Well. Since the user is semi-retired, i'll be handling the review alone. Any help will be gladly received.

Review[edit]

First comments[edit]

  • Lead paragraph too large; I split it into two.
  • Moved sample to thcomposition section.
  • Deleted redundance "3:50 (3 minutes, 50 seconds)" >> "three minutes and 50 seconds."
  • "The song was composed in the key B minor using common time" >> "The song was composed on common time in the key..."

Prose comments[edit]

Cover
  • I think that this is a cover from Leona, this song was written by Jörgen Elofsson, but for Darin Zanyar, a swedish singer, in 2006 for his album "Breaking the news".
  • I suggest you include Darin as an original performer — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ha kam ash (talkcontribs) 22:33, 28 June 2013 (UTC)
Composition
  • "to come home to where she is waiting for him, but feels homeless without him."
  • Some redundant use of "him". May recommend change the second "him" with "his presence"
  • "The opening lyrics are "Wait here for you to call me/ For you to tell me that ev'rything's a big mistake."
  • Propose a change to "The song opens with Lewis singing..."; and, however, this sentence seems to be an orphan, not connected woth the rest of the paragraph. Which is the importance of it?
  • It's the composition section, I'm just saying what the opening lyric is. Nothing wrong with that. AaronYou Da One
Reception
  • "Nick Levine for Digital Spy described Lewis's vocals in the lyric "In this cold I'm walking aimless, feeling helpless" as "a tour de force of despair and misery"
  • Some bad wording.
  • Lewis's >> Lewis'.
  • "Although he thought that the song was "almost unbearably bleak","
  • Redundant use of –though/t?
  • The critical section is lacking some order. The sentences seemed to be separate statements rather than a whole paragraph. It needs cohesiveness between the sentences.
Tracklisting
  • Why it has two versions on the TL? They're musically different? Or just on different albums?
Charts
  • "debuted at number 173 on the strength of digital download sales..."
  • "on the strength"?

That's all for now. —Hahc21 [TALK][CONTRIBS] 01:18, 15 June 2012 (UTC)
