Description
I must have caught the lethargy bug that's been frequenting this place for months, because though I thought i wouldn't succumb it seems it got the better of me and I sank into the mire. Oh I always have melodies turning up, but I've been stuck on new lyrics or topics, since i already covered most in the past. This melody has been hanging around on my guitar for weeks now without any lyrics, so I bit the bullet and I think 'Im Feeling Stronger'. I bought myself some new strings after Christmas and after much hesitation to change my old strings I did so last week, to avoid the twanging of new strings I played this as i used to play, with my thumb, so as to dumb down the squeaks (partially successful) and I played and sang it on one track, using my mic (sure) jammed on top of a camera stand. I had to experiment a couple of times to get the best balance of guitar and vocal, since i was doing the one 'take', so I hope this comes across OK, M

Lyrics
I’m Feeling Stronger

I’m Feeling Stronger, so much stronger, now that love has found a way,
My nights grew longer, ever longer, I just had to find a way,
To bring love back in my life, so my heart could breathe once more,
Now I feel stronger, ever stronger, than I’ve ever felt before.

I’m stronger, so much stronger, now that love is here once more,
I’m just filled with so much wonder, since you opened up the door,
Letting love-light flood right in; filling life with love once more,
Now I’m strong and feeling stronger, than I ever felt before.

Bridge.
Why the pain, why the hurt, from something soft and true?
When it comes, it lights your life, when it leaves, the world is blue.


Now I’m stronger, so much stronger, now that love is here once more,
I’m just filled with so much wonder, since you opened up the door,
Letting love-light flood right in; filling life with love once more,
Now I’m strong and feeling stronger, than I ever felt before.

Maurice Vizard January, 2013.

Wait!
This is Maurice live? I was already impressed but became increasingly so as I listened and read the description. I love the changes and melody. You write them the way they used to. Really nice performance both on the guitars and vocal!

I'm Feeling Stronger
So nice to hear just you and a guitar ... Maurice unplugged. Wonderful melody sung with passion and the gentle strumming of the guitar ... this is good Maurice ... I like the ending the way you softly glide into the falsetto. I'm glad you're feeling stronger.
Cheers

Thanks Stan
So pleased you liked this and my 'raw' performance... just wish the guitar hadn't been so 'zippy 'sounding..... and that falsetto was something I went for, but was a bit like a rabbit in the headlights as I saw it coming ha ha.. didn't know whether turn turn round and run away or not., Regards M

Hi Greg...
Thank you for dropping in to hear this and pleased you liked it........ but oh how I hate putting new strings on and the twangs and creaks they make after (a bit like my voice these days), cheers M

Quiet
Nice quiet song. Guitar and voice in one go helps this sound very smooth. Sometimes we get carried away by all the tech we have. Refreshing sound!

Moviz said 1646 days ago (January 20th, 2013)
It's strange
how a person sings more naturally when playing at the same time.... I suppose it's because the whole body and mind are better co-ordinated at such a time.... I do agree we can sometimes get carried away and it IS a different sound that's produced.... all the best M

Very flattered
by your response Bob. Of course initially, every song is done like that, but then is embellished with other instruments... truth is, I couldn't seem to find a suitable accompaniment for this song, so left it raw..... thanks again, regards M

Impressive performance, M
Doing it all live an' all! Well, I know you're a professional, but still :-)

It's rather natural to feel a bit tired in the darkest time of the year, I think, but your mind has been working this out for you in the background, much like a dream, and I'm happy you came out stronger...

Thanks and take care,
Henke

Glad you're
so impressed Henke, but you know, it's not so much having been professional (that was a long time ago), it's the getting old and sounding it ha ha..... just wish I was as fit and full of breath as when I was pro. Nevertheless it's so encouraging to receive praise like I have, from you and others above... very much appreciated, regards M

Thanks Dick
I still have memories of what it was like to be in and out of love, so I'm pleased if the lyrics are 'intense' enough to qualify these days, so long after the event, ( so to speak). Thanks a lot for listening and the email, Cheers M

Sounds like Elvis and Don McLean got together and wrote a song. Parts of this made me think of McLean's Crying. Nice performance. I laughed at your mic jammed on your camera stand. My mic is attached with a bungee cord to an old telescope!

Hi M, the sound your new strings are charming, anyways it didn't effect the message. Love the lyrics, while a bit sad at the start, it ended up with hope of fulfillment. Thanks!

Inspirational
I've working out my playing and singing on acoustic some days I just can't find the balance between the two. And I bursting at the seams to play my new acoustic stuff out in public. Listening to you has inspired me to go ahead of make videos of me trying to get as good as you, so I can make my public appearance sooner.

Moviz said 1644 days ago (January 22nd, 2013)
Hi Moses
You've no idea how encouraging your comment is, so thank you sincerely for that. I think certain songs ask for the acoustic treatment more than others and this was one of them for me. Go ahead and play your songs acoustically and on video too ( two for the price of one lol ) I can't wait to hear and see them; let us know when you post them...... thank you once again, regards M

paul f. page said 1644 days ago (January 23rd, 2013)
An authentic sound...
...that can only come from a very personal interpretation that is recorded acoustically. You somehow achieve in a recording what most musicians try to achieve when playing live for an audience: warmth, a quality of genuineness, and a poignant sadness in your vocal delivery. ... I am reminded of something from Oedipus' "Antigone" (the third Choral Ode) when the author is talking about the vagaries of love: how we strive for it over and over again and how it somehow leads such pain...and, as he says, "Aphrodite laughs." The pathway of love is, apparently, a lifelong journey that is inevitable. You sing and write about it with affection and sincerity.

Thank you Paul
for that much appreciated endorsement of my song and performance.... yes love does seem to lead us a merry dance... up then down and it can really hurt... but then again it can almost literally shine, like a light. Of course at my age and being single, I'm writing from memory as well as experience. Thank you again for your interesting comment, regards M

World weary vocals and getting stronger all the time. The harmony on the guitar is classic. Thanks for sharing your great songs with us. The middle eight is glorious. None better at singing about the times. Keep on Maurice!
