about

This was the first love song I wrote for my wife, Gwen, that I actually liked. Yeah, there were others. But they lacked depth. They lacked a good story.

Rhythmically, the music for this song was based on how I play “Gypsy Rover”. The story is about feeling lost, finding love, and making a life together with the person you love.

It is my story of music and romance. I felt lost before I met Gwen. But I fought to keep searching. Then we met. We got to truly know each other and fall in love in London. We connected on our joint love of New Orleans, where she lived before Hurricane Katrina. I won a contest for a free trip to Galway. We traveled there one cold, rainy April.

It’s a song about adventure in both love and life. Our life together is a constant adventure. I’m happy to say the adventure continues even with our kids.

lyrics

In younger days I used to wander
Through the lonely lanes of life.
Spun out of control, dizzy and alone
Nothing running right.

* Now I have love inside me
Wherever I may roam.
I have my family beside me.
I'm never alone.

I turned my back on dissonance.
Struck a new chord and hit it twice.
Raced towards the sun and a new world begun.
And then I met my wife.

Ate fish and chips on the streets of London.
Savored Abita in New Orleans.
Walked in cold rain of Galway town.
She was prettier than a dream.

Music alone was my one companion.
But songs alone have no melody.
Now there's adventure and love in my life.
And then the cries of our baby.
