  1. This is the first project that I've released and I'm not the greatest at networking and marketing so I don't have a lot of traffic. I'm no producer, I recorded on headphones but I feel that if you look deep, you'll see the good in the songs. If there's any comments on anything other than recording quality and mixing, you're welcome. It's a concept album running through the different stages of a relationship using many genres to fit the mood. Leaving us the question that most face after a breakup, whether to start over or just take a pause before hitting play again. https://soundcloud.com/tracylmusic/sets/pause-and-start-over Intro(Pause and Start Over ) Love Like Gold (Take A Chance) Across The Miles Cassie(Interlude) Here I Am Candleburn One Night
  2. Hello SoulHuntah, thanks very much for the analysis. I'm glad you enjoyed it. You were right in that I did some typos(well a lot lol) I was rushing in writing it, I posted this right after I wrote it in an hour. I'll fix those. The last verse was a switch of tone because it's only then I actually realized the meaning of the chorus/hook (which wasn't mine), so I wanted the listener/ reader to realize it too at that time, so that on second and third listen, the hook just keeps haunting the inevitable ending. It's a song meant to be heard multiple times. You can check the beat I wrote it to on here: https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjIgYezwNnKAhXFlYMKHeXnDMMQtwIIPzAA&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3D0mecEITOiTw&usg=AFQjCNECsaT37_0cvSghM9Sf1dwSQOsNaw&sig2=jn781jrEHnW6yVmWURcJeQ
  3. Damn, she got me there again Mixed feelings: betrayal ends with pain I couldn't tell it wasn't real Fell for the same stupid deal Now tell me how can I heal Soul mates staring to lose appeal Do we continue? Do I keep going knowing you won't tell me the truth? When we were together I only heard I love you backs And now I'm pouring my soul on the track Who's gonna hear this? Besides you I mean What will they think of me then That I'm soft crying over you That I'm often thinking that we're through "But they don't get it You're like a magnet You pull me back You know my darkest secrets You're all my heart desires But still you drowned all our fires You drowned all our fires" You leaving again, shoulda known After all these times you'd think I grown After all these times you'd think I'd learn f*ck that, I'll let the candle burn on Vineland past the candle shrine that burns on every night for someone she lets herself go like an angel in the snow she lays down on her back down on her back - she goes take me over when I'm gone take me over make me strong take me over when I'm gone will they burn for me She told me she missed me Proceeded to kiss me Right after, she dissed me And I hate it She pull and push me like a door I'm without handles She's without control I'll lose this battle If I don't go I'm no evil She's no angel We're both lethal Clothed in diamond Loves her weapon She pulls me back in Back to Vineland Where we first met Didn't call it love yet But now it's so set My friends said stop man She's danger My friend's a cop man He'll change ya But here I am at a dinner for two Outside waiting for you I guess I'm still acting like a fool Cause you haven't even come too Watching the cars pass at every turn f*ck that, I'll let the candles burn on Vineland past the candle shrine that burns on every night for someone she lets herself go like an angel in the snow she lays down on her back down on her back - she goes take me over when I'm gone take me over make me strong take me over when I'm gone will they burn for me He left the place where he'd meet her Walked back on Vineland street Fresh air makes the heart feel better The scent of roses is so sweet Only out there he didn't find peace Only the car of his missing queen She was shot on the way there Louis Vuitton, she's soaked in blood she wear The boy miss her and now wish they would talk Now he's always at the shrine on the sidewalk Right there he placed on top of her urn A candle and he's gon' let it burn
  4. Yeah, I guess. It'll be 50/50. But really this is more of a project to help develop the muscle of songwriting and a fun way to see how other people could interpret and write from the same source. I was thinking of doing it as a Creative Commons license, of course with the appropriate credits given.
  5. Call You Home First one, I'll start off with the saddest one. I won't give a specific genre, as I think all genre can tell the same story. "This man(Boy) is vulnerable and left lonely at home since she(Girl) left him alone. Now he's just staring at his phone, thinking if he should call her to come home."
  6. Hey, so I'm writing this whole new album. And usually when I do, I run out of ideas pretty quickly. There's this exercise I do where I do like an overview/outline of the album. I write the name of a song and a description of the story I want to write from that. And from that, I could write the lyrics to an album in one day. And most of them usually make the cut. So I was working on this new free album and I thought, I should share the experience with the songwriters of this forum. Every 24 hours, I will post a title and a description for a song, and participants can post lyrics they could fathom from what they got. I will put a poll and the songs with the highest votes will get to collaborate with EDM producer Keen() on making the songs happen and make a whole album that could twin with mine. I think it'd be a fun, challenging and interesting activity so make the most of it and join.
  7. Hey, not bad. Nice finish but I think the 2nd verse would need reworking. Well, the beginning of it. I had to force myself to go through it but it was worth it after. Yet I still think you should rethink over it. Maybe just erase it all together ill leave you to die cuz you'd leave me get rid of compassion it'll only hurt me you think that people care about love you nigga get me out And add a few lines to the finish to show how you changed or did not change, if you want to conclude it. Except from these it was great the words just fell in place and made this oddly interesting character.
