You can just feel the pain of not being able to talk to someone you care about.

«This song started off as just a little melody on the harp. I hadn’t written a song for over a decade (I was pursuing a career as a classical harpist) and this was the melody that brought me back to songwriting…and I’ve written many songs since!»

– Stephanie Babirak, NYC-Based Singer-Songwriter/Harpist
