Description
"Still, She Weeps" is the latest version of "Ember-Rekindled", an open collaboration piece by Drakonis. The original piece is here, and links to many other Macjammer's versions are on Drakonis' artist page.

In late September, Alannah suggested a kind of "charred-Ember". Eduard encouraged me to write some lyrics. Then, he did a great deal of tweaking of his own fine work, "Ember-Rekindled". I began singing versions in October, 2008. I was hoping I could get a better microphone so there wouldn't be so much noise for him to clean up. My finances were directed elsewhere and I didn't sing again until a couple days ago, still using the same mic. Drakonis is the producer. In many ways, he did all the work. To quote him, "I am excited for you to have your song on your page!" As for me, I am petrified. Thank you for coming by to listen.
Thank you, Eduard for your time, skill, patience and friendship.

Lyrics

Still, she weeps, quietly.
All that she knew, now is gone.
Her past life, it won't be fixed.
All of those lies were so wrong.

Weeping in the morning light;
Sleeping with a crystal-lined face;
What is left, for her to fight?
There never was a love to replace.

She has learned, finally.
Each new day, must be lived through.
There is some hope, she can see,
And her faith, she will renew.

New-found paths, she can cross;
Bold escapes, down avenues;
Simple gifts, absolve all loss;
To bring untold revenues.

Now she sings, happily.
Grief distilled, as a new song.
A brighter life, now transfixed;
She'll stay strong, forever long.

(whispered)
Still, she weeps, quietly.
But these are now, happy tears.
Still, she weeps, quietly,
Until there's no more need for tears.

Lyrics: Charlene M. Kankiewicz

Delish!
Dang, Alannah beat me to the "Charred Ember" joke!

This is lovely Char ... your voice is intense and deeply heartfelt, and very lovely. I'm envious of the precision with which you hit every pitch so cleanly and clearly.

Drakonis's original piece is a magical work, as evidenced by the number of beautiful songs that have risen out of it over the years, and this is a very fine addition to the range. Well done both of you, you should be proud. :)

bravo, woman!
char - i'm so glad you faced your fear and went for it.
hopefully the longer we live, the more we can do that til we fear no more!
i'm gonna be 58 in april, and could kick myself for not taking chances much much sooner.
i'm pretty sure if the intensity to your voice could be harnessed, a lotta lights could glow. ;)
my voice is ok, but on the puny side. your voice is obviously naturally FULL of power and energy and unpuniness.
i'd like to hear the music surround you more - you are like a laser cutting thru nebulous clouds - that's good, but i could go with bigger clouds to balance your strength. can't comment on the lyric yet - the music and melody always gets my attention first, and they're still soaking in. i enjoyed these excellent fruits of your labors, eduard & char!

Ah finally the waiting is over ....
.. Charred Embers are smokin hot girl ! And certainly a nice christening for your first official post! I agree a little with Anne when she stated that the music could have surrounded you more - Drak seems to have turned down Ember to a smouldering in this one ... and with your bold dramatic take on it .. there were places where the backing tune could have picked up with some boldness and heat ! I said this to you once before ... when I hear you sing ... I am reminded of those Disney scenes when Cinderella, Snow White or Sleeping Beauty sing in the forest and all the woodland animals dance around her. Beautiful take on Ember!

And, you know that I love you, girl! I have squirrels, chipmunks, opossums, skunks, groundhogs, rabbits and deer..around here. They'd probably run and hide, though. I don't do music. I barely do singing.
Yes, I think Drakonis wanted to let me be heard. If it wasn't for him and his generous help, I wouldn't have this, at all. I am always grateful. Thank you.

Char... would you sing on one of my little pieces sometime!? I would be honored in more ways than you can imagine.

Your voice is so fitting to this, and yes yes yes you can sing... In fact you sing amazing!

Thank you so much for sharing this Char. Please never again be afraid to let your beautiful voice ring out.

I will struggle up off the floor now and scurry off to bed with this wonderful melody whisking through my mind. Thank you both!

My friend, Mark,
Drakonis is a great supporter. I know he has shoved some folk in here. I always enjoyed singing. I used to sing all the time. I am so happy that some people don't mind hearing me. Absolutely, yes. Mark, anytime you want me to, I'll try. What a nice compliment. Thank you. :)

Hey, dragons don't shove people around
We just smirk and gently announce the presence of something like this to a few people.

Charlene, I sincerely enjoyed working on this with you. It was interesting and fun to roll up my shirtsleeves and try to do something else with Ember, and it gave me great joy to work with you on your sung parts and melt them into place. I'm also amazed that you did this whole thing in ONE take!

