Liner Notes: 

First full day of highschool for F#1.

Just sitting on the brown couch feeling old.

vocal, guitar, one take: me

(apologies to anyone new around here who hasn't heard me sing like this. I know it's a bit offputting at first)


meteorological summer is over
the leaves are starting to turn
I can't believe how green it is
after the summer just burned

gotta mow the lawn again
whether I want to or not
the rains of this past August
almost make up for all the hot

thoughts on a September morning

first full day of highschool
for my not-so-little girl
hard to believe she's growing up
a big change in my world

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

Is this really you? It shocked me-but I love it! I want to hear more like it!

Well done. Hard to get up there with a run, to hit it first note is very impressive! Very cool.

That falsetto is amazing and suits the song so well. Love the bluesy feel. The lyrics are reflective and simple, and you deliver them with precision. I like this a lot!

I agree that the falsetto suits you. I felt emotional listening to this. My baby girl will be a teenager next week. I find it hard to believe she is growing up! You capture that feeling so well.

Wow Alex! That is some impressive falsetto singing there...I knew you had a great range but to hear you sustain that pitch over the course of this lovely song was so good! I replied to your suggestion about a collab btw...just let me know...

Not offputting at all. I've heard you get up in your range before, but not for a full song like this, usually when just doing some harmonizing. Really amazing! Such a great and thoughtful little bluesy riff and write too. Great song! This hits me too, I'll be celebrating my one and onlys 18th in a few days. Bittersweet, I'm feeling ancient in my very early 40's, but no longer have to deal with her mother Biggrin
