Description
Found Kassias "Sit Down" and loved it, so thought id give it a go at creating a song out of it.
I would like to think of this as an OPEN COLLAB, as i feel it may sound better with more to it, (strings maybe? etc) so if you would like to add to it then please message me.

The vocals, lyrics and editing of "Sit Down" (Piano track) were all done by me.

I hope you enjoy listening.

Lyrics
Sit down
Stay strong
Time can heal us
But no one
can tear us apart
And if they try i will die for you
Well i know we've been walking on ice for too long
it shows that we can make it through this storm
And if they try to stop us i'll die for you

We can make it i know, stay strong
we're not far from the end, hold on
we'll show them all that we're meant to be
Sit down
Just sit down
sit down

Instrumental

We can make it i know, stay strong
we're not far from the end, hold on
we'll show them all we're meant to be
Just sit down
sit down
and let the world, take you away.

Good work Niall...
Nice work coming up with lyrics and a melody line across Kassia's great piano piece. I would lower the vocals ever so slightly, and add a teeny more room reverb to help it blend with the piano. And you could add your own sung harmonies to this instead of strings... just try adding little vocal harmonizing here and there, I bet it would work!
ttfn,
Drakonis

Thank you for your advice Eduard.
I think it could be a good idea doing my own sung harmonies, never thought of that :)
Cheers.

Emotion
The lyrics are exceptional, sad but with hope.
This song could go a long way with colabs.
Enjoyed the piano playing too . . .

Thank you for your comment scaustrita.
Yeah i was going for that with the lyrics, like no matter how hard a situation is, there is always some hope there.

I agree, i would love to have someone add to this, not that i think it sounds bad now, but just to say what could be done maybe...
even though it may not sound as heartfelt and real if it had too much added to it but who knows...?

This is a very sweet and heartfelt song you've created here. The lyrics are lovely and your performance is full of emotion. There are a few spots where the timing and pitch seem to be a little off, but those things can add to the intimate feel of the piece. It all depends on what sort of sound you wanted to convey. Thanks for taking "Sit Down" to a whole new place.

Very cool. I felt the emotional connection of your lyrics and vocals with Kassias music. I especially like how you layered the last section of the song. Awesome job.
