It has been a little while since I authored a straightforward love song. This one is simple, quiet, and reflective. I spend a lot of energy tripping over topics a whole lot less weighty than this. Early in my career as a songwriter, I developed a way of thinking that casts love songs as trivial. I've grown to understand that notion to be a misunderstanding born of an unfamiliarity with love, which I have since remedied with the help of my wife. At worst, love songs are commonplace, a fact which still buoys my impulse to shy away from them. Truthfully, this type of song intimidates me. Because they are so common, love songs are the hardest thing to write with any originality or distinctiveness. Sincerity is one's only reliable tool. I've done my best to wield it here. This writeup seems a bit dry and academic, but the song is not. I have written a true thing.


Oh lips that kiss at my cheeks
Oh hands that grasp at my hands
Oh heart that's beating in time
Oh mind with key to my mind

What is impossible?
What is impossible?
Words like "impossible"scattering

Oh queen and king of the Earth
Light at the end of the day
Simple unstoppable notion
She with the way of the ocean

What is impossible?
What is impossible?
Words like "impossible"scattering
