This is a cool, laid-back song I've had lying around, taking shape and evolving for a while, and I finally recorded it in mid March 2006. I was a big 'Heatwave' and 'Earth Wind and Fire' fan and this is probably a result of their influence. It is mainly sequenced, using two contrasting drum loops, double bass, violins and cellos, piano, Rhodes and a 'portamento vibes' riff; plus a 'live' acoustic guitar riff, harmonies and lead vocal. I know this vocal style isn't to everyone's taste (even when performed by such luminaries as Johnny Wilder, never mind by me!) and I apologise for that. I've had my share of vocal problems which I'm just beginning to sort out, and I'll re-do it in time when I feel I can better do it justice.
Lyrics
Chorus
We will always be connected,
Wherever in the world we may be;
We will always be connected,
Close your eyes and think of me.

Verse 1
Her eyes cast me a thought,
An idea to make me smile,
That I turned around in my hands a while,
And wondered at its beauty and simplicity.

And in time it came to be,
That's the way of inevitability,
And we held the whole world in our hands a while,
And tasted its darkness and complexity.

Bridge1
Do you believe, like I do, that our dreams are a place
Where our souls can prepare for the freedom death brings?
In a landscape of shadows where memory steals on silent wings
I will find you, look behind you.

Chorus
We will always be connected,
Wherever in the world we may be;
We will always be connected,
Close your eyes and think of me.

Verse 2
Surrounded by her love
That, like the raging sea,
Destroyed all I had, swept my friends from me,
And trapped me in a cell of greenest jealousy.

A drowning man will cling
To any rope that's thrown,
But still, in dreams, she comes to me and whispers 'I won't let you go',
And I yield to her beauty and duplicity.

Bridge2
You'll believe, like I do, that our dreams are the place
Where our souls can prepare for the freedom death brings.
In a landscape of shadows your secrets sing to me alone,
Now wake up, pick up the telephone..

Telephone chorus

We will always be connected,
Wherever in the world we may be;
We will always be connected,
Close your eyes and think of me...

Close your eyes...
Close your eyes and think of me...
