(whoops, forgot to link Nate's song - http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/38732)
(also whoops, I didn't realize the lyrics were by Nate AND @kahlo2013. Updated the credits)

Welp...after much procrastination and intimidation, I finally finished this morph challenge.
I pretty much just said screw it and did in a couple hours, after deciding nothing I could do could maintain @nateger's awesome sound.
I'm not a guitar player nor a singer, so keeping his vibe was out the window.
So I just did me.
I ended up with a more r&b-ish vibe in the verses, and then straight up 80s freestyle during the chorus...and something...else for the breakdown/vamp.
I did keep the lyrics and overall key of nate's. But that's where the 50% ends lol
Not making any apologies. This is my style and what I wanted to do during this game, so yeah.

Lyrics: 

Lyrics written by [@nateger] and [@kahlo2013]
(splittybooms had NOTHING to do with these awesome lyrics!)

Light after the dawn
Reveals something wrong
I toss off the blankets
And think of what I’ve done
I wish I hit the snooze alarm
When I held you in my arms
Now the morning birds’ singing
Remind me that you’re gone
Chorus
There’s a rhyme, there’s a reason
For you leaving
If I knew what I know now
Would we be speaking?
Your absence invites me
To time with myself
To become the man you deserve
And not someone else
V2
Take my morning brew
Sigh a breath and wait to cool
I hope this bitter drink
Takes my mind off of you
It was written on the wall
Words I can’t recall
If only I had looked
We would be so far
C
There’s a rhyme, there’s a reason
For you leaving
If I knew what I know now
Would we be speaking?
Your absence invites me
To time with myself
To become the man you deserve
And not someone else
B
chase away the tears
chase away the years
chase away the fears
I’m running
C
There’s a rhyme, there’s a reason
For you leaving
If I knew what I know now
Would we be speaking?
Your absence invites me
To time with myself
To become the man you deserve
And not someone else

I love this! What cool, dancy production. It's wild to hear lyrics I half wrote in a totally different context. I know you were feeling intimated and I'm glad you followed through and shared this. I'm bopping my head. You made the bridge totally badass

Just doing you sounds fantastic! This is a wonderful morph... love the direction you took it and how you put the different sections together seamlessly. Love this!

Y'know, you've added a new dimension to your entire production game now that you've included your vocals. It's a win for you as producer/artist and we as listeners. You've added your own touch to this track and it works in aces, dude. Now I'm gonna head over to @nateger.

Keep doing what you love!
