Great recipe, by a promising young chef.

We were goin’ downtown the place I know
I gotta real long face, this smiles for show

Had enough of the night, it goes on and on
Won’t get relief till we see the dawn

And now I’m holed up in this bar, I won’t be gettin’ very far
If you know an outer space, a place where we can get away

So I’m hopin’ we can go
To a time where weekends weren’t so cold

That’s hard to do here
Cause winters walking we’re not clear

Holed up for the night, cold’s creepin’ in
At least we gotta company, a bottle of gin

The warmth fades and I puff out a cloud
I hear it comin’ round, purple pushin’ plow

We’re gettin’ out of here, and goin’ to bed
Dreamy dopy dumb dreams in my head

If I wake while the suns still up
Please, knock me out please, buttercup

And now I’m holed up in this bar, I won’t be gettin’ very far
If you know an outer space, a place where we can get away

So I’m hopin’ we can go
To a time where weekends weren’t so cold

That’s hard to do here
Cause winters walking we’re not clear



Looking for feedback on

any!

Really dope arrangement and percussion work. Love hearing your buttery freakin’ vocals. Loving the bass performance, too. Couple of tangy high frequencies in here that I wouldn’t mind battling, but other than that it sounds cool as hell.

^ Yes, we can finally hear your voice clearly in the mix! Your sweet, light, falsetto is shining anddd I can understand all the lyrics. Sounds incredible.

Ben, I am humbled. Absolutely love this– Sheena and I chilled hard to this last night. That punchy bass is so sick. Overall this gave me some solid tv on the radio vibes.

I’ve had this stuck in my head the last few days, love this, my dude.
