There isn't much to the lyrics. I wrote most of them on the train to the studio — a session was booked in and it was the first time I'd ever recorded vocals for something. I can't remember everything that I wrote down, but it's pretty much just as you hear in the song:
I hear while I dream... don't let go. If you believe, then don't let go. improv bit
Some other fun facts: The studio was actually a dodgy converted garage. We recorded for about 40 minutes. Lots of random stuff. The parts that actually made it into the song were from different ends of the DAT tape.
I still have the tape here somewhere. I should see what else is on there.
“Yeah, yeah. White space helps the user. Complexity is sort of the enemy of the user. Most people can’t do too much at once, so, the white space lets it breathe. On the other hand information density is good for them too. So, they don’t have to click, click, click to see what they’re trying to find. So the art of an excellent design is coming up with the right balance.”
