Hi Folks….Fresh off the tape…got a new recording…...please feel free to share your thoughts, and first impressions are most welcome. Just a 1+1, and am hoping to get a much bigger and more lively production of this.
Thanks, in advance!

You can take the best from me
While you’re digging a hole into my heart
You can hurt my pride, shake my will
You can take it all away from me
But, I ain’t no angel
I’m of flesh and blood, you’ll see
I have not walked the road less traveled
And there’s no halo’s light on me

Born to lose the soul in me
To every painted-up face selling romance
So, if you take your shot, shoot to kill
‘Cause you may not get another chance
‘Cause, I ain’t no angel
I’m of flesh and blood, you’ll see
I have not walked the road less traveled
And there’s no halo’s light on me

You can justify any thing you do
You can cover your tracks with your pretty lies
But, there’s just one thing you need to hear
Before you spit in these snake eyes
I ain’t no angel
I’m of flesh and blood, you’ll see
I have not walked the road less traveled
And there’s no halo’s light on me

Nice. I’m a fan, as you know. Love the line about spitting in the snake eyes. When you do the bigger production, are you planning to up the tempo just a little?

Hey there Gavin….thanks for commenting!!! I always appreciate it ;-)
Yes! the tempo is faster and the melody is a bit altered.
Thanks, again, for stopping by!

“Born to lose the soul in me

I hate to say it, since this line could possibly sum up your inspiration to begin with lol…....
but you could easily do away with it and the song would become much more ‘universal’

Damnation stirrs the soul in me
And calls all my demons to the dance
