My best friend filmed me while I was showing her the chords for a new song that I was in the process of writing in July 2009.
I completed the lyrics later and the song is called "A rose, a stone, my heart".
The lyrics are all about the original meaning of the word "respect" which means – and this is a bit freely translated – to look at yourself again/to look at another person again so that you can see who you really are/who they really are.
Looking at yourself or others again is one of the most challenging things in the world, isn't it?! I always feel very vulnerable when I notice that I need to challenge my assumptions. But it kind of always pays off.
Here is the final version of this song and you can download it for free:
