This song proves that to get an emotional message across, one does not need to scream out the lyrics. The song is laden with understated, emotional power, and is driven by a very simplistic, yet completely brilliant musical score. The piano playing is clear and almost minimal in it's musical approach to the beat/drive of the song. The vocals are perfectly pitched and the voice phrasing and timbre are very well done, and in perfect harmony with the song. This song proves that minimal instrumentation is in good order for a song to work .The only ''snag'' could be that it is a bit too long for radio if ever you want to pitch it to the stations. All in all an excellent song that is destined to take you far, keep up the good work. David

A First Class execution that resonates with the words twinned with lyrics. Message of this song is you got to keep the Rule #1 Don't let anyone steal your wind or fire! This song really helps me see things clearly when it comes to being you, don't let the hangers on suck you dry and steal your light! A bit like Dua Lipa's song "I've Got My Rules!" I love it! Keep putting this out there, you surely have a Hit Song. I don't know who the vocalist is but she has an amazing talent and unique voice.

This will be a review on what I can realistically make comments on. The lyrics are problematic due to the fact that they are in French and I am not conversant in the language.
The structure of the song is nicely done. It flows from section to section well. Your writing has grown in that regard...Well done!
The melody is pleasing and works well with the harmony of the song. I like the simplicity of the track a lot and your singing feels in the pocket to me.
One thing...... if it were me I might look at is the lower interval limits of the piano part....the piano chords at times, gets very bass heavy (muddy) which to my ears acts as a distraction. Perhaps an inversion of the chord you're utilizing might help.
The prosody feels good (marriage of the words to the music) and the listener is not distracted by the writer trying to make the words "fit" in with the music.
This is a much stronger effort than the last song I reviewed of yours and shows growth on your part as a writer. As I stated earlier it's problematic for me to give a complete review due to the language issue.
Good work overall and keep writing!

I never expected such high quality nor to be taken on such a powerful journey. This is very cinematic music. I see a cafe in the sticks or a sweeping landscape in view with a car and a sad woman driving down the highway alone after a tough journey. Very beautiful. A moving evocative piece of sophisticated music. It is sailing music too. Soaring. Uplifting. When the chorus and harmonies come in I was equally surprised. Thank you and blessings to you.
