Lyrics
Losing The Fever

It breaks me when I hurt you
It kills me when you smile
If we don't live forever
Lets stay here for a while
My angel strayed from heaven
She broke the rules and flew
From the towers of the holy
To the common ground below

CHORUS

Now shes losing the fever
And its like the first time
When we were running together
Through the cities of fire

Its only when the winter
Lays me down to rest
That I can feel your heartbeat
Brighter than the rest
And living it aint easy
When theres no time left to play
As we escape the circles
Theres no time left to play

Now shes losing the fever
And its like the first time
When we were running together
Through the cities of fire
And it calls me from somwhere
They really know how to love
And they listen to your fears
As they reign from above

They're sailing through light years
They turn around time
They open your eyes wide
To the emotional signs
Now were losing the fever
And its like the first time

Bit of an epic
but very involving with some nice touches and the sort of clever arrangements I expect from you!

I liked the lyrics but I'm probably misreading them as I'm getting a sense of regret coming through against a very positive musical statement.

Good to see you again!

Cheers

Smokin'
Great structure as usual, you really have a knack for building up a song as it moves along.

Sounds like you had a lot of fun with this one. The keyboards are smokin'! Lots of variety and riffs interwining with each other. Even better the second listen. The soft keyboards at the end are flawless.

I want to offer something critical but it would be so nit-picky I'd just sound like I need something to bitch about.

I find this
I find this soooo welcome .. so glad to have gotten from you a new song so filled with the true paddler-originality that I have come to love so much. I give you lots of cori-fans for this one. Such a strong creation. Why don't the world yet know of your genious? You should be played on every channel.

Marvelous arrangement; the chorus
really opens out and you make great use of the double tracked vocals. And I really like your casual and unforced vocal tone on this song overall. Agree with the other commenters--this has an almost commercially accessible feel, but it's nonetheless distinctive and engaging. And I'm a sucker for synthpop--great work.

i'm not actually sure what electropop is - i always got inspired by kate bushes minimal approach to using samples tho - thank you - yes - i used to double track all vocals - took me a while to 'use' the technique as enhancement

Pete's right...
...about your abilities with structure....

Structure and melody and just a way of stepping out of the box and doing things that sound fresh while being anchored in the familiar.

Starts with an almost Leonard Cohen cadence and phrasing and vocal tone.... and combines 60's, 70's and 80's elements in a neat way... building up in a neat way...

If Leonard Cohen had written 'Hey Jude', it would sound like this...

Love those low 'ooh, ooh, ooh's left and right...

Fever
Glad to have you back! Love your singing here and the sparkly chorus. Billy Bragg meets Peter Gabriel at the Paddler Ranch. Dig the synth and keys breakdown section. This is such a broad and bright canvas--both poppy and funky.

shades
of Leonard Cohen from the first bar. maybe it's the deep tonality of your lead vocals. Glad to hear you back. We all go through dry spells. It's to be expected of creative folks. Don't fret you have contributed some of the most memorable stuff on MJ IMHO. I'm sure you have lots more inside. This cut is no exception. Very sparse and controlled. As usual the choices made in instruments, drums and key/synth tones is brilliant. Thanks for the great song P.

Really well written song that just gets more and more infectious as it plays. Great instrumental build-ups and arrangement. Love the way your vocals/harmonies change as it goes too.

Yes
I can hear Kate Bush mixed with a little Genesis almost. No obvious comparisons, which is why it is so good. Fresh, original, perfect.

Nice one Richard
I really like the tune, and your performance and production sound good - not sure about the choice of drum kit (although I realise it's "electropop"). I think it could have maybe been much stronger with a more traditional rhythm section. Bloody good tune though. Glad to see you back at MJ. Excellent keys.
Cheers from Oz,

Richard
Nice to see a new song by you. I know how life crowds out the soul. I think it happens too often. This has a really nice mix of electronica with the piano. Has a melancholy feel to it. As in everything you write there is so much emotion and musicianship together.
Thanks again,
Stephen
