Frankly, I was a little hesitant about posting this pell.
It’s not melodic, it’s not polished. I couldn’t remove the hiss in the background. (Argh.) And it sounds, well, plain weird to me.
Basically this was my attempt at describing how it might feel to have unrealistic expectations heaped upon a person, like you know, an idol.
Perhaps someone out there in the ccmixter universe could perform a miracle on this one?
Think the bpm is 104, if I’ve gotten my understanding of bpm right. And a C key? Maybe an electronic pop treatment would work? I dunno. Feel free to create your mesh.
Here are my lyrics, if it helps.
NO ANGEL, NO DEVIL
You seem to think I am
The best thing in your life
You trust me far too much
And give it some thought
I think I understand
You’re looking for a friend
But I don’t know how much
To be one
I’ve never tried to be
The perfect person who lives in your dreams
Impeccable, I may seem
I’ve got no power to save you or me
Yeah, I’m no angel, and I’m no devil
I’m plain and I’m not clever
Just an ordinary girl
You want the truth, but I don’t lie
I’m really just like you
And I can fall apart anytime
How do I make you see
Beyond this powdered face and skin
