ghengus23: great down dirty country rock feelin' from the start. Reminds me of social distortion. Not sure if...

Ok, just looking through your back-catalogue...

Fantastic song, no such party of five feeling from me. Your voice is (i'll refrain from using perfect because of my comment on your other song)...great. It's just that this song works with you top singing.

I'm just grooving on this little number, i like the little instrumental additions, it makes it a class above what it would have been if it was just acoustic.

oh right! that's that depressing show with Matthew Fox in it,, we used to have it on here in Oz a few years ago.. it does have depressing lyrics, so. sure, I guess you could call that a party of five vibe.

I think it's a TV show here in the US

What's a 'Party of Five' vibe?

Personally, I think that the risk i took on this song was keeping it simple.. the song works best for me without some odd section, chord changing bit.. if you want that check out pretty much all of my other songs.

it's got some "Party of Five" vibe, not too many risks taken, pretty steady throughout. nice voice quality, just lacks originality or melodic variation.

This is good stuff! I like your sound. It's got a lot of charm to it.

I think this song could be easily dismissed because it has nothing to pull the listener in. The listener would just have to be in the mood to hear your song.

'tis a thing of beauty. I like the minimal approach...all that open space becomes a part of the song. It's both relaxing and engaging. You did a great job putting this one together.

ah grow up. i kid, i kid. i like your shiny song. even some of the #@&%! chords that make it sound twitchy and strange.

That reads like another 'featured comment' from itchy "it's not a bomb shell but it's a pretty girl nonetheless".. I think I might have to steal that line for my next song.

thanks to everyone for the extremely kind words.. they're much appreciated, and neccesary for my confidence levels.

oh I think this is a sing along-er, just as much as their others if not more. Cause it takes it's time. I like it because it's packed but it doesn't try to club you over the head with it's cleverness. It simply presents itself and waits for you to come to it. That's what a confident song does. This is a song you can get to know. It's not a bomb shell but it's a pretty girl nonetheless.

The only thing this song sounds like here are the other We Grow Up songs here.

this is stunning in all respects... it's not as pop/hooky as your other stuff, but it makes up for it by being so impeccably well-expressed, vocally... enchanting... it's very calming, mentally... it's not a song to sing a long with, it's like listening to classical requests my silence.

i love the arrangement, love the high harmonies, especially in the last verse "take my love..."

"well protected by all your wounds, used to lick them all in a crowded room..."

I usually tell songwriters to use more concrete imagery; No need here. But this song's lyrics are also intimate, personal, and introspective. Most songwriters don't carry that off very well...We Grow Up has forged a new path, and raised a bar of excellence here, stylistically. This is a beautiful song. Well concieved, well written, well played and sung.

I am simply in awe of this brilliant piece of music. The subtle key pads are mixed to perfection. But then the string counterpoint 3/4 thru are the deal closer. Great. Simply fantastic.

Getting old, very slow and steady
Working for a pay cheque
You don't really live, you just exist
When you're out. pretty girls dismiss you
they don't want to kiss you,
They don't want to take you to their beds
The Dj plays another tune,
Fades in from the last one,
Dancing on your own is not much fun

And the fools you meet in the bar tonight,
Might distract you from your unworthy life
But they don't mean much, just a trick of light
and they'll fade away in the morning light

Lost your love, in an act of madness,
overcome by sadness,
Overcome by beer and vodka too,
Woke up in an unknown bed,
With a broken heart and an acheing head
She's gone, she's gone, she's gone
Oh god! what have you done?!

But you're well protect by all your wounds,
Used to lick them all in a crowded room,
through an act of God you lost your faith,
But you lost your love in a different way

Take my love and take my hand,
Don't push me away,
coz I acted so thoughtlessly,
I see in your face,
That the love you once gave,
is fading away,
silent, into obscurity,
So kiss me again,
and please let me in,
Coz the sun, goes cold, so slow
and my head,
Is filled with regret,
for a love, I'll never known
