A couple of days ago Donna posted these lovely lyrics and invited forum users to put some music to them. I know that Josie (Sundance) is also going to have a go so I am looking forward to hearing her version.

Here are the lyrics:

Try not to to move try to stay still
Let her come if she will
Hold out your hand don’t even try
If you would catch a butterfly
If you would catch a butterfly

Do not chase do not grab
Don’t catch her in a net
The magic of her love
Hasn’t shown itself yet

She’s yours if you win her
Keep the contact strong
Hold you in her beauty
It can never be wrong

Try not to to move try to stay still
Let her come if she will
Hold out your hand don’t even try
If you would catch a butterfly
If you would catch a butterfly

If you love her set her free
If she’s yours she won’t leave

Try not to to move try to stay still
Let her come if she will
Hold out your hand don’t even try
If you would catch a butterfly
If you would catch a butterfly
If you would catch a butterfly
If you would catch a butterfly

Joanne & BellaDonna,
Very nice collaboration! Great lyrics. Joanne, you did a great job of articulating this without force, it flows very natural. Beautiful, like a butterfly.


Thank you for sharing!

Nice wee song, like an educational song for children, it would certainly keep their attention and get the message through while watching the video.

Thanks

Joanne & Donna,


A happy, breezy melody goes that well with the lyrics.
Lovely clear vocals (of course!).
Had me singing along on the last chorus.
That`s quick work on the song & video - amazing what can happen with these collaborations.

Hi Joanne and BellaDonna,

You had a completely different take on the lyrics than I had in my head, but it was a very pleasant experience to listen to your song. I really liked it!

I wish I could sing so I could show you my imagination of a song to these words. smile


You are stars!

Wow - you definitely did justice to those lyrics smile The tune is very gorgeous, and soothing to listen to. Easy to close yourself and get lost in. Absolutely stunning, both when it comes to your voice and the backing tracks.

Not a thing I'd change on this one - thanks so much for sharing!


Cheers,

Misha, beatmaster, Robert, Will, Deryk, Torrey, Telewanger, Greg, Jim, Kenny and Clifton. Thank you all for listening and commenting. Jim the footage was all free from from www.pixabay.com. The lyric video was made with YouTube Movie Maker.

I really spent quite a bit of time on this because I was suddenly seem to have some latency in my recording setup that I never had before... I cant figure why it would appear but suspect that I am using a different driver. So anyway, it was good to get a couple of songs in before FAWM so that I can streamline my recording setup...latency and all smile

Thanks to Donna for these terrific lyrics. She always puts such interesting ideas together.
