You Will Always be in my heart.

I just want you to know I love you. And I've fallen for your every move.
Can't break the barriers to make it through so please remember me.

I've been lonely for the longest time. Never knowing how to make you mine.
Feel my presence from light left behind and you'll remember me.

I can not stay if you don't feel me. I'll float away yet never be free.
It is my love that is the energy you can't explain... you can't deny.

From the moment you came to this place. Casting shadows on my empty space
I've so subtly kept you displaced so you'd remember...

I just want you to know I love you. And I've fallen for your every move.
Can't break the barriers to make it through so please remember me.

Tom Mody song liner notesI pondered often if I would include this on the album. Partly because of it fitting properly and partly because it was recorded in 2013 and I knew my daughter would fight me about it. The genesis of this track was to really showcase a maturity in my daughter's vocals with some content she could relate to. She was 9 years old at the time so there's only so much maturity you can expect but she's been a dance all her life so I wrote a song about a ghost in a dance studio (her) that falls in love with a dancer at the studio she haunts. I also had been wanting to write a piano piece since I don't play piano. I'd say the challenge was met on all levels. The original recording did not have bass tracks or any of the airy distant lead melodies. When I visited this song for the remix it was evident that it needed bass. The track did have some issues in the timing and quantinization of notes and beats. I was just a bit too sloppy originally not locking the timing acutely in place and it's a bitch to try and fix that down the road. I still can hear a spot or two but I got most of it corrected. The bass tracks helped lock things in place better. It was very striking to go back and dissect my daughter's performance after some time away from the original recording. She doesn't really like working with me but at this time she was still somewhat reasonable to playing along. But what a great performance she gave me. I remember discussing with her the emotion of the piece and how to phrase things a particular way but really it was a natural style for her even at age 9. I'm sure there might be a cringe worthy phrasing or two given her maturity now at age 13 but it is a great example of a nice voice making a great track though phrasing. I did not discuss the inclusion of it with her, but never knowing when your last day on Earth will be I thought it important to preserve this recording at this opportune moment for her appreciation at a later time in her life.

 

Jeffrey Harris song liner notesMagnificent!
This gal needs to sing on some of our collaborative stuff.
Sign her up! Kudos to you Tom, for passing the musical torch and keeping a youngster interested in the arts. Everyone, be watching for this rising star.
