    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.

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
live

Track Name: Can't You See
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
Track Name: Look at Him Now
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
Track Name: The Wishing Well
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
Track Name: I'll Be Me
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
Track Name: Walk with Me
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
Track Name: Stronger
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
Track Name: Numbers
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
Track Name: On a Clear Day
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
Track Name: Radio Nowhere
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
