From the recording Touch & Sound (Album)
“When Daybreak Comes” is a piano piece about the stillness of the dawn. There is something special about the stillness of the early morning; I can’t quite put it into words so, for me, music is one of the best ways to express emotion without using words.
“In the morning stillness, when the world is just waking up and your conscious mind hasn't fully taken over, you may feel a connection or passageway to another world, and a feeling that something is about to happen in yours. It's like a quiet storm is coming. You can feel the distant rumble of thunder on the horizon, yet you have no idea of the deluge your life is about to experience.” - Padma Lakshmi
