with you

I wrote this song after a basketball game one night. I had played really bad, and gotten really frustrated. It’s the longest song on the album, and took the most work to record. Tristan was staying at my house one weekend, so I made him help me. He played the percussion, some guitar, sang some ooooohs, and made the plopping noises with his mouth. Thanks, Tristan!

My favorite parts of this song are the strange tempo shift and the new C#m fingering I learned while writing it.

“With You”

Tonight, I stumbled all over the place,

Tonight, I didn’t have the cards to play,

Tonight, things just didn’t go my way,

But I like me better when I’m with you, maybe together we could make it through,

I’m down here doubting enough for us both, the light in your eyes gives me hope,

You make me smile like a fairy tale, if I’m Jonah be the whale,

I like me better when I’m with you, maybe together we could make it through,

Tonight, all my eyes could see,

Were giants, coming down on me,

I feel, like I floating out to sea,

But I like me better when I’m with you, maybe together we could make it through,

You’re always chipper like you’re in a good mood, but I’m melancholy so I need you,

Your smile is good news and your heart’s like gold, nothing but sunshine in your soul,

I like me better and I like you too, maybe together we could make it through,
