Thanks Beth! That's perfect. Steph plays this song too. it's a slow, deep song but surprisingly hard to master. It took her a while to nail it, but it's worth it in my humble opinion. It's a beautiful piece.

Thanks again.

Recommend this videoclip as well as the lyrics (it's a Belgian band, BTW):

The First try

So much for some good advice
We drop out on the first try
We flee before we even fight

"It's just a phase" is just a phrase
used back in my old days
to tell me to sit back and wait

But we will get to roll again
We will do what it takes
All that needs a long debate
I don't need to know

Here's to another try
To move on to a different start
Ready for the rise
Ready for the second part
Hardly playing safe
We're drifting on a higher wave
To another try
If a challenge comes to mind
I will give a sign

So much for a bit of truth
The proof that might offend you
Conclusions we'll be reaching soon

It's easier to say than do
To stop you than to guide you
‘Cause who knows what we're heading to

But we will get to roll again
We will do what it takes
All that needs a long debate
I don't need to know

Here's to another try
To move on to a different start
Ready for the rise
Ready for the second part
Hardly playing safe
We're drifting on a higher wave
To another try
If a challenge comes to mind
I will give a sign

We will get to roll again
All that's hardly worth the wait
says it's time to go
For another try

I owe a lot to you, my dear, you are a friend
You care enough to listen and to understand
There are so many means to many different ends
I leave it up to you

A post-it note displays what I did not forget
A long apology but I am not upset
A wake up call goes off but I'm not sleeping yet
And I cannot reset

At times I wish I were dead
Busy people dancing all over my head

I keep an eye on every possible escape while moving at my pace
Whatever's coming up, I can't afford a stop
There's no excuse if I am late
I'm in for a surprise but there are limits to my status as a fool
Even giant words with exclamation marks can't tell me what I have to do

I owe a lot to you, my dear, you changed the plot
You tickle tear ducts with the innocence you've got
Whatever is at stake you play and one mistake 
It cannot ruin your day

At times I wish I were dead
Busy people dancing all over my head

I owe a lot to you, my dear, you are a friend
You care enough to listen and to understand
There are so many means to many different ends

The older we all get, the more we feed our fears
But sweetly haunting thoughts can form a new idea
There was a time to try but now it is for real

I owe a lot to you, my dear, you lift me up
and they can say we're losing touch, I know we're not
If the friendship ends you know 
I won't pretend you never were a friend
