“The tree roots curve like your dress in the water…”
I was a California boy living through a New England winter when I wrote this line. This tree was about 5 minutes from my apartment. It was pretty cold, and it was difficult to leave the apartment because 1. It was cold 2. I had to take baby, and put baby in this mummy blanket in the stroller 3. Try to stroller around Boston’s cobblestone streets lined in snow.
I thought the tree looked like a dress, so I wrote down this lyric on my phone as I passed by on our walk!
Most of my songs start on the acoustic guitar. A few on this record started on piano, but even those ended up using guitars of some sort. I had a few other songs in the running that were more acoustic based, but “Come Back To Me Love” is the one that made the EP. I’ve included another one here that I really enjoyed writing, and perhaps I’ll use someday. It’s called “Let Me Hold You.”
