Just had another listen to this - it's a beautiful song.

@Rachel_D vocals are so pure and make me want to stop what I'm doing and just listen.

The arrangements sound really good as well - not overpowering the vocals - although I can hear what @MartiMedia mentions about volume - but only because he'd pointed it out. Not sure I would have picked it up otherwise.

I can imagine this playing as part of a movie soundtrack - maybe as the titles are rolling at the end.

Great work from you both

Thanks a lot @MartiMedia and @jurgen . Yes, I'll have to tinker some more with the volume levels in the final mix. But I expect @Rachel_D will also adapt the new vocals to the volume and expression of the backing track...
Looking forward to finishing this. It was my first ever kitchen collab and I'm really happy with it so far. :D

Any comments on Rachel's new lyrics? would be much appreciated! :-*

Cheers,
Mark

Hi Rachel/Mark,

Blimey, have I really been away so long that I'm hearing songs from February for the first time?

Very glad I tuned in.
The backing track is very well put together - somehow sparse but suitably full at the same time. Must be a word for that - but my mind is blank.
Great vocal performance which suits the music well.
I agree about the levels needing adjusting - but as you say there is a new vocal and tweaks to come, then I'm sure it will all come together as you want.
Maybe a bit more reverb on the vocal?

Lovely stuff.

Digger

Hi,

First of all thank you @Dutchbeat  , @MartiMedia  , @jurgen and @digger72  for getting back to listen to our song and for your encouraging feedback and tips :)

@Mark Luto  – which parts are you referring to when you refer to the ‘swells’ please? … and yes, I’ll need to adapt my singing to your instrumental as I’ve never actually sung along it yet. We’ll see what happens then... Looking forward to it too :)

Regarding the new lyrics – I think that everyone’s missing them as we’ve got so many posts on this thread that they’re actually getting ‘lost’  :P! I’m reposting them below: (if anyone has any suggestions/tips on the lyrics let us know  ::smiley:: )

NEW LYRICS

Take - taken by surprise,
heaven only knows
why my smile will endure

Gaze - gazing in your eyes,
I can understand that
I mean as much for you

Happiness, is where the heart lives
and the song will last forever
Happiness, because my heart belongs to you
our song will never...

get older, get under,
get bruised by the thunder,
- if ever - we'll fix it anew,
as long as we're together,
there's nothing that we cannot do!

Happiness, I give my word to you
and that’s what I’ll remember,
Happiness because my heart belongs to you
now and forever

Float, floating in the skies,
Trust is all we hold and
Our hearts, are set free

Count, counting all the stars,
I can feel we’re soaring
To a place we’ve never knew

Happiness, is where the heart lives
and the song will last forever
Happiness, because my heart belongs to you
our song will never...

get older, get under,
get bruised by the thunder,
- if ever - we'll fix it anew,
as long as we're together,
there's nothing that we cannot do!

Happiness, is where the heart lives
and the song will last forever
Happiness, because I’ll keep the words I give
and I’ll remember
Happiness, because my heart belongs to you
our song will never get old

No news is good news, right @Rachel_D ? :D
I'd propose to make a recording of the vocals using the lyrics as they are...
What do you think?

Really looking forward to the next version of this.. I really love this song - chorus is stuck in my head all these weeks/months later...


Too late for this but the lyrics read really well..
