Description
My second collab with Char. featuring her awesome singing & composition. hearing Char's hauntingly beautiful voice gave me chills while I was doing this. Used a couple of loops here; initially just to form a sketch but I liked how they sounded so much, I decided to keep them :0 Hope you guys enjoy this trip hop journey.

Lyrics
Pain
I'm in pain
Pain, when I'm with you
Pain, when I'm all alone
>
Hate,
Is this hate?
Hate that you cheated
Hate 'cause I cry and moan
>
Love,
Is this love?
Love with no answers
Love that's cold as a stone
>
Heart,
Just my heart
Heart that keeps beating
Heart, now stolen, not loaned
>
Pain,
Still in pain
Pain in rememb'ring
Pain clear to the bone
>
Pain,
So much pain

This was so quickly
put together that my head is spinning. I told Mannix that it sounded finished. He is amazing. :)

Pain (Feat. Char)
Wow! Char, don't hold back. Tell us just how you feel! You're really pouring yourself into your lyrics lately. Maybe you always have, but lately it's just so clear and emotional. I take back what I said about "Dust w Symphony 101" being your best vocal to date. This one may be even a little better. And the backing track perfectly fits the mood of the vocal and lyrics.

Yes, the
backing track, built around an acapella... recorded while I listened to nothing...that track is stunningly emotional and evocative. The guy is good and I'm so pleased. :)

Full marks!
This is some of Char's best work and you've used it to full advantage here China. Moodily evocative and some very strong work here in all areas--which I enjoyed completely listening to. I think you two should work on theme-oriented CD compilation one day! Thanks again and take care now, Michael

I feel so woefully inadequate in comparison to all the talented artists on MJ! This song is coming along nicely with superb sounds and hauntingly beautiful vocals. I think there's so much more that could be done lyrically enhance what is an already a very good song, but please take that as a very, very minor critique and not negative in any way.

thanks
I think because of the slow cadence/tempo, it's hard to use that many words in the song. like towards the end, Char sings the word 'pain' for a full 2 bars, I think, & that, to me, were the best notes of the entire tune. but heck, I'm no lyricist so... & thanks again. really appreciate he comment.

I like the chilled vibe on the backer. Nice groove and some cool sound choices. Char, I think this is your best vocal work out of all the ones I've heard.

Why,
thank you so much. It was a quick, acapella, one take... to illustrate a lyric I had. A few hours later, chinaman2 had this made. I was astounded at what he did and I still am. :)

Deep. I love it. This is really awesome. The beat is powerful and the haunting guitar riffs with your haunting vocals fit so perfectly together. This is D/L'ed. Thanks for sharing it.

Very cool
Char's voice is very expressive. She's a diva. She transcends genres. It's amazing how many different styles her voice has been used it.

You've built a great song around her vox. I love those distorted guitars.
