Lyrics
I am a child
Afraid of my shadow
Even though I know nothings out there.
A fly on the wall
In the back of my brain now
Just overhears doubts
And lines from my favorite songs

Listen outside to the sounds of the city
All of them climb a mountain like you
Still every time I feel like I'm choking
A crowd in the night just waits for its day in the sun.

The weight of the worlds on your shoulders
And nobody's coming for help
The weight of the worlds on your shoulders
And no one can save you but yourself.

Nobody's lives are deeper than their eyes go
Everyone's got more time on their hands than me
Always on point and smilin through the weakness
Characters cut from lines in my favorite songs

Work in progress?
Personal lyrics? Naw. Just write what yer given and leave it alone.
The seventh chords are effective here. The production is less quirky than what I recall as your standard, which is the direction ya seem to be heading. The more commercial and tighter production might not have helped the ambience of this tune.
As usual, enjoyed this work, you always provide a great listen. Why you don't have a larger audience here at MJ is a travesty. Thank you for sharing your tunes with us.

Thanks
Yeah. I kept this production real fragile and vulnerable. I thought it served the song better. Thanks for the kind words.

Beautiful tone to the guitar. Gentle rhythm. Evocative vocal. Warm arrangement. Excellent work!

Lyrics...
Not sure I understand them. ... Music: what a solid mix, beautifully played, and your voice (with added harmonies) is wonderful. I really enjoyed the production of this simple song, the mix volumes all complimentary (complementary) to your vocal. Much enjoyed.
