This another one I wrote that took a while to grow on me.
Really didn't like it at first.

Please feel free to comment.

All goes down the drain.

I can seem to get you offa my mind.
You have a way of making me waste my time.

Chorus
I feel light showers that quench my thirst.
But all goes down the drain.

I'm not sure how I should feel,
But its enough to send a man insane.

When you near you make my heart jump around.
I'm struck deaf and struggle to hear a sound.

Ive got my concerns about my mental health
and things you make me do.

You got me walking on the tightest rope.
And got mt feeling so blue.

Fill

Chorus
I feel light showers that quench my thirst.
But all goes down the drain.

I'm not sure how I should feel,
But its enough to send a nan insane.

Stay away and leave well enough alone.
Stop your texting don't even pick up the phone.

I went to the postman to change my address.
And hide away from you.

next thing I know your knocking at my door.
What else can a desperate man do?

"Change my address" seems a bit rushed, and the guitar solo sounds like it's coming from another room.

Other than that, it's all good. Nice listen, thanks for posting!

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

I think it's a good song. Everything works well except as David pointed out, the solo needs to come up in the mix. Enjoyed it.

Gossip Magazine headline reads "Elvis has been sited on the PGMusic site"!

Except for the lead lines you really did a great job on this one.

The lead should be louder.

Hi David I agree with the above.
I have found when you right a song you still have to learn it to get it right.
I agree with the rushing and and the solo sounding in the next room.
