Biography

I am now ( 2010 ) 54 years old. Vegetarian for 25 years,- a small part of achieving constantly higher levels of cosmic consciousnes.

I have played the guitar allmost as long as I remember, starting out on my mothers accoustic, steel strings guitar given to her for her 14th year birthday by her father,- my grand father. Later I bought an old Høfner which I still have, and in 1973 I bought a Stratocaster which looks like it has being fighting at the front line in all wars since then ....
I also have an Ensoniq TS10 synth.

I chosed the artist name Vela-X way back in the begining of the 80's, as one of my main interests has allways been astronomy. Besides the wor Vela has interesting meanings in spanish,- a language I also speak fluently.

I do not know about influences, but after teaching my self playing to a certain pont, I started listening to records by Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Rolling Stones, Beatles, Credence Clearwater Revival and some others to find out how they played the guitar.

The touch of your fingertips

The touch of your fingertips

Text and music by Harald Eide / Vela-X 1995

1.Él / He:
I need you, I need you my love
I need your kisses,- that whisper that you love me.
A kiss like a sweet angels breath,-
your fingertips touch my skin.
Take me up to Heaven,
and fill me with peace.
Lift me up, and carry me home,-
and let me sleep ( rest ? ) in your arms.

2.Ella / She:
I need you, and I’ll give you my love.
I’m gonna kiss you and whisper that I love you.
I’ll touch with my sweet fingertips,-
I’ll let you sleep ( rest ? ) in my arms.
I’ll take you to Heaven,
and fill you with peace.
Come to me ! Let me carry you home !
Come, sleep ( rest ? ) in my arms.

I N S T R U M E N T A L

3.Ambos / Both:
Take my hand, it’s evening outside,-
rest on the pillow, we’re gonn'a fly to Heaven.
Come ( here ), cause I love you my dear,-
Come into my arms,- don’t fear !
Come to me,- I’ll love you,-
hold tight trough the night.
Come to me,- and let my
fingertips caress you tonight.

Rain dance

Harald Eide / 1987

The sky is cloudy and grey
as I walk along the road
while the rain is comin' down.
I'm happy ( that ) I bought these boots
the other day.
I feel I have to smile
as I'm dancin' in the rain.
I'm headin' for the flat
of the one that I love,-
she's waitin' for me
by the open fire place.
And when I see her,
I'm gonna kiss her.
I'm gonna take her in my arms
and carry her in.

"What if we go for a walk ? ", she says
with a smile on her lips
while she's puttin' on her boots.
She reaches for my hand
and I take her hand in mine,-
umbrella's commin' up,-
sound of rain drops commin' down.
The smell of wet gras, and from the leaf of the trees
reaches my nose,-
yes, this is to live.
And when I look at her,
I want'a kiss her.
I want'a take her in my arms
and carry her in.

I feel her hand, warm and soft....
She turns towards me, her lips get close,
they get closer....
Her hands are everywhere,-
eyes that shine like stars.
I'll have to try to escape,
but her kisses make me stay, oh yeah !
The air of perfume makes me dizzy and weak,-
can't move.
She takes me in her arms, and rocks me
like a child.....

I'm happy and I know that God smiles
as I'm dancin' in the rain
with the girl He gave to me.
Kiddin'n and laughin' and dancin' along,-
I'm happy as can be,
and love is all that I can see.
We're headin' for the flat
og the one that I love.
She's waitin' now for me
to carry her up the stairs.
And when I do it,
I want'a kiss her.
I want'a take her in my arms
and carry her in.
I feel her hands, warm and soft....
She turns towards me, her lips get close,
they get closer........

Her hands are everywhere,-
eyes that shine like stars.
I'll have to try to escape
but her kisses make me stay, oh yeah !
The air of perfume makes me dizzy and weak,-
can't move.
She takes me in her arms, and rocks me
like a child.....

Discography

So far I have not done much with my music, even if I have comoposed more than 100 songs. In 1988 I finished recordings in a profesional studio for a 4 track vinyl EP which I did make,- but never did anything to sell.

I have uploaded a few songs here. But one of them, "Rain Dance" which is an uncomplicated love rock, shows up with title Spor 2.
So far I do not find where to edit the songs title,- uploading it again does not help...

"The touch of your fingertips" is my entry for 12th Annual Great American Song Contest. I composed it in 1995. Unfortunately I have not added vocals so far, but the text is included. It is a love ballad for two.

The guitar piece is from my song "I'm gonna throw myself into your armes when I see you again tomorrow ! ". Short title....
