firth5a: Was there a Hammond organ in there? Really liked the solo, but the song seems to be missing somethin...

**still** listening to this song.....I'm gonna make myself a mix with strings on it, even though it's pretty damn perfect as is.

Didn't Nova split? That's too bad if he did. I enjoyed his music and input.

I have no idea why this song was removed by the band, but what a shame for anyone who didn't get to hear it......it knocked me out. Nova, I still listen to this everyday and I never get tired of it.

This would work great in the movie. I'm giving this 4 stars as a movie song because I think the verse melody and vibe is super strong.

If there is a scene following a couple that just had a fight, going their seperate ways, at least of one of them driving a car -- this has to be on the car radio.

The funny thing is. You have been featured with your first attempt on this site, and I have 5 songs on second stage and never have been featured.

So it looks like all that fancy recording equipment doesn't seem to be helping me much.

mostly boring. really, really boring.
but, that extensive use of expensive recording equipment pays off. it's not that nova is plagued with #@&%!ty musicians, just unidirectional ones or more likely just one who 'calls the shots.'
sounds like songs that were slightly popular when the verve pipe was popular for that 6 hours in '94.
the same verse (play-dough...) seems to repeat 10x's or is that the boring factor comming into play again?
well, you know how much the "recording quality" makes for a 'good' song.
I listened to the track 4 times and haven't puked yet so, what the hell, 4 stars. what do i care.

maybe it's the after-effects of the cannabanoids, or just that i'm used to it, but the vocal thing is smoother for me now, it's really a pretty song, this is why i sometimes wait to post stars

this has movie all over it, i mean,
grocery store, pensive moments,
sex, sad moments, car rides,
maybe partial nudity scene,
she's getting dressed,
finds a card he wrote to her,
her perky breasted nipple
catches the edge of the card
the closest he's going to get to that nipple
ever again...

the song stuck in my head all day the other day when i made that comment, and i can still remember the chorus without playing the song, that's a very very good sign, i just think if it wants to be a radio hit, it needs the aforementioned tweaking, you obviously have the talent to get it there.

It's 3:59 into the song and I just realized what the hell you were saying for the chorus. Very sweet voice but I agree with Alife about the vocal affectation. This reminds me of Tonic and other popular songsters. I said songsters, that's funny, he he he. Anyway, well done--nice one-off take and recording. Not enough going on for me--like I feel that the song needs more lyrics and structural parts. Admittedly, I don't like this genre anyway, so I'm a mean old arbiter.

This song is good but it's a little boring and lacking any interesting melodies. This song is on par with other radio friendly artists I've heard before. This would be album filler.

yesterday, when i had a migraine, this was the only song o could listen to all the way through. very soothing. since i have relaxed my views on vocal dialectic tweaks, i don't have a problem with the bleed thing. this is good. it's nice when you can roll tape and something good like this can happen.

that's funny, it was a good thing that comment was recovered, i'd hate to type it again ;) - yeah this a very pretty contemporary song, girls must love this!

my only comments are vocal related at the moment, i'm not crazy about the way you sort of sing 'blead' in, i'd rather you just sang 'bleed' in...or something, i adapt a little better by the end of the song, but it kind of rubs my brain the wrong way...

i love the high vocal, you have a great voice, but sometimes i want to hear a lower voice, you almost hit it at 2:20 ish, like you started to break a little and your lower singing voice wanted to come in.. i want a more variety instead of having the whole song be that high voice.... at least that's how i feel now.

How come none of the new tunes have comments yet?

This is really pretty Nova. I think my main crit is that the affectation on the vocal makes the lyrics in the chorus hard to understand.

The tempo and groove on this is really nice and I love the minimal solo part. I don't think the chorus lives up to everything around it, though. And last, I've got to say that you are right that getting a good recording helps because the recording here is top-notch (although, between you and me, you would have won the battle here even with a bad recording!).

This is really pretty...If I was nit-picking, I'd say the affectation on the vocal in the chorus makes it hard to understand the lyrics...there's one instrumental passage right in between vs 1 and 2 right after the acoustic comes in where I think the timing of the keys and guitar doesn't quite work...my favorite thing, though, is the 4 chord in the middle of the chorus. Very tasty.

Unmastered, live recording. We did this live in the studio, one take. It is what it is.

Just wanna see what ya'll think.

Lyrics:

You just can't leave me without an explanation...
You just can't up and go now without giving an explanation...

But it's alright, If you don't understand...
And it's alright, if you don't...open the wound again...

Bleed Out, Bleed In....
When it's over then it's over...

You just can't up and go now without a reason...
I think you never did understand...my reasons...

But it's alright, If you don't understand...
And it's alright, if you don't...open the wound again...

Bleed Out, Bleed In....
When it's over then it's over...
