Secret Town

By David Snyder

V1

I hear the rain coming down
in your secret town
I see the writing on the wall
In your secret town
I can almost see it all
In your secret town
I think the night’s about to fall
In your secret town

Here comes the young girl
Looking for a lover
Who’ll discover everything
Here comes the highway
Just like a tinderbox
To make your mind go up in flames

CH

A minor miracle
The grace to make a choice
In these secret games
A minor miracle
The grace to make a choice

V2

Here comes the dark horse
Painted like the white horse
In your secret town
Here comes the stardust competing with the dirt and rust
In your secret town
Here comes the rebel
He thinks he’s only human
He’d give his heart to anything
Just tender mercies
These loves among the ruins
Don’t you think I feel the same

CH

A minor circumstance
The chance to place a bet
On these secret games
A minor miracle
The chance to place a bet
On your secret name

Outro

Do you want me to spell it out for you
Do you want me to spell it put for you
I love your secret town, I love your secret town
I want to walk with you, hand in hand in hand in hand
In your Secret Town

David,
Love the layered ringing guitars and your vocal is really expressive.
You are back from the space of prog. rock with another very good mainstream song!
And of course there are some lyrical nuggets:

Here comes the highway
Just like a tinderbox
To make your mind go up in flames

Hi David, Really loved Secret Town.

It had a kind of "All These Things That I Have Done" vibe to it which is one of my favourite songs of all time. Your vocal really built towards the end and complemented the song perfectly.

Nice one!

Very distinctive vocals! Love this one.

And that lead guitar you added to the Right Channel is really nice.

Hi David.

I don't know how I missed this one - it's a great rocker and flows so well.

A real foot tapper and nice listen.

Cheers.
Mike.

Nice mix and tune for sure. The vocals are right up front where they need to be. I do think you ease off on the vocal effects a bit. But that is a personal opinion and no biggie. Bruce would like to do this one!

Hmmm, if you eased off on the effects, you might need to do a doubled track vocal to add back in any lost "fatness".
