Leonard's voice and these words and music have been playing in my mind and heart all day long. Just listened again. Incredible.

Yeah, me too. How sure are we that it is a violin? Maybe a viola?

Hi again!
I'm pasting the whole translation of the song as requested by some Spanish members of the forum.

SHOW ME THE PLACE
Show me the place where you want your slave to go / Muéstrame el lugar al que deseas que se dirija tu esclavo
Show me the place I’ve forgotten I don’t know / muéstrame el lugar que he olvidado, que no conozco
Show me the place for my head is bending low /muéstrame el lugar, ya que mi cabeza está haciendote una reverencia
Show me the place where you want your slave to go / Muéstrame el lugar al que deseas que se dirija tu esclavo
Show me the place help me roll away the stone / muéstrame el lugar, ayúdame a mover la piedra
Show me the place I can’t move this thing alone / muéstrame el lugar, no puedo moverla yo solo.
Show me the place where the Word became a man /muéstrame el lugar donde el Verbo se hizo carne
Show me the place where the suffering began / muéstrame el lugar en el que comenzó el sufriniento
-------------------- ------------------------------
The troubles came I saved what I could save / Llegaron los problemas y salvé lo que pude salvar:
A thread of light a particle a wave /un hilo de luz, una partícula, una onda
But there were chains so I hastened to behave / pero había cadenas, así que me apresuré a comportarme
There were chains so I loved you like a slave /había cadenas así que te amé como un esclavo
----------------------- --------------------------------
Show me the place where you want your slave to go /Muéstrame el lugar al que deseas que se dirija tu esclavo
Show me the place I’ve forgotten I don’t know /muéstrame el lugar que he olvidado, que no conozco

Show me the place where you want your slave to go /Muéstrame el lugar al que deseas que se dirija tu esclavo

Mr. JB Newman is a fast working Guy.
He has the first Coverversion up on Y-Tube ( without Violin/Viola/Cello... ;-) )

Well Jarkko said it was a violin played by Bela Santelli. Maybe they've tweaked it somehow in production? It does sound low...

It possibly could have viola strings instead of the regular violin ones - that could bring it down up to 5 tones - though it's not a normal practice to do - may as well use a viola :)

IMHO, the solo in the middle could be played by a violin (I've just tried), but as far as I can tell there are notes at the beginning of the song which are too low for a violin. :D

I can't say if Bela Santelli is playing a violin or viola, but he is anyway credited as the violin player on this and two more songs (Going Home & Come Healing)

Any word Jarkko on whether the sound problems on the track (the unnatural jumps in instrument volume when LC's vocal comes in and out, particularly at the song's conclusion) will be sorted out by the time of it's official release? Could it be confined to the mp3 version? It definitely interferes with the track's enjoyment and needs addressing

I thought the press release said the song would be streaming from the official website.
