Description
While remixing this song, I muted the main guitar and drums (and a couple of other things) and came up with this. I know it's too late for the MJ Coffee House, but it's a fun listen nonetheless.

Lyrics
My Time Machine
---------------

Don't wake me. Just let me be.
Bad things, wait for me.
Sometimes it's the only way.
But my worst fears caught up today.

Your smile... Your face is brave.
Sine waves, they illuminate.
But now it seems - the smell is cold.
The doctors buzz... don't leave me alone.

Please don't go. At least wait for me.
There's so much, you have left to see.
Don't wait for God, to decide you fate.
Fight back, with all your might.
Don't let up, 'till you're back at home
and you find yourself sitting next to me.

If I had the means
To build a time machine
I would find a way
And I would change this day.

thanks, Yeman! this coffee house mix was really quite easy to pull off, as i just had to mute a couple of parts. i'm not sure what i think of it yet, though. :)

coffee version
i'm glad you like this version, feter. with so much less going on, it does feel more calm. i hope it doesn't put anyone to sleep, though. (but then that's what the coffee is for. :)

nice
cool alternate version, scott. really gives off a different vibe and I like the sparseness of it. end vocals sound really good

sparse
thanks on both counts. the end vocals are 'better' imo, but i still don't like my voice... maybe it will grow on me.

i like hearing the different parts. kinda interesting, but not something i necessarily want downloaded. thanks again, dood. when's the new shizzle coming? and when can we buy your Satellite Tragedy cd?

Ha ha!
Very NICE Coffee House version man. HOWEVER, I think it could pass much better as the Wet Bar version at last call!

Simple but lovely piano, and really nice singing!

Be well!

thanks!
yeah, i can totally see what you are saying about a regular bar, as opposed to coffee bar. thanks for the props as far as the piano is concerned! it was mostly just free form improve. thanks for checking this version out!

Greetings Fellow Vancouverite !
.. wow ... ok at first glance as a huge fan of reverb ... I do LUV the vocal FX .... with their echoey sound .... please OH please teach me your secrets .... I LUV this soft .. yet BOLD version .... now I gotta check out the original .... just noted your Canadian Flag in the online box .. and thought .. hmmm .check them out .... and here I am ! Actually if I was to comment on the mix as a whole ... very well done! p.s. ... if you add some bits in the forums .. or chat and um ... (pimp) a little in the chat room .. you would get a whole lot MORE of well deserved listens IMHO..... Get yourself HEARD .. cause its good stuff !

hello!
always good to hear from a fellow vancouverite! thanks for the kind words. i'm definitely trying to get myself out there. i don't want to be too invasive, but i do like to get out there and listen to other peoples' stuff.

yeah, i'm a big fan of good reverb and delay. i have a UAD1-e PCI card, which basically has a bunch of really good VST plugin effects and reverbs - that don't eat up CPU cycles. i actually added some distortion to a plate reverb (along with another reverb and delay) and eq'd it a bit. it's just one of those things you gotta get your hands dirty and experiment with.

Great
Vocals were good and then fantastic. Thoroughly enjoyed the final verse. Loved the sparse sound to begin then a great change for the lead out.

About your voice
I didn't listen to the original version yet. This one is so subtle. Lot's of space and then the bang in the end.
I like your voice the way it is. In fact, the many ways your voice could be.

Late to this party!
I was attracted to the title (a little detective work will explain why) and stayed for the lovely performance. Great vocals and superb development.
