A Song For Jade

by Steve Kilbey




believe me there is nothing worse than when your children get sick
when i was in sweden i put some pictures on the net of my daughters head
zipperhead i called her
and there is that big ugly zippered up scar on the back of her neck
but that scar filled me with dread and anxiety
around this time marianne in newcastle england was writing to me
her granddaughter jade has had a lot of operations
a lot of painful invasive awful operations and shes only fifteen
at an age when most kids are getting on with being teenagers
jade has been bravely and stoically coping with one thing after another
an operation to correct the last operation etc
shes undergone a lot for a teenaged girl !
anyway in newcastle theyre having a bit of a fundraiser
because these operations cost a fucking fortune
unable to attend that fundraiser
and wanting to do something
i have written a song for jade
and the money from all downloads will go straight to her family
now the song itself was problematical
i wanted to write something magnificent to exemplify jades struggle
this ideal nearly gave me writers block where ive never had it before
the immensity of my task seemed to stop me in my tracks
eventually i settled for a beatley/ glam rocky happy get better kinda song
i think you’ll like it
and believe me the money will be going to a very good cause
its a win/win situation
and jade will be in a lot of peoples hearts and prayers
go ahead now please
even if this is the only download you buy from me ever
and get a song for jade plus instrumental jade mix
its only $ 5 for 12 minutes plus worth of music
thank you
