Reflections from 2020:

Personal tragedy strikes most of us in our lifetimes. When that moment you fall from the Tower comes, and the world as you knew it is gone, finding cushions where you fall can save your life. I hope you're blessed with the support of true friends as I was when it happens. The songs on this album were recorded on my first digital piano, gifted to me when I needed it most.

lyrics

There was a time when my world was collapsing
And I stepped through your open door
With the blood in my veins sadly cooling
You warmed me and let me pour

And I slept away tears softly falling
And I wept away rage and regret
While I swept away empty companions
And you kept away fear ‘til I could forget

And though painful I started emerging
And though tired you watched me transform
In the sunlight I felt my blood surging
And you smiled at me from your door

And I slept away tears softly falling
And I wept away rage and regret
While I swept away empty companions
And you kept away fear ‘til I could forget

Now it’s your turn
You know it’s been coming for some time now
This is the time
Trust me as I trusted you

When I slept away tears softly falling
And I wept away rage and regret
While I swept away empty companions
And you kept away fear ‘til I could forget

And I won’t let you forget
No, I won’t let you forget
