Description
This is an update of a song I did with Scott 3 years ago, which I've extended (and put through Ozone 3) because people at the time said it needed another bridge, which I agree with. so here it is along with my description below, which I posted at the time. I couldn't add which hardware Scott used, so just posted mine.
"I Loved this instrumental that Scofugate posted, so I DL'd and kept listening as it really grew on me. My voice has been really rough of late, but I bit the bullet and wrote him, to ask if i could do some lyrics and vocal on his piece. He kindly agreed so I set to work with a few of Scott's suggestions and only a couple of days later here we are. I hope you like this... I do because my voice actually worked LOL, but it took a good swig of Glycerine (smooooooothing) to lubricate my dry throat."

Lyrics
Then There Were Four

People may come, people may go,
Changin’ our lives an’ makin’ it flow,
Liftin’ us up, bringin’ us down,
One minute sad, then wearin’ a crown.

Times in my life I really gave it my all,
With friends on every corner they were havin’ a ball,
Happiness though was only skin deep,
Just a façade; knew it would stall.

Then you came into my li-ife and everything changed for me,
All that had ever been just faded awa-a-a-ay…
As if it had never bee-e-e-en.
All of my past just melted aw-a-a-a-a-ay,

What had been good, was only good for then,
So many people, I’d considered my friends,
They just came and then they went;
Only you were Heaven sent.

Things have changed, time has gone by,
Friends have dwindled, my, oh, my!
But, life has been kind; it brought me you,
And from our love, came another two,

First there was me….. then came you….
Love knocked at the door…..
Then there were….. four.


Music and backing…. Scott Fugate
Lyrics and Vocals…. Maurice Vizard

Hi Stan
Glycerine is good for coughs I discovered and really smooths and soothes a rough throat, not that you ever need it with those silken falsetto's you hit LOL..... it is a different style (again) for me, but i was pleased with how it turned out..... thanks for the nice words, regards M

Big sound in the backing - I can see why you were attracted to it! Good lyrics and strong vocal delivery of them. I like the light and shade in the arrangement. Fine work from you and Scott, Maurice!

very pleased you approve of what i layer over Scotts' music and when i asked Scott what did he think the lyrics should be about... he said he didn't mind but there were four in his family, so that's how the title and subject came about.... thanks again, regards M

Mo and Scott's adventure
Mo is the man.
The production supports Mo's vocal delivery. I can't tell if Mo is actually getting angry during the build up. I want to think he is... more than clever guys. The ride out suggests another tune- I guess I have to wait?

This is outstanding! One of your best! I think Scott's powerful track brought out power in your vocals that often remain hidden. Great lyrics.

This
is great Maurice, I love this new version. I also love all the different genres of music you produce, there is nothing you can' t do!
Your vocals sound great and a wonderful performance.
Very much enjoyed.

Regarding the different genres, I treat each song like a play and I try to play the part of the character and it seems to work. The older i've got the better this seems to apply, because when i was younger i just had a 'ballad' sort of voice and no way could i have done 'Rock', but now the vocal chords have been roughed up with time etc., my voice has found new avenues.... thanks again for calling in and for the very welcome compliment, regards M

This is a great collaboration. Much as I like the laidback /lounge tunes you regularly post, this 1. brings out a new intensity level in your singing 2. has a more organic instrumental part.

An absolute winner.

Haven't heard this one, Maurice. The vocals are a revelation. Powerful stuff. Even the arrangement is quite different to what you have been posting of late. Working with Scott seems to have brought out a different side of you. Fine post. Take care, Peter.

I really like this Mo!
Nice track! Only nit is that at times I think your voice gets covered up by the band. Not always, just in places. Nice work you two!

Was in when I sang 'Faded awa-a-a-y' ?.... when you're singing to an already complete track it's not easy to get everything in total balance though, I had to give Scott a look in .... anyway, thanks a lot for calling in here and most pleased you liked it Freddy, cheers M

I was mildly, and pleasantly surprised to hear your hard rock side come out, Maurice. I love all your stuff, but this was inexpected. I really enjoyed this! Scott's playing is as solid as ever. Very cool!

Your voice "actually worked" and it's put to good use on this very solid piece. Nice collabing.

Really appreciate that comment and I guess 'solid' is a good word to describe Scotts' playing on this, especially those strong bass notes in the bridge; has a very 'solid' feel, regards M

Hey Maurice - this is cool. Don't hear you do much like this. After a stint of nice Latin & Pop from you, this a sweet break. Guess I flat missed the first go at this one; this mix sounds great.

Some nice changes, and the lyric/melody fits them well. I especially like the transition from verse to chorus. Way to go pushing those high notes in the chorus. Slow groove is hypnotic, I like the drums and guitar.

One of
the first things that attracted me to this piece was that first thud of the drum Dave and yes the transition between verse and chorus is great.... really glad you like this and what I added.... thanks a lot , regards M
