Recorded in Audacity on my AT2020 mic, filmed on my Canon Vixia camera and synched up in Adobe Premiere. No tuning, or video cuts. (I was actually pretty happy with my 3rd take, but I had a bunch of facial hair and I couldn't decide if I should keep it for the cover, or lose it... so I filmed 5 times with scruff and once without. :-P) And now, the links and credits! *want a potato chip?* PLEASE SUBSCRIBE! https://www.youtube.com/c/BlackGryph0n Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/BlackGryph0n Twitter: https://twitter.com/BlackGryph0n Instigram: https://www.instagram.com/blackgryph0n/ Buisnes Inquires: GabrielBrownInfo@gmail.com Backing Track available here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iyqDjiAMidc - -- --- ---- Lyrics ---- --- -- - I can't write one song that's not about you Can't drink without thinkin' about you Is it too late to tell you that Everything means nothing if I can't have you? I'm in Toronto and I've got this view But I might as well be in a hotel room, yeah It doesn't matter 'cause I'm so consumed Spending all my nights reading texts from you Oh, I'm good at keepin' my distance I know that you're the feelin' I'm missing You know that I hate to admit it But everything means nothin' if I can't have you CHORUS X2 I'm so sorry that my timing's off But I can't move on if we're still gonna talk Is it wrong for me to not want half? I want all of you, all the strings attached Oh, I'm good at keepin' my distance I know that you're the feelin' I'm missing You know that I hate to admit it But everything means nothin' if I can't have you CHORUS X2 I'm trying to move on Forget you, but I hold on (Everything means nothing, Everything means nothing, babe) I'm trying to move on Forget you, but I hold on Everything means nothing if I can't have you CHORUS X2 - -- --- ---- End ---- --- -- - HELLO DDR's (Dedicated Description Readers)! I literally first heard this song about a day before I recorded it.. I'll probably hate this cover in a few weeks, once I learn the song better. That usually happens once I really memorize the song and start to notice the more subtle nuances in the voices and instrumentation. I can already hear one thing I wish I did differently... I'm singing "about - you" and Shawn sings it more like "aboud-a-you" assigning an extra note to the "a" that I omit when I sing with a space in between the "about" and the "you". Oh well, I'll do it better at Karaoke next time. :-P So Nate and I were gonna try to do Genre Switching Challenge 5 this weekend, but we had to push it back for a few reasons, the coolest of which is that my friend Claire Corlett is here from LA! I Don't get to see her very often but we're pretty close so it's cool when I get too. :-) She's here for a little over a week to record an EP she's writing, and also to explore the desert. Gonna take her shooting tomorrow if it doesn't rain (don't worry, I'm not gonna kill Sweetie Belle). Ok, now for an easter egg... OK, how about this, here's a video of Claire and I playing Ping Pong. Riveting, I know. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kg8qM-c_v80 Ok, it's 6:08am and the sun is coming up, so that means it's time for bed! G'nite ~Gabo
