Let it die in silence and f#ck her if she gets mad... also, f#ck you for not getting thing in writing before you had her in on your tune and create her own melody... I hope it’s a lesson you’ll remember!

If a singer you respect tells you that the vocal melody that you scratched out sucks and that she/he has a better idea, be open to that... particularly if voice isn’t your 1st instrument... but, that means sharing songwriting, so be open to that, too
Yep I'll admit naivety crept in, never underestimate stuff like this again. Don't mind giving people their due where it's due. I suppose in a way I saw it like when somebody like a Jeff Buckley sings "Hallelujah" he takes it to unreal heights vocally but ultimately still a Leonard Cohen song.
