Description
This is my first addition to the Ember open collab project by Eduard (aka Drakonis). I made this as I was listening to his original version the first time all the way through. I love how it has turned out. :)

Lyrics
Carla’s First Ember

Ah-a-ee-ye!

Oh-a-oh!

Oh-oo-a-oh!

Ee-ee-e-ee-e-ye!

Ah-ee-ah!

Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh!

Ah-ah-ah-ah!

Oooooo-oooo-oooo-oooo!

The ember of the spark
Of the flame
That you started
Inside me
Will always be alive
Alive

Ah-ee-ah-ee-ah!

You opened a door
No, and so much more
I can’t find
Any part of my mind
Not touched by you
Now that we are so close
So close to being all we can be
To each other
For the rest of eternity
You are the one for me…

At least one of the ones for me….

Ohhhhhh-oh-ee-oh-oh-oh!

Ooooo-oooh-ooooh!

Aeeeee-aeeeee-aeeee!

Wa-wa-wa-wa-hi!

Hi-ai-ai!

Come let me hold the
Weight you carry
Home in my heart
You know it can bury
Both of us now
Not just me

Ah! Ah!

Lullaby almost has a
native american vibe to it but just a touch of it. Like the delay effects you used on this track. Very ambitious to sing almost acapella like this (and I know you have several other I have heard). Some high falsetto in this one. Very relaxing... feeling very sleepy! Great job.

Thanks my friend! :)
Yeah, I hear that too, Chas, and it was not something that was on my mind at that moment, just came flowing out (the native american vibe, esp. at the beginning). Yeah, the delay really worked on this song - I wanted to stay with the mood the music was putting me in and it was the first day I had this particular mic (my favorite!) set up to record with. Thanks for all your comments!

Just waiting for you to send me something... :)
Dear Feter, your comments are very much appreciated! Thanks for being so kind. :) And as for jealousy, there's no need for it, LOL - I've been hoping you'd send me some of your delicious mandolin playing and/or .... ? so we can collab on something! :)

Ah...
Ember gets another visit! I have yet to do an ember but someday I will try to bring the project down a little with my own entry! :-)

Nicely done!

Thanks - it would be so cool if everyone here did one - some singly, some in groups, etc.. It's such a fertile bed of coals! :)

Welcome to MJ!
Carla, thank you for taking Ember for this first spin... I hear echoes of scat-flashbacks to Pink Floyd's amazing "Great Gig in the Sky", as well as a touch of Native American chanting... very cool! You hinted that this will not be your last take on it, so I eagerly look forward to more from you. I'm so glad you enjoy it... and I look forward to more collaborations with you in the future!
ttfn,
Drakonis
