I have wanted to write a jazz waltz for a long time and when Mary suggested a collaboration I knew this was the right occasion because I have admired Mary's jazz vocal since I joined iCompositions.
Mary agreed to write lyrics. This is her first lyrics. And her first jazz waltz. And I am very amazed with the result.

My Song Is Flat Lyrics and Vocals by Mary McGrath Copyright 15 Feb 2014 All rights reserved
Come over here Please sit next to me There’s something I want To explain to you
There's something inside That must be set free For now…somehow
I have been holding These feelings for years They're hard to keep quiet With so many tears
I cannot control My feeling so low Somehow
I have been waiting so long My music's no longer a song I need to get hold of a tune My song is flat
Don't you know I've been waiting so long My music’s no longer a song I need to get hold of a tune My song is flat
