close And then I reached out my hand for you to see but you just kept on running kept on running away from me running away from me You unfold me Chorus: Don't you wanna come in my bed tonight? I don't wanna live the rest of my life without your love without your love Get out of my head and turn off the light Say you're gonna stay with me tonight Give me your love Give me your love I'll never say it Not to your face only when I dream of you Only when I dream of you And we were falling in a black hole And I was struggling to pull you close And then you reached out and took my hand and we Just kept on falling kept on falling eternally falling eternally You unfold me Chorus: Don't you wanna come in my bed tonight? I don't wanna live the rest of my life without your love without your love Get out of my head and turn off the light Say you're gonna stay with me tonight Give me your love Give me your love Don't you wanna come in my bed tonight? I don't wanna live the rest of my life without your love without your love Get out of my head and turn off the light I just wanna get you alone tonight Give me your love Give me your love
