I wrote this with a chord that I have been wanting to use for quite a while so was pleased to have found a way to get it in. (Gm11 for those that care)
I got back from work and literally first takes all the way which I never do. One guitar, one vocal, a bass and two dark harmonium sounds underneath to fill out the sound.
What's old to you is new to me,
It all depends on relativity,
An hour can seem like forever,
A day can flash right by,
The ground beneath your feet,
Is 4.5 billion years old,
So come in from the cold.
What's new to you,
I have seen it all before,
It's nothing but a metaphor,
Tell me what was it you saw yesterday?
I promise I won't tell a soul,
I'll take your secrets to the grave,
Buy the things you love and crave,
and try to keep you close to me, Emily.
You know you mean the world to me,
The moon and stars and everything,
The universe is empty without you,
The sky is dark and grey instead of blue,
You know you are the world to me,
The elements and everything,
Space and time mean nothing without you,
and I'm the one that makes us into two.
