Always In My Heart

from Variants by Amy Denio / Spoot Music

subscriber exclusive


It's been a while since I had seen or chatted with my Swiss bandmate from the (ec) nudes and Pale Nudes. He developed leukemia in 2014, and recently we spoke again. I decided to make him a song to cheer him up.

I took his name WAEDI WALTER GYSI and fed it through my musical alphabet. I played the resulting tones on bass, and built the song up from there.

Recorded & mixed on Ableton in December, 2021.


Veni vidi vici
(we came we saw we conquered)
Volando sui nostri bici
(flying on our bicycles)
Siamo tutti amici
(we are all friends)
Loro chi amano i pici sono amici
(a quote from Roberto Barcucci:
Those who love pici ~ the pasta from Montepulciano ~ are friends)

Veni vidi baci
(we came we saw, kisses)
Daiamo i baci veraci
(let's give true kisses)
Carrezzando le nostre facce
(carressing our faces)
con l'amore della pace
(with the love of peace)

Waedi du bist meine liebeli
Always in my heart
Our souls will never part

(then nonsense words rhyming with my mispronunciation of your name)
Waedeli baedeli
Kusseli busseli
Waedeli zaedeli
Kusseli busseli
