These old ghosts keep pouring out of the vault. I hope no one minds. This is another song from the early 90's basement tapes. I used to stay up all night recording in those days. Sometimes you feel like the only person on the planet when you do that...or like you're walking through the night to get somewhere. There's a reference in the lyrics to the TV show, "Kung Fu", too...because Kwai Chang was destined to walk the earth.

Yet Kwai Chang never saw the temptress. Only a woman, in need. smiley

This is a great piece. I'd be disappointed if you hadn't shared it.

Love this song.

Your comments really ring true for me. During that period of time I stayed up all night recording too. Interesting to imagine how many of us were probably up recording at the very same moments (3am and on through the night) just to further our vision.

In those days we had no greater hope for our music than to share tapes with a few of our closest friends (I think you have all of mine.) Now we have the fortunate ability to have thousands of listeners - many, complete strangers - from around the world. Thanks iCompositions! Thanks Baboon for sharing.

Thanks Kai, EF, RG, DD, Sele, Jolo!

Vap, you're right...when this song was written I had no inkling the internet or a site like iComp would ever exist. I had a dual tape deck and would make copies and hand them out.

How can I tell you this is my kind of song. I wish I could write that kind of lyrics. Road Movie type I guess. I love the way you worked your voice here. That "tremolo" is terrific I can feel the cold of the night and the loneliness of the trip you describe in your song. See ya
