Demo: 

Harbor for your heart-Marthie Nel Hauptfleisch-Woman On Fire

Collaborators: 

Liner Notes: 

old song revisited. I think this was one of my first 5090's songs I wrote and one of the first with Liz.
Tony Drake is playing the piano this time

Liz says: this is beautiful, Marthie! The music is is gorgeous and you have changed it significantly since the first rendition years ago as that version was not a piano ballad - I really love your vocals and melody - your phrasing and tenderness are beautiful! Thanks for coming back to it - what a lovely surprise. And thanks to Tony! Although I also think your own piano playing is awesome.

Lyrics: 

1. Harbor for your heart

Lyrics Kahlo

V1

the lighthouse lamp glimmers

reflecting on gentle waves

as the sun disappears

from the sky

the crescent moon rises

celebrating the ending day

as the water sings a soft

lullaby

C

let me be the soothing

music for your sweet dreams

let me be the tender

embrace for calming peace

let me be the joyful

wishes for tomorrow's start

and let me be the loving

harbor for your heart

V2

the night air grows cooler

quieting the summer's heat

as stars shine up high

all night long

the water becomes almost still

welcoming the serenity

as the birds sing their

good night song

C

let me be the soothing

music for your sweet dreams

let me be the tender

embrace for calm and peace

let me be the joyful

wishes for tomorrow's start

let me be the loving

harbor for your heart

BRIDGE

come to me let me hold you

as I pray God keeps you safe

know I will stay right beside you

until the dawn of the new day

C

let me be the soothing

music for your sweet dreams

let me be the tender

embrace for calm and peace

let me be the joyful

wishes for tomorrow's start

let me be the loving

harbor for your heart

OUTRO

oh let me be the loving...

loving harbor of your heart

I'm figuring out what I particularly like about your songs, Marthie--it's the piano accompaniment. I've got to come up with something along these lines.

You have a "guest piano player" on this one? He's really good. Great, great song, Liz. I'll give you most of the praise for this one because I've been spoiling Marthie for the last couple of months. Gorgeous!!
