Lyrics
Can't Let Go

We found each other in the morning haze
That first year brought to us such joy
With common friends we whiled away the days
It seemed like nothing could annoy

[refrain]
Well, I can't let go of that old feeling
when our hearts pushed through the ceiling
and soared on high with doves where the shore
met the blue sky of forevermore

We vowed one day to lift each other higher
no matter what each moment weighed
But then doubt's shadow made us sink into the mire
Harmonic waves began to fade

[refrain]
Well, I can't let go of that old feeling...

Now I dream upon my love
Where is she tonight?
Now I drift upon the sea
Is her vessel in sight?

They say that time anneals the fragile soul
That whispered prayers will soon erase
But I am heedless to the final toll
I summon forth your precious face

[refrain]
Well, I can't let go of that old feeling...

How are you doing it?
Such a sweet song. Love those high voices when they chime in.

I'm curious as to how you are "remastering" these songs. Are you processing the original tracks with different software? Or are you using new techniques learned in the ensuing eight years since the original production?

Sad
I thought I had done a good job remastering this from the original Logic tracks but then played it on my daughter's Bose satellite speaker and it sounded muffled. Very frustrating. Warren, one of the things I did was use Melodyne to pitch correct my lead voice and harmonies.

?
Why do you want to pitch-correct your voice when it already is such a magnificent instrument? It just seems to me that those infinitely subtle variations add nuances that make a song interesting - fascinating - to hear. Perfection ultimately is boring .. because it is inhuman : )

That said - I'm sure you have a vision of what you want your tracks to sound like .. and so you find and use the tools it takes to achieve that aspiration.

Never finally mixed
Thanks, Vic. I appreciate your comments. Just trying to get the album published but my collaborators have gone missing. Were they angels sent to Earth to teach me how write lyrics and sing with control?

Beautiful song...
Such nice music, period...
Your own vocal is rich and full and warm.
The "band" is well-balanced and provides a simple accompaniment without mucking it all up with lots of other instruments. You let the vocals sing out clearly, as they should. ... I do like the high tenor voices (yours in falsetto?), or...? Wish I could help you with locating your cowriters. This is such a pretty song. Congratulations.
