Jenny and I just wrapped up another one. This one will be available wherever digital music is sold within a few days, but I wanted to share here first. Thanks to everyone who commented on our previous songs. The feedback was very helpful and put to use.

ALONE I LIE

Music: John Evans
Lyrics & Vocals: Jenny Stokes


Sleep
Is my only escape
Wait for oblivion

Time
Sucks out life as I lie
Alone now
I am friendless

Match alight
I lit the fire
Burning bridges

Bit the hand
That leads to home
To feed my weakness

Take, take
For me alone
Alone I’m lyin’

Cut the cord
The weak will fall
Alone I’m dyin’

Chorus:
Faults overtake me
No strength to contain them
My dreams for a good life
No will to attain them
No consequence heeded
I’m friendless and nameless
Alone I lie
In this
Bed of my making

Broken friendships and endless lies
Walked away with no goodbyes
Alone I’m dyin’

Chorus:
Faults overtake me
No strength to contain them
My dreams for a good life
No will to attain them
No consequence heeded
I’m friendless and nameless
Alone I lie
In this
Bed of my making

Reap the harvest of every vice
Piper calls, I paid the price
Alone I’m lying

Alone I lie
Alone I lie
Alone I lie

Very Evanescence !!

Loving the sound on this one. The production is solid and I love the build up (I’m a sucker for a good build up!!).

My only wish would be to bring the vocals up a bit and a little less reverb. Would love to hear them more clearly and really front and center.

Hi Micky. Thanks. I’m thrilled with the comparison. Evanescence is fantastic. It’d be really neat if we could come even half way to achieving their sound. Thanks for the feedback.

I think you’re very close to achieving their sound!! Of course, with your own original twist :) I love Evanescence and think they are fantastic so I definitely don’t make that comparison lightly. Really, really great work!!
