Description
This was written as I was playing around with Dmin, F, G, C, B# and F on the keys a few nights ago.

It's a fictional piece about a person who has an infatuation with someone, they know they can't have them, because every time they get together it spells disaster, yet they are drawn to each other, by the chemistry they have. - Yes frustrating I would imagine :)

Garni: Lead Vocals, Lyrics, Acoustic and Electric Guitars, Bass, Keys, Drum Programming and Mix
Alannah: Backing Vocals

PS: Thank you Alannah for your work you put into this and your input into the mix too :))

Lyrics
One Small Moment
Lyrics and Music: Gerald Grech 2011

I'm sitting here all alone
My mind is drifting far
Contemplating of things gone by
and wonder if they
will come or die

I live in hope
But then I cry
what, is the answer?

One slight hint is all I need
to start making our plans
Will I be disappointed again
or is this just a dream

Chorus:
As I look in your eyes
I see the magic that is there
One small moment is enough
to show you I really care

Eyes of blue
Hair of fire
Your somebody's dream
and will I be lucky enough
to live up to that dream

Chorus:
As I look in your eyes
I see the magic that is there
One small moment is enough
to show you I really cared

Lead

As I look into your heart
I see a woman who is broken
was it the way I treated you
or something you let happen

Chorus:
As I look in your eyes
I see the magic that is there
One small moment is enough
to make me stop, and I cared

Big sound
What a rich tapestry you create here - a majestic sound! Seems to me your vocal has bit of Pink Floyd to it. Alannah's strong vocal add variety, too. Excellent mix. Much enjoyed! And hi from another part of Melbourne!

One Small Moment w/Alannah
Wow! What a duo you two have become! Another great collaboration. Deep, dark, and powerful. So well produced! I like the acoustic guitar. You should break that out more often.

Majestic...
The wonderful clear, spacious mix was the first thing that hit me. Then Alannah's backing vocals kick in to complement your equally fine vocal work, Gerald. This is a big production number that is majestic and subtle at the same time. Shades of U2 for me? Take care, Peter.

Wait, Peter Murphy and Stevie Nicks did a duet? :) Cool arrangement with great sound choices, produced with plenty of space and air. I didn't want it to fade out - it feels like leaving the party early! Nice job!
