Demo: 

Liner Notes: 

This one just flowed right out. Funny how it happens like that sometimes and other times it takes a lot of graft.

Decided to keep this one simple with just guitar and vocal - let the song speak for itself.

Lyrics: 

Tired, I’m so tired
Of waiting for my absolution
Praying for a moment that may never come

Doubts, there are doubts
I’m living under an illusion
Should I just accept that all my hope has gone

So I hold on to a belief
A fragile promise of relief

Dark it’s so dark
Waiting for the clouds to open
Waiting for the light to settle on your face

Smile? How can I smile?
When I know your heart is broken
And nothing’s left inside it’s just an empty space

So how can I deserve your love
Maybe forgiveness is enough

Tired, I’m so tired
Of waiting for my absolution
Praying for a moment that may never come



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

It's not every day that I'm moved by a 50/90 song. Lovely work sir. Such wistful tenderness. Interesting verses as well, largely unrhymed but the repeated words give it a sense of structure. *takes notes* Love the melody too.

The economy of the performance and the charming melody highlight the beauty of the words. Another winner, Tim!

Lovely, should and could be on the radio. Your voice is very good and fits the ambiance of the song.

OH TIM JUST STUNNING

the combination of what you do here
musically, lyrically, vocally, is awsome
such a pleasure to listen to
everything comes together perfectly

WONDERFUL MASTER CLASS

Beautiful guitar from the start. The vocal didn't disappoint. Melancholy but deliciously infused with hope. Give rose
