City of Her

Helped a friend out recording some of his spoken word pieces, and at the end of the recording offered to play bass along with a particular piece.
A lot of fun, and a LOT of listening in this one on my end, to catch his natural rhythm and try and support it musically without stepping on his toes. This is the 2nd attempt. Few really cool moments where the rhythm and chords line up nicely.
Bass - VoxAC15 w/ delay and tremolo. >> Rode M1 Mic
Vocals through the Nude C12

------------------------------

You were there when I got my first job
You held my hand when I began to believe in my dreams
I remember when I was too scared to leap across the uncertain
And you pushed me in, as if you could see through all the darkness.

You'd rush me into the thunderstorms filled with mighty rain
Knowing that we'd get hit by the same amount of rain as if we stood still.
I remember going through such astounding moments -
where you'd smile as if it was nothing -
but I knew then what I know now, that you were at your strongest.

Every now and then when something happens -
I always feel a piece of you inside of me -
and I can't deny that heritage you left, that mark you made
The aura that oozes out and hypnotizes people while you do your magic.

I've started to think about you more and more often now -
As it's been a while since you've been around.
See
Every now and then people look at me different -
As if they can see that you haven't touched me -
As if I am no longer bearing marks from your touch -
As if the ooze of your strain is not stained within me -
As if I was ever anything without you.
