Description
I've been bereft of lyrics for a while now hence my absence and with a throat that just won't clear enough for recording, I thought I'd remix this song which I posted on the 1st Nov. last year. It's one of my favourite songs I've written, but I wasn't entirely pleased with the version I posted then, so I've tweaked pulled and pushed in this remix, so that there's a better balance between the verses and chorus's and I also slightly altered parts of the vocal. Hoping you'll give this version the thumbs up, M

Lyrics
It's True.


1. Step outside and view the world, all of life is in a whirl,
like prayer flags on the mountain high, blowing, blowing blowing,
In the breeze.

Chorus.
All the power you will ever need, is living deep inside of you, it’s true,
It’s the power of the Universe, it’s coursing through your veins,
It’s not insane, it’s true.

Open wide your eyes and see, free thought falling to its knees,
As people right or wrongly feel their views are sent from high, way on ‘high’,

Chorus.

3.Know what people say and do, but only some of that is true,
no-one can know everything, yet they have their views,
Holding up their books so high while looking upward to the sky,
But why-y-y?

Chorus.

4 Sailing on the sea of life, we can have it all,
Steering through the angry seas, we can still stand tall,
Fill your sails, fill them full with love, with love, lo-o-ove .

2nd Chorus,
We are made out of the Universe,
The truth of that you can’t reverse, its true,
We vibrate with the strength of love,
Love is the energy from up above, it’s true.

Chorus 1
All the power you will ever need, is living deep inside of you, it’s true,
It’s the power of the Universe, it’s coursing through your veins,
It’s not insane, it’s true.

Repeat chorus 1.

Maurice Vizard. Oct. 2012.

There's
a wonderful romantic sweep to this that is inspiring.

The mix is bright and clear but at times I think I heard some peak breakup. It might have been my cheap headphones at work or my ears from too much mixing of late myself.

Still a terrific song Maurice.
Cheers,
Charlie

Thank you
for calling in again Charlie…I think the part you mean is in the last verse at "...Fill your sails, fill them full with love," when there's the sound of my hand movement travelling through the side of the mic' as i held it. I had recorded it all on the mic' stand except that part, which I re-recorded next morning and held the mic' instead of using the stand. Hope it didn't spoil it too much though., regards M

Wonderful song Maurice
Cleverly arranged and a fine vocal but like Charlie I'm also getting some clipping. Most noticeably on the last "true" in the chorus.

Great lyrics and the phrasing is really interesting. I was wondering how you were going to scan "it's not insane" into the chorus and you did it brilliantly.

Cheers

Dick

Glad you liked it Dick
…I tried to hear the clipping in the word 'True', but I honestly can't hear it apart from the part I mention above to Charlie; maybe it's just my chest crackling, in which case your comment is plain out of line Ha ha ( joking). So pleased you like the lyrics and phrasing as well as the sneaky "that's not insane". Again thanks so much for calling in here again, cheers M

It's true
A nice sweeping melody and rich backing. I like the guitar tones a lot. I hear the sound breakup a bit on some of the "it's true", but it didn't worry me too much as I enjoying the lovely warmth the song conveys. Beautiful work, Maurice.

really cool song Mo! got a Moody Bluesy vibe to it. vocals got a bit hot in places, but the overall song is really full and complete sounding.

Moviz said 1441 days ago (November 8th, 2013)
Well Sammy
That's the effect I was aiming for with this re-mix; a more 'complete' sound. I'd felt that the chorus in the original was a bit too low in the mix along with the strings, so I went for a fuller sound, which I have to say, to my ears, sounds fine, but……well, maybe my ears are failing me as well as my lungs LOL, cheers M

Henke said 1442 days ago (November 7th, 2013)
It's True
It IS a a great song, enjoyed it a lot. Like others have said I can hear a few problematic passages, but overall they doesn't matter much. But I do like the "lighter" verses, whereas the chorus sounds a bit crowded, at least with headphones. No worries though, the singing is perfect and the lyrics weigh up any of the sun spots ;-)

Thanks for sharing and take care,
Henke

Melancholy Maurice
I don't recall the original version, so this is quite a treat to hear. The melody, arrangement, and your vocal is so pleading and sad in the verses, something I've not heard in your songs before this...or at least so pointedly. This is truly a lovely song, M. Your presentation of is is very special and I am glad that I have been able to hear it.

