Liner Notes: 

I read the lyrics by @SueAwesome and instantly heard Leonard Cohen speaking it. A first idea. I did one keyboard track with notes in the key of C (all the white keys) primarily sequenced from C, F, and G chords attempted to emulate soft raindrops. Then I copied and pasted that track to create multiple tracks with different effects. . The drums are four different Garageband loops. Vocal added on top, about halfway through I realized I needed to shorten the length so I cut up and moved around some pieces of the track to keep the overall song at a manageable length.

Lyrics:

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

sounds like a leonard cohen mantra from his days as a monk.

Love the laid back feel to this track; nice approach to the vocals.

Nice build with the different drum loops. There is a little Indian/eastern feel in some of the drum loops, the fast hi-hat notes and toms. I like the idea that it is the light inside that is beautiful, not our exterior. Good vocals too.
