Every girl wants to have a song written for her. It's a very flattering notion. Well Alex, my girlfriend, asked me to write her a song early on while we had been dating. I told her I would eventually. When I could. When it really meant something. I tried writing a pop-punk song. It was good but I had to put it on the back burner because I couldn't continue lyrics on it. Besides it was more of a full band song and I am just one man.
So as we continued our relationship I learned more about her and more and more. I love her. She has gone through things and I just wanted her to know that I loved her and would never hurt her. I conceived the idea of writing a song that was simple and pretty. A song that would make her feel comfortable. That idea was in mind along with the idea of me writing minimal pretty music (a pretty fingerpicking pattern surrounding some chords) around a very inspired and meaningful poem, or the lyrics. That is what happened. When I recorded it I decided I wanted to do some cool harmony at the end and ad an Ambient rain track. Because rain instills a feeling of calm. Music to me is more than the technical it is about the feeling. The love for the art. I wanted to express myself in more ways than just a catchy tune.
