Lyrics: 

V1
hours of rage
simmer
bursts of violence
erupt

nights of regrets
linger
weeks of silence
add up

PC
and we are
right back
to the time...
we vowed never to
go to again......

C
accidents happen
mistakes are made
problems grow
excuses cascade
promises fade...
fade away....
at times like this

V2
moments of lust
simmer
bursts of passion
erupt

nights of desire
linger
weeks of indiscretion
add up

PC
and we are
right back
to the time....
we vowed never to
go to again......

C
accidents happen
mistakes are made
problems grow
excuses cascade
promises fade...
fade away....

Great sound, works well one voice one guitar, choice of rhythmic modulations vocally with the guitar. Great demo.

It's such as great sounding musication, I'll risk a demo technical comment which I know we are not supposed to do:
-- When you're recording, and see the meter ? hit the "red" allot, when recording, dial down the vol input "somewhere", Smile like, maybe 4db, you'll still get a nice saturation without the peak buzz. On most folks recording equipment there may be several "Vol" inputs. Again, it's such a very nice track, otherwise would not mention it; and do assume allot; hope you don't mind. You sound like you are close to the mic (a good thing), so won't risk "room noise/sound", to much. The guitar, voice was nicely balanced.

The older I get the more I realise how often situations and behaviours repeat; sometimes it's hard to learn the lessons we need to learn. Powerful stuff.

And - shameless plug - I smiled at the "Mistakes were made" line. I wrote "Terminology" as a response to how passive voice is used to disconnect responsibility from consequiences: http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/39227

Really nice collab--great lyrics and a very nice arrangement/vocal. I have to agree with ustaknow that it seems to have been recorded a bit "hot", so you've got that distortion. Are you using a DAW or, like, recording into a phone?

Yes nice collab. The lyric was a very good one. The delivery creates an urgency really well! Nice

I was thinking how Lizzy at times has her way of not using too much words in a lyric sheet and it's actually not surprising this works for Sam, who is singing this lyrics her own way, making them her own. The PC is so good. I like the emotion I hear in the vocals. It's grabbing me.

Yeah, another great one here.
Much longer than your usual tunes, which is nice to hear.
Nice vocal delivery of these wonderful lyrics.
I'm liking your confident guitar attack.
As I said, another great one.
I always look forward to hearing your tracks.

I like how this just seems to simmer and build as it goes, creating more and more tension. Really works for the lyrics. Bridge missing is not a problem. Works perfectly without it.
