Finally spilled my heart today, but she pushed back and I got turned away
Oh no, it's not how it was supposed to go
Thinking about all the things in my head, remembering all those words you said
But she left nothing to interpretation, and now her guilt is no consolation, oh I gotta move on
Thinking back to yesterday, when her smile said my name
Change, it happened to fast
Was banking on false premises, can you please tell me what this is?
When you, walked away from me
Should've seen it coming, that she wouldn't let my love in
And now the time only swallows my pain
And she's so smug when she says my name, oh, it weighs on me
Her sweet gaze only tells lies, and I've been snakebit too many times,
Oh I want a new heart
Oh when she does, I don't, when I do, she doesn't
Oh when she does, I don't, when I do, she doesn't
Well I guess I already knew somehow, still so hard when I found out
But I know I'm in a different place now, cuz I don't feel the same when you're around
Here she comes, here she, here she comes, taunting me
And her sweet gaze only tells lies, and I've been snakebit too many times

Welcome to JPF, DM:

Enjoyed my listen. I hope you'll stick around and if you need help "learning the ropes" hear at JPF... don't be shy.

When you feel a bit more comfortable with us, tell us more about yourself, your musical aspirations and general direction. Meanwhile, send more... and don't forget to comment on songposts by other participants on the MP3 forum.

Our founder, Brian is out of pocket for at least a few days with some pretty dicy surgery going on... otherwise, he would be here to welcome you as well.

Thanks for sharing... best of luck to you... ----Dave

I enjoyed this very much. The combination of your enthusiastic vocals with the laid back two chord progression is irresistible.

I would consider adding some fills on those parts where you aren't singing. Something as simple as a pentatonic (do re mi so la) kind of melody that fits the chords, maybe on the very same guitar as an overdub. I like how your piano comes in late, reminding me of "Pink Moon" by Nick Drake..

Going from a filtered sound to a normal one was an interesting choice. If the intention was for it to sound accidental, it works, cuz it goes to "normal" in the middle of a phrase, where the more obvious approach would be to remove the heavy EQ or filter settings at the beginning of a phrase or section, on the first beat of the bar, the one.

Welcome to JPF,

Thank you for listening, Jane and Michael! The lofi beginning was intentional, with it becoming normal at "But she left nothing to interpretation" in order to more or less hook the listener in a bit more into the song.

Hi DM ...

Welcome to JPF. I've been a member here almost 20 years, with a fairly long break recently. Hope you hang around for a while.

A really nice song with a spirited vocal. It's a great foundation. I agree that if you fill it out, it would really kick. It's a good lyric, so you have an excellent foundation to build around. Good luck!
