Liner Notes: 

I've been working on a final group of 4 tracks for hours now.... I've 1 more left with just a teeny few final tweaks before the sun sets on this 5090. 30ish minutes. That'll take me to 31 done and dusted from the WK100 project (see my profile notes) YAY! Thanks for all the support, input, and encouragement.

This one again from FAWM 2014 and got it's final (?) wax and polish this moment!

Looking for any mix notes, is there's something I've missed here? Help me put this one to bed. Many thanks.

All listens (and from the past few days) will be returned within 24 hours of close of 5090! Looking forward to hearing something other than my own voice! Smile

I hope you enjoy.

Hugs, Wolf.

Lyrics: 

She Won't Cry For Me by Wolf Kier wk025
Copyright 2014 2021 Wolf Kier

She never cried for no one so she won't cry for me
She'll wear that crown of pride until they part the seven seas
She never cried for no one, so she won't cry for me
And the bleeding heart of Jesus, this time won't set me free

No, no, no, this time won't set me free
No, no, no, this time won't set me free

no, no, no

She never cried for no one, so she won't cry for me
So I'll never get her back, that girl she got no sweet pity, no
She got no sweet pity, she got no no no no no no...

No, no, no, this time won't set me free
No, no, no, this time won't set me free

no, no, no

I'll dig myself a grave in the side of this old hill
And bury myself in it with a bottle and a will
I'll leave all I ever owned to the children that I raised
But if the devil knows my name, then Charlotte she's to blame

She never cries,
she won't cry for me

Solo

No, no, no, this time won't set me free
No, no, no, this time won't set me free

Please God, save my soul, I've dug myself a great big hole
Please God, save my soul, I've buried myself in it.
Please God, save my soul, I've dug myself a great big hole
Please God, save my soul, I've buried myself in it.

in it, in it.

This is GREAT!! The gravelly voice and haunting guitars and that greasy bass line. It is all so yummy!

Another awesome one! Been reading about narcissistic women and how they cry for no one - except for a dramatic display of victimization as one of the games they play. This song reminds me of that. Really cool lyrics!

The bass is different from what I used to hear, but I think it's really cool. Slick, haunting song! The vocals sit well in the mix, but it could be a little better? Maybe the guitar at times isn't present enough, like that instant at 2.23, when other parts in the mix 'fight for the most attention'.

This has an ominous vibe that is catchy and very engaging. I like the title and theme of the lyric because these people really exist! "No sweet pity"...."cry for me" rhymes are a lot of fun! Enjoyed the deep, dramatic vocals too!

Listening on your bandcamp I don't know if you turned the gutiar up any from ferry's comment or not, but I'd agree, it could be louder(but I'll always say that about some slick guitar playing :D) I'm thinking more in the beginning, some of those riffs could feature a little more in a call/response with the lyric a bit more, not necessarily an entire track level bump, just before/after some lyrics, would really lean into the blues feel this gives............ About the level it starts hitting around 1:50ish
