ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This is my Christmas song for 2012. I wrote this when my son was born. Whatever your spiritual beliefs, becoming a father or mother is in the realm of the holy. The holy hurt of living, I call it. At first, time slows down, minutes become hours and the disruption of sleep really throws you out of balance, permanently I think. It's good to be off balance, you feel more, you're more alive, for better and for worse.
The title phrase comes from Luke 24:32. I had mistakenly remembered it as the 3 Kings bearing gifts on their way to Bethlehem to greet the newborn child, but in fact it was the 2 men on the road to Emmaus, unknowingly walking and talking with Jesus after his resurrection. I'll forgive my error in the name of poetic license.
Whatever your religious beliefs, or lack thereof, there is poetry in the Bible. So much of the literary realm makes reference to it. Stories told, then written down. Our lives are stories, some written down, some just lived as they pass in their evanescence. The love that entered me upon becoming a father is there forever. I will never be free now, nor do I want to be.
Regards this recording, what kind of music is this? So unlike the Jimi Hendrix and R'n'B that I lived for, growing up. Well, the music comes to me and I follow where it leads. Nichelle Monroe sings the beautiful harmonies. Lee Curreri orchestrated my guitar and vocals in his studio in Venice, California. Matt Forger from my "Buddy Holly" album, mixed the song out in the San Fernando Valley.

Merry Christmas

Didn't Our Hearts

A child is born to us
A son is given
Oh, how we adore him
It's a miracle, a mystery
All our desire, this is where it leads
There was no denying you
There was no denying me

But didn't our hearts burn within us
Didn't our hearts burn within us

There's never time enough
And even if there was
Always I want a little bit more
One more hour, one more day
It was a beautiful moment
Time stood still for us
Then time sped up
And left us behind

But didn't our hearts burn within us
Didn't our hearts burn within us

It was a beautiful moment
Time stood still for us
Then time sped up
And left us behind

Didn't our hearts burn within us
Didn't our hearts burn so within us
Didn't our hearts burn within us
Didn't our hearts burn within us
