  • Frontman Martin Smith (from Cross Rhythms): "Whilst visiting one of the red light districts in Mumbai, India, I came across this little girl who stood out from the crowd. We couldn't take our eyes off each other and I knew something was happening to me. I returned to the hotel but couldn't shake off what I felt. I just kept thinking about her. I returned to England and my wife and I talked about the possibilities of adopting her. We definitely opened the door and went on a journey with it, but during the process the mother of the child decided to keep her. Of course, this was the right thing and the mum is now out of the trade and working a normal job. My heart had been changed, and in some crazy way I feel like I'm her dad, and we are now involved in helping with that project. It's a simple love song, an unlikely love song but very pure. This song is for Fahreen."
