A Million Tears (a quartet collab)



 Genre: Ballad

Get Flash to see this player.

Another collab, featuring the unmistakable talents of some iComp buddies of mine. I sent an acoustic sketch to Nadie, and after a couple of online chats, the song quickly took shape to its final form. I just love Nadie's lyrics and vocal delivery on this one. Her friend Svet was nice enough to lay down a tasteful bassline, and Balok's piano/cello was the icing on the cake.

Nadie Keating: Music/vocals/lyrics
Svetlana Vassileva: Bass
The artist known as Balok: Piano/cello
Jay: Music/guitars/mix

From a Darkened Room at the end of the stairway
Lies a box a box that holds my tears
I look inside and see my memories
and everything that I hold dear

From an empty chalice in a chapel
A lonely priest he breaks his bread
You'll find your comfort in religion
but only when your faith is dead

I have known these dark times
I have walked a lonely road
And I have cried a Million Tears
For all that live in Pain and Fear

From a tear stained pillow down on Broadway
the actress takes her final bow
The curtain won't be raised for her today
There'll be no encore from the crowd

I have known These dark times
I have walked a lonely road
And I have cried a Million tears
For all that live in pain and fear

I get overwhelmed by a track. Its depth and lyrical strength. The single sparse elements combining to create something much greater in total.

I also get overwhelmed by the fact that I might miss something this good, simply because so much gets posted here, and it proves nearly impossible to hear it all.

I've never been in a band. I've never gigged. Up until very recently, I've never played live before anyone besides immediate family. And yet, a few years ago, I bought a Mac and started writing and recording. And the bands I've never been in, and... [see more]
