about

The original plan was to record at least five of the compositions, and keep the four best tracks for the present EP. However, time constraints and technology determined which songs ultimately made it on the album.

Three « live » takes of « Hope » were recorded at the end of the session, on the morning of Sunday January 27, after a challenging and exhausting night. Even after digital fairy dusting, the overall quality is not quite there, so the piece is included here as a demo.

I'll get to record it properly later, hopefully...

Lyrics

verse 1

life took back your cherries bowl
in the long run even heaven takes its toll
be strong baby don't you cry
joyful thoughts will illuminate your eye

verse 2

you hardly put a foot wrong
but the way to paradise is long
you can learn from each mistake
the lesson most apposite for your sake

verse 3

see the clouds are not that grey
any moment the sun might shine its ray
sing a simple lullaby
let melody kiss melancholy goodbye

pre-chorus

hush now
tomorrow's another day
why worry this one away
now how can you make the most of this

chorus

hopeful sunrise
a new beginning
the smile in your eyes
keeps me going

last chorus

hopeful sunrise
a new beginning
the smile in your eyes
keeps me going

glorious surprise
the muse is calling
with a song in her eyes
she keeps me going
