Description
Kind of depressing, slow. I wrote it about a girl, saying things to a guy, I wrote the lyrics over a year ago and then the music a little more then a month ago. I dont know if its about me or just an idea I came up with one day!?!?

Lyrics
Verse 1
It's ok if you don't want, if you dont love me I don't care. I've tried so hard to figure you out, and I havn't gotten anywhere. I've been pushed to far off the edge, your still the same, and I wont change.
Chours*
I don't care if you ever come back, I sure wont be taking you in, you don't think I'm strong enough, but I've got enough inside (2x)
Verse 2
Theres so much time that wont be wasted, so much pain so many tears I've cried, after all you put me through, your running back, after good bye.
Chours*
Bridge*
My bodys feeling weighless, I don't know what is sane, should I let the feelings in, just to hurt me again?
One God, One Love, One Heart I'm dreaming, torn apart from all the pain. Letting go of all the bad times, Won't be let down by you again.
Chours ( 2x)

Terrific!
Katrina you are a tone monster. You sing from the heart and it's very
moving. I like how its just you and the piano: you've exposed your vocals
and your natural gift for phrasing. The variety of sections in the piece is
refreshing: you play with not only harmonic structure but the tempo as
well. Lyrics are, yes, a bit depressing but beautiful as well. Great
songwriting.

Wow
First off - welcome.
Secondly - Wow. What a great voice! So full of emotion and power!
It certainly doesn't hurt that this is a very beautiful, heartfelt song.
With those two qualities combined there's no stopping you.
Beautiful.

very strong
You have a great, expressive singing voice and you really know how to
use it. The piano part is lovely too and well played. Strong songwriting.
While I think this sounds nicely recorded and mixed it has more reverb on
it than I think I'd prefer to hear. I think you could also add a little
something alse to the arrangement, layer in a bit more to let it grow
before coming down again for the end.

Really great work. Glad I found you here on MJ.

Superb
Your voice is incredible. The emotive power, your tone, the phrasing - it's all wonderful.

As this stands, it sounds like a really good demo. I agree with the comments above that it needs some further development. Layered with some judicious background instruments - drum track, strings, maybe even a guitar riff - and you could play this on the radio and have a hit.

Well done.

What they said . . . . .
Nice voice Katrina. I agree with everything said above - except
perhaps about the need for extra instrumentation - very good track
indeed. This sounds like you're using a real piano (you know, wood
and strings), and, although I haven't tried to record one, imagine it
would be quite difficult. I'd really like to hear the piano more clearly,
and maybe a good digital midi soundfont would make it easier for you
to record than using the real thing. I could of course be wrong about
the piano, in which case you probably need to tweak the sound a bit.
There is an Australian pop singer called Delta Goodrem who does
similar things to this, and although I'm not a fan, she is very good at it.
You might find it interesting to have a listen to what she does. You
might also like to listen to Missy Higgins for a different take on the
theme.
From your artist page, I see you are quite young and if this is any
indication of your talent, you have quite an interesting musical future
ahead.
Good work!

What they said . . . . .
I'll jump in regarding the recording side of things. It is a real piano! But
unfortunately, for recording Katrina I only had one half-decent mic and one
battle-worn radio shack mic (nothing against RS). So I used the better mic on
the voice. And because I basically recorded this live (piano and voice at the
same time) any kind of EQ'ing done on the piano track will affect the bit of voice
it caught and vice-versa. I kinda wish I had my keyboard with me at the time,
but it's a learning process to be sure.

raw talent here
this simple offering proves what we all know and sometimes forget...
simple is right when something is performed with passion and talent...
you have a strong sense of melody, and your voice emotes
wonderfully... you make the song believable and deliver with conviction
and strength... you've made a grand entrance... and welcome

what's left to say
... I can only echo the comments here you have a great voice .The thing
that does it for me is that you really wring the emotion out of this song in
a distinctive style.

Great chorus too.

Look forwrd to hearing more of your work, you have something very
special here.

Lots of emotion
Seems this composition feeds on your emotion. This is a powerful tool
and you do well to use it to your advantage. Once again... very nice voice,
you have a lot of control. The piano and your voice work well together. I
feel you have your own style and that is definitely a good thing.

This is lovely
I really admire your pitch; you've got such clear and accurate phrasing and you make it sound almost effortless. This song puts me in mind of a tune from a Broadway musical -- have you ever considered writing for the theatre?

So nice.
Never stop writing Katrina. What an incredible gift you have for someone
your age. It makes all those "popstars" who are packaged and marketed
specifically for selling all the more nauseating. You are the real deal
kiddo, and I'm proud to say that I've heard you live!
Rock on Sandhills Music Festival!
Keep writing, keep singing, keep wowing us all. . .

lots of possiblilities
This works very well as a piano and voice. However, you have lots of
possibilities I hear as you get through the first "I don't care if you ever
come back" on the word come, the music is filled with drums, strings
guitar and bass. You could go in many directions. And I like the idea of
as the song progresses to revert back to the original piano and voice.
Just to provide some dynamics. (bear in mind I also think you do a
super job just as is)
I think there can be a few measures after chorus where there is a brief
musical interlude. A chance for a piano solo,such as you do at the
ending . great song!!

hot vocals
welcome to the party...I like your vocal tone/style and your lyrics are so visual, they bring back memories from my nyc days in little smokey bars. I can hear you dueting with another macjammer,mokus,with a full orhcestra and rock band, both of you are natural singers and I really feel both of you would sound great...thanks 4 the jam

very nice
very nice indeed.. i doubt i could say anything to improve something thats
better than my own work. very different work.

there was an edit that felt a little out of sorts... normally that wouldn't
bother me but you have a beautiful voice and should be accompanied by
decent production
