Title: Take It Easy (New Song) 6/12/2012
Post by: KULPDOGG on June 15, 2012, 12:40:38 pm
so far this is what I can make out from the lyrics:
-------------------

If you're old and lonely in life
You've got to let it go
Let you to a million stars and then

Soon your Moon slowly dies
To yourself and to your light
The Shamans can't always know limits fade, as will you

When the music crumbles down
And it will
Take it easy
Take it easy, baby

The Sun won't rise
You said it twice to yourself through the night
The Shaman's there, you've always known
And when it's dark, it gets low

When your music crumbles down
And it will
Take it easy
Take it easy

When Heaven lives around you
And it will
Take it easy
Take it easy


------------------

Young to let it go
But old enough to know
Connected to a million stars and lights

You sang in thoughts, sang it twice
To yourself and to the night
It's natural, the Shaman's prayer
When its fire gets low

And as your castle crumbles down
And it will
Take it easy
Take it easy, baby

Know you have to go
Just wanted you to know
I'll be ready when you gotta go home

You sang in thoughts, sang it twice
To yourself, to the night
The Shaman's prayer, it's natural
When its fire gets low

When your castle crumbles down
And it will
Take it easy
Take it easy

When Heaven wraps around you
And she will
Take it easy
Take it easy

Connected to a million stars and lights


------------------
Discuss!!!!  ;D
it's probably not 100% correct, obviously given the one recording we have so far.

2013 fall tour new lyrics
Take It Easy
------------------------------------


I'm old enough to know
Too young to let it go

Connected to a million stars and lights

I know you have to go
Do we follow what we know?
I'll be here for you in the night


Say it once, say it twice
To yourself, to the night
The Shaman's prayer, it's natural
When it's quiet, it gets low


And as your castle crumbles down
And it will
Take it easy
Take it easy, eh

Are you waiting all the time
For some modern things you like?
Have you ever broken your own heart?


Say it once, say it twice
To yourself, to the night
The Shaman's prayer, it's natural
When it's quiet, it gets low


And as your castle crumbles down
And it will
Take it easy
Take it easy

And as Heaven wraps around you
And she will
Take it easy
Take it easy

Say it once, say it twice
To yourself, to the night
The Shaman's prayer, it's natural
When it's quiet, it gets low


And as your castle crumbles down
And it will
Take it easy
Take it easy

And as Heaven wraps around you
And she will
Take it easy
Take it in
Take it easy
Take it in
Take it easy
Take it in, easy

Great job as always Kulp, didn't even think of Shamans!

Have some suggestions:

If youre holding on to life
If you've got to let it go
Connected to a millions stars tonight

Say it once, say it twice
To yourself and to your light
The Shamans can't always know
when it's right, and when its not

When the music crumbles down
And it will
Take it easy
Take it easy, easy

Say it once, say it twice
To yourself and to the night
The Shaman's there, you've always known
when it's right, it gets low

When your music crumbles down
And it will
Take it easy
Take it easy

I really like Harmonium's take on the lyrics!  I haven't listened to it enough to have any of my own opinions (bad nessaholic).  If you're right, it could be more writings about her illness and how she had writers block.

I am very much looking forward to this song! Despite the noisy recording, it sounds amazing. I cannot believe you guys could decipher words out of that, though, the lyrics are beautiful.

That song is flawless. Can't believe people are talking when Vanessa is in the same room. Anyway, the world's full of idiots, that's no news. This is one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard, I can tell that even with people talking over it. Vanessa is the best and she's only getting better. Thank you Vanessa! And to the person who uploaded it!

That link was originally posted by Pushglow in the Live shows thread. All credits go to her or him of course.

That song will make you cry. I know it will when i'll hear it in a cleaner recording, but i can just imagine and get the vibe from it. seriously i haven't heard something that good since Rabbits came out haha. I'm working in a store and they were playing Ordinary Day (which is my fave from BNN) but i was shocked at how i don't care about this record compared to the true masterpieces that are Harmonium, H&T and Rabbits. I just realized that yesterday, V is the best artist ever, I just needed to get that out, sorry about that :D

Thanks, Rabbits.

Nessa does it again, in my opinion. I like the lyrics especially, although I'm not that hot on the title.  :) Is this the sound and direction she's going for with this album. If so, it looks like she's getting even more shaman/seance type music.

I was wondering if someone tried playing it on the piano? I think I get the intro and the chorus right but can't hear what she's playing in the verses. I love that song SO MUCH. It brings me in another universe, this needs to be recorded. I'm sure it will¨. It has to. I won't let another 'All is Well' or 'Best Behaviour' pass me by ;)

Post by: Fred_Saboya on July 13, 2012, 03:34:51 pm
what i think it is:


"if you’re holding the unknown
you’ve got to let it go again
connected to a million stars and then

say it once, say it twice
do your sound through the night.
the shamans can’t always live,
when it’s quiet, it slows.

when the music crumbles down
and it will
take it easy
take it easy

say it once, say it twice
do your sound through the night
the shaman’s where you always know
and when it’s quiet, it gets low.

when your music crumbles down
and it will
take it easy
take it easy

when heaven lives around you
and it will
take it easy
take it easy"

Posted by Arwen in a different forum (shows with Stevie)

http://www.mediafire.com/?7bnp7pcb3kudi4r (http://www.mediafire.com/?7bnp7pcb3kudi4r)

I hope it's alright, wanted to share it here! This is AMAZING! Thanks so much for the recording, it's a beautiful song, you can hear/understand at least 90% of the lyrics now, I'm so happy. I don't know how accurate this is, but what I understand from the lyrics:

Young to let it go
but old enough to know
Connected to a millions stars tonight

Say it once, say it twice
Do yourself into the night
It's natural the shamans prayer
When it's quiet, it gets low

When your castle crumbles down, and it will
take it easy
take it easy

know you have to go
just wanted you to know
I'll be ready when you (?) ( this line sounds like "When you get to home" but I don't think that's right )

Say it once, say it twice
do yourself into the night
the shamans prayer, it's natural
when it's quiet, it's low

when your castle crumbles down,
and it will
take it easy
take it easy

and when heaven lives around you
and she will
take it easy
take it easy

Connected to a million stars tonight...


