You know me. I’ll say I’ll review and I do, but it just takes a few good weeks. Sorry ‘bout that.
Either this is one of the one’s you showed me, or parts of it just remind me of other songs you’ve written–which, with some lines, is the case. It’s a pretty good song. There were some awkward line cuts, but otherwise it’s pretty good. It’s one of those songs that could go either way, all depending on the music.

Another master piece as usual. The songs that you write now are improved in contrast to your earlier work and when I think it can't get any better it does!

I HIGHLY disagree. I think this is very well written and this goes right up there as some of my favorites that you've written. This just reafirms your talent and I like it!

So much detail. I commend you on another job well done. 10 stars. Somehow I don't get where the title fits but that's for only you to understand an noone else. Great job.

“A Thousand Counting”
It’s an okay song. I wouldn’t say it’s one of my favorites, though. The chorous is pretty good (though rather awkward at moments) and the second verse was awesome. However, the first felt a bit awkward, and there were one or two parts in the last few verses that felt funny, though they could work with the right music. I loved the bit “But I can keep on going, I'm sure to survive/But how can you be so sure/That I won't take my life” Not one of your best works, but better than it would first appear, with a great meaning.
I have the same view on this song as I did the last, though for different reasons. This one has some great parts, but it could do with editing. Your phrasing was what was the downfall of this song, because some of the lines could have been awesome, but they just didn’t seem to be as good as you could write them. For instance, I thought this idea was great, but the last one or two lines could be written differently: “You're to blame, I convince myself/You're the sword, you need help/But I know, It's the other way/I'm the one, who's bled away.” With a bit of slight editing, this could be an awesome song. “Falling, slipping, losing grip/I plunge at your finger tips.”
Actually, this song makes me think of Matchbox 20 more than Evanescence. The song is written well (aside from a line or two with the awkward phrasing, again) but it just didn’t appeal to me all too much. It just felt a bit... childish, I guess. Perhaps that’s just me. “I miss the days of voices, of calm and easy tones/I didn't feel so cold then, I don't think I was alone” is a nice thought, but maybe try to say consistent with the tenses because it makes the reader (or, me, at least) double-back and think: “Wait, so did you not think you were alone or do you now think that you weren’t alone then when?” Does that make sense? If it doesn’t, I’ll explain it to you when I talk to you. As I said, the song is well written, it just doesn’t really hold much appeal.
Er... I don’t really like this one, to be honest. It really doesn’t have much appeal to me and it doesn’t grab your attention all too well. It just seems really forced... I won’t say much for this song because of those reasons, heh.
“Half a Mind”
Ah, I like this one. I get what you were saying about it, now, and it could use with a bit of touching up in places (really, the only part that I didn’t like too much was the second half of the chorous because of the way it flowed from the first half) but it’s awesome. When I read the lines “'Cause you're the trust, you're the light/You're the origin to idolize” I kind of knew I’d end up liking it, hehe. The biggest throw-off with this song, though, is that it feels almost poetic one moment, and then it shifts back to lyrical. However, that also adds a nice effect because it helped me think up a tune. I don’t know, I just really liked this one.
And there’s the review I said I would eventually get to. It’s uselessly long, but oh well. I was rambling, as always. Great job, Megs, and keep it up (as if I need to tell you).

Wow this song has to be one of your best yet. I like the line No matter how long
I promise I'll come
Back to this crazy, amazing, all hating, consuming world...
And redeem myself
It just struck a chord but it's awesome. In some lines you have to watch you're count but this is one of my faves.
I've updated with more songs my fav being the fourth. Later!

Hey! I really like your song, Out of Ordinary and I was wondering if I could use it in my story I'm writing. I will give you full credit for the lyrics.
Think about it and let me know. You can e-mail me at

That was a great song and I complement you. It was really easy to figure out the beats and stuff. I've been reading your lyrics over again (including diary which still rates a 2 but oh well) and over the last few months you've improved. There's always room for improvement.
Oh shameless plug, I'm releasing my soundtrack called 'Risks are Necessary' so be prepared. I'm hoping to hear from you. I'd like it very much. Great to hear the opinion of a fellow song writer,

Sweet. This is good stuff. Keep it up and go check out my band.

Could have sworn I read "Behind Me" before... whatever. Anyway, commenting on each song individually because... yeah, there's no reason, just because I am.
It's okay. Doesn't do much for me, though. The meaning is good, but I think you could have written it a bit better. It's choppy at parts, and the verses just don't seem to do much for me... [Yeah, I'm in one of my "honest" moods today, heh] The chorous is pretty good though. I think you could end the chorous with "No I, would fly...wouldn't I?" and it would sound better because, to me at least, the "Oh do I need a super hero now" sounds kinda random. One part I liked a lot, though, was "I cannot fly/I can't even breathe/Aren't you a fool, for coming to me" Pretty good song, not one of your bests.
Ah, I still swear that I read and commented on this once before... Anyway, point is that I love it. Just... yeah. The meaning and the way it's written is just... erm... *word-stupid now*. Anyway, I loved the ending. "Why...Wasn't I lost before/It should have been too late/Why...Am I still feeling/Why was I saved?/I had my damaged person found/And nursed back to health/And all of this endeavor was/Really something else." Really, I just love this song.
Mixed feeling on this. Nice idea and pretty cool;nice ideas of how to write it out. However, it's kinda wordy which takes away some of the affect that I think you may have been going for. Still, a nice read [and oh so much better than the pure shit that's been around here lately *falls over*]. Pretty good. I like it better than "Hero's Soul," but it could still use some work.
Okay, so there's my useless and pointless comments. If I don't talk to you for a while: Happy Birthday.

.. very well written.
good point, also.

Wow! I really love this song! Keep writing!

It's okay. Maybe I'm just being really picky today, but I th ink you could have done a bit better. With the right type of music, it could make a pretty awesome song [the structure, to me at least, makes it seem like it works really well with the music] but lyricaly-wise, it's not your best. The lines in the song that I did like a lot, though, were "After staying so long, I ran away I shouldn't have left, I was afraid". I also thought you had said you'd written another new song... Hm... *shrugs* Maybe you just didn't post it [no duh, Jess]. Anyway, pretty good, can't wait till you get some more great songs to put up here

I like this one. makes me think of some of my own ideas. But I'm not a songwriter, so, uh...yeah. I'm gonna shut up and look at another of your songs that sounds interesting.
