Yeah...

Consider me a fan of this one. I'm sure in the future there will be many times where I'll be falling asleep to this or be called any variation of a homosexual by my friends while listening to it in the car.

It's a beutiful song from the beginning to the end. Definatly a calm chilling song, and theres not many vocalist that I like, and I prefer songs without one, but this one is excellent. In my opinion, perfect for coming home after a stressfull day. It's worth getting, and ignoring all your friends who would call you a homosexual person. Then again, theres nothing wrong to be one, not that I am one ;;>.>
Anyway, Good song, I love it, Definatly going into my iPod today before I go to work.

And indeed, this is a good lullaby song too. :3

Thank you for this remix. <3

I doubt there's any stripped down version of this mix available without the singing, eh? The lyrics are entirely too cheesy to stand hearing. It completely ruins what would otherwise be an excellent CC remix.

The vocals are amazing, as always, and it's always refreshing to hear Pixie's voice again in a new mix.

That being said, I have my gripes. The drums really do bug me, because they constantly feel awkward, and just don't quite fit. Pretty much what the judges said in that regard. A second gripe is that the piece doesn't really feel like it goes anywhere, but in listening a second time I don't think it's entirely supposed to go somewhere, so that's more of a personal choice.

Back to the positives, the lyrics are well-written, and a nice fit to the melody. I don't know if I personally like that they are different lyrics from the original, but again, personal choice, and despite that the new lyrics are very imagery-filled. Finally, I will always commend Pixietricks for her ability to sing as well as mix, as I am totally clueless on the latter (and the former!).

Good job, defiantely a keeper.

An excellent piece, I've been waiting for this one to be officially released, from when I heard the WIP. I'm glad that some more chill-out, downbeat stuff is making it onto OCR, and even more so that Jill's the one doing it! I applaud you Jill, as this is one of the few solo pieces you have on OCR. A piece like this shows that not only do you possess a lovely, entrancing singing voice, but that you are also well talented in the producing of the music itself. This will be immediately added to my sleep playlist.

On another note... this would have made for a great Valentine's day release :P It's strange... the lyrics to this song mimic very closely a poem I wrote, just two days ago for Valentine's Day. The start of not being able to sleep at night, and the reference to a ghost, reminded me immediately of it. I guess i've seen stranger coincidences :P Good luck on the recital tommorow!

Zanam, you know Valentine's Day is today, right? ;)

Great mix!! Even though I've collabed with Jill several times now, I love hearing her solo stuff.

It's difficult to make a remix with lyrics that's any good, but this one is one of the few exceptions. I think the lyrics really add something to the song, and without them it would sound kind of bland. Good job overall.
