I had a couple of recording sessions with Samira Midhat back in ~2005-2009. Two beautiful songs are included on this album. This one’s from 2005 and it sounds amazing considering I recorded both the acoustic guitar and the vocals with a cheap Leem dynamic mic on a Tascam 4-track! I added the sound of wind blowing through poplar trees, making it a nice fit on this record. I grew up on a farm and when I went to bed I always listened to this beautiful sound until I fell asleep.


have you seen me lately?
I didn't know what to say to you
I wish you were here 'though

can't you be here 'though?
in front of you I am

can you see that now?
here I am
in front of you I stand

come in closer
come by

be here
please be here
please can you be here
be here
'cause I need you to
be here
please be here
