Creative Brief

Prog Rock tune. Would really like to fill it out with some keys/synth and backup vocals. Key is Bm / BPM alternates between 82 (beginning and end sections) and 106 (middle section). Tempo changes at 2:34 (to 106) and 5:45 (back to 82). Thanks!!

 

Chord progression for beginning and ending sections (I think these are right):

Bm / A (4x)

Bm / Bm7** / E add9 / Em add9 / F#7

** Not exactly sure on this but it's a Bm chord adding an A bass note.

 

LYRICS

Well, you cast your spell upon me
And you lay your pretty traps
You weave your wicked webs
And lead me down a darkened path
Now, let me go....let me go...please let me go...

Well, you talk to me in riddles
Make me read between the lines
Make me question my own sanity
And crucify my mind
Now, let me go....let me go....just let me go...

I can't stand the pressure
I can't stand the pain
I can't stand the thought of you
Driving me insane

I can't stand the pressure
I can't stand the pain
I just can't stand the thought of you

I can't stand the pressure
I can't stand the pain
And even though I hate it
Well, I love it just the same

I can't stand the pressure
I can't stand the pain
I can't stand the thought of you
Driving me insane

I can't stand the pressure
I can't stand the pain
I just can't stand the thought of you

So I eat your poison apple
And I fall under your spell
And I follow your cold whispers
To a deep and lonely hell

That's where you cut my heart to pieces
And you tie my brain in knots
You slip into my nightmares
And you dominate my thoughts

Now you torture me with silence
And you haunt me in the night
And I feel the weight of sorrow
As you crush me with your lies

I try to keep you at a distance
And I try to tell you no
I try to tell you that I'm finished
That you have to let me go

I try to tell you that I'm finished...
I try to tell you that I'm finished...
I try to tell you that I'm finished...
I try to tell you but you just won't let me go...

I try to tell you but you just won't let me go...

Let me go....oh, just let me go...
