Lyrics

IVY

BEEN MANY TIMES I WANTED OUT,
MY SPIRIT BROKEN, WASHED AWAY.
BUT NOW AS EVERY RAY OF SUNSHINE FALLS,
I SEE YOUR FACE AND KNOW ITS FATE I STAY.

MENTAL TERRORISM TRIES TO BREAK ME DOWN,
EVEN IN THIS SHORTEST TIME.
SEARCHING INWARD FOR MY RHYME & REASON,
SHAKING OFF MY GHOSTS WITHIN.


THERE'S SOMETHING IN YOUR EYES, A LONGING FOR A LOVE TO HOLD. I SEE SOMETHING IN YOUR SMILE, GIVES ME SHELTER, SHELTER FROM THE STORM.

FUTURE OVERSHADOWS PAST,
AS MY LIPS ENTWINE WITH YOURS,
AND THE IVY WRAPPED AROUND MY HEART,
WILL STRANGLE ME NO MORE.


THERE'S SOMETHING IN YOUR EYES, A LONGING FOR A LOVE TO HOLD. I SEE SOMETHING IN YOUR SMILE, GIVES ME SHELTER, SHELTER FROM THE STORM. READING IN BETWEEN YOUR LINES, TO THE SOUL THAT LIES BENEATH. OVER SHATTERED HEART AND BROKEN GLASS, MY FEAR LEARNS TO CONFORM.


IN THE OF WAKE OF ALL MY HISTORY,
IN THE FOREFRONT OF MY DREAMS,
SILENT NOW, THE SCREAMS AND IN-BETWEENS.


THERE'S SOMETHING IN YOUR EYES, A LONGING FOR A LOVE TO HOLD. I SEE SOMETHING IN YOUR SMILE, GIVES ME SHELTER, SHELTER FROM THE STORM. READING IN BETWEEN YOUR LINES, TO THE SOUL THAT LIES BENEATH. OVER SHATTERED HEART AND BROKEN GLASS, MY FEAR LEARNS TO CONFORM.


TEAR DOWN THE IVY...THE IVY.

Nice instrumental balance where one instrument compliments the other. I also like the echo at the end of some vocal lines. I also like the tone of your voice when you reach the lower ranges - changes to be more powerful. Reminds me a little of some Savage Garden tracks.

This has a good overall sound. The recording and mixing is excellent, sounds very very professional.
Vocals are very good and delivered well. The guitar harmonics work very well both in the intro and in the rest of the song. Piano is good also, all instruments are effective and sound good in the mix. Good job

Nice spacious mix. Very good intro. The voice comes in very nicely. Excellent voice well matched to the music and mix. Very good and well thought out lyrics. Nice coloring in the instrumental support.

pleasant vocal. lyric is pretty well done. i like that it doesn't always rhyme...nice touch.

Awesome! Grabs the listener right away. Professional recording. Just an awesome song that (if its not already) should be on the radio. Love the echo on the vox.

I'm normally not a fan of the echo effect on the vocal, but I've changed my mind. It sounds great in this song. Singer has a fine and natural voice, and that's something you either have or do not have. The lyrics are intropspective and laden with romantic tones that make this a solid and top notch tune.

Great tune. Tear down the Ivy, I love that conclusion. Beautifully arranged and played and great use of vocal effects.

Guitar with delayed harmonics creates a great intro! Singer has a cool tone, nice clarity and brightness to his delivery. The piano and shift in lead chord in the chorus create a wonderful lift. The mixture of processed vocals with the echo happening over the acoustic guitars and piano is quite striking, and I think the mood of this piece is MAGNIFICENT.
