It's funny how sometimes it takes all but a few minutes to write a song, while the development of another song can really stretch out. This was one of those stretches - "Risky" was a song that was written "in chunks" - the basic instrumental bit was written in Kyiv, Ukraine before a big move to western Ukraine and then to Canada, where the rest was written & recorded before finally being dragged back to Ukraine, where it was properly mixed and mastered. The time span from start to finish: 5 years. All that moving around was us, by the way, not just the tracks bouncing around in cyber space. Thus is the history of this track. I'm posting the lyrics too if anyone wants to have a go at them or "sing along" …. yeah, right… any feedback is welcome. Peace.

A billion heads hung low
All in awe and all in sorrow
You marked the life we know
Hero among we mere mortals

On and on and on and on
You came, you died, and you’re in a better place now
And they tend to call it kingdom come

And we’re slowly falling
As you rise faster than the starts tonight
Will be alright
And now you’re moving
Faster than the speed of light

And we’re slowly falling
As you rise faster than the starts tonight
Will be alright
And now you’re free of space
And human time
Stars tonight will be your guide
To meet your maker
Beyond the speed of light

This sounds extremely close to Heaven or Las Vegas-era Cocteau Twins, which is a very good thing in my book!

It's lovely, and involving, and well-crafted. This is one of my favourite things I've heard on here recently.
