Liner Notes: 

I hope I have been able to do these lovely lyrics justice. They are so very personal. Thanks liz. Your lyrics are just getting better all the time.

Liz says: Thank you so much, Joanne, for bringing my words to life with your lovely music! I will treasure this!

Lyrics: 

in the fabric...of my genes
as imperfect...as they may be
you will find the secrets
secrets of....what makes me
in the places...where I’ve been
as destinations....of love and sin
you will find the secrets
secrets of...who I am

I’m a woman...I’m a mother
I’m a sister...I’m a lover
can never tell you who I am
to know my secrets
come be my friend

in the faces...of my friends
as connections....forge and bend
you will find the secrets
secrets of....life I’m in
in the stories...of my soul
as memories form...and grow old
you will find the secrets
secrets of...love I hold

I’m a writer...I’m a doctor
I’m a loner...I’m a rocker
can never tell you who I am
to know my secrets
come be my friend

I can’t define me...I don’t pretend to know
there is no status quo...I need to grow

I’m a woman...I’m a mother
I’m a sister...I’m a lover
I’m a writer...I’m a doctor
I’m a loner...I’m a rocker
can never tell you who I am
to know my secrets
come be my friend

Incredible demo! The vocals are strong and confident. I love that!

I already told Liz, but the chorus is brilliant.

You do it justice with the soaring vocals. I adore this one.

Wow, this is a great take on the lyrics. Joanne, you did a great job taking Liz's already wonderful lyrics and elevating them even further. Nice anthem you have here!

A really great chord progression that engages the ear right away and keeps it! It's very nicely fleshed-out with the full band treatment, too, and the singing is pretty pro.

Sounds like an old favorite already! Love the qualities of your voice coming through especially on the low notes. Great collab
