All These Things In Time

By orangedrink on October 7, 2018 11:53 pm

This might be the best song I've done all year.  I wrote another song, but felt like it required too much work in what little time I had left.  I did all of this, start to finish, in less than 4 hours.  Might have to fix the mix, but really excited about this.  I got really emotional for some reason.  Not sure where this came from.  Acoustic guitar, Digitakt, electric bass, vocals.


come right now
sit by my side
look in my eyes
and share with me
the moment

the more we try
to keep these things
the more we hide
the essence
goes away

all these things in time will fade away

i’ve never tried
to figure it out
eventual pain
and saying goodbye
would never take

if i could turn back
looking away
but never again
irrelevant then 
i’m not going that way


all these things in time will fade away

Speaking as someone who generally dislikes coherent lyrics: Good lyrics!

It's always an awesome feeling when you feel particularly stoked about a track.  Some of the best stuff seems to flow out quickly.  I like the acoustic guitar sound along with the beat.

Grunge orangedrink is my favorite. It may be a little nugrunge, but that's just as fine.

Straight up Orangedrink with guitar and vocals is hard to beat. Couldn't pick a favorite from the year thus far, but this goes on the play list. Great work on the composition. The variation in low bass and heavy drums dropping in and out work well as does the warmth of the vocal and acoustic guitar over the digitakt drums.

That means so much coming from you.  I have been trying really hard to improve my lyrics this year.  It was nerve wracking to do lyrics in one day, but this was feedback I needed!

I know!  And just one day after I was feeling pretty down on myself about my work!  This track gave me the energy boost I needed to make it to the end of the year.  Thank you!

heart Thanks, Mr. Devieus!  Question for you: what do you think makes it grunge?  My vocal delivery maybe?  Bonus Question: And what is the difference between and grunge and nugrunge!??!  Inquiring minds want to know!  smile  Also, thanks for your continual comments, support,  and being a homie.

So grateful for you and so flattered to read this.  Feels amazing to put your heart and soul into something and have someone else pick up on it.  The beauty of the WB FAM!

It's definitely the guitar and the vocals where the guitar carries the melody and the voice doesn't move much. Nu grunge is more of a play on Nu metal, which is metal, rap and angst combined and I feel the percussion covers the rap part and the lyrics are pretty angsty, so that's where that comes from. It's very pretty though.

Solid song writing and vocal performance.  Digitakt on beats?

Thanks for explaining that!  I can definitely see that now.  I don't think I really knew what grunge was past flannel shirts, distortion, and hating everything. smile

Digitakt on beats for sure!  I am in love with that thing!  So much more fun than clicking boxes with a computer mouse heart

October 9, 2018 11:55 pm

Indeed!  You also use your ears more when using hardware.  So much more fun. smile

Great stuff, that Digitakt beat is dope, originally thought this was going to be a hip hop track and then it takes a surprising turn with the vocals and guitar.  Great lyrics and delivery, the chorus at the end is stuck in my head.

October 12, 2018 6:16 pm

Yes! This is great, love that outro chorus. Great lyrics. Cool mix of sounds. It's so good to get excited about a song and get that needed energy boost. I've been up and down throughout the year myself in the interest and motivation. The WB fam really helps have motivation to keep going. Thanks for the good tunes and support.

Glug glug glug (guzzling down that orange draaaank!)... Sounds so lush, that acoustic guitar strum is music to my mind... Great song legend, very inspiring

October 17, 2018 12:33 am

really nice work!

October 21, 2018 10:13 pm

Great track, wonderful combination of Digitakt beat to the grunge ballad feel!

October 27, 2018 4:29 pm

Excellent chord progression in this and digging those daybreak inducing guitar strums.  Bass and beats complement your vocals so nicely too.  The digitakt really drives the track.  Nice job on the fade away outro!
