My Beautiful

Description
I wrote this song on my first love, the piano, and was excited for the opportunity to experiment with micing a grand piano for this mix. I ended up using 6 mics on it, including two rails. A room mic 20 feet away picked up the ambiance, and a contact mic picked up the natural artifacts (like the pedal and string strikes).

This song was a really challenging vocal work, and took a while to get right. Sorry for all the (necessary) gasps for air.

Lyrics
VERSE 1
Yesterday's another day where you can't seem to get away
from the memory that drags you down
when all is said and all is done, I hope you see
we could've been in love, we could've been in love
and you run from me

VERSE 2
Open up your eyes and see the beauty that you are to me
the one that I designed to hold my heart
and all the years you cried alone, how could you not see
we could've been in love, we could've been in love

CHORUS
My beautiful, you are my joy
How I love you, I will hold you 'til the tears are gone
You don't have to run
Arms are open, my heart's hopin' you will turn to me

BRIDGE
On and on, you will not be left alone
I will find you, I'll be beside you now
You will always be my beloved
Give me your heart and I will restore it

TAG
And every day, I hope that you will see

Man what a powerful set of pipes you must have! Very good song, absorbing, and your mix is pretty right where it should be here. Vocal here really shines. Thanks for sharing this! Michael

Do you have a background in
christian rock? You have a lot of the vocal characteristics of christian rock singers. Really nice job here. Excellent vocal, great piano playing. Enjoyed it.

Thanks for the comment
Thanks for your comment and listen! I greatly appreciate your compliments. In terms of a "background", I'd say there's some influences to be sure. I'm a strong believer, and enjoy a good mix of worship tunes and the opportunity to lead worship every now and then.

Thanks again for your comment!

You have a great singing voice and this tune is very well written and arranged. I like the way you repeated the bridge, all the while building up to the final chorus. Very cool - really enjoyed - thanks!

That's a big power ballad. Strong vocals, like how you slide up to falsetto. Nice chops on the piano. Mix sounds great.

I have songs
I wrote for girls I loved, most whom never loved me back. The vocals not only were impossible to sing they often brought back emotions that made them too difficult to withstand so they've sat and will continue to sit, unsung, unheard.

Loving your stuff... In general you put a lot of work into each piece. Good things, good sounds, but most of emotions.

Music should strike fire into the heart of man and bring a tear to the eye of woman.
