I don't think I've seen your posts on the forum much yet! In-case I haven't welcomed you yet, welcome Belladonna! I am really curious about the story behind this one, if there is one, as the lyrics are quite poetic.

Thanks for the share!

Dear Ms. "Belladonna"...

If that was your voice I heard singing the lyrics to "Playin' With Fool's Gold", I would say it was the best thing about the song, aside from the beautifully introspective lyrics.

Such densely-woven poetry needs a clear, unaffectedly emotive singing voice to draw a listener into its layered mysteries. Your voice possesses those qualities.

In my opinion, the best written lyrics always have a "beating heart", a line or two of words that capture, crystallize and project the essence, or the truth of what the lyrics "are about":

"A woman not strong enough to rise above
A man whose heart’s devoid of love"


That surely could be the clearest description of what the essential problem is in male/female relationships, generally speaking.

Some very cool writing here!! Great images-very moving. I would try to have a bit more of a motif in the verse music. Also, I think the vocal has too much reverb-a little soupy. Nicely done song!! Take care. Greg
