Over the Sea

Description
This is a song that i wrote and recorded a couple of years ago, for my beloved. At the time i wrote it, we had never met in real life. He is a musician and we found each other through (ahem) one of those "other" mac music community sites. :D

He lives in Tasmania and i was finally able to travel there and stay with him for a while. I returned earlier this month and, honestly, i'm pretty down.

It's a song about longing, but in a hopeful, good way, i guess. Unlike some of my other songs that are about longing and yearning but in a kind of despondent way. So... maybe because i am feeling melancholy and the aching and longing have returned, maybe i am looking to this song to make that longing more hopeful... ?

Anyway, even though this is an older song of mine, it is so relevant for me right now and i've not been able to come up with any new tunes, and i've not uploaded anything to MacJams for a long time, and i guess i just need to feel part of things in some small way.

Lyrics
Through the twinkling night
My heart is pulling
Like a kite
Could it sail me over the sea?
Would you be waiting there for me?
You're a full ocean from me

Yes
I do believe love is magical
So feel me in the wind

I love you...

Over the sea
My love is over the sea

Ooh...

I love you...

ooooh, more SlumbySongs!
So nice to hear an update from you, and potentially upbeat info at that! As always, a catchy tune, especially the rather Enya-esque sounding chorus. Crisp mix with the drums, sounds great. Thank you for sharing your music and heart here, and best wishes for love!
ttfn,
Drakonis

Always look forward to Slumberyness!
This is simply magical. I'm really liking the way that you used your voice and the subtle melodic shifts in the section between the percussive parts give me the tingles!

Here's hoping that the two of you can spend more time together soon.

Fantastic
Love the start Miri - when you begin to sing just sounds so amazing!.. Love the sounds you make - a little Enya as Eduard said and also a little Kate Bush (both very good things from my point of view). I hope everything works out for you guys.

All good - nicely uplifting.

:)

Very unique song....
I don't hear Enya at all... I hear an icelandic band call Mum, a bit of Kate Bush and the Cocteau Twins. and a dash of the Cranes.... this is all very complimentary as I a big fan of them all. I have come to your songs later than most... but I am really enjoying them... very organic sound and instinctive vocalizations...

More than a dash ..

.. of Kate Bush to me... with a bit of Enya (that more when the drums comes in from the stabby harmonies ..but I was still thinking 'running up that hill'). Simply marvelous. Such a warm mix .. and you certainly know where to place things around in the stereo field and just the right amount of effects on the vocals.. fantastic choice of instrumentation too. Brilliant.

Beautiful production, and such clever, unconventional chord changes. Really masterful, all around, full of attention to details, but always with your uniquely charming voice out front. Wonderful.

I love your
dreamy slightly 'off centre' (in a very nice way) style of music... this is just wonderful with those changes of chords and rhythms and your style of singing, Really nice to see you around again and I hope you find a way to be with your love on a more permanent basis, regards M

Good mix here.
Congrats on a good one!! :o)

Don't be downhearted
Love is far stronger than the physical distance across oceans, slumbs, and longing is the sweetest kind of pain ... but you don't need me to tell you that. You have expressed it succinctly here with a tingling blend of yearning, joy and an understanding of the things which transcend time and place. I wish you and your partner all the best in sustaining that magic which knows no earthly bounds. And in the mean time it's wonderful to see you posting again.

Best love,
Rebsie

heavenly
You sound like a tricky angel who I may or may not be able to trust. Like you might lead my down an incredibly magical path and then I find out you were a figment of my imagination and I've wound up in the darkest most horrific hole where nobody knows I am. This feeling came with a sinister minor chord about a minute in. Your voice is very unique sounding to me.

T_Being_esq said 3045 days ago (May 23rd, 2009)
Yes I would agree
A little Enya and Kate bush, plus some of the anarchy of Bjork. Above all though it is you and captures the almost angiush of long distance love perfectly. You could return to your music box at the end slowly winding down.

Unique
I don't understand what you say in your bio about not being very skilled. Coming up with a song like this! It is very special and I'm sure you know what you do, musically.
I have to get used to how you use your voice, though. It sounds a bit child-womanlike and that is something which usually doesn't appeal to me. But it sure adds to the special atmosphere of your music. I just listened to your Mr. Johnson song and there it fits perfectly well, combined with your lyrics. Hmm, maybe I should just check out some more of your songs. Please keep up sharing!

Sirens of Purgatory
I don't know how i missed this... I have you on my fav alert list... yet this post is several months old... i know I've dropped off quite a bit... that aside...

this is being described by several folks here as more hopeful and uplifting... this does not strike me that way at all... somber resignation or a forced attempt a thinly veiled happiness... but there is that haunted quality that has your thumbprint all over it... a Siren calling from some netherworld... between the waking and the sleeping... not quite dangerous... not quite safe...a
