This is a collaboration with Sam Hacker, a Brit living in Austria.  We visit the same musicians web forum and Sam had asked for someone to put music to a lyric he’d penned following the break up with his girlfriend, Monika. After numerous messages back and forth we finalised the lyrics as a joint exercise and I really think they’re very strong in terms of sentiment and allusion.  Unfortunately I’ve taken a long time to complete the song as I’ve struggled to find the exact melodies, arrangement and instrumentation to do the lyrics justice. I think we’re nearly there now!
