The Slow Travel

DUBLIN-BARCELONA 10 years ago, on 1st June 2008, Damien Rice embarked on a ’10 Days To Barcelona’ project. The idea was to drive from Dublin to Barcelona in his old Mini, with some friends, and write a new song each day on the journey. The songs, recordings & film footage of the project have lived on the shelf for the past 10 years. It has only recently been dusted off and prepared for a slow release, over the coming months, for the 10th Anniversary of that slow travel. Here are two versions of the first song “100 Miles Across The Room”. An acoustic version and a more produced version. Both are rough mixes and unmastered. More songs coming later… Stay tuned!

The Slow Release #01

100 Miles Across The Room

100 Miles Across The Room – Acoustic

Lyrics:

If I could get out of my mind
If I could forget about me
If I could forget about time
I might begin to see you
Hear you, feel and understand you

If I could forget about life
If I could shut up about me
If I could not get out of my mind
Every once in a while
I might begin to see you
Hear you, feel and understand you
Instead of being hundred miles from you
When I’m sitting in the same room

If I could forget about trying to be special
Cause it has me ugly, bad skin, sore knees
Gathering disease, disease, disease
