Wanting, Waiting II

Description
Instrumental track: Mungo
Vocals/Ambience: Mystified


The way I approached this was simple: Take the title "Wanting, Waiting," and without prior planning, improvise a melody and lyrics to incorporate it into the track.

I'm sure 4 1/2 years of listening to operas and singing art songs in college has had something to do with the dramatic result lyrics-wise, as understated as it is melodically. It's similar to the soprano singing her 'swan song' aria....

Thanks, Mungo, for letting me sing to this awesome backdrop of sound.

Thanks, too, to you Bryn, for various listens, helps and suggestions!

Lyrics
The sun set, as usual, behind a molten sea
And I stood, as usual, waiting, wanting
Waiting, wanting
For you

Why does it seem an eternity?
Why does it seem such a futile thing?
Wanting, waiting, waiting, wanting

Wanting, waiting
For you

Dreams, they scared me
Told me what I could be
Those shattered dreams then took me
And laid me in the ground
Writhing
Crying
Screaming
Longing
Falling
Drifting away..

Wanting, waiting
Waiting and wanting
Dying
Crying
Into eternity
For you.

All for you
Wanting, waiting...
Calling
Dreaming
Drifting
Falling

All for you

Wanting
Waiting

Excellent!
Your vocals are sublime Mysti and float beutifully over Mungo's musical backdrop - a really moody piece - very calming. Lovely.

Simply
fantastic! I've never "felt" music like that before. This broke straight through my emotional wall like a laser. Impeccable arrangement, vocals, and engineering. Thank you so much for that awakening!

wow - very dramatic
I liked this song alot. You have a beautiful voice and you did an awesome job allowing your emotions to come through. Interesting, dramatic piece. I could feel your pain coming from the words. Really great job.

A perfect
piece of music - the piano is beautifully played and the tone perfect. The backing strings/synths fit to perfection. And those lyrics/vocals are beautifully perfect too. An amazing collab.
Cheers

Great track...I really love the echo you have added to the vox now on this. Sounds a bit like Wuthering Heights in Outer Space? Great stuff both of you!

What a superb collaboration. It's great to hear some "MJ Old-Timers" still putting hearts and souls into personal creations. I am getting a little misty-eyed as I remember the three-plus years I've been here. We've somehow made time for the sublime.

Beautiful piece. Congratulations.

thank you for the kind words...
....really nice words there, Richard.
And much appreciated.

It is hard to believe that it's been almost 3 years of non-stop musical inspiration since I discovered GarageBand on that iBook...

Thanks for sharing your music here as well :)

delicate and yearning
nice combination - helped by the sparse backing track - with choice intersections of piano and synth. Stirring piece!
