How long did it take you to write the lyrics and the song overall?

I'm a rock and metal fanboy, but still this is pleasant for my ears. Also nice voice you got there, sounds like from the 80's.

Thanks man. I haven't heard of Cothran before, but I'm definitely gonna give him a listen now. EDIT: Oh, the Elvish Depressedly fella, I've never listened to that band actually. EDIT EDIT: I have listened to Coma Cinema though, love them (listened to Stoned Alone and Blue Suicide shitloads years ago). I wouldn't have said it's a conscious decision, but I guess I have been influenced by his music.

Just made it available for free download . I was meant to do that when I uploaded it but I overlooked it. Whoops!

Cheers. It was a really quick process, 25 minutes probably. It took me like a minute to find that a suitable chord progression for the mood I was feeling. Then I recorded myself making unintelligible melodic noises over the top of the chord progression and I eventually had the vocal melody sorted (took 5 minutes). Then (the hardest part probably), was the lyric writing itself. It's a bit of a bitch to match my unintelligible melodic noises with actual words, and it's even more of a bitch to match them with words that are relevant to the narrative I was trying to construct. So that took a good 20 minutes.

But yeah, as I said, this was a really quick song. Usually I get bogged down at the lyric writing stage for ages. I can sort out melodies and progressions reasonably quick, but I get bogged down, frustrated and sometimes uninterested in writing the lyrics. Been working on that recently, though.

Probably more detail than you care for but oh well, someone might find it interesting. Thanks for your feedback man.
