This is bugging me so much
 
Hi guys,

Sorry not really a technical question but relevant all the same, does anyone know the exact lyrics to the demo song 'Everything' by Little Jinder for version 6 onwards?

I'm using the vocal as part of my coursework for University and need to know to avoid plagiarism etc and I've only managed to decipher about half of them because I swear I keep hearing a different line every time I listen to it.

Would greatly appreciate if anyone knows? I've searched the highs and lowes of the web to no avail :(

I soloed the vocals and turned off all of the insert and send effects, and here's what it sounds like to me:

All I had
I kept my head high
not to lose myself

All I had
I let you have me
so now I hate myself

While you fled
to places in your mind
I did not know of
(It's hard to forgive)

While you fled
from things you wouldn't share
I slowly faded
(It's hard to forgive)

All I felt
You wanted me to hurt
Oh I wasn't built for this

You were my everything

I should also point out a couple of little things in case you really want to make sure you have it exactly right.

There is an effect (I think it was a reverb/delay if I remember correctly) recorded into the vocal track on the "it's hard to forgive" lines that makes hard to tell for sure what is being said. It also sounds a little like "it's hard to forget" and in fact it *could* even be a combination of the two and an intentional blurring of the word, but I'm not sure.

I went with "forgive" because that's what it sounds most like to me.

Also at the beginning, "I kept my head high not to lose myself" is what it sounds like, but "I kept my head high enough to lose myself" also makes sense there, it's a bit more natural sounding sentence, and it's similar enough that it could be the right lyric.

The T sound from the "to" after it is what makes it difficult to tell. The "t" in "not", if it actually is there, is not emphasized. If you sing "not to" and try to make a distinct and clear T sound at the end of "not" you'll see why. :)

So what I posted before is still my best guess at it, but you might want to solo the vocal track, take off the effects and listen to it yourself too, and then judge those two questionable bits for yourself.

I never really understood the "while you fled" part back then. Thanks gwyn! :)
