I'm Not the Bad Guy - New original song

Hi forum folk
Here's a new bitter and twisted song that I wrote :)
Nits and crits welcome
 
https://soundcloud.com/sk...ons/im-not-the-bad-guy
 
I'm Not the Bad Guy
Written and performed by Staypress
V1
I'm sick of saying sorry for things I did not do
I'm tired of building bridges so I can get to you
V2
I feel like I've been branded a monster among men
I think I'll build a time machine and put it right again.
Ch
I'll admit your jealousy didn't bring out the best in me
But I'm not the bad guy
i don't deny I lost my cool, being made to feel a fool
But I'm not the bad guy
V3
I'm tired of feeling guilty for things I should have done
I'm sick of being sorry for fights I never won
Ch
Middle bit
I'd be the first to admit I was wrong
If you'd allow me to talk that long
The thought of you was heavenly, reality was hell
Who's the guilty party? You know damn well
Ch to end

Excellent Daryl. Love that change up into the chorus, nifty writing mate. Cool little synth details going on too, likes that.

Nice one, Daryl.  Especially like the chorus with the subtle vocal harmony and the organ you got in the background.  Clever lyrics and nice clean production.  Radio ready for sure.

Yep... very cool. Good work.
 
I always enjoy the songs you present as they are overflowing with creative expression.  Unique things here and there  and yet, you tend to have a cohesive style that runs through them all.
 
Another good job.

A textbook Staypress production, clean airy well positioned instrumentation, balanced lead vocal and harmonies, one could say smooth.

Hey Daryl, 
Really nice job. It sounds great on my speakers. So open, super good lows to highs. The arrangement works so well. It is minimal but not lacking at all. I like the ambiance on the vocals.

Friggin' stellar.
 
Such a talented mixer, and songwriter.
 
I think I noticed your vocal has a high octave harmony AND a lower octave harmony? Can I really be hearing that? Super cool vocal presentation, and the chords are original and inventive.
 
So what's not to like?
 
cheers,

That octave thing was popularized by Chris Difford and Glen Tillbrook.  In fact Daryl could easily pass as Squeeze.

Hi Daryl,
Even if I english is not my native language,I really appreciate your lyrics and I am thankfull you take time to type.. It is much easier for "guys like me " ( makes me think about Aimee Mann sorry sorry..nothing to do with the job at hand)
You are a poet and you are an author.
The song is really easy to listen to and your voice makes perfectly the job.
Because I am french I must say something which drives backwards... And it is that according to me ,the music is
just a little too much in front of the vocal in the chorus ( which actually to my ears sounds like a pre chorus introducing the nice small instrumental bridge).
Good job ,thanks for sharing.
All the best.
Olivier

I am a Gemini so I have an inbuilt alter ego and internal critic :)
I also like monkeys.
I can also take criticism and would take such criticism as a gift from someone who has taken their time to listen to my song not hurl it back at them and tell them they're wrong.
This is in no way aimed at you mate.
Just saying to anyone reading this. ;)
Danke schon

Excellent work again Daryl! This is all through very nice balanced and tastefully mixed. All the quirky stuff going on in the background makes it very enjoyable to listen to. The intermission saturated piano in 1:00 is lovely. The octave singing is made by you? I thought it was a layer by mrsDaryl1968...
