My songs – Intercontinental

This track started life when I was learning to use the new software that I had bought for work – Cubase VST. It has a very Massive Attacky vibe and I am very pleased with it. So pleased in fact that I asked Antti Lehtola (one of the many people who I have come to know through newsgroups) to write lyrics for it. When he tragically died I asked Joy Green to write the lyrics for me as a tribute to him. Chris Naden offered to sing it for me and I we were all very pleased with the end result. Apologies to Joy if the lyrics are incorrect – I couldn’t find my original references – so had to transcribe the lyrics from recordings.

Lyrics
My love I know you’re beautiful
Though I’ve never seen your face
Its there in every line you write
A touch of truth, a touch of grace

And though we’re hours and miles apart
And we cannot even touch
I can feel you in my heart tonight
And I want you oh so much

They like to call it fantasy
I guess its hard to understand
How a love so deep
Can grown without the touch of lips or hand
But you and I know different
Love comes in different kinds
And what we have is a meeting of our souls, our hearts and minds

I feel like you are next to me
Feel your fingers on my skin
I can hear you in my mind my love
Breathing out as I breathe in

I smell the jasmine on your hair
Taste the sweetness in your kiss
And I wonder if reality could truly be more real than this

And your beauty is a light to me
Shining through the darkest night
The words we share are all it takes
To make the world feel good and right

And even if we should never meet
Never kiss and never hold
I will keep you in my heart my love
until the sun burns dark and cold
