Description
I Loved this instrumental that Scofugate posted, so I DL'd and kept listening as it really grew on me. My voice has been really rough of late, but I bit the bullet and wrote him, to ask if i could do some lyrics and vocal on his piece. He kindly agreed so I set to work with a few of Scott's suggestions and only a couple of days later here we are. I hope you like this... I do because my voice actually worked LOL, but it took a good swig of Glycerine (smooooooothing) to lubricate my dry throat.

Lyrics
Then There Were Four

People may come, people may go,
Changin’ our lives an’ makin’ it flow,
Liftin’ us up, bringin’ us down,
One minute sad, then wearin’ a crown.

Times in my life I really gave it my all,
With friends on every corner they were havin’ a ball,
Happiness though was only skin deep,
Just a façade; knew it would stall.

Then you came into my li-ife and everything changed for me,
All that had ever been just faded awa-a-a-ay…
As if it had never bee-e-e-en.
All of my past just melted aw-a-a-a-a-ay,

What had been good, was only good for then,
So many people, I’d considered my friends,
They just came and then they went;
Only you were Heaven sent.

Things have changed, time has gone by,
Friends have dwindled, my, oh, my!
But, life has been kind; it brought me you,
And from our love, came another two,

First there was me….. then came you….
Love knocked at the door…..
Then there were….. four.


Music and backing…. Scott Fugate
Lyrics and Vocals…. Maurice Vizard

I just loved this
instrumental the minute I heard it and it kept running round in my mind Feter with it's sauntering rhythm. I had an idea of the words I wanted to write and when I asked Scott what his ideas were, they were very similar to what I'd had in mind. I think they fit very well with the mood of the music too, thanks a lot Feter for you words, regards M

Yes John, whatever it takes and believe me, I've taken some weird and wonderful concoctions over the years.... but it's always 'horses for courses' with regards to the medicine. Might have known you too would spot a good instrumental backing.... thanks for listening, regards M

Thanks Roxie
nice of you to listen and as you say it IS a love song, though until the last verse and ending it doesn't come across as that..... my voice sounds different on this I think, as I used a different echo effect to better suit the song and backing, so thanks again for the nice words, regards M

Bravo Maurice
What a wonderful song - sensitive performance in the beginning and towards the end, and powerful epic rock stuff in the middle part -
wonderful lyrics, excellently delivered, a gorgeous colorful arrangement.
Very fine stuff!!

Lovely, Maurice
Isn't it wonderful how something can grab you like that and not let go until you've added a piece of yourself to it? And then, of course, you have to set it free to see if it can grab somebody else. Magic.
Cheers.

Moviz said 2930 days ago (September 11th, 2009)
It sure is Richard
When I heard the music I just kept getting a rhythm of how the words would fit, but at that point I hadn't begun to think of a subject. When I did, I asked Scott what he thought the subject should be and strangely enough his ideas coincided with what I had thought.... then it all seemed to fall into place. Thanks for listening Richard and for the nice comment.... glad you like it, regards M

Doug Somers said 2929 days ago (September 12th, 2009)
Such a range of emotions
come up for me as I listen to this song. It has a gentle lilting quality with the 12/8 timing, and uses this base to grow from a welcoming intro to a powerful rockin' middle to the final very touching close. It's quite the journey all in such a short space, and yet the different parts meld together beautifully. This is a magical collab and shows that 1+1>3.

Cheers lads,
Doug

I just
loved that middle the first time I heard it and it was just right for when I wrote the lyrics. The backing is the strong part in this though, especially the drums, which dictate the steady plod forward. Thanks Doug, it's nice to get your approval on this and i'm really pleased you like it, regards M

digitalnirvana9 said 2928 days ago (September 13th, 2009)
Excellent Collaboration!
Maurice, This is right up there with your very best and congratulations to Scofugate for the excellent sound bed.... Did you paint the cover too? The only thing I would suggest is a little less delay/echo on your voice to give it a tad more presence.... a nit pick for sure, but hey, thats why we're here.... Great job buddy! Peace

Glad
you think so Norman and thanks a lot for the listen. No, I didn't paint it, i just whapped a pic into photoshop and 'voila'! Hardly any echo though,except in the middle heavier part; but double tracked and slightly overlapped, to hopefully bring my vocals into the 21st century to fit the song. Thanks again Norman for listening and your positive comment, cheers M

How do you do that?
Maurice,
You are a man of many talents! Here I was expecting one of your sweet, nostalgic numbers...and you ROCK, man, with this soundbed and some poignant lyrics all delivered with panache and power. Amazing. I loved this. To have built this off of a somewhat unrelated instrumental track and then morphed it into a powerful song is a feat of magic. Congratulations to both of you.
Peace.
Paul

What a great song
The opening bars made want to hear more. How cool this song builds. From the quite laid back start to the rockin' bridge and back again. Maybe the bridge/refrain could be repeated in the end?

Very cool to hear you sing this one Maurice. Impressive to hear you do this style with such ease.

Maurice: I was quite touched by the honesty and true feeling behind this. The way the lyric works up to the last line is marvelous.

Felt the backing tracks and voxs were fighting against each other a bit. But that's probably because it was first done instrumentally I assume. Great collab, btw.

Moviz said 2927 days ago (September 14th, 2009)
Hi John
Thanks for the call........ Yes, the way I had to write the lyrics was to work toward what Scott had already titled the tune, so I started writing with that in mind and it just turned out right that it came at the very end. You might have got that feeling about the vox backing combination, because I was trying to 'merge' the vox sound with what was already recorded in the backing. I tried a few sounds and decided that this one was the best of the bunch, regards M

You did a good job in turning the instrumental into a song. It sounds like the song was written with these words from the beginning.

The music was already posted here by Scofugate and I just did the lyrics and vocal, but what I liked was the more up to date feel than my other songs (I'm stuck in some kind of musical time warp I think), so it was great for singing along to, cheers M
