Reminds me of Wish by NIN.

Hey you’re actually right, didn’t realise that :sweat_smile:

Edit: @the_termin8r I also noticed that both songs have the same tempo (135 BPM)! That’s probaby why you thought about Wish

October 7 2017: More lyrics
It’s been at least two months since I started this project, can’t believe it. Sadly I didn’t make a lot of progress this week due to schoolwork, but I did write some lyrics again. Some lines are old, some have been rewritten and some are a bit simple. Yet I feel like I’ve captured a nice ‘atmosphere’, if you will. No idea if I’m actually going to use these lyrics, since I already have 6 songs that I want to put on the EP. Nonetheless, these are heavily influenced by personal experiences, so they mean a lot to me. I hope you like it.

‘’What’s Holding You Back’’

(Verse)
You think there’s nothing I can do
And there’s nothing you can be
All I want is to release you
From fear and set you free

(Chorus)
What’s holding you back?
What’s keeping you down?

(Verse)
I can’t reach you anymore
It seems that tides have turned
But I keep knocking on your door
I’ll probably never learn

(Chorus)
What’s holding you back?
What’s keeping you down?

(Bridge)
I keep asking you
You keep staring back
What’s holding you back?
I keep asking you
And you keep staring back
What’s keeping you down?

(Pre-chorus)
Keep knocking on your door
I’ll probably never learn

(Chorus)
What’s holding you back?
(Just tell me)
What’s keeping you down?
(Just tell me)

BTW: I’m still open to receiving your audio clips. For more info, read this previous update (click on the link): Work In Progress: Making my first EP

I like the theme of the lyrics
I think the chorus just needs a bit more to give the song a break from each verse
