Thanks for sharing your personal perspective. Which is probably shared by more than you know. I heard a while back that atheism is the world’s fastest growing religion.

Thanks for listening, Speck. I believe that fun fact (…”fastest growing religion”)…

More fun facts… I actually consider myself a strict agnostic with an atheist belief system. Basically- we don’t know one way or another, but I believe that there is no God. Of course, that’s kinda hard to get across through a song. :)

Excellent, Love those claps you use.
And very cool lyrics
permalink   Kara Square Sat, Nov 24, 2012 @ 9:01 AM
Thank you kindly! I included those claps here if you wanna use them. They’re live claps with a little layer of enhancement to make them solid sounding.

Great perspective. You’re quite the original Kara! Your music has such a delightful, down to earth, authentic and honest quality to it. And your voice is just so deliciously warm. Perfect use of unreal’s great track. Bravo!

Above all I have an open mind to hearing people speak their truth, and a great respect for those who dare to do it. Thanks for doing that. It makes me feel freer to do the same. :)

That, of course, being that pumpkin pie is terrible. ;-)

Cheers! I’m right there with ya’. Thanks for listening and for sharing your beliefs in your music, too.

Now, if you were closer, you’d have to try my girlfriend’s grandma’s pumpkin pie… it just might change your mind. OR the vegan pumpkin cheesecake with rum sauce Katie made… dude… :)

Lovely track. Great lyric and it’s got your sweet voice in it. And of course your belief in love is as relevant and important to you as any other belief is to anyone else and I’m cool as long as you don’t have to apologize for not believing in what you don’t.

Sigh…what a complicated review.

permalink   Kara Square Mon, Nov 26, 2012 @ 11:41 AM
:D Thank you, snowflake. It’s wonderful to hear that the warmth came through… that’s really the main point. :)

Beautiful song, i enjoyed the listening very much. Really lovely vocal. The lyrics are a little bit melanchonic, but i really like em. True things.

I like very much the verses:

“No, you dont need religion
To believe in love
I celebrate people

Congrats Kara

Thank you very much, TheDICE! I’m glad you appreciated the lyrics (thought ya’ would). Thanks, as always, for your support.

No one brings such warmth and honesty to a lyric as you do, Kara, and you’ve chosen the perfect accompaniment with unreal’s Buskers Holiday. It’s as good a mixture as mince pies and custard - not sure which one of you is the custard though!
permalink   Kara Square Sat, Dec 1, 2012 @ 9:55 AM
Ahhhh dear Ciggi! Thank you for your flattering, boosting support! unreal always appeals to the folky in me… so easy to get inspired by his instrumentals. I think he’s the custard. ;) (I’m not sure what the wink means. Ha.)

Thank you kindly, Steve! It’s always touching to hear that a lyric is relatable. Thanks for sharing that. :)
