Written for my demented great grandmother, who once said: ''I've heard people talk 'bout early birds, but I guess you're a late nightingale''


I've heard people talk 'bout early birds
But I guess you're a late nightingale
I know I don't remember everything
I don't have questions anymore

You know I appreciate that you're here
I do cherish every visit
And you know whenever you are here
I can feel my uprising spirit

I know that I am not the same anymore
But for me you're the one that has changed

I play the bass and piano among other things, next to that I sing and write music. I really enjoy making music, but I can’t do it on my own, that’s why I work together with friends and family. ... more
