On the Run

https://soundcloud.com/alexxxiii/on-the-run

Hello all, I hope everyone is doing well! I am getting back into recording again while social distancing and so will try to start contributing again more regularly.  :dance:

This is just a rough demo and I'm still fleshing out the lyrics/ trying to make it less repetitive - but as always would love some suggestions and advice on this one. (also please ignore the sniffing as I had a cold when recording)

Lyrics:
I run
skip the obvious
take the only road I know
I run
cause it's obvious
and I long for the unknown
you're only going to make it if you try
I know I'm going to make it if I try
so I'm on the run

I run
I was born for it
Im addicted to the rush
I run
cause my differences
are the strengths that you can't touch
you're only going to make it if you try
I Know I'm going to make it if I try

And oh all the things we could do when we're on the
so oh come along come along come along and run
we'll just have fun
Cause I'm, I'm alive when I'm on the run x2
I can breathe again when I'm on the run
Yes I, I'm alive when I'm on the run

Lyrics for verse 2 aren't really fleshed out yet...

@Alex A stunning track. Love the rawness of it. I can feel the life in your voice. Great heartfelt lyrics too, I love where you put the accents in your words. It has a real kind of song next to the fire feel to it.

Stunning vocals in that repeated pre-chorus. This song is really very good as is. Love the guitar work as well.

Eat your heart out all these identical sounding people with identical movements.
This one has heart and soul and isn’t hugged to death. An honest piece of work @Alex
I could get used to this quality. I love it.
Kind regards, Gus

I’ve been back for another dose @Alex .
Doesn’t pay the bills, I know. But I thought I’d let you know.
Keep on keepin’ on said Curtis Mayfield. I hope you know what he means.

Hi @Alex   :)   I like everything about it. It will be a great song.

Definitely reference to Lorde "Royals" in there. That's a legit pop sound. I enjoy listening to your music because I can hear the years. … if that makes sense.... I dig the 2008 - 2012 sounds .... a lot!

You mentioned you were sick when recording so you obviously know about the few parts that would need help. When you re-record and everything.

Only one little issue ---
:55
doubled/ harmonies - IDK  - right there I think you have to figure out what the right note choices would be. "Strength that you can touch" part? Or maybe that part shouldn't have a harmony?

Anyway, good show! Looking forward to the final.
