Description
Anne :
"Jack and I both worked on psychiatric wards - and watched disappointed family visit beneath the constant blare of the ongoing television...."

Jack :
"..... and we talked about the "clients" who seemed to come every six months. Usually in agitated moods. Usually weeks after they should have had help. Usually because that was how the system works. The last time you see them it is nervousness but determined just to get it right. In six months the guilt and shame is what you see. That's all this is about and yet it is more than that to me thanks to the brilliant work Anne did."

This track literally evolved in two days and 46 emails. It began with a forgotten piano doodle and some rough lyrics. We structured the song and Anne completed the lyrics yesterday and I final mixed today. I am going to post a piano and solo vocals mix later on rabittwhole.



So much of this tune reflects the talent Anne brings to every project. I am honored she shared her time and talent with me. "sis" I owe you.

I don't really know what genre this should properly fall under so "Other" it is.

Lyrics
CRYSTAL
Jack Hemby & Anne Cozean

Please believe
I never meant
to end up here again

I believed
that maybe somehow
I could set it right again


And I was wrong
and i was wrong


Crystal is the sound of souls breaking down
Shattering souls hardly make a sound

Hardly make a sound


Don't be mad
I know you're disappointed, so am I

I tried so hard
I really thought i had it beat this time

And I was wrong
and I was wrong
and I was wrong this time

Crystal is the sound of souls breaking down
Just another shattering soul
breaking down

Wow... this really touched me. Wonderful lyrics "Crystal is the sound of souls breaking down"... wow that discordant synth note works so well at around :58. The vocals give me goose bumps with the passionate delivery. The music sits well in the mix ... this is a strong piece.

There are no words
to convey how achingly beautiful this is, Jack.

Anne's vocal and lyric work are stunning in their ability to capture something so tragically haunting as this.

The music you chose to play behind it just amplifies the intensity of the feelings of disappointment and loss portrayed in the lyrics.

These words from the song are amazing in their impact on the listener when place in the musical envelope you've chosen, especially the way Anne sang them.

"Crystal is the sound of souls breaking down
Just another shattering soul
breaking down"

One of the best I've heard on MJ, or anywhere else for that matter, you two should be very proud of this one. Kudos to you both.

The sound of broken glass
seems to be a running theme with your vocals. Glad I understand this and have now an insight where such a thing can come from, from you the artist. Anne is always a joy to work with. I was thinking the other day that we were about due to collaborate again. Not surprised on the 46 emails. She is very involved in anything she puts her mind too. She is the quintessential collaborator. She sounds perfect here.

Another gem added to the MacJams treasure chest, by the two pillars of MacJams whom I always hold in high esteem.

Simple, but it stirs the emotions that are present in the air, despite the television blare, that tries to conceal them.

Can't miss really!
Jack and Anne together are always going to sound great - the addition of some excellent lyrics about a delicate, sad subject is the icing on the cake. While I didn't work in that context, I certainly dealt with families trying to cope with "revolving doors"! Terrific backing tracks too of course, and excellent production.
Love it!

Experience the Teacher
Life begets art, art begets life and it all goes around in a circle. Some embrace sanity by trying to make order out of chaos. Others learn the art of acceptance and not trying to force square pegs in round holes. May there always be room for empathy and compassion no matter which way the circle takes you. Especially for those who lose their way!

quickie
Jack - I think your "quickie of the heart" description of our process on this one is perfect. I heard your music, and was well satisfied. Then I heard your vocal melody, and surrendered. 46 emails? I think the first 40 were from me trying to convince you to sing this, even though in my heart of hearts, I truly yearned to sing it. I'm so grateful you saw thru me, and changed the key lo, all those many times to make it work for my voice. Musically, the bare bones keys set the mood so beautifully. Don't think you could have chosen a more plaintive melody, Jack. And your lyrics go straight to the heart of the matter with no detours. This was nothing but pleasure for me. Thank you for the gift, Jack. It's a good one! Anne

drakonis said 2138 days ago (June 20th, 2011)
we all fall under the "other" genre
A deeply touching, heart-wrenching "look from inside" (apropos image too.) The gentle repeated apology of someone who is wired to behave the way they do, realizing after years that it seems easier for everyone around them to offer forgiveness than to offer help. Gently and profoundly portrayed here, you two. Nothing more can be said.
ttfn,
Drakonis

Great story. My wife works with the mentally ill as well and I have heard many of the same sad stories. Really touching and poignant. The vocal is super well recorded, but there is some pretty piercing sibilance that needs to be addressed. Other than than, absolutely gorgeous.

Jack, the keyboard part is just enough, slightly scattered as the lyrics demand of it, and just right.

I came here on the heads up from Bud ajd m so glad i did. To me, thos is what MJs is about; people achieving true musical greatness on the amateur stage. Ive not heard as compelling and beautiful a performance for some time, and certainly not in the commercial sphere. Truly breathtaking vocals and great musical accompaniement. This is not just one of my favourite MJs songs, its one of my fave songs period. Bravo..

Hi Anne and Jack. The story line is not the usual journey for a song and that makes this extra special. The uncomplicated lyrics and simple arrangement add to its poignancy. Anne, your vocals conveys real emotion. Congratulations to you both. Regards, Peter.

Sweet and sad
The spare arrangement means the weight and the conviction are all down to Anne, and she comes through in high style: calm, collected and heartbreaking. That piano doodle sounds very fine, too! Great, great job.

You people...
Jack and Sisters are so sensitive to the subject that that listener is stunned into silent reflection. This is musical theater. I can see Anne singing e while bathed in a single spotlight in the pivotal moment between Act I and Act II. Bravo on the music; Brava on the singing. Thank you, artists.

this is beautiful! really moving and so sad. I've known people who've gotten lost in the system- it's very sad. The song conveys it so well. I like the tv noise effect. I love this lyric: "shattering souls hardly make a sound" That really sums up well what you wrote about.
