Default Life - Rock/Jazz Ballad

Hi all,

Wrote this song - something in a different vein for me. Feedback welcome:

https://soundcloud.com/jonathan-linton-3/life
LIFE
(Words by Jonathan Linton, Music by Jonathan Linton)

Playing to loose
The game of life
Taken from granted
Until the fight

A player looses
Empty space
Never filled
That one last embrace

Of Life
Life
The game of life

Frame in picture
Froze in time
Sadness eternal
Memory sublime

Always there
Empty space
Never filled
That one last embrace

Of Life
Life
The game of life

The guiding hand
Throughout my life
Made me win
But lost fight

Love forever
Never erase
Remember ‘till
That one last embrace

Of Life
Life
The game of life

Liking the vocals. Reminds me a bit of a band called Into Another as their vocalist had a great range and would add his own touch to lighter, more ambient parts of their tracks

I always like to hear unretuned vocals by a singer who doesn't need autotune. Personally not keen on the actual vocal treatment, I find it rather harsh but that's a style comment not a criticism. Mixwise and arrangement very impressive. Nice work.
