Acoustic Cover: Prepare for Disappointment by Matt Elliott

Cover song! This one is called Prepare for Disappointment by Matt Elliott, it's quite a sad and vengeful song, you can check my slightly modified lyrics below :)

Today was such a peaceful foggy day with zero wind so I thought it would be nice to attempt a record outside before winter hits. When I actually did my good take of course some cars went by (we live in a VERY QUIET AREA and cars barely ever pass LOL), it's a little slice of life so let's pretend it's part of the ambiance. I even got a perfect little bird chirp right on queue when I finished, he waited til the end like a good bird to make noise at least, without further ado here's the cover:

I only needed a soul
To share and to hold
But only found this dark hole
Someone unbearably cold

And though I tried to break through
Tried to see what makes you you
You closed the windows and doors
Saw me for only my flaws

They say that time heals all wounds
I can't say from what I've seen that its true
Regrets and pain follow you
Until there's nothing to do

And if my dreams would come true
I'd be there looking at you
And as you start to undo
I'd hold a mirror to you

My only solace is this
You'll never feel such a kiss
You'll never know what you missed
You'll never experience bliss

Thanks, the singer of the original song has quite a deep voice so I kind of had to mess with it to make it sound right. Def check out the original it's a really great song!

It was my first time listening to your acoustic song and I saw your channel on YouTube. You are so good and your music choice is melodramatic. I actually like the tempo, your tone, and sound of guitar are well-mixed together. I'll watch more of your videos later. You're cool!

Thanks I appreciate it, I like to choose more obscure songs when I do covers, maybe can help people discover some new artists ✌️

Your voice is beautifully unique. Just hearing you is like I am transported to a different world. The birds are your backing vocals 😆

I realized after it was close to 5 which I guess is when people are coming back from work, is probably only like 10 cars but that's a lot around here haha, thanks for listening 🎶

What a haunting yet beautiful voice you have in this cover. I do think the natural sounds in the background add to it. The car was almost a spooky wave as you sang hehe! Thank you for sharing your spin on this interesting tune 😁

We're very close to the ocean so it can be clear then the fog can come suddenly, it's definitely a mood lol

You sing soulfully, with a touch of melancholy and sadness. I really liked it. And the background kind is very suitable for your song, such a foggy day. Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful and captivating voice, I loved it from the first seconds. It is also wonderful the play of colors of your Performan the cloudy and your hair making a beautiful contrast has been a pleasure to listen to you.

Hermosa y cautivadora voz, me encantó desde los primeros segundos. También es maravilloso el juego de colores de tu Performan lo nublado y tu cabello haciendo un hermoso contraste ha sido un placer escucharte

Oh yeah you play the guitar and sing beautifully well ..
Had to come check on you when I saw your support. The tag artist and musician had me searching. ..

Such a lyrics, perfect for people who don't appreciate what they have and who loves them.

I often get those bird chirps too, usually just after my intro chords..lol, previously..they often get loud I may re record lol, but now I just leave them to add their tune to the music and sing along.

Thanks Jay! I actually came across your original track yesterday (very beautiful!) because I was trying to find if there was a community or a tag for people making original music that I could follow, sadly there's an inactive songwriter community and a lot of original artists don't use a specific tag lol

Thanks so much.

Oh really.
I also sought for one at a time, but had to settle with openmic, and the themes also serves as anchors for inspiration to flow by.

I ll love to check it out and see too.
