I'm not a religious person and the subject of this beautiful song is not religion. Written by Jim White in 2007. That's how he describes this tune : "A song about growing old and settling into a sort of tender acceptance of life. There's a film by Ingmar Bergman called The Wild Strawberries that reminds me of what I was trying to get at in that song".

Recorded and mixed today, Sunday 16th October 2011. There's one little drum loop there. Rest is Dyl-home-made.

Those accompanying guitar parts are one of your best traits but I have to say that I really heard a lot of feeling coming through your voice this time. The lyrics that Mr. White penned are splendid, touching places that some of us know only too well. Angelic performance from a handsome devil smiley

New tune to me but instantly acceptable and so appealing with it's gentle lilt. Love your voice in this, it has a soft and reassuring tone to it. This track would have fitted well on 'Planet waves' alongside tracks like Forever Young. I think this is one of the best things you've done.

Holy smokes Amigo! This is sounding wonderful Dyl! Love how open the mix feels and of course you're wonderful vocal delivery smiley

I was just listening to some shuffle on my iPhone and came across our two collabs today, so Dyl has been in my ears and mind.

Sure hope things are well your way brother. Super!!!

What I think I admire most about you is the ease with which you achieve these sounds - it all sounds effortless, never as if you are trying too hard. It is wonderful.

Sounding great Dyl, on the religous theme, I guess everyones got their own opinions, I'm currently midway through a short course dealing with theology, what I'm finding intresting is the debates on 'does God exist' folk can get rather heated on that conundrum I've noticed.

Back to the tune Dyl, whatever the inspiration be it 'God given or 'other' as long as there's cool music like this as a result, cool! smiley
