Description of the track:

This song is part of a music project/artist called Novo Amor, it is taken from the Debut EP 'Drift'. The song was written and recorded in the summer of 2012 using all live instruments and microphones.

All composition, playing and production is done by myself in my childhood home in Mid Wales, UK. The gear used includes an iMac using Logic Pro 9, SE 2200 a microphone, AKG Perception 120 microphone, Shure PG48 Microphone and an Audio Technica ATM41HE microphone.

Mixing was also done in Logic, though a lot of the audio was left quite raw to keep the natural sound of the room. Plug-ins used include Fab Filter compression and EQs, a range of Flux plug-ins and general logic multiband compression, delay units and Space designer. Mastering was done using Flux plug-ins and Ozone 4.

I hope you enjoy the song and if you wish to hear more then you can download the EP for free and 'Like' on Facebook. Thanks. Ali

Lyrics:

(Verse)
My eyes, heavy under water,
rusted in the rain,
I let go of all the ones i know,
thoughts of shame,

My ties broke in my hands,
colors bleeding out,
i let go of all that i once knew,
causing pain

(chorus)
So i flay my love, have i had enough?
its not ok to go and say you dont know
So i flay my love, have i had enough?
its not ok to go and leave me alone

(Verse 2)
Her eyes, heavy under slumber,
dusk falls in bane,
she threw away all that we once drew,
now i'm lying out of frame

(Chorus 2)
So i flay my love, have we had enough?
its not ok to go and say you dont know
So i flay my love, have we had enough?
its not ok to go and leave me alone

Oooo....
