Broadjam Member Reviews

Love the arrangement and the vocalist. Outstanding musicianship and clear well pitched vocal. I think the lyrics are a little forced I certain places and make the singer struggle to get them all in. The chorus is solid musically but there are one or two places where again the lyrics seem to hesitate a bit. But this is a well written melody and concept. The arrangement and vocals are outstanding. Great job would love to hear more from this artist.

The lead vocals are great, I really like the drums as well.

Lyrics

Broken Strings

I went outside, took a breath to decide
Didn't care anymore about our love from before
You tore me apart, every beat of my heart
Got into my car and drove through the night
Rested my head till the morning light
Maybe now I'd think straight
Forward by keeping the faith

I'm not proud of what I've done
Away from you is a place to run

So I'll point these wheels and keep going west
Take the good and leave behind the rest
Till I find the piece you stole from my soul, I know
I will sing old songs till peace healed the hole
That I can find my own words and find my own
And forget what you said 'bout me not being enough
Cause my guitar plays, still can play on broken strings

You said that I wouldn't get too far on my own
In my beat up Mustang surely not alone
There's a lot of tread and miles up ahead
You didn't know about all of my pride
Bout the times you hurt me and I smiled inside
Now I don't ask for a thing
Cello's can play with one string

Even if it took some time
Leaving you were the best thing I've done

So I'll point these wheels and keep going west
Take the good and leave behind the rest
Till I find the piece you stole from my soul, I know
Cause my guitar plays,
Cause my guitar plays

Still can play on broken strings
