I haven’t written a pop song in a long time, but Stefan set it up so sweetly. The song structure and melodic base is his. Haskel added some of his inimitable guitar stylings to sweeten up the mix. I played bass and sang. Drums are courtesy of loops supplied with my DAW.

This song is inspired by the Catalyst project, but I missed the deadline because there is an army of vocals that needed to be wrangled into position and that took some time. There is no lead vocal. There is a melodic line sung by three voices that break into harmony during the choruses. The choruses are supported by a choir of additional voices. I was thinking about the choir as a representation of a cosmic army.



Vocal stems are uploaded separately.

Also shared as an additional file is an instrumental version.

BE HERE WITH ME


More than amends
Time to transcend
Where there is truth
Glory and darkness.

Trust when it ends
It begins again
Ready or not
With or without us

Be here with me

After we emerge from the shock
I’ll follow limits set by love
I’ll share as I can even if it’s not enough
Doing what I can to lift us up

Be here with me

I’m not grieving aspirations
They’re just songbirds escaping cages
Of projection expectation
Flying winds of transformation.

Beautiful and dangerous
Different for each of us
That we got this far says so much
About what endures or is tenuous

Be here with me

After we emerge from the shock
I’ll follow limits set by love
I’ll share as I can even if it’s not enough
Doing what I can to lift us up

Be here with me
