BORN

BORN
Can she see?
Will she be?
Saintly lady by the water
Faintly fiery fisher’s daughter

And you see nothing is as it is
Nothing is as it ought to be
And you see it’s back to where we began
Back so far you’re out in front again…

It’s time.

Born – you were meant to be
Born – into the family
Born – we were meant to be
Born – into the family

Fun Facts:
* Born is in the key of E minor.
* It was first performed by Laughing Sun in 1985.
* There are many changes of tempo throughout, some subtle, some not.
* One of the changes that Jim introduced was replacing two of the B minors with G majors during the main ascending theme.
* The main ascending theme is ten bars long, four measures of 2.5 bars.
* The winter version has slightly mangled audio to start on the right hand side but it sorts itself out before long when the beats kick in.
* Pok plays Marsha, a pale gold 1985 Ibanez Roadstar II.
