This track is the stand out lead track from my forthcoming LP/DL only release entitled '2: New Day Dawns'.
I wrote the lyrics for my step-daughter Laura, who I initially envisaged singing it with me for the release, but as she was away at University, and because I had heard Emma's amazing range of vocal I asked her to record the female part. What a fantastic job she did of it. Thank you Emma. Maybe one day this will be performed live on stage and Laura will assist me.
The song tells a story of two lovers who share all the good things that they have to live for after a major disaster. Envisaged as a hand in hand walk conversation where they tell each other of all the reasons why they must carry on and imagine a brighter future.
Gabriel and I worked on this track a couple of years ago and released it on Soundcloud only. This version is as far as we got with the track, and is just too good to leave in my musical vault.
