A friend of mine was going through a tough time. From that I was inspired to write this song a few years ago. I managed to record it yesterday before my roommates got back home (but unfortunately after my neighbor let his dog out).

I'm singing and playing a mountain dulcimer. Recorded with my Canon T3i DSLR.

I'm not quite singing the lyrics correctly. Here are the correct lyrics:

It's been a long day full of life from rising to setting sun.
You set your face to accomplish much and many things were done.
So now rest your sleep head, close your heavy eyes.
Dream of far away lands, and I'll be here in the morning.

You tried your best and gave a good fight but you could not win.
Lift up your heart and lift up your mind, I'll help you try again.
But now rest your sleepy head, close your heavy eyes.
Dream of far away lands, and I'll be here in the morning.

When troubles arise and tears crowd your eyes so that you cannot see,
I'll come and lead you by the hand, you have a friend in me.

[instrumental]

So now rest your sleep head, close your heavy eyes.
Dream of far away lands, and I'll be here in the morning.
So now rest your sleep head, close your heavy eyes.
Dream of far away lands, and I'll be here in the morning.
I'll be here in the morning.

I saw you commented on the flatness of your voice. I'm not sure if you have any idea how good this really is. When I'm listening to this, I'm not thinking about the technical aspects of the music. Your singing, your playing, the lyrics... everything speaks simply from a different dimension that directly hits the heart. This is so beautiful it brought tears to my eyes and shivers down my spine.

Krichotomy responds:

Thanks. I have a very critical mind and like to address all aspects. I was outlining there some of the things that separate my work from something with a professional polish. For the record, I'm terribly fond of this recording. :)

You should make this more often. It really sounds nice. And i think that the instrumentation fits perfectly :3

Krichotomy responds:

Thanks! Maybe I'll work up the guts to start practicing music while my roommates are home.
