Description
A tune that Anne and Fred helped shape and form.

Anne, you know you really lent more than just the lyrics to this. A sympathetic ear, your wisdom and insight and never forgetting your exquisite sense of humour, many many thanks. The pleasure of listening to Anne singing solo in my headphones was a real joy.


Fred, what a guy. He had to put up with a lot of crap from me and was always professional and a real perfectionist. You made a drab drum take I sent you into a real ripper. A massive thanks to you too man.

This song is for Tara.

Anne/Sisters - lyrics and vox
Fred/Loob - Drums and patience

ベイブ、i、はすまなく思っています、そして私は本当にあなたがいないのを淋しく思います、私は何度もこの歌を書こうとしました。

Lyrics
I'm writing her a letter
like I do every day
I don't need pen or paper
every word's in my heart to stay

I've got her photo on the table
I can see myself in her smile
I'd love to meet the girl I've never met
talk with her a while
be with her a while
share with her a while
so many miles

oooooo all this space
oooooo all this time
oooooo what a waste
oooooo what a crime

In my heart
in my mind
she is there
for all time

Sorrow battles hope
and most times sorrow wins
I wish that I could undo time
and make it right again

I'm writing her a letter
and filling it full of love
I'm writing her a letter
full of love

To get this on my headphones. I just know it's gonna swirl and dance around my head. Classic tokai tones. Great drumming and topnotch vox here.
Love it on my mini speakers... I'll be back!

First the overall mix is amazing with wonderful separation and such a full sound. Fantastic guitar stuff going on around my head and then the dreamy vocals come in. I think what makes this work so well is the air and spaces that are in the mix. And the drums are great. This whole piece is ... well... beautiful!

As in all you do Steve, just a subtler sense of freedom and space. Anne sounds fab as always and Fred is slaying me with his surreal touch with the sticks. Indeedly impressive mix.

Wonderful
Anything Anne sings, I know I'll love. What a fantastic song, so well done. Love that little twist at 1:31, then again at 2:28, so cool. You 3 are so awesome, this song is hauntingly wonderful.

Terrific arrangement. Sounds chosen complement each other, and are balanced and separated in a superb mix. Great performances on drums, bass and guitar, and Anne's vocals are smooth as silk.

mesmerized to say the least...
Anne, your vocals captivate me. I'm held prisoner by your writing and vocal style! Great job! As for the dark ambiance: I loved every sound, great guitar work. The guitar spaciousness was spot on in my ears. Last but not least: the percussion surprised me because of the clarity and crispness of tone (at east in my headphones) Excuse my ignorance was the drums a real or electronic set?

Overall, great job and a great collaboration you guys! Thanks so much for sharing!

What an excellent song, Annes voice compliments the music perfectly, quite a dark tune, enjoyed well done
SISTERS said 2108 days ago (June 18th, 2011)
thank you, Steve
well that was some project! i really liked our process on this one - some things just have to sit and simmer a spell, and I think this one cooked up well. it's always interesting trying to find a workable melody in your huge, non-formulaic music. Fred added just the right dose of smackage.
my thanks to both of you - Anne

Dreamy internal depths
I really dig the depth in your vocals, Anne. The personality, the patient diction. The emotive detailing. Clean and transcendent mix. Dreamy timelessness captured here.

Wow. Excellent mix. Great vocals. Perfectly delicate atmospheric guitar. The bass spread stereo sounded odd thru my speakers, but I kinda liked it.

Ha!
I was listening to this and thinking I KNOW I recognize this tune! Steve, you finally got this done! Nice job...this was called "Tara," yes?

Powerful
There's so much to listen to in this arrangement - and everything so clean that you hear it all. The mood created fits the lyrics perfectly. The way the music builds and retreats keeps interest and emotion throughout. Fantastic!
