More about me:
To me, a successful song is one which transports you to the exact place the songwriter was when they wrote it. If I write something after being ignored by some old friend of mine as I'm sitting in a barn, I want the listener in that barn with me, feeling the same feelings.

Way It Might End is awesome.  your voice and playing compliment each other so effortlessly. you're a natural.   I kind of have no comments on the song. If it came on the radio I'd definitely turn it up a notch.  the second verse has so much gas it reminds me of like...early REM or something.  keep it up!
