Liner Notes: 

This is just me having fun singing in a comfortable range for me, so call it selfish or self indulgent but I had fun for a while. This is a poem I wrote that I just put music to...why?? I don't know....maybe it is meant to be a poem, but I'm all warmed up vocally for bed.... and yes....we are back to the "jazzy" tag...if it is not a "thing", it is a thing to me LOL!

Lyrics: 

Misty Dream
by Tammy Jann

There's a misty dream caught in my eyes
of people I love who are lost in time
they live their lives in my memories
while I sleep, they're in a fantasy

The fog consumes me every day
I blink my eyes and wish it away
waving my hands to stir the dead air
it never clears, they never see me there

Chorus
sometimes their world feels larger than life
I wish I was there which doesn't seem right
and our special times act out once more
and lonliness hurts and my heart is torn
things aren't what they seem, in my misty dream

I know they're not here, I know it's not real
but I know in my soul how it makes me feel
in the blink of an eye I go back to a place
where we were together and I felt safe

I'm not able to right the wrongs
and when I wake up, they're still gone
I find myself racing through the day
diving into night to find their face

Chorus
sometimes their world feels larger than life
I wish I was there which doesn't seem right
and our special times act out once more
and lonliness hurts and my heart is torn
things aren't what they seem, in my misty dream

different - has a much more folky feel about about. Nice descriptive lyric again . i like the vocal lift as well.

Gorgeous and evocative intro...
I love what you’re doing vocally in the last line of each verse. Almost a cowboy ‘yip’ of wildness and excitement! Also the doubled vocal in the chorus. And I thought I detected a second delicate guitar part at one point, so faint and captivating, like a fairy sighting! I was enchanted. I’m glad for all the touches of your spirit having fun. There needs to be some solace for heartbreaking separations. (I think the poem indeed wanted to become a song.)

Sweet guitar calls to me from the beginning...Joan Baez again! You rock! Your "fun" turns into a work of intense beauty.

Soft sweet guitar, and somewhat along to my recent song, in some ways. So pretty...just so pretty girl!

Pretty tune, I got so lost in the sound I had to listen again to understand. It’s loss, the people who were once close, now lost in the mist, available only in memories.

Beautiful vocals. The lyrics held a sense of loss for me because I know your back story. There is beauty in thinking of jumping into the world of those who have moved on from ours.

I'm watching The Public Enemy with James Cagney and there's a scene where this music fits. It's eerie, but effective. I love your vocals on this and I especially love the line about waving your hands to stir the dead air. I. Love. That! Lovely piece you've created here. So glad I got to finally meet you!

Haunting, beautiful, and I love your voice, especially the way you sing those high notes!
