I've started writing music. Here's a rough demo of a thing. It's okay

Lyrics:

 

 

 

You haven’t said a word 
To me in months
I still feel the coldness 
Of your breath
The last time we spoke.
 
I wish you would come
Back around,
So I can tell you that I’m fine
And ask you how you've been.
 
The last time we spoke
There was snow on the ground,
And the last time we spoke,
You said you didn't care what
Happened to me at all.
 
And then I told you 
You’d be back by spring
But you’re not back yet
And the flowers are starting
To grow
And I’m still waiting for 
The telephone to ring
 
I waited all winter long
For you to come home,
But the flowers are 
Starting to grow

Damn :'( the piano is really lovely but honestly I wish your vox were clearer. They kinda mushed together when I listened to it, and then I read the lyrics and listened again and could kinda hear it but I think the lyrics are pretty powerful so I wish they were more audible and backgroundy

thanks guys  :)

 

i've heard that from a few people about the vox, although I kind of intentionally muddied them almost barely audible into the mix because I liked the effect. it's just a demo and they'll be clearer for the full track I'm working on

I've done a lot of music since I've been off MT.

Lyrics:

 

 

 

Your foreheads burning
The fevers taking its toll
You're yelling through 
The telephone at someone
I don't know
 
Your face is red when
You finally hang up
And in your eyes
I see that you are
Tired of it all
 
I say that it is time
To go to sleep
Hey Ellie, in your dreams
You'll find the relief 
That you seek
 
But that's a lie
But that's a lie
But its what I have to do
Because I love you

Lyrics:

 

 

 

I’m moving on 
I’m moving out
There’s nothing left here
To cry about
Sky’s gone dark
You’re gone forever
I’m free, easy going
But you thought you were clever
 
Now I’m not sure where to
Go from here
Lost in the world
Got a lot of fears
 
I can do anything 
That I want to do
But I still don’t know
What I want to do
 
Think about you
When it starts to rain
I know this should be simple
And it should be plain
But it’s not so I head 
To the coffee shop
I’m on my fourth or fifth cup
Not about to stop
 
I’ve moved on and
I’ve moved out
Found a couple things
To cry about
Now I know what it means
To be in the dark
Watching the sunset
Alone in the park
 
Now I know myself better
Then I ever knew you
But I know what you meant by
“I hate you too”
 
Those were the last words
That you said to me
They still ring strong
And it’s plain to see
 
That I’m never going back
To that house from hell
Sell it, burn it
You might as well
Doesn’t make a difference
To me either way
One more cup to drink
Then I’m done for the day

This is probably my favorite right now.

Lyrics:

 

 

 

Step outside
Feel that the end has come
There’s stillness in the air
No one else is around
 
Still praise his name
Still praise his name
 
Try to find someone that I know
Spend a little time crying too
Pray for death at the church across the street
Nothing comes, nothing comes
 
Still praise his name
With nothing left at all
Still praise his name
Still praise his name
With nothing left at all
Still praise his name
 
Prepare for what the future has in store
Maybe I’ll just lay here for a while
 
Still praise his name
Still praise his name

i like that. the guitar line in particular is quite beautiful. agree with one commenter that i kind of wish the vocals weren't so muddy but i guess that's what you were going for, keep it up <3
