A beautiful song or morning lullaby which I have known since childhood, written by one of my family's favourite singer songwriters, Bill Caddick.

The string quartet which creeps in towards the end of the song, was arranged by Icelandic composer and musician Borgar Magnason and recorded at Greenhouse Studios, Reykjavik, home of the label The Bedroom Community. It was a magical experience to be there for the recording.
