Temporary Thoughts was very hard for me to execute, singing wise. Every time I opened my mouth, I chocked. No voice came out, and when it did, it sounded like a whiny poodle. I wrote this song a long time ago – the movie I imagined in my head while writing was about an old man, and the last strings of thoughts that he manages to think just minutes before his death, which he’s very aware that is going to happen. Just a couple of months after I finished writing the song my grandfather died, and I couldn’t breath. Everything paused in mid air. He died in his sleep. I hope he was dreaming of something nice.
I locked the song in a drawer, unable to even look at it. It was impossible for me to face it.
A couple of years later, I thought I should give it a look and dedicate the song to my grandfather. A few months later, my best friend died from cancer. I couldn’t breath again, and I decided this song is cursed, and should never see the light of day.
As I actually don’t believe in curses, about a year later I’ve decided to try and record it again. But every time I tried singing I started crying, I couldn’t help it. It took me TWO YEARS to record my voice for this song. But it’s finally out. Temporary Thoughts is dedicated to my two truly pure beloveds: Abraham Harari and Danielle Yasour.
