Lyrics

As the lights surround us on the dance floor

Girl you make me feel like a long-lost stranger

As the night begins to fall

Is it just a dream or reality?


In your arms, speak to me what's true

Mend me, send me to a better place

When all the world is ragged, broke and torn

The starlight shines down on your face again


As the lights surround us on the dance floor

Girl you make me feel like we're out of danger

As the night begins to fall

Is this something real or a fantasy?


In your arms, speak to me what's true

Mend me, send me to a better place

When all the world is greedy, lost and worn

The starlight shines down on your face again


When we can decide exactly what we want to be

Then we will know who we are

When we can decide exactly what we want to be

Then we will know...






In your arms, speak to me what's true

Mend me, send me to a better place

When all the world is ragged, broke and torn

The starlight shines down on your face again


When we can decide exactly what we want to be

Then we will know who we are

When we can decide exactly what we want to be

Then we will know who we are

Who we are

Who we are

Who we are

+ intro grabbed me right away and builds
+ song structure simple and strong
+ rhythmic patterns up tempo are great with this piece
+ chord patterns, and melody fit well together
+ vocal very "Billy Idol-like" low range still has edge
+ instrumentation is excellent (bass + drum sound is powerful)
+ lyrics are clear and have a positive message

This a good song. Good dynamics. Nice arrangement. The vocals are very good. The recording is good. Nice balance. For some reason I thought the vocals reminded me a little bit of Gary Neuman.

Very nice work overall! Solid songwriting along with strong instrumentation as well as quality vocals/ harmonies. Thank you-i enjoyed listening to this!!!

You have really nailed it here, I think I need to start with that. I always listen to the good ones twice, this one got three listens ;)
Starts off great, straight into it. Nice drums/bass/guitar/keys. Bass and vocals work well in the verse with guitar coming in. Pre-chorus has a lovely feel to it (did I mention I like this!), builds up to the chorus nicely.
I love the piano melody and vocal behind the lyrics "Then we will know, who we are"..excellent
Even the fade out at the end, just perfect. Absolutely superb job.

Great song. His voice is wonderful and the instruments sounded great!

Great song!! So unique! ! Great arrangement !! Great " live " band sound!! Fantastic vocals and harmonies!!..took me back to the 80's yet has a modern sound:)!

Very cool modern rock, alternative rock feel. I like the very original shift from the verse to the chorus - cool how the harmonies come in. The mixing/production job was nice and clean.
I like the choice of sounds ie piano,keyboard, guitar sounds you went with. A very original chord progression in the chorus, and I'm a sucker for stuff like that, even though it might not always be as marketable. Great work :-)

I absolutely love this song, I'm addicted - it has so much going, so energetic, so happy...."when all the world is ragged, broke and torn" love the melodrama! But this song really takes you back to the magic feeling - LOVE

I like drums on this one; very driven! Great melodic singing!

Excellent production and great musicianship
