Description
We met Nigel Hardy thru a ZOOM forum with Dick Langford.
He offered Sis and me this beautiful piano - and we each worked on our version without hearing the other's.
I posted Marty's YOU STILL HAUNT ME recently - http://www.macjams.com/song/64547- and this is my take - Anne
THANK YOU, NIGE!

Lyrics
I CAN'T FIND A WAY
(Anne Cozean 2010)

I CAN'T FIND A WAY
TO MAKE THIS WORK
TO MAKE THIS PAY
IN THE COLD BRIGHT LIGHT OF DAY
WE SEEM JUST AS SAD
JUST AS GREY

IS THERE MORE THAT I COULD DO
IS IT JUST SOMEBODY NEW
IS THIS SOMETHING WE SHOULD FOLLOW THROUGH

I DON'T THINK I CAN STAY
I'VE LOST MY TRUST
I FEEL BETRAYED
THE FACTS MUST ALL BE WEIGHED
BUT THE LOVE WE HAD
FEELS THROWN AWAY

IS THERE SOMETHING I COULD DO
MAYBE YOU COULD LEAVE A CLUE
IS OUR DEMISE SIMPLY OVERDUE

I CAN'T FIND A WAY
I CRY ALL NIGHT
I CRY ALL DAY
I CAN'T FIND A WAY TO LIVE MY LIFE AGAIN
ALONE
WITHOUT YOU

I CAN'T FIND A WAY
Very tasty melody choices on top of this poignant backer. I especially like the ascending phrase on "CAN'T FIND A WAY TO LIVE MY LIFE AGAIN". The vocals are beautiful.

Complementary
I really like your vocals. The excellent piano work is enhanced by your song and your song. The quality of the the recording is also uniformly good. Thanks.

thank you, peter
i'm not a very good mixtress - so to have uniformity pointed out is great to hear,
cuz it's not easily achieved when we redo a phrase or word a ridiculous number of times.
thanks so much,
a

deja vu
only in its simple beauty. So much talent with you two. Thank you for not asking me to choose :-) Moving & heartfelt lyrics. Its getting so that I hear big time recording artists and start thinking "hey, they sound like Anne".

again, hats off to Nigels exceptional track. Killer progression.

you know sis and i have a reputation for slathering everything we do with copious amounts of harmony. but for both of us, Nigel's piano track was so rich and lush, it would have been like pouring graving on a delicate icing. thanks for comin round!

Beautiful
I dig this one. Beautiful! Do you mind a suggestion? If so, stop reading here :)

I would suggest to have piano and drums mixed more to the backgrund so the beautiful strong vocals be allowed more space to shine through. Especially during the quieter vocal parts. Whaddayathink?

don't mind a bit
as this is my mix, i'll take responsibility for hearing the feedback. thank you, johannes - your perspective is appreciated. me thinks a neutral party - neither the vocalist nor the musician - might make a better mix. thanks for the listen!

Y'know....
...for such a cheerful and uplifting kind of person, you sure do manage to do melancholy to the nines...

Good strong, simple and focused lyrics, Anne....

I think I would like to hear something like a unifying reverb helping the vocal to sound like it's in the same space as the piano and drums...
SISTERS said 2471 days ago (November 16th, 2010)
thank you, ed
well it IS fun to play other parts - i'm getting better at slipping into those roles the older i get.
regarding "same space," i once had a friend tell me to "carve out a notch at some -db or other to make the vocal sit in the musical bed better," but i had no idea what she was telling me. i DID hear the vocal sit a bit on top of this. does it sound like the vocal has no reverb to you, or needs more? this is how i learn - thanks, professor!

Now I'm going to
have to go back and compare the two versions.

Awesome vocals!

The piano part in this just slays me. It is so good.

Ohhh, you found the way!
I love the lyrics!. The feeling you put into the vocal delivery comes through. Never disappointed. Awesome.
DWL said 2464 days ago (November 23rd, 2010)
I'm so sorry!
How did I miss this?

Excellent song. I really like the differences between the two versions. So good to hear the two intepretations.

Nigel really produced the goods on this and you and Marty both did the music wonderful justice.

Cheers

Timeless
Anne.. Glad to see you're over here. This work could be heard anywhere from a stage to a piano bar and the vocals were top notch as always and Mr Hardy's piano was as you said-beautiful-simple as that.. a matching accompaniment to your voice and the tight harmonies with Marty, again- ultra fine.. Enjoyed
