When people disappoint you, you have to sing about it.

This is from my upcoming double-album set, but I recommend you check out my website, www.paulfidalgo.com and my first CD, "Paul is Making Me Nervous", available at cdbaby.com and iTunes.

a 3D landscape of internal dialogue
Delicate, emotional, with thoughtful lyrics and a varied vocal
pallate. This has a hushed preciousness to it, and a pop
musical theatre feel, both in the writing and your vocal
quality. Very solid writing and arranging, nice pacing
changes and changes in voice placements, giving the audio a
3D feel. Even tho you are using a vocal pitch fixer/shifter in
places, there are still 2-3 pitch problems in the untouched
phrases in the latter choruses. Still, a really wonderful track.
(Please post your lyrics, it makes it much easier to story the
tune and meaning. Some interesting words, like a choice
between god and holy, I'd like to look at as text)

Your Own Words lyrics
The site wouldn't let me edit the content here, so here's
the lyrics to the track:

%u201CYour Own Words%u201D (by Paul Fidalgo, 2005)

Where were you at the forming of this league of nations?
Did the thought of sharing sovereignty make you mad
enough to kill?
What%u2019d you do when the choice was between good and
glory?
Could you make yourself a better person by the sheer
force of your will?

What%u2019s the last thing you remember?
I want you to live by your own words

There%u2019s your friend, laying injured by the ether
That was your big chance to blow the pain away
But a circle doesn%u2019t have the room for more than one self
at its center
Once the callus formed there was nothing more to say

What%u2019s the worst that could have happened?
I want you to live by your own words

It%u2019s one more thing we have to endure to become human
And the excess of the impulse makes you the genius that
you are
But it%u2019s up to us to decide what to do with what we%u2019re
given
Will you use it to fuel your lantern or to give birth to a
star?

I know you only fight this battle
Because your heart%u2019s more tender than your hand
Please exceed my expectations
I want you to live by your own words

Just once

Good stuff
Excellent voice and a very cool backing groove. It has a
good beat and I can dance to it.

I'm not usually a fan of these effects on the voice I think
it's done pretty well and in an interesting fashion. There
was one section (it's one more thing we have to endure...)
I feel didn't need the effects at all... you have very pure
voice. That's more a personal preference than anything.

Very good song and very well produced!

Poptastic!
This is such a marvelous production, I really like the vocal
effects. All in all a really well put together tune,
performance and production are top notch

Yeah
Fine track here.
I kinda like the vocal effects on thie beginning, nicely
arranged as well. Wasn't to sure about the mix of effected
vox and then suddenly into normal vocals, they seemed a
little thin compared to the rest. but then thats such a
picky thing really. I thought there were also a couple of
timing issues in a couple of spots between the vocals and
percussion ( midway as the synth gets louder)
Nice pro sound you got going, congrats on the cd baby
thing and getting on itunes..
cool
