I wrote "Dear Boy" in the June 2020 about my son, who is also my best friend. I had always wanted to write a song about him, and for him. This will always be my favorite song that I've ever written. "Dear Boy, I love your soul".
"We Live in a World" came to my heart at the end of May 2020. I wrote it in just a few hours. It's the heaviest song I've ever written. It's a song about the past (history), the present, and the future, and does not take sides. It's a song about truth and optimism. "What if we lived in a world...?"
This is the first "break-up" song I've written, but it's a positive one if there ever was one. It's about getting over it and moving forward, and about the things that I want, and what I'm going to go after. I also let it be known that "I love to party".
I wrote this song at the beginning of the pandemic, and it's simply about what was (and is) on my mind, things that I saw (and still see) in my mind, what I wanted to do (and am doing more of) moving forward. It's also a song about gratitude and appreciation. "I need to do more yoga, I know".
Writing a song about a woman that I met (but hardly knew) wasn't planned, but I couldn't get her out of my mind for a long time, no matter how hard I tried. "Will this light burn brighter, or will it burn out slow?".
I took my Baby Taylor guitar with me on my stand-up paddle board in August 2019, and floated around and wrote this song in about 20 minutes. It's about the things that often go through my mind, and it's about being ready. It's alsong of faith, dreams, and hope. "I wanna know when you're gonna call?"
We all have tough days, but before we go to bed each night maybe we should try to celebrate something, think of the good, pray, or even write down something positive that happened that day. "You and me we're gonna Win Tonight".
