Mila

Written by John von Ahlen

Round and round then back again
In my heart and in my brain
Call your name and all I hear is
Mila, Mila

Took another, for a lover
Then discovered, like no other
We come together, and so forever
Mila, Mila

0030 I was thinking about Johanna and had the urge to write a song for her daughter Mila. It's been on my mind for a while. I was thinking of O Superman crossed with Julie by Eurythmics.
I just messaged Jo and asked her to sing me some scales in the form of Do Re Mi So Fa La Ti Do, and thought I would take the Mi and La sections and cut/sample them into Mila. So Jo would hear the end song and not realised she sung a song for her daughter, and hopefully be a nice surprise for her.
0042 - Just finished writing the chorus and verse chords. I was channelling Twin Peaks and then veered off somewhere else, which is great from a creative (and legal) perspective.
0111 in the morning. Just went for a walk to 711 with Jack. The city is empty and the streets are mine.

NB - I started another song called Windy and gave it catalogue #212 but decided to over-ride it as I don't think I will ever release Windy officially.

Saturday the 29th of February, 2020.
Spent the morning rehearsing for the Manchester gig. I am so sick of the songs by now. It's been a month of rehearsals!

Spent the afternoon with Michael T at the Greek Festival. Jack had a ball as well, but after 6 hours I think he had enough of the crowds. We all had a great time. We had coffee, too much Greek food, and sat and watched the crowd go by, as well as enjoying all the entertainment, both mobile and on stage.
I checked in my AirBNB guests at 2000 hours and they were a lovely couple.
Got back to the studio at 2025 hours and I messaged Adam and let him know that I wasn't going to come over, which is a shame because I really wanted to. But tomorrow is today's yesterday, right?
I had the inspiration to keep working on this track, and wrote the chorus lyrics at 2055 hours. Maybe I can come up with some verses.

Chorus 2055
Round and round then back again
In my heart and in my brain
Call your name and all I hear is
Mila, Mila

Coda 2110
Took another
For a lover
Then discovered
Like no other

We come together
And so forever / Then forever
Mila, Mila


If I ever
Thought I'd never
Love Forever

Love another
