Again, I'm left wondering what could have been

And I found a reason for the reason she

Would never leave the door unlocked

And never leave the TV on

When I leave I will pass her in the doorway

When I leave I will pass her on my way

She said something with the way she bit her lip

And I stood and thought about it for too long

I must have missed her final word

It's getting late, I'm getting burned

When I leave I will pass her in the doorway

When I leave I will pass her on my way

And this is everything I've been dreaming of

It felt so right and I got it all wrong

And this is everything I've been waiting for

But I guess it's time I wait a little more

A smile breaking record time and smashing mine

The dark cannot clear the air or clear this floor

I'm left inside, the spotlight on

I cannot see beyond my outstretched arm

When I leave I will pass her in the doorway

When I leave I will pass her on my way

two of my fav artists,
Excellent track from both of you.
Nolan, I love your stuff and this is a great showcase for
your vocals....
I love the lyrics..

Miss Chaos, what can I say, this is beautiful, expertly
produced and arranged. Wonderful playing on your
keyboards, gentle and lots of emotion.

Aint nothing wrong with this to me...

very tasteful
I've always been one of your fans, Nolan. Your songs
always please the ear, and your productions are of
consistently high quality.

This collaboration is excellent. Miss Chaos, your additions
to this song are very tastefully done. Your contribution is
tastefully subtle, enhancing the essential flavor of Nolan's
lyrics, vocals and guitar. The result is a cohesive, well-
integrated, seamless whole.

It is fascinating to hear various kinds of collabs here on
MacJams. Some bring very different elements together,
while others combine more similar material, as though
speaking with one voice. This collab is the latter, and
works very, very well.

Great job, both of you!

Great Song!
Only thing I can think of is that sometimes the strings
seemed a little too buried in the mix. Other times seems
perfect. Beautiful though. I enjoyed this song. Thanks.

Superexcellent composition, performance and production.
All 9s. Vocals are smooth, crisp and highly emotive. Nice
job, you two!

Radio ready
Amazing combination of two amazing talents. Reminds
me of some of the extra texture that Mark Isham brought
to Suzanne Vega's first album. Sure they were all
incredibly strong songs to begin with, but in some way I
just about can't imagine any of those songs he worked on
w/o him. Very tasteful arrangement. I take it those are
some of those nice Korg Karma sounds. Yumm. Fav'ed
and downloaded.

This ballad is hauntingly beautiful. It is so heartfelt it
almost aches and makes me cry. The guitar and the
background pad music is angelic, very soothing, both sad
and heavenly. This is a collaboration of musical genius
and makes me so envious.

"She said something
with the way she bit her lip."

Nice word pictures in this song. Love the nervousness and
tense mood you have created in this song.

This is a great collab. Congrats to both of you finding
each other and not passing each other in MJs doorway.

One of the best
in the genre on this site! I feel a little like your lead vocals
could be a little more up front. I feel like the guitar is "in
front" of it a bit. The strings and other instrumentation is

Bit of compression?
The vocals occasionally have unexpected spikes. Bit of
compression wanted? Somewhere halfway the strings
come up to a level where they are actually part of the
arrangmenet. Before that it sounds like you're recording a
vocal-plus-guitar track, and, oh yes, let's add a couple of

Could have sworn I'd already commented and voted on this
Maybe this is a different version? Anyway, I love this
song. Absolutely wonderful. Great writing, singing/
playing, and it's so masterfully mastered. Just sounds

I see this is the one I marked as a favorite. Something
must have distracted me before I got to comment and
vote. Sorrt about that. Glad I came by to take another
listen and found my lack of comment.

Wonderful collaboration resulting in a superb song and
