Autumn

On august 30 2009, my wife Karin and I celebrated being 24 years together...
As a present for her I wrote this song and sang it for her.

At the time I was working on this song, my dear myspace friend and music collaborator (Dreams Are Buried Here, Chislehurst Rose, ...) Artie Q visited and stayed with us. 
He was so kind to provide this song with his much more delicate vocals than mine, for which I am very thankful.
RT, thank you very much for being here and being such a friend.

I hope you all enjoy the song...
Thank you K., for everything.

In the autumn of our lives
Will you dance with me
To that lovely song
From our first movie?

In the autumn of our lives
Will we still have dreams
and laugh and cry
Reliving old memories?

In the autumn of our lives
Will you still look at me
With a young girl’s eyes
And say my name?

In the autumn of our lives
Will the smile in a grandchild’s eyes
Tell us that at least
We did some things right?

I might even need you more
Than I could imagine now
My Love
And hope you’ll stay with me
Be with me
Live a life with me...

In the winter of our lives
When every leaf has fallen down
And the trees seem sad
One of us has left...

In the winter of our lives
Will the presence of our love
Fill the emptiness
Through the barriers of time?


I might even need you more
Than you could imagine now
My Love
Hope you’ll stay with me
Be with me
Live your life with me
Through the winter of our lives


for Karin, the love of my life
