New epic synthpop!

Recommended Posts

New song, hope you like it.

Lyrics:

Quote

Sometimes, just sometimes
You need to swallow your pride
And cast your feelings aside
Sometimes, just sometimes
Prayers wont work on a broken mind
But sometimes, only sometimes
The road to salvation
Is to turn a blind eye

I find it hard to take control
I find it much easier just to let it slide
Atleast for a while
It keeps me awake at night
I find it hard to let you in
I find it even harder not to let it show
And so i lie
It keeps me awake at night
I find it hard to lay my heart
In the palm of your hand
I find it hard to ever trust you again
I hope you understand

But Sometimes, just sometimes
You need to swallow your pride
And cast your feelings aside
Sometimes, just sometimes
Prayers wont work on a broken mind
But sometimes, only sometimes
The road to salvation
Is to turn a blind eye

I find it hard to open up
I turn to ice, I run and hide
Another nervous smile
It keeps me awake at night
Oh why is it so hard to just be yourself
I always close my eyes and
Pretend that im someone else
It keeps me awake at night  
I find it hard to lay my heart
In the palm of your hand
I find it hard to ever trust you again
I hope you understand

But sometimes, just sometimes
You need to swallow your pride
And cast your feelings aside
Sometimes, just sometimes
Prayers wont work on a broken mind
But sometimes, only sometimes
The road to salvation
Is to turn a blind eye
It keeps me awake at night

Did i lose you right now
Did i lose you right now
Did i lose you right now
Did i lose you somehow

I tried my best to never look back
But every road leads to the past
Did i lose you right now
Did i lose you right now
Forever till the day i die
Forever you and i
Did i lose you right now
Did i lose you somehow

I really like the cool synth arrangement and the sound is great. I'll probably have to listen a bit more to get into the song itself.

I can't remember but have I heard this before? Did you post this earlier in the other forum, or is it new-new?

Synths and their treatment are top quality. Arrangement goes down easy. The vocals when harmonized are great, and well mixed! The solo lead vocal was the weakest link here, for me. It wasn't bad, but just not as smoooooth as the rest of the work. I dunno, he doesn't have a bad voice, it's not pitchy or anything weird - it's just for me his vocal timbre doesn't match the piece that well. But it's absolutely great when it's got the excellent background harmonies, and a little more reverb. Love those parts.

I suppose everybody has an opinion!

 

Your piece is extremely listenable and the mix / arrangement is way good.

 

cheers,

-Tom

I like the song and all the performances and the arrangement.  My only nit is it's a bit too long.   The bridge is quite nice but IMHO it takes too long to get there.  Also, I found myself wanting to hear a bit more bass.

This sounds to me like a 60s song, esp the synths.   I thought everything sounded very good, the vocals and instruments and the mix but there was something about the structure that didn't work for me.  Like at 2:18 and 4:04   "I find it hard"    seemed like a chorus starting up with a nice melodic element but then it didn't go there.  A more distinctive chorus would give the song a better structure,  but as always this is just one man's opinion.

Thanks Bjorn for your kind words and feedback. I guess i have a little bit of experimenting going on in the arrangement here.

Will go back to a more normal format in next song. :)

Impressive lead vocal, and i enjoyed the lyrics to this. I agree with Johnbee about wanting to hear more bass in the mix.

Thank you very much Douglas for your kind words and feedback! :)
