Music Composers Unite!

This is a relativly new song. I have had some challenges with it, because I don't know how to make the arrangement I want.
Is suppose to be a lament somehow, very slow ballade.
I do try to avoid making my songs similar to eachother though, so on this song I have focused on classical sounds, like strings/cello/harp.
I also realized that less is more (I have tried drums/Bass) But it seems I fall back to my original idea.

Again I try to sing here I have actually a choir on the last part, but I don't know is a nice effect that you barely can hear it, or if I should turn up the volume, a little afraid the main vocal will "drown" in the choir part.

As you can hear the Lyrics is a little sad is based on a fictional story related to the fantasy-game I playing, so do not mind the lyrics to much..

I like your voice and would like to hear more of it, and with a little less reverb.

Achazia, Why are you holding back?

2:23 your vocal opened up a little and it sounded deep and rich. Use it. 

Try de-essing to control the sibilance. The verb is too saturated on the lead vocal and it loses presence. Would have loved more dynamics/breathe in the harp (light, weaving silence). I agree that less is more. Watch your sonic budget (upper mids). You have a lot of room to play with. Overall structure is sweet. lyrical and your musical style is extremely natural.
