Demo: 

Liner Notes: 

A very quick write with just acoustic guitar, vocals and a splash of chimey bells

Lyrics: 

No more can I pretend that you love me anymore
No more can I fool myself that you’ll walk back through that door

Your words still ring
Somewhere within
I hear your voice
And now I know
That to let go
Is my only choice

I can’t lie to myself only sorrow comes with that
I’ve lived with hope too long it’s a convenient trap

The pain I feel
Lies unrevealed
Inside my heart
And I’ll accept
This loneliness
Without remark



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

Beautiful. Very different but great melody. When i was younger i used to listen to a guy called clifford t ward. His style like this was a comfort voice.

So lovely and cinematic, even in its simplicity. The production feels finished, but still very honest and raw, which is awfully hard to do. Really nice work.

Really nice finger-style guitar work and very pretty song. Honest, simple and powerful vocal. Nice job.

Really great acoustic tune, a nice picking pattern and melody. The bells are a subtle touch that enhance the mood of the track. Everyone sounds really good, this is another enjoyable tune!

Lovely fingerpicking--a very bittersweet, timeless-sounding song. Really like the chord progressions here, too!

That's just wonderful, Tim. The lyrics leave you wanting more, which is always fine, and that finger-picking rhythm is so welcoming, I would enjoy this even if you recited words from the dictionary.

Gorgeous chord sequence, you never really know where they're going to go - ambiguous major/minor going on which matches your theme of hope, and living with it for too long.

Brilliant arrangement - voice and guitar carry the song and the bell sound does not overpower.
