stay strong, find a way to give.

I wrote this about two years ago at the beginning of my sound design course.
It was at the end of a time of highly productive creativity.
This cubase treatment went quickly enough, getting the vocals took a while. 
This is definitely the last track of my album "imaginaries".

I hope you like it.
Feedback would be much appreciated

The lyrics:

Stay Strong, Find a Way to Give

        ________________stay strong________________
                              keep the genie in the bottle
                           find a way to live
                              n' before too long
  ________________we'll see________________
                 it is not easy
                     I have been there
                         n' it's still in me
   they keep on coming back for more
 they'll keep on coming back until there is. no. more

       ________________good luck_______________
                          with them there newspapers                     
                     back to front graffiti,
                  coin in the cup
_____________down-strum_______________
          doesn't ask for kindness
               nothing above y'
you're older than the sun
     n' they'll keep on coming back for more
    n' these multitudes of broken hearts are all yours

     stay strong, find a way to live
          stay strong, try to find a way to give

                   find a way to. . .

          _________________vampires________________                                   
                              find a way to bleed you
                       stripped of all pretense
               (y'know) somehow they need you
______________they're in there________________
              in your system
                 despite all efforts
                     to resist them
         they' tearin' up the disco-dirty floor
     they keep on coming back until there is. no. more

         stay strong, find a way to live
             stay strong, try to find a way to give

                                      find a way to give

@Rightly I think this is a really cool song. I loved the lyrics as soon as I read them, then listened to your music and it grabbed me as soon as it began. Love the intro, you came in quick with vocals, which sound great by the way!! ::thumb::

Great in a weird way.
Don't ask me what it is that makes it weird, because I can put it into words.
But weird or not, I like it a lot.
Kind regards, Gus

I agree with @Kellyanneg about the strong intro. You set this one up with nice drive and then keep that drive going with that great bass line and the strong electric guitar work. That provides an excellent vehicle for your message.

Very cool vocal production in this one. Very strong Jim Morrison feel.

Thanks Gus!

hey what you said on that other song "the ghost life"
no problem! I took it as constructive feedback, works for me and I appreciate it.

this song. It is weird in a way I like, it has character.
I still think it's my limitations that define my voice as an artist.
I aim to push my limits, n I will, but I'm still having fun here the way I am.
The future is bright.
