Hi Gerd,

 This is a wonderful message and song. The vocalist is outstanding and I hope you can use her again.

I must say this surprises me some since I am accustomed to hearing your other music which is always so well crafted. You are equally good at both.

Happy Holidays and Christmas to you!

Thank you, Tim, I am glad that it speaks to you, since it is not really a main-stream pop song. I recorded it 20 years ago and had almost totally forgotten it .. ;-)

Very nice and inspiring song and well set! Maybe the voice could profit from a bit more ambient space. It's so very close and direct now in comparison with the accompaniment. But that's merely a matter of recording technique and not a musical issue. However, it would make the whole piece a bit more realistic (this is not a natural way of listening to vocal/instrumental music). It is as if the singer is situated in a total different room.

Great song and very well sung!

For my recent birthday my children made me a beautiful present by performing the song of this thread in an altogether different – folk – style (we all are huge Bruce Springsteen fans ;-) ) with guitar and harmonica to which later on I added a Cello vioce. This is much simpler than the original version but more emotional for me ... :-)

A very good song, both words and music and certainly as good as many commercially successful popular songs nowadays.

I thought though that the line "you are in my sight" was a little stilted.  It might have been better to use a phrase that was as smoothly idiomatic as the rest of the lyrics.

Can hardly say much. A pleasant song in a modern vein. Carefully balanced scoring and the voice about just right for it.

Very nice.

(Glad it came up the list again. I must have missed it when you first posted it.)