After reading the comments here, I may have been too conservative in making sure your voice stood out over the music, but I wanted to showcase you. Also, this is a delicate song, so I was keeping it quiet. I only boosted the music in one spot to add punch, at the "Bold Escapes" line, but it could have had more presence, I can see everyone's point, good suggestion!

Excellent work here Char, and welcome to the Ember club, I'm so glad you've started your Macjams journey with your first song (I should make little flaming "E" buttons or something for Emberites.)

ttfn,
Drakonis

Char... Drak...
This went through my mind all night long. I woke up gently humming the melody and my wife asked, why are you singing at 5am... oops... she does NOT like to be awakened before alarm time... my bad... or rather YOUR bad for placing this melody and song into my brain...

Alas it is beautiful and wonderfully performed and yes Char when I have a suitable piece I will ask you to sing for me... OMG... Join the ranks of Gail, Micheal2, Mr. Schletty etc. You truly sound wonderful.

Not to laden all the praise on you... Definitely Drak Ember is a killer hit. How many now have done their twist on it? I plan to but I'm wondering if I can do such a wonderful piece any justice at all... I will give it my best and see what happens.

Bows to both... Excellent!

Hi Char.....
This is a wonderful interpretation of this enigmatic (to me) piece of music.

It sounds a tad oriental to me and a little Puccini-like, neither of which is a bad thing. Far from it.

Take care.

Pain felt
One could not help but experience whatever pain was involved that produced these lyrics. The music and the words definitely embrace each other. Fortunately for you and us, it sounds so very hopeful with good days ahead.

I could not immediately associate the voice, with that of the Char personality and photo, that is so often displayed in the forums and the chatroom. What a pleasant surprise.

This sounds like it is right out of a stage performance of some musical play, almost having an asian influence in it's style.

Nice one Char!

I am a whiner. Just like putting on a smile, when I don't feel like smiling... that's what I'm doing with the lyrics. If only Life could imitate Art. The Asian influence comes from Drakonis' Ember.

Irene Papas
A couple of weeks ago I came by some YouTube-movies with Irene Papas and Vangelis, great music and great singing.

But, I am sorry, Irene,
You kick her ass Charlene!

I feel so lucky that my eyes caught that note-symbol by your name in the Who's Online box. Ember is one of my absolute favorites here on MJ (and elsewhere for that matter), and I have tried to collect them as good I can, but they keep coming and they keep improving in a mesmerizing way I would not have thought possible. This piece of yours is just marvellous, such excellent singing to Eduard's excellent new mix, takes it up to new horizons. Well done!

you are so sweet. Pappas was a wonderful singer, good enough to make a living at it. I don't have to be in good voice all of the time, but just for that brief moment while I'm recording. And, I did my best. I am happy you liked this re-tooled version of Drakonis'"Ember". Very high praise. Thank you so much. :)

Who'd a thought it? Drakonis changed his music so I could fit my words in. The words came very quickly. I probably write better than I sing. It certainly is easier. And I have more confidence in that.
I have to rely on kindness of "friends" who are willing to do all the work. Thank you. :)

your voice has such a unique character, it's like nothing i've heard, and i mean this in a great way. it sets me to a such meditative, trance, tantric mood. i think your voice has a power to pull something out of subconsciousness. thanks for creating and sharing this marvellous experience.

This is a very lovely take on Drak's original. You have a very nice voice that suits this track very well! Great work! Once you get a better mic, I think your vocals will really soar, because we'll be able to hear them better. :) Keep up the great work and it's great to have a fellow MacJammer that lives so close to me; I'm in Vandalia, Ohio. How cool is that?

"mystical and haunting" to "depressing and creepy". As you know, we write from our experience and this is what came. I am so happy that you found something of value, here. Thank you so very much, Paul, for visiting and commenting. :)

Welcome to your brave new world!
This was way cool, Char.
It's awesome for someone who is more prone to listening, to actually come out and put him/herself out there. Good job! Keep it up.

Steve. Lots of fits start and a near miss at me becoming an angel, for real. Eduard was really very patient with me. I couldn't get back to it. I had to buy a car. I was in debt. You never know. Thanks for seeing that Eduard and I tried to make it special.

If you'd like to play
with this, it would be all right with me. I can hear both a lute and a mandolin. Eduard lengthened his song so all of my lyrics could fit it. I would love to re-record now that I have more confidence and a darn good mic. Thanks, Chris. :)

"There never was a love to replace"--gave me the chills! You have one of the most unique, enjoyable voices I've ever heard. You have such an even register and are able to move throughout your range with ease. The arrangement perfectly supports the lyrics. Beautiful collaboration.
