As we approach the end of the year, and seemed to have survived the anticipated apocolypse, I want to wish you a blessed winter and an illuminated new year. I am so grateful that we are together in music.

I started writing this song at Hanukkah which observes the miracle of light during a time of persecution, seduction and violence. At that time, negotiations were being made. Since that time, we have seen heartbreaking tragedy. This is my prayer for peace and healing in the new year.


Typically, I would have tried to create a remix, but I am busy at work on my first solo release and am committed to not getting too distracted from that project (which will include many of our ccMixter community members who have so graciously shared source material with us all. I’ve included the acoustic and bass guitars that I relied on when recording. I did not include the drum loop (which is just an out of the box loop from my software), but if you want it for any reason — just holler. Drums are definitely not my strong suit. Also, below I noted the chord changes (not terribly challenging — primarily a three-chord riff) Stems are dry except for last high harmony for which I cannot seem to remove the effects for some reason… hmmmm.


update: I revised vox2 and uploaded the new file individually.


THE SAME LIGHT SHINES

the same light shines on all off us after the darkness falls
illuminates the choices we made
as we follow fate’s treacherous and sensuous road

we face battles in our gardens
we face battles in our hearts
as the new year starts
but let’s face each other in peace now

throw your stones and I’ll throw mine
grappling with the force of our wills to see who will survive
the first to surrender through eons of pride
to face each other in peace now

simple words for simple wishes
simply stated simply sung out
to face each other in peace now

we face battles in our gardens
we face battles in our hearts
as the new year starts
we face battles in our gardens
we face battles in our hearts
as the new year starts

The same land grounds our shared dreams
while mistrust across divides
make a vow as the fires cease
to face each other in peace now
let’s face each other in peace in peace now
face each other in peace

we face battles in our gardens
we face battles in our hearts
as the new year starts
but let’s face each other in peace now
