The story behind this song...
I was feeling pretty low a few years ago and wrote so many songs as a way of escaping from myself. I never thought of myself as a very good lyricist, but after reading back what I had written in 10 minutes (along with the music) I took a step back and realised, these were from the very depths of my heart and soul. Hurt and heartache drove these feelings and story behind the song. I still revisit this particular track of mine and try to somehow analyse the meaning behind it! Do I need to? Maybe and maybe not. It's also filled with a sense of hope, endeavor and resilience relating to past relationships and events.
I hope you find some comfort or inspiration from 'Lights' and to go and pen your own song, poem or story.
Music heals the soul and I can't tell you how I feel, but I can find a song that can....
Say something to me
Just say it like you mean it
It meant so much you see
I'm constantly achieving
Won't stop believing
The voice and sounds
Are truths in hearing
The time we spent and I'd relent
Gathered back all is lost
When I see those lights
In your eyes
In your eyes
In your eyes.
Thanks for your ongoing support for me and my music! It really does mean the world.