Not too different from Fred_Saboya's post, they weren't too far off. Sorry, there is still some of the words I can't quiet understand, maybe someone else will hear what I don't. I hope one of these days it makes it to a studio or there is some kind of 'official lyrics' posted!

Thanks for the new recording!!!!

Here's what I got:
------------------

Young to let it go
But old enough to know
Connected to a million stars and lights

You sang in thoughts, sang it twice
To yourself and to the night
It's natural, the Shaman's prayer
When its fire gets low

And as your castle crumbles down
And it will
Take it easy
Take it easy, baby

Know you have to go
Just wanted you to know
That I'll be ready when you gotta go home

You sang in thoughts, sang it twice
To yourself, to the night
The Shaman's prayer, it's natural
When its fire gets low

When your castle crumbles down
And it will
Take it easy
Take it easy

When Heaven wraps around you
And she will
Take it easy
Take it easy

Connected to a million stars and lights


------------------


and it's good to know that the song officially has a name... for now..

KULPDOGG, thanks for the post. "That I'll be ready when you gotta go home" sounds right, I couldn't seem to understand the rest of the line the first time of listening.

It's interesting to see other peoples opinions, everyone will hear something different ;) Makes me more excited to find out what the 'true' lyrics are.

Sounds like Brooke Waggoner. It's wonderful. c:

I hear "I'll be ready when you go" (with maybe something at the end of that for the line everyone's debating)

also, the last 'take it easy' sounds like 'Take it in, easy'.

This song has been echoing in my mind lately. Moreover, it serves an important reminder for me to remain calm and still try to find happiness in small things even though things are not going as well as we want them to be. And I believe that this message that it wants us to remember is very significant in our everyday life.

I agree. I have been playing this song over and over lately. It's nice to remind yourself when everything is going to shit, to just "take it easy" and things will eventually get better.

What a beautiful song! I love that Vanessa sings about shamans and witch doctors and such in her recent songs. I find it really compelling. And, for me too, the message of the song is very much of use at the moment... Huh, taking it easy isn't always that easy, right? :D

oh yeah! especially the "and it will" gives me shiver! because of the way she sings it but also because of the meaning of it. I love the theme of the song. You will always go through hard time, you can't run away from them so just take it easy.

This is easily the best song I've heard since.. the rabbits songs ! :) but it might be my fave V song!

I'm having a hard time figuring this song out. ;A;
When I looked for help, they said that when the note's in C or F you use the sharp key, but still it doesn't sound right.
The dynamics for the left hand also makes it hard for me. :((

Someone kind enough to post a tutorial, or turn the notes to letters, or simply teach me how to read notes (I can only read music sheets without sharps (those in C major/A minor) since I never had a piano teacher, stuff I only learned from YouTube.)

 ???  ;D

My interpretation of the Take It Easy. For the more recent version, we had most of the lyrics in common (Kulpdogg). I bolded a couple of differences that I noted. Take a gander:

I'm old enough to know
Too young to let it go
Connected to a million stars and lights

I know you had to go
Do we follow what we know?
I'll be here for you in the night

Say it once, say it twice
To yourself, to the night
Shaman's prayer, it's natural
When it's quiet it gets slow
And as your castle crumbles down, and it will
Take it easy, take easy

And are you waiting all the time
For somebody that you like?
Have you ever broken your own heart?

Say it once, say it twice
To yourself, to the night
Shaman's prayer, it's natural
When it's quiet it gets slow
And as your castle crumbles down, and it will
Take it easy, take easy

As heaven wraps around you
And she will
Take it easy
Take it in
Easy

Say it once, say it twice
To yourself, to the night
Shaman's prayer, it's natural
When it's quiet it gets slow
And as your castle crumbles down, and it will
Take it easy, take easy

As heaven wraps around you
And she will
Take it easy
Take it in
Take it easy
Take it in
Easy

So according to the lyrics that were posted on her Youtube channel that mystery line is actually "Are you waiting all the time for some unending delight?". I would never have been able to make that out myself lol.

Anyways here are the "official" lyrics:

I'm old enough to know, too young to let it go
Connected to one billion stars and lights
I know you have to go
Do we follow what we know?
Ill be here for you in the night

Say it once, say it twice, to yourself, to the night
A shaman’s prayer
It’s natural
When it’s quiet, get slow

As your castle crumbles down and it will, take it easy take it easy
When heaven wraps around you and she will, take it easy
Take it in easy

Are you waiting all the time for some unending delight?
Have you ever broken your own heart?

Say it once, say it twice, to yourself, to the night
A shaman’s prayer
It’s natural
When it’s quiet get slow

As your castle crumbles down and it will, take it easy take it easy
When heaven wraps around you and she will, take it easy
Take it in easy

Take it in
Take it
Take it in easy
