    [​IMG]


    The wind is blowing
    A whisper or two
    It’s gotten too hot
    To see the morning dew

    The pain of living
    In the warmth outside
    Refrain from giving
    Slowly duck and hide

    The ceaseless laughter
    Through your heart like a spear
    And it seems as if
    The broken clouds won’t clear

    The cold of the storm
    Is slowly drawing near
    When the day is born
    And the night will disappear

    The sun’s still out
    While it slowly fades
    But you need the light
    To feel the shade

    So ease your mind
    Beating on your head
    Come sit under the tree
    Feel the shade instead


    She said she needs a man
    He said he feeds the plan
    Getting everything done
    While you’re out having fun

    But she opened the door
    Put her feet on the floor
    And she walked away
    She just wanted to play

    Went out in the sun
    Fast as she could run
    From underneath the tree
    Because she was afraid

    Her eyes were heavy
    Wanted to be awake
    They weren’t real
    She didn’t like the shade

    The sun’s still out
    While it slowly fades
    But you need the light
    To feel the shade

    So ease your mind
    Beating on your head
    Come sit under the tree
    Feel the shade instead


    At the end of the game
    Your life is still the same
    And you feel the pain
    While it drives you insane

    Fading with the sun
    Feel like your on the run
    On your painful knees
    Looking for that tree

    But then you remember
    What the sun felt like
    Like it was November
    Fighting for your life

    It feels like a cage
    Feels like a broken rage
    Like a lump in your stomach
    You got to turn the page

    The sun’s still out
    While it slowly fades
    But you need the light
    To feel the shade

    So ease your mind
    Beating on your head
    Come sit under the tree
    Feel the shade instead

    Well, I had some free time, so I downloaded it. I really like the vocals, it's probably my favorite part of the song. There is something too... busy going on melodically, I'm not sure if it's the bass or guitar. Something is clashing with something. The drums are pretty good, I think. Aside from the "too busyness" that I mentioned (which may be just me). Good song, it comes together real well.

    I think this is my favorite Schmee production yet(next to duck duck goose), everything had a very nice feel too it, and while there were some spotty parts with the bass parts, overall it didn't detract from the song at all.

    good stuff.

    See, what did I tell ya? Getting one person to reply to your thread and you'll get a bunch of people to reply to your thread.

    I listened to the song again, it is really nice. I still love the vocals, and it's got a really cool laid back feel to it. Very refreshing because it's rockin' but not distorted.

    I think you should submit this song to the sampler, I think it's really killer.
