about

Baba is an electric guitar blues in 7/8 (2+2+3) time-signature. A song that is conversation with my late father Ioannis Mastoridis. With a grammatical error: “I haven’t forgave you” - which was stopping me to release the song all these years. But a quick Google search revealed that quite a few people have used this erroneous phrase, so it received a green light for release. Blues in everything else, the 7/8 time-signature gives it a bit of a strange twist, an unusual rhythmic groove. Written and recorded 2007.

lyrics

1.
In the darkest nights I see you, in my dreams, you wake, you rise
Is it that because, you think, that I haven't forgave you
Daddy, sleep well, rest well
2.
I will pray to God about you, I will pray about me too
Rest in peace, Baba, Baba, rest in peace and forgive me
All I said for you
*
Please forgive me, you are always in my heart
Baba, please forgive me, I am just like you, Baba
3.
In the days when I am in sorrow, In the nights when I am weak
I fell deep 'n myself, I long, long to talk to you daddy
Pray for me Baba
4.
I am fine and doing good, daddy, wish you'd come and see my place
I miss you sometimes, But then, I will come to you one day
We’ll meet in Heaven again
*
Sorry daddy, how could I say wrong for you,
Baba, let’s forget all, Pray to God for me Baba
