A little background ... it's an old song, written when I was nineteen or twenty. A friend of mine had just told me how her best friend had committed suicide. A teen pregnancy and the parents of the lass forced her to give the child up for adoption. She had wanted to keep it. So I wrote this. Maybe not a tribute, perhaps more of a memorial.

The song was arranged in Magix Music Maker then exported as individual .wav files into Reaper for the final mix and master.

The vocals proved rather difficult to record as I changed/upgraded mic's and an audio interface mid-way through the recording (not a mistake I'll ever make again), so I had a helluva time trying to match the EQ's. But it is what it is and I'm pretty happy with it

Hope you like it, and I'm open to any feedback (and it's OK, I know I'm no Springsteen!!)

As a side note (and to prevent any potential copyright infringements), all the images in the clip were taken by me on a trip around the North/West Scottish coast.
