about

Whenever I’m at a loss for words I only need to read a few Pablo Neruda poems and I receive an ecstatic near-overload of my senses.

Here is a song I wrote for Andrew as a Christmas present. I can’t say it’s “about” Andrew since the words aren’t mine but I was struck by them in a way that was very personal.

None of that really matters because the present of the song wasn’t that I wrote a song for him but it was that I let him do whatever he wanted to the song, producing/engineering wise. When you make a project in a team, you have to let go, and you have to trust that you chose a creative partner whose tastes and choices will mostly align with yours, and when they don’t, you trust that your compromises will not mean a dulling or watering down of the thing.

lyrics

All night I slept with you
Next to the sea on islands
Wild and sweet
You were
Pleasure and sleep
Between
Fire and water
Perhaps
Very late

I sailed by your side
Your eyes
Bread and Wine
Love and Anger
I heap
Upon you
Because
You are the cup
That was
Waiting for
My life

The Most Loyal Toronto, Ontario

The Most Loyal write and record songs about death, other people's breakups, heavenward angst, and gardening.
