Lyrics
You don't make me cry.
No, not anymore.
You smile like a sigh.
You laugh like a closed door.

Start now.

I am here for you,
but you're not any fun.
What do you want to do?
I give you to the count of one.

Start now.

like
a spring breeze. Since its like 5 degrees here, and I just came from shoveling snow, its a joyous morning treat. Lovely voice Estella. Putting that Dulcimer to great use.

Snow!
It was 80 degrees here in Southern California! Glad I could send the warmth your way.

Bundle up!

(I was listening to our "Metamorphoses" collab today. That was so lovely of you to do!)

Lovely
simply lovely. There's just so much good about this song, that I feel like all the technical things I could say about how you could change it are just dwarfed by your talent. I had some ideas but maybe I'll just send you a note... :)

Thank you for saying that. Believe me, I hear every fault times 10, so you saying that the talent has redeeming value, well, it gives me some hope!

Thanks for the note!

Better
I like the beginning, thrown right into the song and the story. I did like the previous version a lot, but this is an improvement. You're voice is breath taking. The lyrics are masterfully crafted. I am a big fan of your now.

Poetess!
You laugh like a closed door - wonderful! Your voice (and harmonies) sound great, and the song is direct and to the point... I'm tempted to ask you to send me the file just so I can play with it (I can hear strings), but it'd be like 6 months before I would work on it ....

Wow Estellie,

That last vocal note is superb! All parts before it it are just as wonderful.

It's nice to see how well you preserved the original design of the song. You can play dulcimer in my band (oh, and sing too!)

Dulcimer
Just so you know, I went out and bought a dulcimer to today because of you. I love your voice - it becomes even richer when you harmonize. Ever try a third or even a fourth harmony? Might be fun to experiment with. Fantastic work all around, estellie.

What a compliment!
Enjoy that dulcimer! And let me know when you've posted a song with it! I love mine, and I'm glad the sound inspired you.

I used to sing in a quartet in high school. I love finding harmonies. I might tap into that part of me, now that you mention it...

Thanks for listening!

Dulcimer
I don't know if I successfully became a fan (I pressed the heart), but I am a fan! The dulcimer sounds great and so does your voice. I like this second version better than the first. The beautiful soprano vocals are really emotionally evocative, and putting it in less is more effective.

Just so you know, I have mixed this more properly, so that it is more pleasant to the ears. That version is here:

nice work
I like the simplicity you stuck with on this. Nice performance on the vocals and harmonies too. I like the dulcimer, I need some other stringed instruments beside my guitar.

a breeze
I love your lyrical conceits of smiling "like a sigh" and the count of one.

Your singing here is like a breeze, chasing a breeze.

Hmm...
I'm starting to wonder that, too ;)

Can't seem to find my old notes, but I'm getting read to jump back in. I'm setting up my equipment tomorrow, and letting her rip. I'll be taking this summer off, so hopefully you'll see more of me then.

I'm so glad for your encouragement.

Thank you!
