Willow... unplugged

In chapter 10 ("Adrenaline Rush") I quoted a song by Joan
Armatrading, "Willow", one of my all time favourite tunes.
The only thing that bothers me about this song:
I didn't write it - LOL! Anyway..

I promised my friend Uhyesplease
to sing it for her as a Christmas present.
In order to come as close as possible to the idea of being with
her, like maybe sitting at her kitchen table with my guitar...
I sung it right into the computer's built-in mic, totes unplugged.

Well, I guess I could need a little more practice with the guitar.
But she liked it anyway, and allowed me to share it here.

This is how I quoted it in Your True Colors:

Thunder – don't go under the sheets
Lightning – under a tree
In the rain and snow, I'll be your fireside
Come running to me when things get out of hand
Running to me when it's more than you can stand
I said I'm strong, straight, willing
To be a shelter in a storm
Your willow, when the sun is out

Joan Armatrading

To Uhyesplease: Thanks for beta'ing some sense into my
silly little fanfic, and for your friendship which means so
much more to me than I can tell. Heart you!!

(In case anyone's interested in what some of my own music sounds like if it is recorded in a studio - here's an example. There's a few more at my Betti.Music.Twilight blog, if you check the "Listen to some Music (MP3)"-tag in the right sidebar...

I think 'liked' it was the understatement of the century - I kinda bawled my brains out in front of my whole family. But it's ok - it's not completely abnormal for me to get emotional like that.

I love you too - more than words can express and the music and lyrics were just perfect. :)

Lots of love!!!!
