Won't you come with me?
She said "Babe, we aren't gonna make it through."

And now I'm alone
In this life
In this time and place

And now I'm gone
For this time
Now I'm losing this race

So now I'm leaving
They said "He can't help but be curious, aren't you?"
and now I'm feeling
All these things that mankind makes us do

And now I'm sick
In my brain
In my state of mind

And now I'm lost
Away
I'm losing this time

I want to be something better
Than myself, than myself oh

I want to do something bigger
Than just wealth, that just wealth oh

And now I'm fading
I'm doing all I can to survive
And now I'm saying
that maybe no one really makes it out alive
So of course when I'm looking into buying a new guitar my only acoustic guitars nut breaks (the high E slides out). Can anyone recommend a new nut?

I'm also considering buying used online from guitar center. I trust guitar center to sell me a quality used product but should I? As long as it has a 4/5 star rating? The price is considerably lower on a $700 guitar (takamine EG523SC?).

Also any other considerably lower priced guitars on there that you'd recommend? I really like the takamines and Alvarez's but would be willing to take any advice.
So this song is about an idea I had and a scene in Hamlet we read today. It's about a guy who loves this girl and she hurts him (not too maliciously) and he just comes back later and tears her apart. This happens in Hamlet and he tells the girl that he never loved her and was just using her and just kinda of went off and was crazy to her.

I'll do my best, to get you out of this hell
You don't need to face these fears of mine
I'm busy drawing my crooked line

Hold Steady, I'll try to make it fast
I'd do it all, to make it last
I always thought there'd be light here
I'm busy looking straight through the mirror

Take it all, I feel fine
Take it out on me, I feel it ever time
I deserve every single spite
I think it's over but I don't feel right

Take it all, take it with your pills
I think it's gone but it won't remain still
I try to crush it with this hand of mine
In my defeat, I'll remain blind

I'll leave you scarred every day
I'll leave you broken for someone else to save
It doesn't matter, how cruel
No one else will ever fix you

Protect your head, laying on the floor
I'll move on once I get bored
you left me laying in the broken glass
my only sanctuary is this brass

You left me scarred every day
You left me broken with no one else to save
It doesn't matter, how obscene
No one else will ever try to fix me

Take cover, someday you'll break free
I'll be waiting until it happens to me
I'll do my best to get out of here alive
I'm busy drawing my crooked line
Into The Wild sound track was amazing as was the movie.
I'm looking for a new acoustic and always loved acoustics with closed sound holes. But I don't know what they are called. I like them because they had a warm, deep, vibrating tone. There was either a black Yamaha or an ibanez at my local shop that sounded amazing but they moved and don't carry guitars any more.

I'm not bent on a guitar without a sound hole or without a basic one but if you could help me out by giving me the term for those or pointing me in the direction of a guitar with great tone like that?

Thanks
I really like it. It seems really simple and kind of made me "content". I REALLY like the 2 middle verses. It just seems to flow better. Good job on this. I also like the term "half alive state"
Hey there. I haven't posted anything on here in a while but felt like putting these out there. It has kinda of a weird rhythm so please don't focus on the breaks, and more just on the words.

I started it about someone I know, and then it morphed into kinda of a character version of her and then parts of me as well. Generally, I'm happy with the wording.

I will definitely C4C if you post "C4C"



She's got the whole world fallen in love with her eyes
She's got everyone fallen for her disguise
She says she's going to change the world
But it's the world that changes her

And when she's through with everyone
She turns around and runs away
She cries
You can see it in her eyes

The way she breathes and sings
The way she's always trembling
When she speaks
But she won't be weak

She's got the whole world wrapped around her finger and she knows
She looks back one more time, forgets it all before she goes
She's been diagnosing everything she sees
Spreading it all around like a green disease

She's so trapped in her doubts
Thinks she's got it figured out
But it slows down
She's got her own plans
Knows where she stands

The way it's always been
The way she's got them all locked in
Her mind
She won't be defined (she's doing fine)

She knows what she's doing, known it all for days
She's so concrete in her ways
But she's he too smart to let it drop, too kind to let it fail
She's been sitting there all day, biting her nails

She's been through it all before
Can't take it any more
And hides
Why is it so dry?

