Description
As last years Christmas collab At Christmas time was great fun to do, I have put together a new song for such a purpose.

What you hear at this stage is the base for you to put your contribution(s) in, so if you'd like to have a go, please feel free to add something, vocals or any instrument and I will blend it into the final production/mix. I hope many will join in and give a little contribution.

Send me an email at thor@blest.no if you'd like to join in, and I'll send you a track without my vocals.

I have written some words to this melody, but if you feel some of your own coming on, lets put them in a verse. If many do so there might be a challenge with getting enough room during the song though...

If you like to join, please sing all verses and choruses or play through the whole tune so I have a good base to cut and paste from.

I will ask that all contributions to be at my place within December 12th. Thanks!

As I took down the first sketch of this, I also lost all the reviews and comments on it. A big thank you to all that listened in and commented on that. Hope you enjoy this new recording as well...

Lyrics
Well here I am, searching through words.
Words reflecting myself.
And what comes down on paper is who I am.
- Do you think, we could be friends.

I hope, that you, will join me tonight.
Let's make a bridge from pier to pier.
Hold hands, be strong, be with me tonight.
Let me be - a friend.

Let no one, stay, outside tonight
Let our hearts make a chain,
Let the world know we all are one.

Let no one - stay - outside tonight...

----

Here is a new contribution from macjammer "Bent" with some additional lyrics:

In a time such as this,
no unity exists
to bring together,
that's what we need
souls to unite,
and to join, without fear
making all us - not them

Harmony friendly
And I thought the original was good! This should brush up real well Thor !!!!! A totally different feel, much more harmony friendly ;)

indeed
I thought so too. The first version was recorded right of when I had the melody and words coming to me, so this one has got to grow a little since then:) Looking forward to what you will come up with:)

Like i've said before
you have a terrific way with words. This really has a nice feel, the words go quite well with the music.
Nice to hear, your style really reminds me of Randy Newman on this one.

Way to go.

Randy Newman has a cool style so if you think there is a resemblance I'm thrilled:)

Thanks!

Ahh, this is so sweet
Love the intro, love the vibraphone (?) rift in there. You sound really good. This is as confident a performance as I have heard from you.
Sounds really good, thoddi. Don't you wish you had a house big enough to make sure no one had to sleep outside? Now, I dream.
Such sweet sentiments in this song. And I love that harp! Thank you sharing this!

That voice!
Ooooh, I love your voice! So sultry and full of feeling. Very nice guitar. Great arrangement.

If I may offer one bit of constructive advice. Go ahead and let your voice come out on the high notes. Set it free. It wants to so badly. That great voice should not be contained.

Highest praise to you my friend.
