    Without knowing it, Glen Campbell and Piet de Pessemier have crossed paths more than once. “He was always a part of my life, even though I didn’t know it; as a musician or as a red thread through my own music. His story brought me to the concept for this album.” Important moments in our lives are often associated with songs or sounds. That's why I chose 'Rhinestone Cowboy' as a bonus track. I hope you like our version.

Well, I wait here outside by the doorstep to see the new morning I‘ve decided to leave my old house ‘cause it’s dark, chill and cold With my bags filled with memories of the good days I won’t look back, no I won’t I’ve sold the old van The one where we slept on the back seat After I found the note the note you wrote making my heart bleed I know the scars will stay but the wounds will hopefully heal Looking back in the mirror I hope to find me Oh can’t you see my love, I need you Oh can’t you see my love, I do For your mind for your soul for your heart made of gold I would trade it all away all the blood in my veins all my trivial complaints I would hold on Cause I cry, cry, cry, my good years away now knowing I’ll just wake up alone Oh can’t you see my love, I need you Oh can’t you see my love, I do Oh can’t you see my love, I need you Oh can’t you see my love, I do

It’s hard to harmonize the man once strong and wise with the one with the far-away look in his eyes All he was fighting for floats away from the shore now they’ve taken his sunshine away Look at him now, right on the edge reaching for the rope he’s trying to catch In the land of the golden trees the angels sing their harmonies Like Siren songs they keep lingering on There is always something to say about how far is far-away when they take your sunshine away Hold on, don’t fall down the deep looks Like a rainbow now Now someone’s taken your sunshine away You always gave me more than I ever asked you for so please, try and hold my hand Look at him now, right on the edge reaching for the rope he’s trying to catch In the land of the golden trees the angels sing their harmonies Like Siren songs they keep lingering on There is always something to say about how far is far-away when they take your sunshine away

I had a dream, I remember well I stood by the oak by the wishing well With some pennies in my little hand I got them all from my old man Lalalala Now she is all alone here Throw them all in there, one by one Stargaze and set phasers to stun All you see is not what it seems he said ‘Don’t ignore your dreams’ Lalalala Now she is all alone here I’m older now, almost 42 I ‘ve lost some dreams that never came true I put a coin in every wishing machine still chasing after my dreams Lalalala Now she is all alone here I wish I had seen how lonely you were how you barely breathed Now it’s gone Oh it’s gone

I'll Be Me 03:44
We walk down to Campbell Street, most every night There are still some houses left with their lights on Unrecognizable in the shimmering moonlight although they were built when I was young Oh, it’s so hard for you to see, that the ghost who walks beside you is me Oh, it’s so hard for you to see, but I tell you my love... I’ll be me Neon-lit billboards humming softly against the walls They sing their songs with the voice of a wounded soul We still hear them while we’re standing at the shore where flowers blossom best among stones Oh, it’s so hard for you to see, that the ghost who walks beside you is me. Oh, it’s so hard for you to see, but I tell you my love... I’ll be me

Walk with Me 03:15
Walk with me to where the city is no more than a glow in the dark Walk with me Dance with me to the music they play then we both forget the day Dance with me I wish that I could see it all again, through the eyes of a family man. I wish that I could see my sons grow old. There’s nothing more that I can do for you Even as I try to remember you I know that our love will fade away Oh, you and me We were leather and lace candles on a birthday cake You and me Walk with me to where the city is no more than a glow in the dark Walk with me I wish that I could see it all again through the eyes of a family man I wish that I could see my sons grow old There is nothing more that I can do for you even as I try to remember you I know that our love will fade away Walk with me

Stronger 05:53
I've trained my face to let it smile when you pass and if you ask me if I'm all right both my eyes won't give a damn. I've trained my hands so they won't shake if I touch your face. And later I began to train my feet to train my feet, so they won't run Through the mire, through the mud, and through the rain And later on with the knowledge I've gained with the body I've trained I can stay when you come around This time I won't run This time I won't leave you behind I will clean up all the mess like I did before, the mess in my mind
7.
Numbers 03:50
Sort my belongings by number Check them thoroughly one by one Some of them you won’t remember Drop ‘m in a garbage can Some things are just for you only Leave those in box number one Like all the letters I once wrote you Like all the love songs I sang Save some for the children ‘cause they have their memories too Simple things like some of the pictures we made you can put those in box number two Sort my belongings by number Check them thoroughly one by one Some of them you won’t remember Drop ‘m in a garbage can A lot of my possessions would stop you from being free Don’t lose any sleep about it when you trash ‘m in number three Sort my belongings by number Check them thoroughly one by one Some of them you won’t remember Drop ‘m in a garbage can
8.
One by one the highway lights are fading but you are always there to help me see I’ll have to slow down, but I keep going on with you riding shotgun next to me Unknown faces wrote me some letters but your features still speak to me With your feet upon the dash and your hand upon my knee On a clear day I can feel the relief On a clear day I realize that you’re quite a sight to see And while we are driving up the mountain static emerges from the radio Your silhouette in the mirror and your perfume brings me home but a fog builds up ‘round me On a clear day I can feel the relief On a clear day I realize that you’re quite a sight to see
9.
Oh don’t go There is hope there are waves to be found Some are lost somewhere high in the sky Oh you know there should be more than we’ve always known so reach out your antennas as far as they can go Hello, hello it’s me is that you on that secret frequency Let’s call it Radio Nowhere Radio Nowhere There are mountains less high than the one I had to climb but it was worth every step I took Reach out your hand to me then we can both try and fly away With a white seagull on our backs for faith Hello, hello it’s me Is that you on that secret frequency Let’s call it Radio Nowhere Radio Nowhere

about

Mad About Mountains Hasselt, Belgium

Piet de Pessemier created a universe that is engulfed in soft Americana and
melancholy alt. Country together with Myrthe Luyten (bass, vocals), Davy Jansen
(guitar, lap steel guitar, vocals) and drummer Pol Meunier. To capture the vintage
seventies nostalgia on the album, they decided to record ‘Radio Harlaz’ on an
analogue tape recorder. The album was canned on sixteen tracks and completely
