A violin cover of Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber’s awesome new track, I don’t care. Featuring me on violin, me on Acoustic Guitar, and on cajon… me!
I did some busking at the Echuca Farmer’s Market, and recorded parts of my performance. This is The Fray’s You Found Me, which I find to be a real raw and honest conversation that you might have with God if you just came across God on the street one day.
From “You Found Me” on Wikipedia
You Found Me” is a song by American rock band The Fray. It was released in November 2008 as the lead single from their eponymous second studio album.

The single was digitally released in the U.S., Canadian, UK, Australian and French iTunes Stores and had a physical release later on.
The song became the group’s third single to sell 2 million downloads in the United States, after “How to Save a Life” and “Over My Head (Cable Car)“.
It has sold 3.6 million copies in the US as of February 2015, making it one of the most downloaded rock songs. The single was certified double platinum by the RIAA and the ARIA in 2009.
The song was nominated for a Choice Music: Rock Track award at the 2009 Teen Choice Awards.

“War is War, and Hell is Hell, and of the two, War is an awful lot worse.”
As I’ve been thinking about ANZAC Day tomorrow, this song has been running through my head a lot, and then this scene just seemed to pair up with it. We need to remember and honour those who sacrificed their lives, but never glorify war, and do everything within our power to never needing people to have to sacrifice their lives again.
“To World War None.”
