Hey Esther! I tried transcribing some of the lyrics, and again I got some but not all of them. I thrive on sadness, Esther, I'm more comfortable with sadness than I am with happiness -- PLZ share your tears with me I want to hear them. In fact without them, I can't comment too much on the lyrical content of course. The title intrigues me though.
Gorgeous melody in the beginning, I told you already that part of it reminds me of "Zelda's Lullaby" which is from a game. That being said, it gives me N O S T A L G I A.

<S>I hear acceptance of an ending relationship, is that true? Or at least the knowledge that it wouldn't last or something. </S>
At the end, I hear one vocal note start to play and then it cuts off, at the very end. Esther there's a really sweet quality to your voice, although it's melancholic as well. Honestly when I do these sort of reviews, I really want to absorb everything. So I listen over and over and the more I do I am starting to pick up more lyrics. Correct me if I'm wrong,
I hear something about a summer fling -- but that everything felt real. You gave your all, wasn't enough, and your brain reverts to cynicism by saying "I should have known -".
Quite sad, but I'm sure you can agree pain is art <3

Anyway, beautiful melodies and the timbre of your voice is great -- very soothing and smooth. I do hear your voice start to cut out a few times, mainly near the end, that sound like they're due to low vocal chord exertion. Try experimenting with putting a bit more force into your vocals. Idk your set up, but as a teen (and even now tbh) I was/am really self conscious about my voice. That caused me to like sing pretty quietly in order to not be heard by anyone else in the house - which made my vocals like cut out or fade because the voice would just stop I guess due to that low exertion. I think that you could retain this smoothness and melancholic beauty while still putting more force into it.
There are still some parts that are pitchy, but again for the most part you're on-pitch completely. As far as the reverb goes, I can't quite tell. I'm a reverb fiend, and would like to request more reverb........... I think it's perfect for this type of music and it further smooths out the actual waveforms your vocals produce. Just experiment with it Esther and keep up the good work! Thanks for sharing.

Esther, lyrics normally are a big part of music. In your case however, they're ultra important because that's actually what you write. Vocal melodies and lyrics, so I think they're integral to getting better feedback. When I post a song of mine that has vocals, I definitely post the lyrics so people know. Slythpaw luvs it when people post their lyrics, and I just think it's important. Please do!

I mean it's up to you though.

I saw lofi. I like. I saw that you made it. I came running to listen to it.
The beat is nice. The way your voice enters in in the beginning is so smooth! I like your voice a lot in this piece. It sounds so emotional, as if this song is about something very personal to you. Something, that only someone in your shoes could understand. As the song goes, you seem to get to get more active with your singing, and your voice becomes louder. I will be honest, i am very impressed with your singing. Id be curious on how it would sound on several other melodies. However, Lo-fi and chill tones seem to be your perfect match!
Great job! I cant wait to see the next thing you post! :lol:
