Are you there?
And if you are how can this be your plan?
It feels like madness
Me falling while you're standing there

I understand
I've got nothing without you
You like to remind me
I'm like a spider who's tangled in your web

Well, what if I decide to go the other way?
And really far away?
Because I feel like I've had enough?

I bet you'd let me go and go and go
Until I came back to you

Even though I say it I don't want it
And sometimes I hate it, you've got to know it
There's nothing I want more than you

Just hold onto me
Let me climb in and get real close
I'm totally broken, there's nothing left
.....I don't know why you want me.....
But I'm yours

Here is a home recording of a stream of consciousness love song. The singer is a broken individual hoping for healing in love. Passionately sung with plenty of angst, accompanied by piano with some background ambiance from the synthesizer. Favorite lyric: Me falling while you're standing there. Another: Spider tangled in your web. Very creative.

Wow, there is really something special going on here. The extreme raw nature of this is a big part. What would detract from many songs is what makes this really work... we hear authenticity, passion, and a haunting beauty that few of us could emulate with that single mic and a piano with loud clunky pedals. It is perfect.

The voice is wonderfully organic and transitions from those near-falsetto notes to the lower register very well while maintaining an authentic pitch and timbre that is a breath of fresh air compared to many tracks these days.

It isn't a fancy or flashy production. Part of me would love to hear a stronger "hook" coming around, or a bit more refined mix... but in the end, I wouldn't change a damned thing.
