about

History's most beloved love songs are grand and sweeping, encapsulating the highest peaks or lowest valleys of the romantic experience. As well worn as these two poles of experience may be in the art form, they often fail to capture the essence of being with a person and knowing them. I am looking for a simpler kind of love song about daily experience, about opening the door to find somebody you're expecting, about building your compass around a person, about striving together, about the relief in being able to rely on somebody. I have many more grand and sweeping love songs to write, but they're too easy in a way. This one hopes to do something else.

lyrics

All the way to our place
Carry a word with me
Up in the sky we will try to see it

On the way I think of you
On the way I think of you
On the way I think of you
On the way I think of you

I have been here before
I've got a memory like this
I have seen angles of this in our pictures

On the way I think of you
On the way I think of you
On the way I think of you
On the way I think of you
