LOVE IS A MATTER OF DIFFERENCE

Tim Christensen

 

Love is a matter of difference

Between you and me

Love is a matter of distance

But you are too far away

 

Love is a matter of growing

And knowing true feelings

Love is a matter of showing

But you are too far away

 

When my heart is hoping

My mind keeps opening to find

I can’t let you stay

Though love is a matter of difference

You are too far away

 

Love is a matter of input

Outlook… deep inside

Love is to know you’re on my side

But you are too far away

 

When my heart is hoping

My mind keeps opening to find

I can’t let you stay

Though love is a matter of difference

You are too far away

If love is a matter of distance

You are too far away

Sam's notes...

My good friend Kim Loudrup introduced me to the unbelievable talent of Tim Christensen when I was visiting Copenhagen in 2009. This song struck me instantly as a gem, and Kim has insisted on my covering it ever since. So this one is dedicated to Kim and all the wonderful folks from Copenhagen.

 

Sandra Sangiao provided the killer backing vocals here at the patient insistence of Pedro Hermosilla (I believed mistakenly that our version should be sung without them). Thanks to classical guitarist Laura Young for coming in and delivering her first pop solo ever, and thanks to Joan Antoni Pich for his elegant backing part on cello. Last but not least, thanks to Tim Christensen for such a brilliant ballad.
