Where is home for you
Is it a place to lay your head
What is a home to you
Is it a place where you are fed

Do you earn it
Or Is it a gift that’s handed down
Do you find it
Like panning for gold, will it be found

Where is home for you
Is it the love within these walls
What is home to you
Is it the long distance phone calls

Do you feel it
Or is it a thing that we can make
Can you heal it
Anything good is bound to break

Home… There’s no other place you’d rather go
Home… When you get there you will know

Where is home for you
Is it here are very far
What is home to you
Is it the laughter from the yard

Can you save it
In photographs on the wall
Would you change it
Nothing stays the same after all

Home… There’s no other place you’d rather be
Home… and no other face you’d rather see
Home… There’s no other place you’d rather go
Home… When you get there you will know

Somewhere in Time

Cello: Michelle Beauchesne. Guitar: Sean McCue. Written by John Barry, from the Somewhere in Time – Soundtrack.

Last night I learned, interpreted and spontaneously recorded this little instrumental called “Somewhere in Time” for a special occasion I was asked to play this weekend. This is a live duet with Michelle Beauchesne playing her cello, while I’m outlining the chords on my acoustic guitar. I like the atmosphere of the live stereo recording, so thought I would share.

For the audio geeks (like me): I placed an Avantone CK-40 Stereo Multi-Pattern FET Microphone a few feet away in my studio with both capsules set to cardioid in X/Y with the low-cut ON, and ran the signal through a Grace 801 preamp and into Logic Pro.
