    "Holdin' On"

    It’s early in the morning
    Another day, another restless night
    I sip my cup of coffee
    It’s okay, it’s gonna be alright
    Sometimes times can get hard
    Little things will drive you up a wall
    I’m walking on a tightrope
    And it’s a long, long way to fall

    It’s spiritual suicide
    For you to worry through the night

    I keep "Holdin' On" forever
    Hangin’ here on a wing and a prayer
    I keep "Holdin' On" whenever
    It seems nobody cares

    I really need to remember
    Where I’m from and how far I’ve come
    I fought my share of battles
    Some I’ve lost, some I’ve won
    This world can be so cold
    A bitter pill you try to swallow whole
    I act like it doesn’t affect me
    But you know, sometimes it slows my roll

    Some things will never change
    I’ll just ride this tidal wave

    I keep "Holdin' On" forever
    Hangin’ here on a wing and a prayer
    I keep "Holdin' On" whenever
    It seems nobody cares
    I keep "Holdin' On" forever
    Hangin’ here at the foot of the cross
    I keep "Holdin' On" whenever
    It seems all hope is lost

    (Musical Bridge)

    I keep "Holdin' On" forever
    Hangin’ here on a wing and a prayer
    I keep "Holdin' On" whenever
    It seems nobody cares
    I keep "Holdin' On" forever
    Hangin’ here at the foot of the cross
    I keep "Holdin' On" whenever
    It seems all hope is lost

    I keep "Holdin' On" forever
    I keep "Holdin' On" forever
    I keep "Holdin' On" forever
    I keep "Holdin' On" whenever……

    Hey Steve,

    Nice to see you got the ink fixed.

    Mix and arrangement are nice. Nice radio friendly song (whatever that means) . Instrumentation is perfect for this kind of song. You got enough ear candy going on in the each speaker to keep it interesting throughout, nice guitar sound too.

    Not much I can offer as far as advice goes. Sounds finished to me. I'm not really up on this style of music, it's not something I listen to, to be honest. But it's very well done.

    Has a country flavor in it, which I really like! You know, some people find it odd that I like folk and country music. Maybe because I always wear black T-Shirts full of bloody entrails, dead bodies, and entropic logo designs. Anyway, I love such acts as Garth Brooks, Jolie Holland, The Merrits, Al Stewart, to name some of them. Listening to diverse kinds of music challenges me to think, allows my mind to experiment with different song structures, a variety of instruments, and makes me a better (metal) musician.

    Anyway, I sort of branched off. I really like your tune and couldn't agree more with RAMI. Song is finished.

    I would have done that too, but nothing I hate more than a spammer. If someone doesn't have the decency to come back and respond to people that listened to his tune, I say fuck him. Especially since he had the nerve to PM me to tell me his link is working after I pointed it wasn't. Sends me a private message so I would listen to his tune but can't come back and respond to people that took the time to listen. Like I said, fuck him. On top of that, I hate this kind of "music", but thought I'd let him know it was well done anyway. Did I mention, fuck him?

    Well, just to be fair, the guy used to give critiques to others around here in the recent past. Not yours however. Maybe he just got busy. Maybe he had a loss in his life. Who knows...

    Not sure I would 'fuck him' for it.

    Just saying RAMI....

    You seem a bit grouchy lately. You may need to kazoo..

    Maybe. But he was around posting well after he posted this.

    It's cool. I'm not saying anyone else should "fuck him". But when someone goes out of their way to send me a private message to get me to listen to their tune, but doesn't have the decency to come back into his own thread after I oblige him, I definitely say "fuck him". You're all free to do what you want, not asking anyone to do what I say.

    Just sayin Jimmy.....

    Doesn't really matter. Even though it's well done, if I had to listen to this kind of "music" while doing it, I'd lose my hard on anyway.
