Description
This is a collab I did with an extremely talented singer/songwriter named Petra Borén. Please check out her wonderful music here:

http://www.myspace.com/petraboren

She also did the painting that you see part of on this page. It's called 'Min ängel..hold me'.

When we decided we wanted to do a song together I dusted off one of my old acoustic pieces that I thought her voice would be perfect on. I was so right!

Lyrics
Are you tired of being lonely?
Are you tired of being in need?
Are you tired of being the only
One which whom they lean?
Are you tired of being pulled in
To those tired stupid games?
Are you tired of their complaining?
Are you tired of all their ways?

You can rest in me
I will lend an ear
Set your burdens free
They will disappear

Are you tired of resentment?
Are you tired of their greed?
Are you tired of having no one
When you're the one in need?
Are you tired of holding back
Are you tired of giving up?
Are you tired of all the pain
Do you want it all to stop?

You can rest in me
I will lend an ear
Set your burdens free
They will disappear

Nicely written piece, regarding the the music. She's a great singer man. Good idea to have her sing it.

This is a very, very nice song.

You're a good singer too, brother.

Distinct voice
Nice song you two put together here. I especially like how your voices sound together starting at the 3:12 mark. The panning on the guitar sounds really good too - it fills up the space well.
Well sung!

thanks nick
it's tough attempting a 'duet' without really singing together, but she really pulled off singing along with the tracks I gave her. hopefully we'll do a few more in the future. thanks for checking this out.

very nice lyrics and Petra's voice is perfect ... then the duet sets in and soars. this is a great collab. it is hard to sync duets from a distance but you guys smashed that barrier. man ... your guitar work is just great. so... right then ... did i love this? indeed i did! Great Job

Mellow and anguished. Very powerful stuff. Can't wait to get home and check out Petra's site. This has a good Sea Change by Beck sound to it - which is a great thing. Great job! Give my compliments to Petra.

Thanks Vic I appreciate it. Production-wise there's a bit too much hissing for my liking so I'll need to revisit and denoise (and get a new acoustic pickup methinks!). Anyway, thanks for listening.

Simply gorgous!!
What a great voice Petra has and some lovely guitar work here and your voice is brilliant also - rserenson really great production- your voices in harmony fit together like a hand in a glove. Perfectly. I love it lots.
And yet another of yours for my ipod. I love your music.

What a voice Petra has!
Fits beautifully with the acoustic. And then there's the blend of vocals on the duet parts - wonderful .. works really well. Some unwanted hiss on the acoustic track and your vocal Ridd - maybe that's the Snowball (maybe a flourescent light in the room?)? Would love to hear this with the hiss filtered out - a very nice song - vocals and guitars are a dream.

WOW!!
Great to hear that you do some great acoustic pieces. This is a true gem... she has a nice vocal and when you enter with your vocal... just sends chills up the spine! This is top notch stuff my friend!

Thanks for sharing... the melody is sad some..

Take Care
