about

A hopeful thought from one young lover to another. Pharis wrote the entire song in her head, while on a drive trying to put our daughter to sleep. Inspired by a whole lot of Tin Pan Alley 1920s jazz.

lyrics

You are the best thing, the very best babe
A shining star above a dark and stormy night
There were no more late night phone calls
Lying on your pillow with a smile
But there’s just one thing I can’t help wondering
As I lie awake and dream of days to come
How someone like you could want someone like me
To be just the very someone I am

I could be stronger, more daring
Arise like a phoenix from all flames
Be cruel when I need to, and love all who love you

But it’s a sin oh and it’s a terrible lie
To pretend to be someone I’m not
So I’m sending to you this little prayer
Please let just me be just your love

And to all those who listen it whispers down below: “Slow down, dig deep, and love your neighbor.” ... more
