NEW SINGLE

You're my Friend!

You're my Friend

You're my Friend

A song inspired by two separate tragic events; first the passing away of Silvana's and Salvatore's nephew Armando. Severely handicapped since birth, Armando underwent many operations in his short life, the last of which proved fatal leading to his death on the tender age of 17. 

This lead to Salvatore writing the lyrics to 'You're my Friend'. 
Then, almost two months later newest band member, percussionist Willem Mustamu suffered a heart-attack leading to a coma and his eventual passing. This prompted Salvatore to return to the song and put the words to music. 

Salvatore: 'I didn't set out to write a song in the style of the Dire Straits, but that is how it turned out. I had always intended for the lyrics to be delivered rather monotonously, in a low voice and the backing track I made just drifted towards this kind of Dire Straits sound. It was then that I decided to go all the way and try my hand at a Mark Knopfler style guitar solo. It just all seemed to fit the mood and feel of the song so I went with it.'



Lyrics:

You're my Friend

Summer is waiting, but you won't see the sun
you had to leave us, and everything feels wrong
Now it's just memories, and emptiness inside
Nothing but memories, and no place left to hide

I'm not the first one, to ever lose a friend
No, I'm not the only one, the only one who doesn't understand
if there's a reason, if there's a rhyme
All that i know is, that you were a friend of mine

You're my friend and I'll miss you now you're gone
You're my friend, all I can do now is go on

I really hope that some day we will meet again
and that you'll remember that I was your friend
And if there's a heaven, I know that's where you'll be
Up there in heaven, waiting just for me

And we'll sit together, looking back on life
sharing our memories, someday when I'll die
It's dream that keeps me going every day
It's dream that no one can ever take away

You're my friend and I'll miss you now you're gone
You're my friend, all I can do now is go on

You're my friend and I'm gonna miss you now you're gone
You're my friend, all I can do now is go on

You're my friend and I'm gonna miss you now you're gone
You're my friend, all I can do now is go on

You're still my friend
