Great improvement, everything is loooot better! :-)

I don't really wanna come with hints, you will improve a lot just by 
continuing what you do, just as you've showed compared with the first mix. 
Well.. you can do some automation on the vocal, her voice (words) disapears in 
one or two places and maybe you can turn the guitar just a little bit up 

Rember to allways use the hipass filter on every track, that alone make the 
mix sound clearer. Try > 50 on drums, 40-50 on bass, 80 on guitar possibly 130 
on voice, try and test. Remember that hints, meanings on the 'Net and what 
others are saying are (often subjective) directions, you are the boss! :-)

I like the track, just keep on the good working :-)
