about

This song is about my girlfriend. DUH. More precisely it's about how I feel over the seven years we've been together she has made me into a better person. And how I don't have to be afraid of anything, because I always have her to help me through it. Love ya, boo.

lyrics

I live in the present
So my past is kind of blurred
I would scream my brash opinions
Just to make sure I was heard
And I showed off all my talents
But I never aspired to art
Until I met you
And my tiny chest began to grow a heart

You with your quiet smile
And the humility you prefer
Beating back all of your confidence
So you wouldn't cause a stir
You put everyone before you
And I guess that's why I felt
I had never met someone like you
I wished that I was more like you myself

Since I found you I have not felt fear
My path isn't clear year after year
But I get to walk with you
And if I recall
You are the reason for it all

So as we stayed up late nights
Just chit-chatting on the phone
Something began to swell inside of me
Something I had never known
And for the first time in our short lives
We had something good to teach
People thirty years our senior
Would behoove to hear our speech

Sir and ma'am if you would listen
We feel we have something to tell
It's a simple tip but we promise
It will unlock you from your cell
Through all of life's curveballs
Its most common trick by far
Is missing what you've always wanted
Cuz you're too busy counting stars

So I hold her close and tight
Because with everything I see
I don't think there's another puzzle piece
That could fit so perfectly beside me
My life it will be easy
Though I'm at the starting line
There's not a challenge I can't tackle
When I have your hand in mine

Since I found you I have not felt fear
My path isn't clear year after year
But I get to walk with you
And if I recall
You are the reason for it all

(A sampled music box plays the melody while a piano arpeggiates underneath, guitar joins the arpeggio fun too)

I will bravely climb that steep incline
With your hand securely clasped in mine
