about

Last week I wrote of the approaching return of my fiencée from her season of work abroad, and just as last week's song anticipated, she arrived on Friday, much to our mutual joy relief. I spent the week writing songs in advance of the holiday season and the travel and logistics that often make keeping up with Mount Everest difficult. Having already written of her return, I had intended to explore other subjects and territories, but sometimes an emotion and an event looms so large that I cannot write around it, so I embraced the wait and I kept meditating on it. To that end, here is yet another song about Rebecca's approaching return, despite the fact that I am releasing it days after the event. There is yet another one like it cued up for a week from today, and both of them were written and recorded last week. Some Monday early in the new year Mount Everest will catch up to real life, no longer lingering on that week's wait. There was simply nothing else I could imagine writing about.

This song plays with a slightly elaborate electronic arrangement. I pull off a few things with a synthesizer that I haven't really tried before. I hope you enjoy it.

lyrics

Candle in the window
Light the way
Light the way
What am I to do?
Sit and wait
Sit and wait
Crack the end of autumn
On the way
On the way
Hold on
Hold on
Hold on

Sound of heavy concrete
Gone away
Gone away
Midnight in the clearing
On the way
On the way
Hold on
Hold on
Hold on
