Steemit open mic week 128 - So long (original) @graemesaxton

in openmic •  last month

This is my first entry for the open mic contest, original song I wrote about moving on.

So long

I tried my best to walk away, but my best doesn't get me far somedays
I tried my best to leave you alone, and try to remember what we had is long gone

I guess it's times to let you go, I'm sorry I held on so long
I think I've known all along that I don't blame you at all

You tried your best to make it clear, and I tried just as hard to pretend I couldn't hear it
I tried my best to feel the same, but I remember how we were you remember how we became

I guess it's time to let you go, I'm sorry I held on so long
I think I've known all along, that I don't blame you at all

When your unstoppable faith met my immovable doubt
You forgot your tendency to whisper, and me my need to shout

I guess it's time to let you go, I'm sorry I held on too long
I think I've known all along, none of this was your fault

I think I've know all along, I don't blame you at all
I guess it's time to let you go, I'm sorry I held on too long

Was pretty great

I loved the lyrics and you sung it so well. To be frank, I did not expect to listen to such a beautiful soft music. It was refreshing.. :)

I also see that this is your first post on steemit. So congrats for getting curie vote on it. It's definitely an amazing start. Moreover, I also think that you should consider making a #introduceyourself post. Almost everybody does it before posting anything here. It helps to familiarise you with the community.

Welcome to steemit and have a great day!

·

Thank you so much for the kind words... frank (haha). And thanks for the advice, but be careful what you wish for because I'm working on a introduction post right now, and it's literally the dumbest anyone has ever talked to a camera in the history of looking dumb. I'm commited now though so stay tuned it should be uploaded soon. Thanks for listening though man, I really do appreciate it so much.

Your intro post doesn't have to be a video bro.Most folks cant talk natural to the camera like me :).The intro post is just to sort of describe who you are and what you do.That said if you do a intro video talk for a few minutes then give us a song you'll likely get a much better payout than the average intro post.

Most welcome. Sometimes, I also enjoy listening to dumb things. They have their own story to tell. All the best 😉

I'm genuinly lost for words. Thank you so much Gene!

@graemesaxton, Just awesome brother and these words hold the feelings of deep Realisation and Understanding which we see very less nowadays in this Materialistic world. Keep up and never leave your world of words and music. Stay blessed.

Hi @graemesaxton, Welcome to the blockchain! Love the song. Great to see you jumping right into the OpenMic contest.

We get a lot of people on here who try to pass off someone else's work as their own. Could you add a link back to your Steem blog on your YouTube post, or on your Facebook page? It will go a long way to confirm it is you and help others appreciate your music here.

Thanks,
Gene

Thanks so much, that's all done now. It's been an amazing first day as part of the community.

·
·

Haha, it is not really a typical start. I am glad I spotted your post 8 minutes after you posted it. You should consider doing an introduction post using the tag introducemyself soon. It is a great way to let people get to know who you are and what you do.

Best of luck in the OpenMic contest. I personally think your chances are good this week.

Come join us on the @c-squared Discord channel (the link is in the vote above). We have a self-promotion channel where you can drop your own posts, or if you find posts by other people you can jump into becoming a curator and helping others get noticed.

I'm glad you did too haha. I'll make an introduction video asap, but still very unpracticed and awkward talking to the camera. Thank you so much for the kind words, it's amazing to get some feedback, I have lots of material so will for sure use the discord groups. And thanks for the advice, very new to this and trying to figure everything out but everyone is being so cool and helpful.

Excelente trabajo amigo. Felicidades bendiciones y exitos!!!.

Eso es muy amable gracias :D
