PAINTED MY LOVER
I wrote the lyrics to Painted My Lover after I saw a crazy painting by some crazy artist whose name I unfortunately can’t remember and it drives me crazy not being able to remember who it is.
This song is about being in perfect Love where nothing else could ever compare to the feeling of everything being so right there in the moment. The gentleness, the grace, the everything.
The place where everything just comes together, as it should, in the right way.
Falling in love changes our reality in such a profound way as our beings mix with the heady scent of romance that lightens our spirits and carries us off.
It’s a Love that if it ended tomorrow or the next minute, it wouldn’t matter.
The fact that it was at all is what’s important.
I love the slow waltz to this song and always feel like getting up and dancing to it.
Painted My Lover was the first time I had ever composed a song with strings in mind, the orchestration is something I’m really proud of and with the help of my good friend Herrin we managed to make something quite beautiful.
Herrin’s soft lead guitar dances beautifully with the strings and his piano playing adds a nice touch to the romantic feeling of the song.
