It's about how life changes when someone important departs our lives. It encompasses your feelings of loss, love and hope. It was written for my dad and is performed by my brother and I. Simon plays cello and I play acoustic guitar and record all the vocals. Seadna (our producer) sensitively adds percussive effects uplifting the song.


Travellin' so far from me
Gone so young without explanation
Does the place exist or is it a comforting lie?
It's not the same, it's not the same....without you

Now would be a good time for you to appear
Things have fallen apart, the puzzle is complicated
I miss your warmth, your hold and your guidance
It's not the same, it's not the same.....without you

I want you to meet the one who'll hold my heart
Don't you worry, it'll be safer than ever before
Can you see from there when the sky is blue and when the sun shines through?
It's not the same, it's not the same......without you
