You've been taking over me
I know, unintentionally
You're words, like fire to the flame
We know, we're both to blame
When you're near, my world falls into place
When you're not, I'm craving your embrace

Cause it's you, it's you, I'm dreaming all about
And from you, from you, I'm needing to break out
But it's true, it's true, you've got your grip on me
From you, I'm needing to be free
But from you, I'm too in love to leave

You've been taking over me
We know, that we both can see
Just a look, lights up your face
Just a smile, makes my heart race

When you're near, my world falls into place
When you're not, I crave for your embrace

Cause it's you, it's you, I'm dreaming all about
And from you, from you, I'm needing to break out
But it's true, it's true, you've got your grip on me
From you, I'm needing to be free
But from you, I'm too in love to leave

Hi Alice,

This is a beautiful song. The guitar picking is very nice and your vocals sound very pure.

A nice melody and harmonies - very enjoyable to listen to.

cheers

Holy cow, this is one great song! Nice chords progression. Really tasty picking! And vocals are sublime and the BVs are stellar as well. Goosebumps! Where have you been hiding? Welcome!

My only gripe is on the production really and mailnly the vocals, first there is some issue that makes the vocals sound a bit "contained", almost like you were staning inside a big tube/pipe or something. Secondly, when the backing vocals comes in there is almost a flanging/chorusing effect coming into play. Both these artifacts should be addressable though. Sorry, can't be more specific on how to fix these expect for the usual eq/panning recommendations. I can get things to where I want them but usuallly don't have much of a clue how to get there.

Anyway, these small shortcomings in no way distract from the fact that this is a great song/performance, kudos!

WOW! This is so beautiful! :D I like the emotion embedded within it. The words seem to all fall beautifully in place and fuse in so well with the music. The harmonies are fantastic and it’s amazing how you manage to create such an intriguing soundscape with just the guitar strings and your voice. Brilliant song! :)

– A pleasure to listen too :D

Great song Alice!!!
music and chords flow very naturally and at the same time you have a great build in your vocal melody and chord changes

awesome!
This could be spiced up productionwise, i think by more variation in instrumentation and mix / production

very very nice song, extra karma points for this song!

Ow yes that's recognizable! Great words!
I love your guitar style, great fingerpicking here.
And I saw on youtube you can do that while singing, and how!
Did you record this in 2 takes? 1 for Guitar+vocal and 1 for the harmony?
Enjoyed this one a lot, thanks for sharing!

Hi Alice,

oh what a really, really beautiful song!!! I love your natural and warm way of singing, also the harmonies of the voices, not to speak of the melody and your excellent guitar play! Yes, and the lyrics can indeed find a way to many hearts.
