Sigh … gutwrenching but tender and strong all at the same time. So frustrating and sad it is when we see the sadness and pain of others and we wonder what we could do to save them before they take such drastic and irreversible actions.

My heart goes out to you in remembering your friend. You have to ask yourself why he paid you a visit. Maybe just to make sure you hug yours a little closer this year.

Maybe we all will :-).

Just the kind of emotive work I most adore. Great job Scomber.

Thank you for your insightful words.
He did the most selfish thing that one can do, but I reckon he’s finally much happier now.
Just went to the letter box and got a Christmas card from his wife Jenifer!
I haven’t spoken to her for five years. Very strange but kind of uplifting. Its a freaky world… Thanks essesq x

Sorry I never got round to posting that piano sample but it did not stop you producing a great tribute to your friend. Sometimes we have to do what is right for ourselves and often this can mean hurt for others.

In the end I think I would have decided to sack the piano player anyway - wasn’t really enough room as it turned out. Thanks RT.

Quite delicate and very real, the lyrics speak so urgently to me. Thanks for lending your voice and shedding your tears to my instrumental piece.

RIP Andre.

Thanks Khidir for a track that allowed an easy build in emotion from an initial fragility and hope to the final anger about fleeting mortality.

No guarantee in this life that any of us will come to clarity and live wholly sanely and contented - some fall by the wayside never to be known again…perhaps songs like this one can help to remind us of life’s beauty and fragility both.

Amazing Scomber. You’ve written a touching and truthful piece… The story really adds value to the music.

One part of your description did make me chuckle though - ‘stop hanging around you’re dead’…

Great work again (and your 9 thousandth mix this month i see?!… man, you’re a hit factory!)
