lyrics

ben is one of the best songwriters i have ever heard. this, in my opinion, is one of his finest songs to date (2011). ben and i have been playing together in a number of different bands for a number of years. he is the musician that i'd say i know the best (musically speaking, that is) - we have a nice effortless synergy and harmony built up by playing together so often.
when we did the gig at the sans-souci social club, "herons!", ben's band, opened the evening. for the last song, the rest of the italian weather ladies joined in. i'm very pleased that this song sounded so good and that he let me put it on the album... i recommend buying the vinyl for a bunch of reasons: among them is this fine version of herons!' song orphans, which is not included on the cd version!
