The Girl with the voice #7

by @aneil @marthie

Liner Notes

This is a Fawm song that I wrote with @marthie she has helped me put music to so many of my Lyrics. I tried to sing it but it just needs a lady's voice and she agreed to do vocals and Wow. Can we release this as a Collaboration project? Is it ready yet?

Lyrics

The Girl with the voice
Lyrics by Neil Munro Music by Marthie Nel Haupflietch arrangement by Bram Potgieter

V1
To be the girl with the voice
Now she doesn’t miss a beat
No need to count
Purpose is paramount
Resisting negativity’s urge
Allowing hardship to purge
Cutting her ties
With feelings based on lies
Because it’s her choice
To be the girl with the voice
(instr)

Chorus
Oooh don't get lost in the noise
Oooh don't run away from choice
Oooh hear that still small voice
V1
Embraced her fictional self
Filtered her worth through doubt
Her Insecure heart had its say
Till courage saved the day
She heard the music play
Made her choice
Now she’s known
As the girl with the voice
As the girl with the voice

Chorus
Oooh don't get lost in the noise
Oooh don't run away from choice
Oooh hear that still small voice

V2
She’d met up with others expectations
Her resolve had been bent
A confused heart gravitates to fear
Till purpose whispered in her ear
(Instr)
Envisioned the audience cheer
Was brave stood by her choice
Now she’s known
Now she’s known
Now she’s known
As the girl with the voice
the girl with the voice

Oh this is fab. I could really see this as the main theme from a movie that tells the story of some lass determined to make it as a singer. Superb arrangement. This drips with emotion.
As I used to be an editor, can I just suggest that you make a slight edit to one word for clarity. “Negativities urge” should be “Negativity’s urge” as the urge belongs to negativities. As is, I expected these negativities to urge you to do something.

Love that chord progression and the arrangement thereto. Perfect vocals. Lovely lyrics--absolutely the whole package here. Great collab!

Well done, great collaboration! This would be a perfect character introduction in a musical. I enjoyed this a lot!

This is mind blowing you two! I am in awe with this perfect song!

someone should write a screenplay inspired by this song. it expresses the emotions of so many different stories and would make an unforgettable title song. neil's lyrics are are brought into 10k brilliance with marthies interpretation.

A lot going on here. I thought that the missed beat at the beginning might be a little too clever, but as the lyrics developed the unreliable narrator for an uncertain heroine, I appreciated it more. Very rich instrumentation, great collab!
