Lyrics
All the lights would die if you ever said “Goodbye”

I’ve been thinking all around it, I’ve been thinking all through the night
Sometimes it’s hard just to get it right
A calculated phrase, a message falling from the sky
I’ll say anything and mean it, if it keeps you by my side

But have I shown you enough so that you believe
It’s not just words you need to stay in love with me
But, then I know it’s just as easy to let go sometimes
And sometimes I thought that you should know

I’ve been thinking about it, I’ve been trying to sort it out
Sometimes, I know, you’ve got to have your doubts
If I haven’t been the man I promised you I’d be
I swear that I’ll keep trying as long as you’re with me

All in all it’s been a lovely life, just you and I
And I would like to think you’ll never change your mind
But then I know it’s just as easy to let go sometimes
And sometimes I thought that you should know

Bertty nice
This is, beautifully sappy! Nice balance of composition. Who is, Jack and Paul? I this inkling that I should know...

Great arrangement! Nice vocals from everyone singing. Really struck by rightness of the orchestration.

A wonderful listen! Thanks for the traveler! Macca

Thank you Gail
"Whimsical" That' the word I was looking for in the list of genres. They need to add that. I'm glad you enjoyed the singing too. Roxy was the icing on the cake, and probably the cake as well. I think I was more like the flour you throw in the pan. Glad you enjoyed it. Terry

I thought You Should Know
This turned out BEAUTIFULLY! Thanks for the thanks, but as you well know, I did NOTHING but be paralyzed by the lack of a click track. Luckily you found Paul Page, who can do anything! This is just wonderful, congrats to this great collab team - a new MJ band!

Wonderful collaboration
Lovely song with great lyrics and orchestration.
I can see this on a film score - towards the end of a christmas movie perhaps, just when the tears start. Well done.
Cheers

drakonis said 3377 days ago (May 21st, 2008)
Wow...
This is a gorgeous little vignette! It feels very Beatles-esque, very satisfying melody, the singing and harmonies are beautiful (but well duh, it is Jack & Roxylee & Terry there), and the instrumentation is absolutely perfectly arranged, way to go Paul! I remember Magnatone shaking her head early on with this and bemoaning the lack of any metronome/grid to go by :-) Paul, you did a masterful job crafting the instrumentation on this, fits very well. The overall mix sounds quite good too, good balance between voice and instruments, panned position voices was OK (perhaps a bit wide for headphones, but crisp.) And the lyrics are sweet and heartfelt. Well, that's about it, I thought that you should know.
ttfn,
Drakonis

Thanks Eduard
A comprehensive review, and well worth considering. I too felt a vague nagging about the vocal panning. Paul provided a sophistication and urbane quality that I, as a musical barbarian, can only dream about. It was great working with all these talented people.

Great!
Very nice collaboration, great work by everyone. This could be a soundtrack for Disney's animations (or cartoons!), really would fit perfectly. Great atmosphere. Thanks for sharing, really neat wonderful work.

i'm
with Macaudion on this one: SAPPY. but great. i think i need to explore this mental picture i have of Burl Ives doing this one in some sort of animated 70's film. I'm picturing a bunch of fuzzly little forest animals singing the harmonies. great tune.

Or more of a Peter, Paul and Mary feel. Great little whimsical tune. Lots of talent here and it all sounds great together. I loved the little flute line. Thanks all of you for a great collab!

I get a distinct Pink Floyd feeling from your combined vocals. Weird setting for it, hehe. nice arrangement, reminds me of some of Queen's stuff.

Queen eh?
Gotta love being grouped with them. And when it comes to vocals, we could all learn from Pink Floyd. Thanks, Terry.

Nice vocal work
Amazing compositional skills.
The melody is really strong and the orchestral arrangement sounds 100% professional.
Who composed this gem?
The vocals and the vocal harmonies are really well done!

Thanks Drag
Jack (DA1) is the melody wizard on this, and planter of the seed. He let Roxy and me (Terry- DA2) do the singing, and also allowed me to add more lyrics. The orchestra arrangement is exactly what it is. Paul Page is a professional, and we were blessed by his input. Glad you enjoyed it. Terry

Hey nice!
What a lovely song. Warm and whimsical! Very nice vocal Terry. And isn't it a hoot to have Roxy on board?

Kudos to all!

Be well!
davisamerica2 said 3350 days ago (June 16th, 2008)
Thanks Michael
And yeah, it would have been a struggle to get this effect without Roxy. Jack and I are truly fortunate to have her on this one, And Paul...blessing # 2. For any tunesmith, Macjams is a gold mine. Thanks for listening. Terry
