Don't Let The Sun Set - new original song

Hi lovely people
Here's a song that I wrote and recorded.
Nits and crits welcome. I hope you like it.
Edit: Just for clarity
***NO LOOPS WERE USED IN THE MAKING OF THIS SONG***

Don't Let The Sun Set
Written and performed by Staypress
V1
You were a girl with an eye for the goal
You got what you wanted, you were nice on the whole
When we got together our team had won the cup
We thought we'd live forever and things were on the up
Chorus
Don't let the sun set
Cos we're not done yet
we're a pair there's no doubt
So please don't walk out
V2
I was a boy who's heart had been broken
I met you and as soon as we'd spoken
Knew you were the one but then you grew weary
You found another then wouldn't come near me
Now the game is over, it's a victory for you
Can't we go to extra time or see the season through?
Chorus

    Very original feel here Daryl. Everything is mixed clean, sounds nice and is locked tighter than a pair of spandex on a sumo wrestler.

    I love those weird sounds spread around the background.  Your songs are fun to listen to.  You never know what's going to pop up in the atmosphere.

    Hey, Daryl,
     
    You've got a very cool, modern sounding pop rocker here, with excellent writing, great playing and vocals, and a crystal clear, well textured mix!
     
    I always love the clever twists and turns in your originals and the classy little extras in your mixes that help make up that trademarked tasty, very recognizable Staypress Sound!
     
    Dynamite work, Daryl, top notch all the way around!

    i can't really relate to tunes written around loops,
    without a guitar in my hands, i'm not sure what to do!

    Reggae - that's a cool song and the chorus hooked me - nice job.  The drums sound great in the mix. I really enjoyed listening to this one - lots going on in the mix and it all worked to my ears.  Impressive lead vocal. I wouldn't change a thing regarding the mix.

    the shaker makes it. Seriously! Melody and vocals are catchy as all heck. That chugga guitar waaaaay back, very nice. I don't think a mix could be cleaner and clearer than this.

    You guys have a distinctive sound, that's for sure, even with all the audio bits here and there. I really liked how the verses built up to the chorus.
    I was wondering about the Jamaican flag on the soccer ball and then it hit me - reggae!

    Great tune! - Love the mix and production. Absolute top notch. Cannot fault it.
    I'm getting a Gorillaz vibe from this. Your vocal is teetering on the Albarn.  Is that what you want?
