Description
The idea for this one started after five_extra_arms suggested a few friends write a song with "Love," as the title to celebrate Valentine's Day. Lisa looked at her banned books mug, which happened to have Lady Chatterley's Lover scrawled across the side and the result is in your ears. We only had four days to work on it, because of Lisa's Great Mercury Retrograde Computer Explosion of 2015, so we're still developing the song, but we hope you guys like your valentine from The Orbiting. Happy Valentine's Day!

Lyrics
The day had fallen down,
violets dotted the ground,
my path led through the woods to you.

Rain fell through the leaves
into darkness cast by trees
on me, on you.

Lady Chatterley is a ghost,
but you wanted her the most,
but a ghost can hope for love
even when the sky has fallen.

I've tried to replace
the place I knew you,
but it's hard to escape
the dark of the woods.

I remembered we all die,
so asked to go inside,
but you said there there's something
between death and life.

You grabbed me by the wrists,
ashes and whiskey on your kiss,
but I wouldn't be your ghost anymore.

Lady Chatterley is a ghost,
but you wanted her the most,
but a ghost can hope for love
even when the sky has fallen.

I've tried to replace
the place I knew you,
but it's hard to escape
the dark of the woods.

What if I burned the forest down?
Let in the light and cleared the ground?
Would I be free or miss the trees?

Lady Chatterley was a ghost,
but you wanted her the most,
but a ghost can hope for love
even when the sky has fallen.

The day had fallen down,
violets dotted the ground,
my path led through the woods to you.

Love
seriously - you guys did this in 4 days? You started right after Mercury came out of retrograde? Amazing! And the thing is, this is gorgeous. Love Lisa's vocals, and the backing track and vocals pull it into a warm nest. this MJ Lovefest has been awesome, and as I just said on Bob's Love page, it's really made my day. Beautiful work - hope to hear more from Orbiting sometime soon. Oh and ..... love the piano!

Firsties!
You got firsties, Karen! You're always so kind, thank you. I am so lucky to get to work with Matt. He actually only had a DAY to work on his portion and he really lushed up the music and production in under 24 hours. All that's left of the music I passed over is that metallic arp at the beginning and the piano. He did a version both with and without percussion, but I really loved his thoughtful drums.

Have I told you lately...
Wonderful collaboration. I love the way the vocals float in and out of doubling/harmony at times. Very subtle effect and really effective. Great arrangement - enveloping without overpowering. Cheers.

Thanks, Bud. When the track was still with me, I was playing with African choir loops because I feel like there's a giant arrangement version of this song that needs to happen, but time forced good taste this time around. :)

Crystal clear production

Great song

More than...
You know I'm jealous of your 68 minute powers! Although, Matt works far more quickly than me and he blew my mind when I saw him working in person, so half of our band is a speed ninja, at least. :) Thanks for the kind words, B.

welcome back guys
Great track guys. wonderfully warm mix, and a lovely spacey feel. for some reason it reminds me of late era REM.
Wonderfully evocative lyrics - something between life and death, indeed.
Lisa - Ive really missed your voice.

I've missed this place, too, Steve! I agree, Matt did make this one nice and warm and my mic was different this time around, too. Thanks for such a nice, thoughtful comment.

jiguma said 860 days ago (February 15th, 2015)
Lisa!
For starters, your voice is sounding as beautiful as ever - I seem to remember you once telling me that you struggled with harmonies (or something to that effect) - not here you don't!! Fantastic words and excellent backing tracks and production. I'm getting a very "Life In A Northern Town" vibe here (for me, a very good thing).
Sounds fantastic!
Not sure how I missed the MJ LoveFest thing - oh well :(
Cheers from Oz,
Neil

The Orbiting said 857 days ago (February 17th, 2015)
Yes!
Neil! You heard "Life in a Northern Town," too? It wasn't intentional, but when it was done, both Matt and I were like, "Am I high, or does this remind you of 'Life in a Northern Town'?" So, it's funny to hear you heard it, too. I mentioned up there that I had the urge to go big with the backing vocals, so I do hope Matt will eventually indulge me with a more epic LIANT-style version of this song. So glad you like this one, thank you.

Warm
Thanks so much. Usually I sing with a Rode Nt-1a, but I had computer issues and, because of time, was stuck using a Snowball on this track. It's definitely a much warmer mic than the Rode, less detailed, but it's substantially warmer. I think that had an influence on the overall sound. It's always nice to hear you enjoyed one of our songs, thanks!
