Ik wil voelen is a song that was written for the large venue Christmas show Back to Oz. In Back to Oz, this song was sung by the Tinman. It is one of many songs in that production. Here, Sacha Muller and I re-recorded the song because suddenly the text seemed very much to resonate with the predicament that many of us are in during the Covid-19 lockdown. I think that many of us can sing along with the Tinman when he sings:
Let me feel I’m alive
Let me sob with pain
Let me swim in happiness
Let me be with you
