Having tried singing into a microphone, there's a way to project each word that isn't depending on the speed of the tune. In this demo there are two performing. The female voice is fighting every single thing possible to project the lyrics. The speed, the guitar volume and the expressions required to emphasise the storyline. So It would assist the understanding if the tune were slowed to about 80% if that's technically possible, Having the text of the lyrics would also help, yet it isn't provided. The second part begins way too loud as a sharp shock that could be edited to omit the start of it so it only commences with the main lyrics. It is a good contrast with the female voice, yet the volume is something again that could be lowered. So a technical edit would assist, ie female voice louder, guitar volume lower, male voice start edited, volume lower.
The lyrics present the content in such a way that a story is being developed based on emotional trauma that's kept secret to safeguard the other knowing what happened, yet it creates a wall between the two hearts that truly care for each other. Without God's healing of the memories each heart is trapped in the past and therefore robbing the joy of each and every day. To grasp the fast-spoken lyrics is impossible, the guitar is too close to the microphone, so to speak. It dominates and shrouds the vocal content and emotional plaintiff cry from the heart, Trust me, tell me, you know that I love you...
As this refers to the harsh realities of war and the sacrifice of honoured soldiers, it deserves to be presented at its best. I know that isn't easy, as I tried 20 times with one song I wrote, but I still couldn't get it exactly right. I believe the mp3 file should be hosted on its own web page with the photo and the lyrics and not accompanied by a follow-on audio piece that has nothing to do with the message. I believe that reading the lyrics after the song would help before a second playback. Thus enhancing the dramatic appeal of the theme. The less distractions, the better.
Thanks for sharing the info on the poemhunter dot-com forum so I could find this and share some suggestions.
As for me, I have written poems for the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal and about how God can transform our broken hearts and broken lives.
