Pro General Comments: Hi Joy,This is a beautiful song with a soaring vocal and uplifting arrangement. I would place this song in the pop/adult contemporary genre. I really love the chord progression and well constructed melodic lines. The meter in verse two is very different than the meter in verse 1 but because this is a song written by you for you to perform the only rule to follow is there are no rules. The different meter made the 2nd verse melody and phrasing slightly different but you made it work. The only thing i would change is the drum track...the wood block hit was distracting to me. The song would be much stronger without it in my opinion. The classical instrumental section that led to the bridge was long but it kept me interested. The bridge lifted nicely and led to a strong last chorus. Beautiful emotional, heartfelt and inspirational vocal. Overall this song is very impressive. I also loved the simplicity of your lyric. Very conversational,easy to follow and understand. Good rhyme scheme. You start each chorus with the hook as an option you might also want to consider ending the chorus with Thank You as well. The way it is right now "only for you" is the secondary hook because that line ends the first two choruses.

Quote From Pro: Joy A Simons Brown is a songs best friend. She is a very talented and skilled singer/songwriter with a very bright future.

Pro General Comments: No way, Jose! No way, no way! Okay, I'll stop now. But here are my observations about this song: It's a smash hit! Everything about this song works for me. The idea is so unique, fresh and a truly creative approach.The instrumental track is top notch and record quality. Everything is recorded well and placed in the mix in such way that everything has it's own space. My hat is off to the engineer. What a marvelous job of recording and mixing. The production is crisp, clear and very professional (again, this really does sound like a master recording). The melody and lyric hang together well and the story line unfolds in a way that keeps the listener engaged and wanting more. This is where most writers get lost. They seem to want to put the second verse first and not allow the story to unfold for the listener. Bravo!The vocalist is obviously a pro. His vocal pitch and timber are right on. His accent sounds natural and not pushed or phony. He emotes each word of the lyric and there is absolutely no sense that he is "just reading". (I feel like I'm gushing here but rarely do I get a song this well written and a demo this well performed, recorded and produced. Honestly, as the great Max D. Barnes used to say, "The only thing this song needs is a release date!")Thank you for sharing and for allowing me to offer my critique. Way!

Pro General Comments: Interesting conceptual song. The lyric and vocal draw the listener in and the song unfolds in a very compelling way. Not certain about where the song will eventually end up but it seems prime for a film or television placement.I'd love to hear more from this writer if there is more material. Please feel free to submit more for review at any time.The overall sense I get from the song is sadness and gloom but a slight notion of happiness (even if it is in memories.) The sparrow's nest is an intriguing idea. Very visual and mysterious, particularly in light of the fact that it is such a common item. Interesting concept here. Bravo!The lyric really does create very strong visuals. The breathiness of the vocal creates an eeriness but yet undeniable feeling. Very conversational and personal. It's almost as if the singer is speaking directly to me.The sparse track allows the vocal to drive the story without getting in the way or causing any distractions. The piano sound is marvelous (great recording technique!). The track breathes and has lots of space. I think the track is sensational!

Quote From Pro: Stark lyric and excellent storytelling.
