Week 35: By my echo

A song about staying in touch with what I feel, and not hardening myself, and how it really helps to have someone around to reflect my true self back at me. Chris did some very cool things with the production of this. It was a really nice surprise when he emailed to me, totally wasn’t expecting that. We’d been chatting earlier about the album we’re going to be making next year once the ‘song a week’ thing is over – about choosing the songs, and how we’re going to decide about how to produce each one. This is a nice taste of what’s to come in terms of interesting production techniques.

Lyrics:
Help me to find a way to stay soft in all this hardness
My skin is starting to grow so tough, in all this heartlessness

Be my echo
I’ll be your echo too
Two sounds colliding and rebounding in the blue

Help me remember my reasons to smile in all this sadness
Give me a place to unload my tears, when the world is cold

Be my echo
I’ll be your echo too
Two sounds colliding and rebounding in the blue

Somehow I keep on rolling forward through my days
And though sometimes I stumble still I find my way
Somehow I keep on finding colours in my grey
And though I sometimes mumble, still I find the words to say

Help me to weather my dangerous moods and help me move through
This string of tiny courageous moves connecting me to you

Be my echo
I’ll be your echo too
Two sounds colliding and rebounding in the blue
