The joyful day!

The Hand Above The Water

If you have seen any concerts you have probably heard this song ...

I dont think that any other one song of mine has gone through the changes that this one has ... the verse music used to be totally different ... very 80s U2ish rock ... the lyric has changed gender as I realized who the song was about ... and maybe the last change now ... the person that this song was about was a real obsessive ... regardless of a very strong attraction we never got involved in any way more than just friends ... although it came very close several times ... the new chorus is very much about obsession and control and need ... the words need a little tweaking still ...

I am hopefully going to go to an open mike tonight ... we'll see if the new words work ...
