A Love Song and A Project
Love songs are a funny thing. I’m always asked what the background is – the inspiration and personal connection to every love song I wrote. Each and every song really. But with long songs I get a sly, “Who is this about?” (with a nudge and a wink). Perhaps it is the listener’s longing for the intensity that is suggested in the song; or, even better, a personal connection to that intensity found in their own life.
Not every love song is autobiographical – although you may be calling upon an emotion you’ve experienced in some other way and translating to the story in the song.
When an emotion strikes you bysurprise and you aren’t able to (or willing to) give it its proper place, then it might be “Something Like Love.” Is it autobiographical? Well.. that is the mystery isn’t it?
This song is part of a bigger project I’m working on. I’ll be making an announcement about that in the near future.

She came roaming into L.A.
on the first flight they could get her on
Took 5 years to finally meet her
when I turned around my heart was gone
Something like love, this don’t seem real
Something like love, got a hold of me
Something like love
Yeah something like it and everything like beautiful
4:30 in the morning and she nudges me to wake me up
Whispers, “baby baby baby entertain with that gentle touch”
Midnight or morning light, hold that girl yeah hold her tight
Boy you know that clock’s not on your side
A soft kiss lingers then she’s on a plane and headed home
And in my head spinning something like it or something more
