How can I choose to sleep

I recorded this short solo vocal with a minidisc recorder while up in a tree. This is a one-take, one-track recording (with lots of delay added, to be sure). The bird you hear was actually accompanying me at the time. A later, expanded version of this song includes a banjo, accordion, and viola.

Lyrics:
“How can I choose to sleep, O God my God, when the eyes of them that long for thee are wakeful because of their separation from Thee? And how can I lie down to rest when the souls of Thy lovers are sore vexed in their remoteness from Thy presence?”
–Baha’u’llah
