From Me To You

At times the anticipation of something that you're almost certain you're going to enjoy is enough to inject your lungs with an excited breath and swing a rope over your heart to make it skip. That's the sort of feeling you'd get going to meet someone that you love inside out, that feeling you'd have on the way to your 18th birthday party or as you open the door to your house as you smell the irresistible perfume of your mum's cooking. I tried to throw my net around it and catch in "From Me To You".

The story behind the song is a love story involving all the inevitable overhauls that your system is hit with when you get swept away by the thoughts of being with the person you love. I was towards the beginning of my journey in love when I wrote the song and those dizzy feelings of excitement were stirred in amongst all varieties nerves. Listening back takes me through so many of those excited walk-skips over to eagerly awaited meet-ups and I hope, perhaps, it brings you back through some too.

Lyrics

The leaves have grown like a roof above my head
And the sun pipes through all the little gaps nature has left
Breathing pollen pods like sherbet in the breeze
I hear candy wrappers when I tread on fallen leaves

Cause it’s a mud path to a place a bit cleaner
But it’s spotless spotted with the sun specks dear cause
It’s the quickest route
From me to you

So step by step on a pathway grain by grain
Crunching symphonies and painting dirt with shadow stains
I’m watching light beams beam out dust in the air
And I’m whispering to the rocks that I’m almost there

Cause it’s a mud path to a place a bit cleaner
But it’s spotless spotted with the sun specks dear cause
It’s the quickest route
From me to you

The daylight spice seems unbeatable and it’s almost that
But it ain’t quite as nice when I’m on my way back

Cause it’s a mud path to a place a bit cleaner
But it’s spotless spotted with the sun specks dear cause
It’s the quickest route
From me to you

Cause it’s a mud path to a place a bit cleaner
But it’s spotless spotted with the sun specks dear cause
It’s the quickest route
From me to you
