about

ORIGINALLY RELEASED on DECEMBER 31, 2008, this was made for an Anijunkie.com contest my dad thought would be a good match for me to enter. They never announced a winner. Anijunkie.com no longer exists, even.

The song is Duvet by bõa. And it's hilarious that it's a cover because that means it's a duvet cover. And that's another word for a bedsheet. GLORY!

And now, five years later, I've finally mixed it (more or less) correctly.

Alice/yofauner did the violin. It's the best. Dee bey-eest, even. www.youtube.com/user/yofauner

about

Skye Hawaii

Skye frolics through and delves into in ev'ry metaphorical acre of the expansive, fruitful meadow of the creative arts. He's an amateur author, actor, artist, comedian, composer, film-maker, musician, playwright, singer-songwriter, and just plain ol' writer. He also likes drumming out rhythms on his thighs.

He doesn't really know what he's doing, but, needless to say, he's doing a lot of it.

Track Name: Duvet, 2008 (Cover Remastered)
(I do know that "repair" is not the right words. But it's what I always heard, and I thought it worked well for this cover. I mean, come on, it's not like this is the most faithful cover ever, anyway.)

You don't even feel a thing a
You don't even feel a thing a
You don't even feel a thing a

And you don't seem to understand.
A shame you seemed an honest man.
And all the fears you hold so dear
Will turn to whisper in your ear.
And you know what they say might hurt you,
And you know that it means so much,
And you don't even feel a thing.

I am falling...
I am fading...
I have lost it all.

And you don't seem the lying kind.
A shame that I can read your mind.
And all the things that I repair,
Candlelit smile that we both share.
And you know I don't mean to hurt you,
But you know that it means so much,
And you don't even feel a thing.

I am falling...
I am fading...
I am drowning, help me to breathe.
I am hurting...
I have lost it all...
I am losing, help me to breathe.
Help me... to... breathe.
Track Name: Duvet, 2008 (Instrumental Remastered)
This is an instrumental track.

Well, okay, you can hear someone saying, "you don't even feel a thing a you don't even feel a thing a" X infinity during the verse. ... sure. Nevermind. I was wrong this time.
Track Name: Duvet, 2008 (Vocals Remastered)
(Since you clicked on THESE lyrics for some reason, I will try to transcribe all the contrapuntal harmonies you're hearing.)

You don't even feel a thing a
You don't even feel a thing a
You don't even feel a thing a

And you don't seem to understand. (Aah-aah... aah-aah... x infinity)
A shame you seemed an honest man. (Aah-aah-oh...)
And all the fears you hold so dear (dear--dear)
Will turn to whisper in your ear. (Ah...)
And you know what they say might hurt you,
And you know that it means so much,
And you don't even feel a thing.

I am falling...
I am fading...
I have lost it all.

(And you don't seem) And you don't seem the lying kind. (Once again, aah-aah... aah-aah... x infinity) (kind)
A shame that I can read your mind. (Ah...)
And all the things that I repair, (pair-pair-pair)
Candlelit smile that we both share. (Ah-ahh...)
And you know I don't mean to hurt you,
But you know that it means so much,
And you don't even feel a thing. (feel ... a ... thing)

I am falling... (You don't even feel a thing and you don't even feel...)
I am fading...
I am drowning, help me to breathe.
I am hurting... (two others voices repeat these lines in a semi-round)
I have lost it all...
I am losing, help me to breathe.
Help me... to... breathe.
