Even though the songs of the album Lost Track Of Time have their own character, they were written in a specific stage of my life. For me the main message in this album is the tension between the tough side of life as an adult and the desire to return to the simple and loving world of a child. As a child I was often mused; I would stand in front of the railtrack and think of the larger world out there and I lost track of time. Thinking back, I realize that the rail track marked the boundary between maturity and childhood.
Lost Track of Time: About someone you think you will see tomorrow but you’ll never see again. Belly on fire: Explosion of joy starts with one guitar, and ends with 56 tracks. Recorded and arranged with Rob Hendriks. Sometimes I Lie: Sometimes it’s better to say nothing at all. 232 years: After and adventurous journey with women, I had enough of simple love and champagne. This Man; written for the wedding of Sander van Herk What a man! Deep blue love: written for a foundation that worries and cares about the situation our oceans are in. Just in Case: Through the gaps of the past. Stones girl: Recorded while it was being composed by Rob Hendriks played the chords and I sung the melody, no further changes were made. Lyrics written for my daughter by Tamsin Guy. Goodbye Fortuna: We will continue. Back Off: Suzy Dexter starring Sander van Herk.
