Demo: 

Liner Notes: 

I knew it would be impossible for me to morph a song by Catherine @wacha especially one of hers that I love so much. Her song is a beautifully rendered deeply personal song about living with a chronic life threatening illness. I really did not even want to attempt to morph that as it was so powerful and poignant.

Here is Catherine’s lovely song:

But alas, this is a morph. I wrote it a week ago but have not been able to play or sing it the way I hear it in my head. It is supposed to be beautiful but my musical abilities are too limited. If anyone wants to re record it with their vocals and music I would be thrilled!

MUSIC: I kept her same chord progression but changed the melody

WORDS: I kept the same structure and morphed about 50% of the words to make it a very personal love song about a time in our lives when I totally had given up on our relationship and the grace and love and forgiveness of my amazing partner brought me back, brought us back to a much better day.

Lyrics: 

A Better Day

VERSE: G C Am D
CHORUS: C Am Em D

(G) I want to kiss you on your (C) lips
I (Am) long to caress your (D) face
How (G) sweet you came back (C) in
And (Am) brought us such (D grace

(C) And then I (Am) know
we (Em) will be (D)alright
(C) It is so (Am) lovely
(Em) in this (D)way
(C)we had (Am)faith
and we (Em) found
a better (D) day
oh.... we (C) found
a better (D) day

(G) Your compassion and (C) love
Is (Am) doing me so (D) good
And (G) things have to work (C) out
The (Am) way that they (D) should

(C) And then I (Am) know
we (Em) will be (D)alright
(C) It is so (Am) lovely
(Em) in this (D)way
(C)we had (Am)faith
and we (Em) found
a better (D) day
oh.... we (C) found
a better (D) day

(G) My love is in your (C) hands
And (Am) in you I place my (D) trust
This (G) passion is so sub(C)lime
it (Am) feels so right for (D) us

(C) And then I (Am) know
we (Em) will be (D)alright
(C) It is so (Am) lovely
(Em) in this (D)way
(C)we had (Am)faith
and we (Em) found
a better (D) day
oh.... we (C) found
a better (D) day



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

I don't usually comment on morphs without listening to the whole chain, but I was intrigued to hear a composition and recording from you. I like the quiet, intimate sound of this. I really like songs that take on the complexity of adult relationships, and this one does so in such a lovely, reverent way.

this is lovely, i love when these games make you do a demo... you are not so unskilled as you think you know... i can't do that finger pick style for a start and your voice is lovely and you have a lovely range and it is .... just lovely Smile
i came via the next song in the chain so havent heard what you are morphing but on its own it stands strong.

Lovely track, the hushed quality of the vocal works well here
