From the recording "When You're With Me"
As with most of my songs...the music riff, or hook, was found - long before I knew what the song would be about, lyrically. This is one, of a few "relationship recovery" songs, on this project - but, let's face it...all music is therapy of one sort, or another :-)
When love grows cold - and you're feeling old...where do you turn? When your dreams and plans - slip through your hands - and you find yourself alone
There's an open door - waiting to explore...someone's standing there (note: I sang "waiting" instead of "standing", on the album...oops - it happens)
Chorus; When you're with me - when you're with me - when you're with me...the skies are blue. When you're with me - when you're with me - when you're with me...all things are new.
So you step outside - try to find the sun - while all this rain is falling down. Can you start again - believe once more...there's something worth living for.
There's that open door - waiting to explore...she's waiting there.
You make things new - that's what you do...can you heal my heart!?
