Lyrics
I've been lookin' for serenity
in eyes that can't bring me peace
Never thought you'd be the end of me
But, baby you're pushing me to the brink


Chorus:
This ring on my finger;
nothing more than illusion
When Vows lie, love starts to linger
The sacred bond begins to loosen
Love, sickly and pale,
stricken down by the deepest nail


V2:
Night after night, playing these games,
only fuels the Wrecking Ball
Why even hide her toxic name
from my ears each time she calls?


Chorus:
This ring on my finger;
nothing more than illusion
When Vows lie, love starts to linger
The sacred bond begins to loosen


Bridge:
Can't keep justifying,
and stay with you while my spirit's dying
Been reaching for the dawn that's been swept away,
And covered the new one in shades of gray


V3:
Can't hide what you did
for the sake of the kids
anymore
Some mistakes can be forgiven
But some can't be ignored
Oh!

Strong narrative in the lyrics. Emotive vocal. Your multi-instrumental skills are on display, too, Freddy - great sound you're achieving. I don't think it needs a third chorus- it's a strong finish where it it.

i like the allusions in the lyrics. good use of metaphores. i agree the ending is more powerful as is, a third chorus would sound more "expected" and would lessen the effect, i feel.

Classy opening. Emotional vocal. Quality arrangement and musicianship, Freddy. I agree with Philip and Sam. No further chorus required. The last lyric line is a good place to outro. Congrats to all. Regards, Peter.
