Description
When she's gone, I think only of her.

Thanks to Jim from The Infinites who finally gave this song what it needed - a voice.

Lyrics
(These are the lyrics that I originally wrote for this song, but haven't used yet)

A light glows bright when she is near
And when she’s gone it disappears
She smells like rain and colored flowers
He could watch her float for hours

When she’s gone it hurts like fever
Burning lonely aching fever
Want to bury my dead heart
That longs for her and falls apart

Away the Raven

Black as hair and green as eyes
Electrostatic dream surprise
The rainbow at the pot of gold
The colors beautiful behold

Under her wings she loves the sky
Above the clouds so far up high
So near to God and flying closer
I believe that Heaven knows her

Away the Raven

Taste the sweet hot burning kisses
When she’s gone it’s what he misses
In the dark he stumbles for
The shadows she had left before

When she flies back home to him
The light inside will glow again
His head will reign like fragrant showers
Begging for her secret powers

Away the Raven

good lyrics!
Love the imagery in them. This'll sound really good done. There is
some crackling, but it doesn't detract much.

good lyrics!
the levels sounded pretty good in GB but when they were imported into iTunes I
noticed the crackle. I'm still refining it so one day you'll listen and it will be
gone! (Hopefully)

Thanks Stun. If you feel monotone, give it a shot. I'd be honored.

You know, maybe I will some day... currently, however, my set up
doesn't easily allow this. I use GarageBand at work and can't record
vocals there. I have used my vocals in one of my tunes, but I recorded
them on video, extracted them in iMovie usind Wiretap, and then
imported them inro GarageBand. When this happens, for some reason,
the speed is slowed down slightly, so I wouldn't be able to sing along to
an existing song. Confusing, eh? I will keep this in mind, though!

kickin'
im asked me to check this out - what a great track (although it distorts quite a bit!). Really meaty, beefy bass and drums .... you gotta finish this Bob, sounds like a pop classic!

The days before EQ
Hey Steve,

Honestly, I didn't know anything about GB when I wrote this tune. Levels? What are levels? I hoped that one day, someone like yourself would come to my rescue on this cool song of mine. Personally, it is my favorite of my songs, even incomplete. I liked the lyrics, but couldn't even begin to do anything with the vocals. Jim took care of that and maybe his version is the pop classic.

band file on demand!

You do yourself a dis-service - this sounds great!
I've been off work today with food poisoning (nice), and didn't do any work on our collab this weekend, as I got inspired and wrote another song, which sounds like A-ha covering 'Danny Boy' - I don't know if it's genius or crap. Will be in touch soon!

just
back for the infinites version, I had to check this again. Though it goes over in the red, this is one of your finest melodies, beautifully brooding and one of your more poetic lyrics.

Brooding
Thanks for listening CJ. I really appreciate the comments. I only wish I had the knowledge to mix those meaty guitars properly the first time. Maybe this song wouldn't have sat in the dust for so long!

One bad Mofo!
This is music straight from the funky part of town, I got my fuzzy dice and my convertible is jumping top down with this blasting, heavenly scene

This is good... for vampire music. I'm really, really digging this. So many gems to mine in the 5EA catacombs. What happened to the Infinites version of this?

I'm no longer sitting in front of my computer every day, so I no longer have the pleasure of listening to the best original music ever. It's hit or miss with MacJams these days. I try to get on to listen and comment and too often the site is down. I'... [see more]
