THE INSPIRATION

“You see yourself, you see only faults”

What do you say to the one you love, when they don’t believe that you want to be with them and that you want someone else?

How many times to we have to say how much we love a woman? We can tell them that they look beautiful but it seems a up hill struggle to get them to believe. As time passes none of us get better looking hence the reason the music business is always looking for youth rather than content. What the music industry fail to understand is that market is not just limited to one age group otherwise people would not go to see Al Pacino or Daniel Craig.

Youth can only ever be about potential and so many crash and burn, it is about looking deeper. When my wife smiles I do indeed see the inner child shining through. Our body may age but I am yet to believe our spirit does.

Sure we get scared by life but we become more interesting with age too after are we not the sum of our parts? If I bought a Porsche or a Jag, I am not buying the car because it is new it is because that car is the sum of its parts, their reputations have been made over the years, put a different badge on it and it loses its value after all it is not just how it looks but what it stands for.

Time with someone you love does not diminish if that person has depth, it grows and becomes complex. I wrote this song with this point in mind.

 

RECORDING NOTES

This song is one of the few songs that I have recorded live with just an acoustic guitar.

To Be With You

To Be With You

Verse 1
You talk to me of loneliness and how you feel down.
You think that you feel down, well I feel down, cause you shut me out.
All I want and nothing else is to be with you.
To be with you is all I want and honey that's the truth.

Chorus 1
To be with you, just to be with you.

Verse 2
When you see yourself you see only faults and that's so wrong of you.
It's so wrong of you, you don't see the truth that I'm in love with you.
When you smile  there stands a child in your place, I fall in love with you.
I fall in love with you every time you smile, I want to be with you.

Chorus 2
I want to be with you, I want to be with you,
I want to be with you.
I want to be with you, I want to be with you,
I want to be with you.

Mid
Words are cheap, I've heard them say,
but how else can a man explain?

Chorus 3
I want to be with you, I want to be with you,
I want to be with you.

Chorus 4 counter melody
All the days of my life, I want to be with you.
Yeah when I look in your eyes I want to be with you

Chorus 5
I want to be with you, I want to be with you,
I want to be with you.
