Secret Touch: Background

Called “highly textural” by Martin Popoff in Contents Under Pressure, the piece evokes the idea that once you’re scarred by life, you become out of sync with the rhythms of the world around you, and your scar remains with you, like a secret touch on the heart, as you try to live and love again.

The line “secret touch on the heart” comes from Joseph Conrad’s Victory and “there is never love without pain” comes from Sister of My Heart by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni.

“I think ‘Secret Touch’ is my favorite song on Vapor Trails, and I love playing it live. It’s got a great intensity about it.”—Geddy in Contents Under Pressure
