There are lots of strong images in the lyrics here which come at the listener close together- I like that as the song rewards repeat listenings.
The cello fits perfectly giving a hypnotic feel.
I did find myself hearing the chorus with harmonies or going up an octave last time through...just my preference for a soaring conclusion.
Another very good song.

Very nice. The imagery would well suit a subtle video.

We enjoyed it all -- the write, the vocal and the production.

Robert, thanks for your constructive comments. Harmony vocals could be a great option.

A very pretty song that says a lot simplistically. You chose a nice chord progression that presents the mood of the lyrics nice.

I think it would have been interesting in the arrangement to have a bit more movement between the instruments such as bringing them in and out and bringing one or the other more forward in the mix in different sections. It would have sublimely presented the feeling musically of looking for the wrong thing as well as helping keep the listener engaged and not tire from the repetition.

Enjoyed this a lot.

Thanks, Charlie. I think your mix idea is intriguing. I will be remixing songs next year and will have your notes to consult.

Greg, thanks again. To be honest, I wasn't sure about the song or the arrangement. I have a lot of self-doubt...
