"To die is like loving" older song of mine

Hello
To fill this forum a bit I decided to post an older song of mine.First version is only my guitar and me and for the second version someone added a few instruments as a band version.Hope you like both. :D

My guitar and me
https://soundcloud.com/a-fisch-1/to-die-is-like-loving

Bandversion
https://soundcloud.com/a-fisch-1/to-die-is-like-loving-1

To die is like loving 

Strophe 1: I told you my friend I have to die
I told you my friend that we can't fly
away in the dark away in the knight
away from the darkness into the light
away to a place where we don't have to fight
I told you my friend so many things
I told you my friend you never win
to many broken hearts till now
to many lies no one knows why
to many streets to many cross roads
which bring you far away from home

Refrain:
Hope to see you soon again
Hope to be a better man
Hope to give my live a chance
Hope it is no hopeless sense
to start/ my flight/ again

Strophe 2: I told you my friend time never end
I told you my friend don't run for tribute
don't try to figure out what life's about
don't try to find a reason for what
it doesn't matter it doesn't not
I told you my friend we couldn't run away
I told you my friend our ticket is paid from someone else
we only have to take the train
whom brings us back to beginning again
we can not fly away
haven't a chance to take another way.

Instrumental Bridge with Refrain:

Strophe 3: I told you my friend live never stops
because it always start new at the end
So don't be hopeless and fill your dreams right
life is not less then your heaviest fight
I want to tell you so much but now it's over
hear my last words my friend
darkness comes closer
to die is like loving it can't be wrong
to die is like searching for a brand new song
I told you my friend there is no end
life always goes on

Refrain:

Regards Alexander

Hi Alxeander ,

I really like your voice you know , it has a nice tone

I think this is excellent , the chord development is very nice - I listened to the band version - it's first class - sounds like a real band

And the voice doubling in the chorus is really strong

I told you my friend don't run for tribute is a great line

No criticism - I just really enjoyed this

Hi Alexander,

This is my favourite of yours.
The additional instruments really add something. They provide a solid framework for your style of vocal. The only minor thing I'd raise is that some appear, then disappear, never to be heard again - feels a little like you've thrown the kitchen sink at it. Here's a organ, here's a dobro. I'd perhaps use one, or both, but have them working together, even if they are pushed right back.
That said, i really like it. It keeps you interested with its ebb and flows. Nicely dark. And the switch to double vocals is really good.

Good stuff.

Hey Alexander,

I've said before and here I go gain - your acoustic guitar recording is fantastic.  For me, you achieve a better acoustic guitar recording than any of us. Wonderful.  You have a unique voice too.  I think that that your songs would slowly reveal their magic to the listener with repeated listens but they cleverly draw the listener in from the first listen, persuading him/her to want to hear more.  I love your music!

Very best wishes

Paul

Very cool song, Alexander!  :)

I find it hard to decide which version I like better...

The guitar only version sounds a lot more intimate and shines a light on both the excellent (and at times unusual) chord progression and your guitar playing, which sounds VERY good to me.
Seriously, the chord progression is awesome, great writing!

But then there's the full band version, and quite frankly, the arrangement and choice of instrumentation is fantastic! My compliments to your friend!

I like both versions a lot, can't think of any criticism either...

Gro?artige Songs, Hut ab!

  Hi Alex,

  Yeah...cool song, has style ;D ;D   Reminded me a bit of Zappa, don't know why....think it might be the arrangement.
 
  Loved the character in your voice and delivery....unique and captivating.

  I preferred the the organ to the dobro/banjo (not sure ;D) and would agree with Digger about choosing one instrument
  and sticking with it....but that's taste ;D

  Btw...thought the drummer sounded good, doesn't want any work does he?? ;D ;D

  Nice work guys

Was really great to hear a band version from you just get an idea of what one of your songs would sound like with a full production. 

I was not disappointed. This was really good. You put it all together without compromising your identifiable style. Especially loved it when the organ a came in. Very well done.

The whole song was a great listen.

Hi Fischermans, it is me, totally off topic

but, it is actually a crime to ask you to play to a fixed BPM  or midiclick

i am sorry for even asking

but this time turned it around, i let you do the pace and we follow, and it seriously sound excellent, well that is  what i think

but i was talking about Blue eyes in the dark...back on topic, in 3, 2,1 ...... ;D ;D ;D ;D
