Quick note: The streaming quality on bandcamp is not great, and it can be particularly harsh with sparse, acoustic material like this. I assure you the download quality is much higher than streaming. Worth the buck if you like the tune. Now back to the program...

There's something cool about the first recording you make of a song idea. There's a sort of magic that can be really hard to recapture or improve upon. I feel like this is a good example. It's a simple, stripped down song, and the performance is very much in line with that vibe. If you listen carefully at the end, you can even hear me hit pause on the keyboard as the last chord rings out. This was initially intended as a bit of a song sketch, something to capture the idea and maybe build on later, but listening back, there was just something I really liked about the way it came out so I've decided to share it here! Enjoy, and if you dig it, please throw me a buck for the download! Thanks!


I wanna be the one that makes you come undone,
that makes your river run - I wanna be the one

I wanna be that light that keeps you up at night,
the moon to your rising tide - I wanna be the one

You should know I’ll never, ever do you harm

I only wanna know how it feels to hold you in these arms

I wanna be the one when all is said and done,
from sunrise to setting sun, I wanna be the one...I wanna be the one
