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.


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
