Description
It’s as though my songs follow the rhythm of a dance it seems, ‘Slow, slow, quick, quick, slow’. Well my last two were quick ones, so here’s a song that should bring a sense of relaxation, since it’s an emotional song about laying awake in the night, with thoughts running through ones head (we’ve probably all had such sleepless nights). In some ways it’s more like a soliloquy about lost love.
I love the sound of the electric piano, as to me, it’s the perfect musical sound for depicting moonlight and I added it, after initially intending to use just guitar as accompaniment. Also, I find it very difficult to sing to a track of guitar that’s played so loosely and in an ad lib style, because of the difficulty in timing. I think I managed it here though and hope you listen and like what I tried to do here, M.

Lyrics
You And You Alone

Moonbeams lighting up the room as in my bed I laze,
Brighten all my sleepless nights, enhancing where I gaze,
The pictures at my bedside in the blue tint moonlit haze,
Remind me of the times that we once shared.

Dancing on the ceiling, the reflections move and sway,
Rolling back so many thoughts and memories I have saved,
Of times we also danced and swayed, beneath a silvery light,
The scent of jasmine flowers filled the night.

Chorus/bridge
Now you’re gone, yes you’re gone,
Will we ever meet again?
All I know is though you are gone,
In my heart you will remain.

Now sleepless though my nights may be and memory filled, it’s true,
Every thought of you I have will always see me through,
From Moonlight into daylight and through every day I live,
It’s to you and you alone, my love I give.

Repeat Chorus/bridge

Now sleepless though my nights may be and memory filled, it’s true,
Every thought of you I have will always see me through,
From Moonlight into daylight and through every day I live,
It’s to you and you alone, my love I give…..
It’s to you and you alone, my love I give.

Maurice Vizard.

Applause for Big M!
You did a wonderful job on this--melodically, in feeling, it reminds me a little bit of an old standard called "Lullaby of the Leaves"--melancholic yet hopeful. Great lyrics, wonderfully sung and it's a beauty. Thank you!

Gosh Maurice
I have no idea how you guys put songs like this together. It's so simple, yet clever. Perfect timing, and just the right amount of melancholy bitter-sweet! I wish I could sing like this, really.

comment Dave LOL You've no idea what that does for my confidence, just when I was wishing I had a little more breath. I think it's more a case of setting the mood than being clever and sympathetic chords like minors and major sevenths help. Thanks a lot for those words, regards M

michaelkoppenheffer said 2730 days ago (April 5th, 2010)
your electric piano sound
is perfect for this song, enhancing the already haunting melody and vocal performance. This song has a floating feeling that you managed to balance quite nicely--I know as well from experience that it's really hard to multitrack to a loosely phrased guitar performance!
Check out my latest song called Till the Tap Runs Dry (album version)
Moviz said 2730 days ago (April 5th, 2010)
Glad you
agree Michael about the piano sound... and yes, I wanted that floaty half- asleep, reverie sort of feel that you imply. Nice to know too that others have that timing difficulty. Thanks for the nice words, regards M

michael2 said 2730 days ago (April 5th, 2010)
nice
very easy to relate to the subject matter. great lyrics and vocal performance. follows the guitar well; know what you mean about how sometimes it's hard to follow a certain style guitar. in my head I hear another version of this: just acoustic gtr, voice, and a trumpet every once in awhile. seriously. great track.

Moviz said 2730 days ago (April 5th, 2010)
These days
I don't have problems of not sleeping I must say Michael. In fact it's the reverse;I can't keep my eyes open half the time LOL. Really pleased you understood the subject matter though and that you like the song. As I said above and agree with you, it's very hard to get the timing on some styles without a strict tempo of some kind. It's run through my mind to do an up tempo version of this too, and that could easily include a trumpet or two, cheers M

Moviz said 2729 days ago (April 6th, 2010)
Hi Gaylen
Glad you got the mood... thanks for listening. I think you have passion, which is another branch of emotion, though I'm sure you could do mellow as well. I never had a strong voice like you to get the passion across, so always had to rely on getting the emotion across in a different way... and these days there's not the amount of breath I once had LOL, regards M

it all comes together and it fits...
... the who that i'm finally getting around to reading about in your bio... what you tend to always display, in choice of tones, inflections, technique and of all that i've heard of what tends to inspire you enough to notate... it all seems to be of a direct path from a good heart! always coming across as being quite personable w/ a heaping dose of grace in your comments and really, of everything that i've come to know of you via the limitations of this virtual existence... i guess that it should be of no surprise that it always turns up in your music! Intimate, warm and truly Special, is how i've had you and your music packaged, but this piece really brings it all together to become the ribbon that tightly bounds that image together, in my humbled little scattering space. a neat package of timeless value, i'd say. Thanks for nurturing your talents and having a willingness to hang it all out to share in this way, Maurice! Dion

Moviz said 2729 days ago (April 6th, 2010)
Wow! Dion,
I'm almost of a mind to set music to those very, very kind and poetic (even) words.... I can only say thank you... for listening to my music and taking the time to read my bio, as well as sussing out so warmly what makes me 'tick'. To me the biggest part of anyone is in their humility, so when you say your 'humble little scattering space' that means to me, you've got such a big heart.... Thank you again, regards M

BirdmanWayne94 said 2726 days ago (April 9th, 2010)
This has...
... a great "timeless" feel. Fantastic songwriting and performance. Everything about this song is great but as a guitarist, I'd have loved to hear a different rhythm to fit with the electric-piano. But again, I really love this song and I'm offering the critique for more improvements maybe.

Shades of Leonard Cohen here I think. Very nice song - I particularly like the descending chords at 2.20ish. And, you know, I didn't notice there was no drum track until near the end!

I wanted that half awake dreamy moonlight feel, so that's why I used the faltering ad lib rhythm without drums.... and those descending chords just put me in mind of when the moon mysteriously appears and disappears behind the clouds sending moving shadows slowly across the ceiling... glad you liked that sound, regards M

A virtual $10 for your tip jar.
It (subject) line isn't much but I hope it covers the gas money. This is classic, right out of a '60s or '70s soundtrack of love lost and found, albeit not in that desired order... yet. Beautiful arrangement and performances. I'm curious what kind of piano you've got here... not listed under "hardware," which is where I suppose we could put that info.

You And You Alone
Maurice I think this is the kind of tune I enjoy the most from you. Romantic, slow, hints of sadness - of loss, but yet fond memory. This one really sounds like it comes from the heart. I love that vibrato in your voice - perfect for this song. Very nice - quite an enjoyable listen.

Thanks, as well, for stopping by my last song. That, and your nice comments are much appreciated. And, my friend, who would I be to complain about how long it took you to say hi - it is always a pleasure.

Thanks again,
