This is a song about when my ex cheated on me after we had secretly got back together after my father had passed away. I was trying to tell him that doing that to me whilst i was still grieving had been worse than the first time we had broken up. At least then it had been somehow honest. But to kick me when i was down was terrible and at the time i never thought i would recover.
Another track from the M'Naughton Rule album.

Featuring the production, genius, piano, guitar and vocals of Jo Webb
With Katy Lee on BV's and Alex Toff on Drums and Dave Marks (the ex) on bass!

This song like all the other songs on the album feature a real live string quartet.

Third listen and still discovering more reasons to rave about this!

Love is a wonderful thing (it is a shame that very few understand even the most basic elements needed to create or sustain it.)

Yea its amazing he played on this song but never realised that it was about him

Instead he called me up about a song that wasn't about him. smiley DOH!

People do hurt people Lenny you are right but what happens when the people can't take that hurt away??? Well they right songs or have songs written about them (even though they really aren't worth it)

Good people do stupid things, bad people do evil things.

Anyway once again i was lucky to be able to get out how i feel and allow peole to go through those emotions with me. music is both a blessing and curse.

I think subject matter and lyrically, there is a definite Aimee Mann thing there. Don'tbe offended, I think Aimee is one of the greatest artists in the past 30 years- and I'm quickly seeing that the gem that you are is just as special.

Actually- while I love Aimee's voice- her monotone style is something that can be an acquired taste. You will NEVER have to worry about being that or an acquired taste.

You have the voice of an angel.

I was just watching an incredible television special on one of my songwriting heroes on PBS tonight: Paul Simon. He had some awesome guests on there: Stevie Wonder, Yolanda Adams, Ladysmith Black Mambaso, James Taylor and others. But the artist that I really connected with tonight was the amazing Allison Krauss. She, to me is one of the finest voices in quite some time. Immediately after hearing her, I began to think of women artists that the world should be hearing more of and guess what, YOU were one of the first ones that I thought of.

This song is just another reason why you should never quit.

This song is near perfect.

You are too.

One of the best songs on this site for sure.

Your voice is so mesmerizing. What I can't understand is why alot of the best songs in this world emanate from bad experiences? I hope all works out for you.

Please, keep singing. It remains one of the most therapeutic things that no one can take away from you.

Another brilliant performance, as always, thanks for sharing Nadie.

Thanks everyone for the lovely comments.

I have been lucky enough to find someone new and he is brilliant.

The song was written at a time when i thought there was no hope.

I'm still keeping away from bass players tho! smiley

The mature emotional voice of experience. There is no substitute. Where is this album available? Very smooth tune. I just checked your website and I looked up the definition of M'Naughton Rule...heh, good stuff. Appropriate title. If some dude cheated on you, he'd have to use insanity as a defense, because that is NUTS. Pardon my French, but yer totally hot!
smiley

Anyway, I think if you keep on keeping on...success won't be far behind.

One of my favs off the album... pure emotion wrapped in a gorgeous voice.

People, if you haven't bought the album yet .. buy it, you won't regret a penny of it.

Nadie, if you contact www.awal.com (artists without a label), they will act as a label, with no binding long term agreements, they will then assist you in getting the album onto itunes. Kate Walsh (from Brighton) did this, she ended up being picked as itunes artist of the week, she was recently number 1 in the itunes folk album charts, she's now well and truely on the way .. go for it Nadie.

Dave

Nads, your a beautiful thing to behold. a bit of a Carol king thing going on here for me. smiley whole 70's type of vibe. perhaps the singers you used to listen to? sometimes the worst things can make the best songs because we are so alone we have no other release. Love you Nads, if it took a broken heart to get here it was worth it to your listeners. So a big thank you for being the sacrificial lamb so we could hear such beauty.

Hi Nadie, to quote your own words "If you can't see what this does to me?" Listening to you sing, and the quality of your music. I don't know what to say, other that "It is awesome, I'm melting". I am a lyric lover, and I have to say that you are a great lyricist. If I were you I would take a very good look at yourself in the mirror and realize that you have "IT". Everything that it takes to be a musical superstar. I have not heard one song that you have done that hasn't been great. Please keep writing and post, post, post these awesome tunes.
I have been on this site since 2005 and you are by far one of my favorite artists here.
Thank you so much for sharing "YOUR EMOTIONS" with us all.
Take care.
All the best to you.

Thanks for this one, nadiestar. I personally know this feeling...of a secret rebound back into the arms of an ex-relationship. This is probably some of the most 'professional-sounding' work that I have come across on iCompositions. Excellent songwriting here on every level. The chords and ornaments added from the string quartet definitely add a much-appreciated broad stroke of warmth and fullness into this soundscape. Nice one! ~Justin

i just happened to stumble into this song tonight, quite by accident.

and what i found is one of the most compelling songs i've heard online in quite a while. this is just absolutely fantastic! the vocal performance is wonderful and soulful without being excessive or dwelling. the musical performance(s) are simply outstanding.

this gets my ridiculously good song of the night vote! of course, i was aghast not to see the download button, because this is a no-brain instant download otherwise.

thank you for a wonderful stumbling! looking forward to more!

I'm not sure why I satrted here...but the title "I break twice" is stting up such a great hook... your voice is resigned with restraned passion... excellent and convincing... i also enjoyed your players... everything is so well placed... and nothing gets in the way of the song...

don't want to it-pick... but old ears need lyrics... and what I caught was great!... it all starts with the lyric for me...
