about

Written a month after my mother died. This tune was inspired by my brother's eulogy. My mother touched many people with her life and made the world a better place. Simple and understated (like my Mother) this song is acoustic folk-pop in the James Taylor tradition, peppered with the melodica.

lyrics

We all leave our mark
Some light the earth
Others touch our hearts with their fingerprints

Some love to explore
Others write their stories
Some taste new wine
Others walk in glory

Some rise above
Many sink in pain
Others choose a different road or remain the same

Light through a window
There you'll see
Clear as the day, and hard to remove…Fingerprints

We all leave our mark
Sometimes understated
Slightest impressions with our fingerprints
With our fingerprints
You touched me with your fingerprints
