I recognize your music (primarily because of the vocals), not sure if I have heard this tune before or not. Either way the audio quality is quite good, guitar playing & melodies are rather good. Vocal melodies & actual singing are very good. Nice tune! Please review my music at this link:

It all feels like something I've heard many times before, like it would have been on the radio all the time about five years ago, and then forgotten soon after.

That said, it seems pretty well mixed, maybe the vocal quality is a tad too low to be radio quality, but otherwise this is a pretty solid track. The mood is perfect for a summer afternoon lying in tall grass.

I like it. Maybe a bit safe for my taste (stays in the musical pocket, so to speak). I thought the part that ends the verse, before the chorus ("why...something or other") was where the song lost steam. I was ready for a chorus / chord change BEFORE that section, but then that section was like another partial verse (in terms of the same chord progression, if my ear is right). I'd ditch that or make it more different from the verse.
