I've been writing a ton of new songs lately. Here's one from late 2019 that I want to share with you as it's also my entry to Recording King Guitars' songwriting competition.
It's written from a female and male perspective in each of the two verses/choruses. They are both a bit jaded. Maybe they are both a bit over trying to find their 'person', but somewhere in their letting go, find something even greater than imagined. It's a metaphor for life perhaps.
I hope you enjoy!
She said go out and find what you need.
Even if that doesn't include me.
This world is a vast and scary place to be.
So she said find a love that makes you feel free.
You're the one for me I know. Because my heart tells me so. And my worries and pain all just disappear.
And I sleep better at night when your arms hold me tight. The door is open, but nowhere would I rather be. For you are the love that makes me feel free.
He says I'll worship you, and adore;
all your quirks and then I'll love you some more.
I know we're both doing fine on our own,
but your presence makes me feel right at home.
You're the one for me I know. Because the signs all tell me so. And my inner child comes back to life.
And I sleep better at night when our bodies are pressed up tight. And I wake from my dreams to a love that makes me feel free.
You are the dream that makes me feel free.
Yes you are the love that makes me feel free.