She's been broken in and pulled apart
The way they've toyed with her heart
She runs
She's holding the gun
ok thanks for the CC

Ill think of changing that line

I did change that 2nd rhyme

and that the contradiction is what I was going for (but I did change that line)
thanks!
I'm gonna go with

Lyrics:

Walking around this empty place
Thinking of what's up on your face
Can you see from my point of view?

I don't know what's right or wrong
but I'm already halfway gone
How far are you?

I walk up on your broken glass
Trying not to come in last
I came right out of the blue

Blue, Blue, Blue eyes shape my life
Blue, Blue, Blue skies make my life
Your heart is red but the organ black
if not for the cross upon your back
I wouldn't know what to do
Blue, Blue, Blue eyes shape my life

When will the stars align?
When will you read my signs?
I don't think you have a clue

You sleep on the empty ground
wondering if you've found
your answer to the golden rule

I walk up on your broken glass
Trying not to come in last
I came right out of the blue

Blue, Blue, Blue eyes share my pain
Blue, Blue, Blue skies make it rain
You've become a train wreck
If not for the cross around your neck
I wouldn't have recognized you
Blue, Blue, Blue skies make it rain

Solo

I try to get around you
but there's no where to go but through
where will you run to?

Blue, Blue, Blue eyes shape my life
Blue, Blue, Blue skies make my life
Your heart is red but the organ black
if not for the cross upon your back
I wouldn't know what to do
Blue, Blue, Blue eyes shape my life

I walk up on your broken glass
Trying not to come in last
I came right out of the blue

Blue, Blue, Blue eyes do not lie

I'll be doing one too. good idea!
Walking down the street
Can’t help but think
Keep thinkin about your face

Always on my mind
Can’t seem to find
Any salvation from this place

Chorus:
I gotta get Up,
I gotta get away,
It’s hard to think in this dark place
I gotta get up and find a way

All clouds of lies
Control my life
Wasting my time

I was hit in stride
Oh what a ride
Just get off my mind

Chorus

Bridge:
Always too proud
Now its too tough to stand my ground
I just want to be found
Outside this place in my mind

Chorus:
Its about a pretty rough time in my life right now. I got hit with some illness/injury and having a lot of trouble walking and standing up. Diagnosis is a spine injury but theyre not sure. Hopefully when I go to Mayo Clinic in december they can fix it.

I feel like the sky is falling down
I cant stand up
I feel like im stuck inside
Stuck inside the bottom of a well
I cant see you any more
You’ve run away
But I need you here with me
To find strength in this pain

Oh cant you help me
I need your guidance now
Cant you help me
Im giving out
Im giving out

I cant do this anymore
I can t stand straight
Ive never felt this pain before
I feel like im gonna faint
I don’t know what to say
I want to move on
I need someone to show me the way
Fear ill soon be gone

Oh cant you help me
I need your guidance now
Cant you help me
Im giving out
Im giving out

I feel too alone
I still fear the unkown
Is this reality
Why did this happen to me
Im still waiting to see

Oh cant you help me
I need youre guidance now
Cant you help me
Im giving out
Im giving out

C4C? the early recording is on my profile
New song on my profile C4C? Im not much of a singer but working on it. I have a few other guitar parts, and still working on a few. But Ill probably eventually do it on electric and add a solo, been trying on electric but having trouble getting a proffesional sounding recording.

i love the fixer, got some, and speed of sound. tthe fixer is amazing, haha i even named one of my fantasy football teams, The Fixers

but yeah i head a lot of vs. on the radio, small town, daughter, rearview mirror, and then always the Ten classics
Demo for a song i wrote for my band. so just me on guitar, and singing (not actual bands singer though)

so just a demo but would really like some opinions

http://profile.ultimate-guitar.com/Smith22/
sorry if someone posted that and i mised it
sweet i get to post this? has anyone seen this?

