about

So the big thing lately is that in less than four weeks I'm going to get married! It's a really big deal; the biggest deal. I think it is safe to assume that in the coming weeks this website is going to be a venue for much reflection on life and love. This week's song is a part of that. The lyrics pick up during a wild rain storm that Rebecca drove me through a couple of weeks ago on our way back from Massachusetts, where we applied for our marriage license. She braved the downpour while I marveled at the twisted remains of the forest on the shoulder of the highway. It looked like a twister had come through. It dawned on me that my life was in her hands, and that I trusted her deeply with it. This song reflects on our long friendship and more recent love, and the deeply intertwined nature of our lives. My light bends towards hers, and hers toward mine. I think this song jumps around a bit through time and space, anchored mostly by a pretty gnarly bass groove, and a few moments of insight. Thanks for listening.

lyrics

You're driving through the rainstorm
I'm looking out the window
I trust you got this one
And peering through the forest
And somewhere past the wreckage
I think I see the sun
See how the light
Bends around everyone
See how your hand
Guides us back
To the sun

Do me one more favor
Yes, anything for you dear
Be only who you are
And do me one more favor
Yes anything you ask of me
Is granted in the stars
See how your light
Fills the gaps in my heart
See how your eyes
Bend the light of the stars

And can you remember me
The way I was before?
I sure remember you, dear
From so many years before
And can you remember me
The way I was before?
I sure remember you, dear
From so many years before

See how your heart
Bends the course of your life
See how the dark
Leads us back to the light
