Description
This is my first collab, a collab I did back early 2006.
I was seeking after free loops and found this cool place 23/11-2005.
First I post this as an instrumental and asked if someone could sing on it.
And as many here now it was the beginning of a true love story.
Okay! my lady's artist name at this time was "The Nightbird" and she was so kind to help me with it.
After when she say yes I want to give it a try, I listen on a few of hers songs and I loved her voice at one's,
so much so I wroth this lyrics as I had not done that when I first post it.

I remember hove hard it was to mix a song with a voice in there, but when I post it I got a comment from "Futzpucker" (Patrick) and felted very proud, a comment from him was something many of us then really appreciate at this time, (still dose if I get one)... Okay it is not my first song I post, but it is a song I never forget as it was a start to real LOVE and we did many more collabs. This song lives deep in my heart... I hope you enjoy as I do.

P.S the pic is the same we had at the first post.

I've never heard this before Kenta,
but I really like it. Man what a cool collab, and then to end up finding the love of your life singing on your first collab. How cool is that my friend. I'm gonna sit right down with a really fine whiskey and have a drink to celebrate you two and this song of yours.

Kudos and much happiness to you both.

Meant for each other from the start
It's a delightful love story, Kenta. I know you and Linda had to overcome a lot of obstacles to get where you are now and it's good to reflect on how it all started.

It's a really lovely song too, her voice blends so deliciously with your instrumentation.

As sloparts says, to have a MacJams collaboration turn out to be the love of your life is such a magical and inspiring story.

Best love to you and Linda.

What can I say more then GOD was with us he listen to our prays.