http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=vids.individual&videoid=61913944

awesome vid. i love just breathe, (havent watched the whole thing yet)
i just hope i can see pearl jam before they retire, my dad and uncle saw them once. its funny, i hated pearl jam SOOO much growing up because of my dad blasting them and his terrible singing. Now I cant stop listening. im a bigger fan than them now. i love every song they have ever made. i guess its subconscious from listening to lost dogs in the car for the first 10 years of my life


but whats your guys' opinion on Lost Dogs? possibly my favorite. its just a fun listen. plust ive been listening to 4/20/02 a lot and that is an amazing song.
profile.

its kinda a given
thanks for replying i appreciate it
the a2006 wasnt availible in the us
and i just went with another stagg because it was the best option at the time

not really happy bout it, but im sure ill be happy with another one

and guitar hack it was a really bad break. just straight across, so u cant clamp it
just an demo i wrote for the band to hear, to see if they want to move on with this one

there is no bass
just a terrible drum loop
and not our bands real singer (sorry for the bad singing)

so its clearly a demo.

still want opinions though

and i dont think its really 6 minutes, i think it ends at 5 or so
So, I'd really really really appreciate your help if you can take the time and read this and help me through this terrible situation. PLEASE HELP!

So my birthday was a few weeks ago, I got a stagg acoustic electric that i really liked (169$), so about 2 weeks later, my dad drops it outside. (what a tragedy) ...headstock breaks clean off, just straight across which is very very weird. my guitar guy says its not fixable unless i wanna spend more than what the actual guitar was.

So...the owner of the shop says "Im gonna talk to stagg and see if they can get you a discount, and whatever they charge me, Ill give you that guitar for the exact same price they sold it to me for, no profit on my end" very nice

So Now my question is pricking out a new guitar....
Im guessing if i go with another stagg, i get dealer price (dont know what that is) plus like a 10% discount, on any stagg guitar i want.

I've also been playing some of those electro acoustic guitars, that have that vibrato feel and dont have the sound hole, and really like the sound of them, so im very interested in those.

So when I break it down I have choices:

Get the same guitar from stagg, i had with the dealer price and the 10% discount

get the stagg a-2006 (i dont know much about this I need your help with this one) with discounts

*****Go with another electro acoustic (not sure what the official name for these guitars is) without the sound hole. the less traditional guitar.******** im interested in the epiphone sst if you know anything about that

or look on craigslist and get one of the acoustic guitars there that are a dime a dozen (Minneapolis area if you know about any or care to search for me)


so do you know any guitars i should go after??? or can you just copy and past this and comment in a different color. try to talk me through this and give me your input???
the first paragraph made it for me. very wise thanks, while it wasnt what i was looking for (a formula) this was actually very helpful!!
So...I have written songs, and even though my band has liked them, I just tear them apart and try to build again with their parts. I think its because i have trouble putting emotion into my songs. Most of it is 4 chords with a basic strumming pattern and the same rhythm lyrics.

So once i finally feel pleased, I listen to the song "I Can't Stay" by the Killers and then I get depressed cause i know i cant write as well as that

so how do i refine my ideas, and make something amazing out of them that just blows me away. and so im actually pleased?

and how do i incorporate emotion into the song. I can do lyrics and stuff, but when i listen to my song, im just not impressed, even if everyone else is.

help would be appreciated

i dont know about red bar, over by the "time remaining" clock, it says "give up?" and if you click that it gives you the answers, and it shows a red circle for it! i dont know how to enter it tho

edit; do the give up thing, and then copy and paste that dot and press space after that
well someone dropped my new acoustic outside, and the headstock broke off. the first thing i thought of was

"if its broke, I wanna put a little fixing on it"
"I got some superglue if you need it"
yes sir
