Music and Lyrics by Fred Karlin

This song was written for a made-for-television movie of the same name by Fred Karlin, who wrote the music to 1970’s “For All We Know,” of which it is reminiscent.  Recorded in 1978, the same year as the film, Karen’s vocal is a “work lead”, sung so bassist and drummer could react to the melody and not just read a rhythm chart.  The recording was not completed until 1999, when I added the orchestration and backing vocals.
