I'm new to this but check it out and let me know what you think! I may be looking for a producer for this one but here it is for now.

(I notice most people are sharing via Soundcloud. I hope band camp is ok)

Lyrics:

I used to think that we were something
I used to think that we were something

I caught the clouds and peaked your interest
I took a mile and left you inches

But you donít know me
Just listen to yourself
Iíll help you tear me down

I guess itís my fault
I went and let you in
So you can tell your friends
You played my game
And you won me over

I took a screenshot of that one time
I shot my shot and crossed the goal line

You had that twinkle like the sunshine
With my smile between your eyes

I guess itís my fault
I went and let you in
So you can tell your friends
You played my game
And you won me over

When you sit by the shore line
Do you think youíre my mind?

And I think that itís high time
I accept what I canít find

Because I crawled over your line
And I fell from your high climb

Catch a glimpse of the sunrise
Discontent like a fine wine

I guess itís my fault
I went and let you in
So you can tell your friends
You played my game
And you won me over

Welcome Buddy!
A courageous first, I must say.

I don't use SoundCloud that much. But if you want to engage in a challenge, you will save the Management a lot of time if you use SoundCloud.

This is an international forum, so also a lot of non native speakers, plus people from all walks of life. So posting the lyrics is the practical thing to do.

I'll be back later for another spin on a better set of head phones.
Go Go Go Buddy!
Kind regards, Gus

I really like this @BuddyWontTell . It has great dynamics and I love the way you sing it. This tune has serious potential!

Great lyrics.....they have a classic feel that is mixed with some great 21st century imagery.

Welcome to The Kitchen. Take a look around at some of the other threads. Leave a bit of feedback and folks will return the favor. Folks really need to come by and listen to this production.

@BuddyWontTell  - welcome to the kitchen here!
Bandcamp sure is okay! Soundcloud en bandcamp can work comlementary. SC has the advantage of putting comments in the songline, BC has a wonderful interface and great weekly podcast.

Wonderful lyrics - modern love contemplations. The percussion in this song is really ace! Looking forward hearing more.
