Through the window...

OK...this is very very VERY rough.  But you did ask for it so you've only got yourselves to blame.  Cordelia and I out in the (very UNsoundproof) studio, in front of the computer with its very basic microphone, bumbling our way through Garage Band recording software (which came free with the computer).  There's a stuff-up in the middle (dammit, that's what happens when you get cocky and throw a surprise 3rd chord into a 2 chord song!), and the wind picks up and you can hear branches scratching the tin roof, but I think I managed to avoid any planes going over at least!

So...."Through the Window"...the first song I've ever written with a guitar.  Words are here if you want to read.
(now lets see if this works...........fingers crossed as she clicks on 'publish post')

WOW Christina! That is amazingly beautiful! Quite magical. You are indeed multi - talented! I wish I had some musical ability. I sometimes wonder if that is why I connect so well with crows - I have a voice like one :(
Which reminds me - you commented on my blog about the lovely sound of the magpie's song. Our magpies shriek and chatter, but no lovely liquid bubbling songs!

Wow, Christina, that is beautiful, i love it!! What an accomplishment to write & play & sing! i can do none of them & am in awe of folks who can. It must be a wonderful feeling to put yourself into that creative place and to be able to express yourself so completely. You really have "got it" as Valerianna says, i want to hear more. x x x

That's a beautiful bewitching song... I loved the lyrics when you first posted them and you have blended them beautifully with your music! It reminds me a little of Sandy Denny - I vaguely remember a haunting song of hers about a knight in a wood... can't remember the title....
Also I think the sounds of the wind add to the atmosphere - that may be what makes me think of the song about the knight...
Keep writing, playing and singing - you do all of it very well...

I dont know, I kinda like the chord change slip in the middle, it made me giggle and brings me back to reality that Im listening to you sitting in your house recording.
your voice is very transporting though, I am soooo relaxed by your voice, its like you dont need any other instruments because your voice and your guitar and so enveloping.
yay for 2 chord songs, music is so complicated these days
