Lyrics
Nothing

whistling firs bow low to the wind
catch a falling star from the skies

hear the whispered prayer begin
sense a million songs in your eyes

she only sings to get away
when things seem hopeless and there's nothing left to say

the whistling wind takes her away
there's nothing i can do to try to make her stay

(c)2007 Bill Grundmann

better!
Nicer mix than the prior... the singing feels better seated in the mix, but still remains clear and un-muddied. *insert prior kudos here*
ttfn,
Drakonis

thanks for swaying me into fixing the mix. i was experimenting with some very simple post-GarageBand mastering software, and ran afoul of an unexpected side-effect of non-linear peak rounding: it lets you turn up the gain, but it also relatively enhances the bass. you live and you learn...

this is
really great, a lot to digest here. i think this needs to go on the ipod and get a serious listen. very different for you, i really love those back-up vox.

Another one...
...for the headphones! Love the almost haiku-like lyrics. This is good music Bill. Really dig the arrangement. Mix is superb. Glad i found this one!

Be well friend!

i decided to enter this tune into a contest at OurStage. http://www.ourstage.com/fanclub/smokeyvw

i'm happy to hear that you picked up the poetic meter on the lyrics - i wasn't thinking haiku, just going for simplicity...

thanks

Cool mix
Neat contrast between the opening vocals and your own singing. I love the tinkly piano, too.

i think the contrast might also enhance the sense of isolation between the people in this. this is a sort of "torch song" with a tinge of hopelessness.

thanks

Kudos Bill :-)
It is better. I don't know why the lyrics make me think of the title of one of Maya Angelou's books - and a line from another more recent song - "Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end."

Luv, Lil' Sis CJ (aka Angel)

this tune is mostly dwelling on an "ending" - but i suppose it might form half of a nice pair of bookends with some other tune about a "beginning" - hmmm... gotta think about that...

thanks
