about

Notes: Forest was born on Saturday at 7am. What a magical arrival! The following two days have been a beautiful blur. He is perfect and captivating. He is our son, and he is both brand new and somehow familiar all at the same time. What a gift he is.

I wrote this song at some point in the last couple of weeks, amidst preparations for his arrival. As such, it is not a proper reflection on the experience of meeting Forest, but rather a song of anticipation. The next couple of songs to follow will be the same. I want to keep these notes concise so I can return my attention to him, so I'll finish by saying that I was right when I wrote this. It's true that everything changes. Nothing is the same anymore. It's so much better now.

lyrics

I wonder about
The day I'll meet you
The color of the sky
A wave to crash through

Will I rub my eyes
To comprehend you?
A path in the wood
We journey into

I worry I don't know anything
But that'd be a lie
I know the rhythm of your heart
I know the stars in the sky
I know everything changes
So that's what we'll do

I think ahead to the days
Getting to know you
The shades of your ways
The weight of your truth

The truth like a seed
Waiting inside you
In the light of the sun
You'll know what to do

I worry I don't know anything
But that'd be a lie
I know the rhythm of your heart
I know the stars in the sky
I know everything changes
So that's what we'll do