Hi Paul
Very pleased that you enjoyed this……the implied 'sadness' was probably from my subconscious's exasperated attitude toward todays so called 'teachers' and those who set themselves up as 'clerics' etc, who would have people think they hold all the answers and yet can't and don't, try to solve the problems, but instead, add to them. Really appreciate your kind words, regards M

Socrates
Reminds me of the famous quote that Plato put into the mouth of HIS teacher, Socrates: "The only thing I know is that I know nothing." If that's what Plato/Socrates thought, then who are we to pontificate?

It's True (remix)
The swirling guitar kicks this fine song off so nicely, Maurice. The tenet of the song gives it universal appeal. Engaging, warm vocal work. The chorus sound is a bit hazy to me, too, I'm afraid. Thanks, Peter.

Moviz said 1439 days ago (November 10th, 2013)
Hi Peter
Lots have mentioned the guitar, but it was only recorded through the pin-hole mic in the Mac and then some EQ and reverb on it, so i'm glad it turned out OK. Thank you for the praise regarding the song and the vocal. Maybe the chorus is sounding hazy to some, is because on this mix, the straight vocal is alongside or overlaying the chorus, whereas in the original it wasn't…… I just wanted a 'fuller' chorus sound .I'd better stay away from re-mixing I think LOL, cheers M

PeterB7858 said 1439 days ago (November 10th, 2013)
Lazy "hazy"
Don't give up on re-mixing just yet, Maurice. I think we all listen to something we posted in the past, that in a different light, with "new" ears, isn't sounding quite as we think it should now.
I listened to the song a number of times last night trying to pinpoint what it was that was distracting me in the chorus and, again, this morning (Melbourne time) and I think that it is probably the contrast in clarity to the verses, which are so spacious and precise. I know "hazy" is a lazy way to describe what I was thinking so I thought I might try to be more constructively critical because it really is a very fine song that you sing wonderfully well.
In addition to the what sounds like break up that several MJ'ers have mentioned on "it's true", I think it is the effected percussion that, to me, might be the element that gives it a more indistinct feel in the chorus. Also, perhaps panning the layered vocals just a little wider apart from each other in the chorus mix might create a bit more space, too. Who knows, though? I certainly am no expert.
Take care.
Thanks, Peter.

Moviz said 1438 days ago (November 11th, 2013)
Yes Peter,
I agree; I do think that maybe the contrast in the clarity of the single vocal and the 'chorale' so to speak is what makes the chorus more blurred or "hazy". Thanks for coming back to this….appreciated, cheers M

Every reason to be one of your favorites. It feels like one of those collabs with the traveling Wilburys, particularly that George Harrison/Roy Orbison vibe.

Mix
What kind of mix tools are you using? The mix sounds pretty aggressive, and there is distortion in all sorts of places.

Love the song and the general mix, though.

Thanks for
listening Vic; I used my GB and Ozone 3 and though i did want a more 'aggressive' feel to the chorus, maybe after the advice in some other comments, I overdid it, though through my headphones I'm satisfied; perhaps my headphones are not as 'touchy' as others LOL. Really pleased you liked the song though. I remember you didn't get to hear it through last time I posted, but you did comment very favourable, thanks again, M

sschedra said 1433 days ago (November 16th, 2013)
The is your version
of "Across the Universe". I like the song and the production. Technically, the only issue I have is that the vocals on the chorus seem to clip (on the second time you sing "It's true"), unless that is something in the background. That said the chorus is my favorite part. I will give a listen to the first version. Good job.

Thank you Stephen
Really pleased you liked this and maybe they do clip, but I don't hear it and wonder if that sharp drumbeat in true is what people are referring to. I have nevertheless gone back to it and lowered all the volumes, which has taken a bit of the 'mush' out of the chorus. Thanks so much for calling in to listen. I must listen to 'Across The Universe' now, regards M

Maurice,
I don't think it sounds like "Across the Universe", but its got the same kind of vibe. Also, like that song its got a great hook in the chorus. I kept humming the chorus to myself all day yesterday as I put insulation in the attic (not a pleasant task for a 60 year old guy).

that, as soon as i went to You-Tube to listen 'Across The Universe' Stephen; I understand what you mean about the 'vibe' though and boy that's sounds good to me that it stayed with you all day; that's praise enough for anyone, so thanks once again, cheers M
