With TheTiler's consent, I am reposting this song here. I have taken the comments from the original posting into consideration and made a few slight changes to the song. Not too much of a remix, really.

Just revisited....

Lyrics
My Way Home

I arose to the morn',
A swirl of misty colors in the glimmering east,
Drawing my gaze to its view.
And the bright-brimming dawn brought to mind a promise made,
Beckoning my weary feet on my way back home.

On my way, my way home, step by step
To you.

Passing the fields and the places I knew before
Sun upon my face, inspired by the grace
Of returning to all that I loved and held dear before
The birds in the trees offer sweet serenade.

On my way, my way home, step by step
To you.
On my way, way back home, step by step
To you.

I arose to the morn',
And the memory of a promise made
Beckoning my weary steps back home.
And I'll go on my way, 'til I find myself at journey's end,
Bringing my wayward steps home
To you.

(Lyrics by Mystified)
Featuring TheTiler on guitar

OOOh.

You are one talented lady Mysti!

Beautifully sung and fabulous melody and harmonies.
I love the lyrics..

TheTiler, you have played beautifully on this.

Thank you so much, Slimmie, for dropping by to listen (again) and leave a
comment. (And the rest of you, too!)

I know we've discussed this song, and I believe I mentioned in the previous
posting comments how after a few listens to TheTiler's beautiful instrumental
"Beyond That Fence" everything--lyrics, melody, harmonies--just seemed to
fall into place.

Hard to take credit for inspiration... But I am most definitely grateful that I've
had a chance to do this and post it here.
Such positive and encouraging comments make it all the more worthwhile.

Thank you, again :)

Thanks SlimGirlFat

Working with Mystified has been the highlight of my being here so far at MJ.

I know she can do other styles and I am sure you will see that in the future.
She sure does feel at home singing & working with an acoustical guitar. I am
sure that is not the only instrument she can adapt to. But when I hear those
two songs we did, it really does amaze me how she fits in so well with the
tone of the guitar.

I loved it the first time and love it now.
The vocals and guitar are stunning.

On this remix, I think that I heard you looking at a
cowbell. Nice touch.

Thank you for your comments, Mungo :)

And yes...very good ear there!
Cowbell, and if you notice there in the picture....sheepbells, too :)

Very sweet singing !
What a perfect picture for this song:) !!!

In your words "passing the fields", how can you ask for a
better picture!

Love those words "in memory of a promise made". That
has a mysterious powerful almost patriarchal feeling to it.

What is a real vocal grabber to me is the words "offer
sweet serenade" harmonization. Tobin even mentioned
that he thought that was real nice!
Great font for the title of the picture.

Thanks so much for taking out my breathing in the
beginning so people don't think I was on life support.

Mystified didn't seem to care but I loathed it.
So on my prodding she did :)
Yippi, now I can rest a bit easier !

Thanks Mystified for uploading the newer version.

Very sweet singing !

...And thank *you*, Tiler, for the beautiful and inspiring music to which the
lyrics and vocals were set. Inspiration was easy to draw upon with the
original composition "Beyond That Fence."
I am grateful.

TheTiler sent me a revised intro, from which I spliced out the audible
breathing. Though some mentioned that the original ending seemed to draw
on for too long, I liked the momentum it offered from the message...to take
those steps homeward, and so I cropped the ending a little but hopefully have
retained the integrity of the piece....

good is now better
This mix sounds cleaner and better balanced. Wonderful
song, great to hear it again!

Somehow, this version is more confident, more deliberate.
Seems like you're really sinking into the vocals. They have
a sense of solidity and "groundedness". Your voice sounds
wonderful with thetiler's excellent guitar accompaniment.

good is now better

Thank you, Cameron, for your lovely comments.
Hmm...as for the 'somehow' of the remix....I adjusted the panning of the two
voices more to the center (something suggested on the last version). Also,
while working on On & On, I noticed that the basic setting I was using for the
vocals had a preset effect assigned to it, which I removed. I think this clarified
the voice to a purer sound, and gave it more focus.

I'm glad these minor changes have been beneficial. Thank you for noting this
in your comments, and taking the time to listen again.

take us to a place deep within our beings, moving us to a
magnificent place...Myst...your vocal creation has done
just that.

Great song Myst and Tiler:
I'm new to this site, but giving this song into the high sevens shows this
is a tough audience!....As far as I'm concerned this is more like I 9.5....I
can't vote cause I don't have enough points yet but when I do I'll revisit
and see if I can up this score alittle! Great work! Its exciting to hear such
talented people. Myst your voice is very healing, more people should be
hearing it, especially these days...Peace, digitalnirvana9
