I was at my sister in law's apartment in Toronto when I started writing this song. They have a digital piano that I was practicing on. I was in the process of working out some lyrics for an unfinished tune that I was writing, but then I took a break from that and started improvising on some chord changes just for fun.
After a few minutes I had stumbled onto a sequence of chords that I really liked, making their way down the scale and then ascending back up, and it sounded unique enough to me that I thought it would be a great template for a good song.
Emotionally, I thought it had a very consoling and soothing sound to it and in this case the sound of the music was the inspiration for the lyrics.
The main theme of this song is based on unconditional love. It’s about someone who will do anything and be anything for you in times of need. I threw in a little TV show reference that I took from my childhood as well.
Listen for it on the Music page and see if you recognize it!
