Liner Notes: 

I liked the lyrics as i was doing them. Music was a bit slow coming! thought it needed to be a bit of a lament. Ive got so many songs almost finished gotta decide whether to get them all out and tidy up later, or just finish a few properly.

Its a favourite as i enjoyed doing this one! i felt the emotion!

Lyrics: 

Shadows of my Mind

V1 I see you in the Shadows of my mind
all those memories left behind
I still feel your presence near
Your sincerity like thin veneer

V2 What now is weak was once strong
Don’t know where it all went wrong
Maybe maybe i misconstrued
Or maybe maybe i just got fooled

C Now I am alone again
All our plans gone down the drain
future seen through a hazy mist
Like some dull Bronte romanticist

V3 Trying to ignore this voice inside
All my inner fears it pried
Knows that I’m not over you
Seeking another avenue

V4 My mind it twists many ways
Trying to find a way out the maze
Leave me now get outta my head
I need a new path to tread

C Now I am alone again
All our plans gone down the drain
future seen through a hazy mist
Like some dul Bronte romanticist

V1 I see you in the Shadows of my mind
all those memories left behind
I still feel your presence near
Your sincerity like thin veneer

B Like some lamentous Heathcliff
Waving a surrendering handkerchief
Trying to move on
Letting go of alls is gone

C Now I am alone again
All our plans gone down the drain
future seen through a hazy mist
Like some dull Bronte romanticist
Repeat last 2 lines

Cool chord progression and melody with those little descending notes at the end of the lines of the verse. Great chorus that conveys a sadness and toughness. The sense of loss is expressed well with the lyric and music.

i can feel the emotion in your voice, ,most laments dont have this kind of intensity, nice rhyme of mist with romanticist.

Nice track. I like the hazy, shadowy images in the lyrics . Good melody – the run downs at the end of the lines in the verses are particularly catchy – and the chorus is strong too. I like your delivery of “dull Bronte romanticist”, and the rhyme there, too.

That Bronte line is great--and the delivery is awesome, too. I love the sound of this right from the beginning--the organ, subtle guitar, and cool rhythm. I'm listening again. I keep coming back to that Bronte line. There's something about the rhythm and melody of it that makes it super compelling. Thin veneer of sincerity--that's a nice one, too!

I like the Bronte references too. This definitely has a lament vibe. It also has folk ballad feel to it. I like the chorus going into major, and the gravel you put into your voice on certain lines.
