    I felt it probably could have ended at about 3:60 or so without adding elements like key changes or alternate choruses.  Good song though.  Again, I appreciate your voice.

    Great song. I think it needs more of a distinct chorus section though. There's too much of the same thing going on verse after verse. The vocal is excellent as well as the guitars

    This song sounds a bit familiar somehow but it's full of good solid work, love the lyrics and production and you've done it proud.
    The vocal is the stand out for me 'cause it suits the song and it's message/story, so all bl**dy good! well done an' thanks for the share.

    Does sound a little samey, perhaps if you did a section with breakdown and as suggested above a different chorus.

    Mix wise it does not sound bad here.

    Good song. I think the others are right about maybe redoing this one day with a bridge and / or an instrumental movement that takes the song somewhere else for a while. Nice recording and vocals. Maybe just a tad too compressed.

    This sounds good. I like the song...the rhythm'd be a pretty nice groove to play to...it kind of feels like you can hang back and hang back and play behind the beat almost...or fashionably late but still on time. If you know what I mean. 
     
    Some more oohs and aahhs would improve the song. Your vocals performance sounds in a good range for you. 
     
    I totally agree with Wayfarer
