My friend Becca died in November 2014 in a terrible accident. Her mom asked me to play guitar at the funeral while people were filing in. I say down and played this (or thereabout) for about a half hour. It was a piece I'd somewhat toyed with previously and it didn't have a home. I knew I wanted to use it and give it form, but I didn't know where it fit. It turned out it was just waiting for Becca.
My life wasn't the same after Becca died. I'm not sure it could have been. Some losses just take it out of you. I don't have a lot else to say about it. Listening to it makes me sad, but I'm glad that the song itself sounds kind of happy. She deserves happy. I hope she's got it now.
Released in July 2015 at the request of Becca's family members who wanted a copy.
