Liner Notes: 

Roel says: Hey Deanna, I was finally able to upload a version that has many flaws, but I hope you like it anyway. Smile


No words hit the paper
Yet I have so much to say
But there’s no point
I keep it in
There’s nothing left to say

With all that’s on my mind
It should be easy to start
I guess my pride
Won’t let me write
The thoughts inside my heart

The blank page how it mocks me
A reminder of my strife
Silent are the words
Which swirl around my life
The blank page how it mocks me
A reminder of my pain
This inkless piece of paper
It’s driving me insane

No words on my paper
My demons I cannot slay
You’ll never know
How much it hurts
There’s nothing I can say

No matter what I write
You will never feel this way
I wish I could
Write magic words
That make you want to stay


The words I cannot write
In my head swirling around
Unspoken and so haunting
Their power keeps me bound


Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

This is a beautiful collaboration! The piano ballad with the soaring emotional vocals is perfect for these gorgeous lyrics.

MmmmMMMMmmmm. Roel's piano and singing always get me. (yeah yeah, I know the flaws are there Roel, but it could always work up at leisure). Excellent setting for the frustrated and not-quite-despairing lyric. (You two should do more together!)

I believe we are doing more together! Looking forward to that

Another great setting for Deanna's lyrics. Some of your musical choices remind me of Peter Hammill (which is good in my book)
