This one doesn't have a name, so feel free to suggest one if you can think of one.

I'm overlooking/ the street we used to live
The lofty gum trees/ they always forgive
Birthday parties and broken bones
You left me here with too many unknowns

Im overlooking/ the beach that we called ours
Searing summers/ lying on our towels
Bright blue ocean and golden sand
A love affair with this sunburned land

You said goodbye you left you went away
Would I be different if you were still here today
You said goodbye you left you went away
But Im still here I chose to stay

Im overlooking/ the photos in my head
Backyard cricket/ six if you hit the shed
Football socks and smiling faces
How could you leave, of all places

You said goodbye you left you went away
Would I be different if you were still here today
You said goodbye you left you went away
But Im still here I chose to stay

I was only seventeen
Sneaking out of windows, caught by the fly screen
Do you miss the sun the sea
But most of all...
do you miss me?

You said goodbye you left you went away
Would I be different if you were still here today
You said goodbye you left you went away
But Im still here I chose to stay

You said goodbye you left you went away
Would I be different if you were still here today?


And here's a slightly crappy recording of it, although this was recorded quite a while ago:


It's a bit lame and sappy I must admit!

Edit: Sorry the vocals are so quiet, that's what you get when you're just using the in-built mic in your computer!

I love it, I really do.

But there's one thing that I can't put my finger on just yet that I think should change. I will let you know as soon as possible.

Beautiful. <3

There's not much I can do about that unless I force myself to play guitar quietly or record the guitar and vocals separately. I don't own any professional recording gear whatsoever and record directly from the tiny in-built mic on my mac. I shall work on it though.

I don't have any problems with the vocals being soft or barely audible, (for instance REM's early stuff, I could never understand what Michael Stipe sang,) imo it adds mystery to the song.

Lateralus,
Nice song. The vocals might be as loud as you like but the tone of the recording is good.

Just a tip in response to that last video: I dont know if you normally do it but try just fingerpicking/strumming. Not just for more control of the sound but it'll make it warmer and quieter so your vocals will appear louder.

Very good though, I enjoyed it.
