Hang up the phone
A note from Ula:
"I started ‘Hang Up The Phone’ on a flight from someplace I can’t remember to Ottawa, Ontario. I had just gotten off of the phone with my dad for the last time.
I sat crying with my face pointed out of the window and I pulled out my keyboard. looking out at the land and sea disappearing into transient shades of pink, purple, and blue, I recorded the piano part that you hear as the intro to this song.
It would take me over another year to finish it. I have poured so much of my grief into its expression.
I don’t want to rely on songwriting to allow me to feel, but I have come to recognize that it is a gift and not a burden. It is my way to show the beauty in the most heartbreaking moments of life. "
