Description
It's been a while :-)

I thought I needed to get out of limbo and do something, so started working on this song. I got in touch with Rosalind, my favorite singer and collab partner, who very kindly accepted to work on this song. It has been, once again, a delightful experience working with Rosalind. In addition to her beautiful voice, she's a very serious musician, always paying attention to every detail, always going the extra steps for whatever is needed for a great result.

Rosalind also worked on the final mix of the song, which has been a key element getting the right sound.

I hope you enjoy this little song and Rosalind's fantastic voice.

Thank you.

Lyrics
STANDING ON THE BRINK

Every good moment we ever shared
Every time you held my hand
This feeling we've always had
Now I wish you could say it again

Every good story has an end
There are no words left through the night
Will you remember where we left ?
Would this path lead you into the light ?

***

Standing on the brink,
I can't feel the ground
Beneath my feet
I can't hear a sound
Back then this flame burnt in our souls
Now I'm cold, those days are gone

***

Brightest skies, colors of the rainbow
Soft breeze on a beautiful day
Pretending we're above it all
As tomorrow becomes today

***

Standing on the brink,
I can't feel the ground
Beneath my feet
I can't hear a sound
Back then this flame burnt in our souls
Now I'm cold, those days are gone

Great to hear you both back at MJ. I agree with you about Rosalind's vocal work, Yves. Just wonderful. Fine song, too and you have presented a subtle, restrained arrangement befitting it. Thanks to both of you. Kind regards, Peter.

The intro
drew me in straight away.

Good to see a new post from you. Melancholic to be sure.

I really like the sparse arrangement and the layering of the vocals.

Fine work my friends :-)

Cheers

Good work to both of you. Deep melancholia, consistent throughout. And welcome back. Hoping for some more proggy extravaganzas from you, too.

Hi Yves - how nice to see you posting! It's been awhile, eh? This is a really well done song - Rosalind's vox are superb, and you gave her a wonderful, understated songbed to perform on. Really nice - a great listen, and I enjoyed it a lot. Great to see you my friend - nice work by you both!

Yves! Sow wonderful to hear from you again
Excellent collaboration - you and Rosalind work really well together. Perfect blend of layered voice and a somewhat spare musical arrangement. Smart choice - really supports the melancholic message of the song.

Thank you
Thank you to all who have listened and/or commented. I was really honoured to be ask to participate in this song, as it is such an emotional one and wanted to do the best I could for it - which did mean being a little fussy!
Yves is so patient and accommodating however, so hope we have a good end result.
Like some of you here, I think the simple music bed was just right for the tenor of the song and no more was needed. Thank you Yves.

Glad I stumbled back in to take a listen to this. Great collab. Especially like the harmony singing on this. The violin sound at 2 minutes is the perfect addition to the piano/vocals. I like how the vox gets more and more complex and full as the song proceeds. Nice spatial placement of the vox.
Hope you are doing well.
