Dear Roem, It was great to meet you at Dana's on Sunday. I have been listening to your album non-stop. I LOVE it. I even got my 12-yr-old son to teach me how to use iTunes on my iPhone (why did I wait so long, you ask?), so that I could download them to listen anytime. You talk about the story behind the Thief and No More Sunsets, but I am very intrigued by the story behind With Friends Like These. I find the lyrics very provocative. Also, I wrote down the lyrics by listening. Where do you have them on your website, so I can see if I got them right? Cheers! Christine
