Cut You Loose - Ashes for Dreams
on: January 19, 2019, 19:11:12
« Last Edit: January 20, 2019, 01:01:15 by Zedd »

Hi all!!

First song of 2019 for myself and @Jambrains  ... @MichaelA you asked for something dark and moody a couple of songs back - I think this might qualify!!

As always, all feedback will be gratefully received if you find the time to listen and comment!You know you're been unhappy all your life
Every win had edges hard as knives
Where I would compromise, you loved to fight
And happiness would lose each time to being right

You know I understand what lies beneath
Your reticence to even once concede
But though you fought the destiny that was assumed
You chose to play the role that damaged you

Cold, hard truth
I hereby cut you loose
No place here
Find somewhere else to be

Fragments of you scatter all around
Fragile once, the fall is now profound
I sometimes catch a glimpse of you before
Even though you don't exist any more

Cold, Hard truth
I hereby cut you loose
No place here
Find somewhere else to be

Music is my madness
It keeps me sane
It seeps out of my pores
Into my brain
And so I write these words
Onto this page
And there they stay
So I can walk away

@Zedd This is a rocking tune!  Really enjoyed the guitars!  Great job!  Love the tone of your voice since I heard it on "Lean In", and I tend to favor Irish female singers (something about the spirit and accent, dunno).  My favorite line: "Every win had edges hard as knives."  Congrats!

Hi all!!
First song of 2019 for myself and ...

Hahahahaha! So I'm now the artist known as dot-dot-dot?  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D
Let man's petty nations tear themselves apart
My land's only borders lie around my heart

 Two of my most favorite Kitcheners teaming up.
And cut you loose (apple mafia donít approve of loose????) whatís with these guys? Itís a normal word, isnít  it? Any way: You choose to call it this way, and the choice of picture/avatar or whatever you wish to call it is purr Fect.
A northern soul dialect, iím afraid. A great find.... in other words.

Can you make sens of all this? Youíre great if you can!!!

This is what I mean:

Beautiful lyrics, beautiful song, beautiful ly sung and played. Beautiful photo on SC.

I dare to bet that this is one of my favs for 2019 already. No joking.
Iím going back, this time with earphones, to give it another spin!
And no, traveling light, earphones is the best I can get.

Kind regards, Gus

Thanks all for listening and commenting.

@nicetalkintoya -thanks :-). There have to be some advantages to living in this windy, rainy island :-).

Gus, @LePlongeur - thanks a mill. Itís nice to hold that position on your list if only for a while. Thank you so much for your, as always, supportive and intriguing critique.

@Marcus Nalgaber thank you! Yes that dot dot dot fella is quite good at that arranging lark 😁!! Thanks for your lovely comment.

@Dutchbeat ... thanks - delighted you like it!!!

This is a seriously hard hitting production from you guys. That chorus is SO strong.

Everything sounds great....vocals have some ATTITUDE!!! Great guitars and percussion as well.

love this, third listen. Excellent vocal melody, thought-provoking lyrics, subtle yet impactful guitars. Great mix too!  Drums are a bit busy for my taste in the final section but, apart from that, wowzers- it's a hit!

Great work and a so beautiful and well-produced song.
It has made my hair stand on end ...
Good lyrics from the beginning to the end and beautiful choir.
A wonderful beginning for this 2019.
