Description
This is from the Hangover open collab tune i previously put up. I tried to change it as much as possible to suit the vocal.

I have been pestering poor Anne for a while now with a few ideas. In the end she got sick of me and decided to put pen to paper and voice to microphone. I am indeed a happy chappy.

Sweet Sister Anne is a very kind and considerate woman with a wealth of experience and talent, as ya all know. She has also the patience of a saint and has the best sense of humour.

Her approach to this collab has been nothing but pure fun and enjoyment for me. She has been extremely cooperative and a real pleasure to chat with. We have exchanged many emails during the making this tune.

Thank you so much Anne for all your help and for understanding, you are a very kind and warm hearted person.

Lyrics
I'M NOT BLIND
I SEE WHAT YOU'RE DOING
AND YOU JUST CROSSED A LINE

I THOUGHT I
WAS PART OF YOUR FOREVER
BUT I CAN READ THE SIGNS

I SEE YOU LEAVING I SEE YOU LEAVING
HOW COME YOU'RE LEAVING ME BEHIND

I SEE YOU LEAVING I KNOW YOU'RE LEAVING
HOW COME YOU'RE LEAVING ME BEHIND

WHY
WHY

TIME IS RUNNING OUT DONT WANNA WASTE IT
TIME IS RUNNING OUT DONT WANNA WASTE IT ON YOU
TIME IS RUNNING OUT DONT WANNA WASTE IT
TIME IS RUNNING OUT DONT WANNA WASTE IT ON YOU

NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO
DONT WANNA WASTE IT ON YOU
NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO
CAN'T AFFORD TO WASTE IT

I'M NOT BLIND
I SEE WHAT YOU'RE DOING

Flourishes are way tasty! The vocal seems to fill the space without getting in the way of anything. It really does sound superb. The bass effects and beat is very cool. Annes vocal ideas are nifty too.
What a winner!

Wow - this is really good
can I say it any clearer? Anne is superlative as usual - and the pulse you build at around 1:20 is pure magic Steve. Fantastic collab. Love the transient guitar sounds here and there.

whoah steve. sensational sound-bed. trademark tokai delayed guitar. the vocal compliments the piece perfectly - adds to the atmosphere without distracting from that really cool vibe. thought it was too short....but then realised it was four and a half minutes. well done bro....you really created something special here.

Great blend Steve & Anne. Atmospheric and a little mysterious to boot. I dug the original jam and now its off to a whole notha plane. I was looking forward to hearing this, trying to imagine what Anne would lay in, and now that I'm listening, I'm thinking, yes, yes, yes :-) Very nicely done you two.

Wow. Incredible sounds, incredible vocals. I thought the original post was complete but this takes it to another level. I am overwhelmed. Can't... w.r..y..t.. anymore.
Love it.

Thank you, Brother
Steve, if only you had something GOOD to say about me!
:D
I truly enjoyed our partnership. I learned a lot about you - seemingly small details about your mindset that were not small at all. It's great to be able to give and take, ask and receive, boss and be bossed. The music you gave me was full of tension to my ear - so that's what drove my lyric. Amazing what your "little" guitar embellishments bring to the tune. Thank you for the song dance, Sir - I had myself a lovely time.

It's even better now. Well, of course. That goes without saying. Sister Anne always classes up a tune. But since this was already a classy tune, it's now entered the stratosphere, flying high. I DO like vocal pieces where the music is given some space --- just like this. Close, intense/relaxed vocals, guitar polish, slick breaks, great perc additions, significantly abrupt ending, top mix. Excellent!

This is cool - Anne's vocals have a very dreamlike quality to them. In fact the whole tune kind moves along as though in a dreamlike state. I really enjoyed this - thanks!
