Story of the Song: All my life I’ve wanted to do something perfect. Something lasting, created by the heart.  And then… he is perfect.  All I need to do is not change the sunrise, the heartbeat, the rain shower. A promise I can’t let go.  We stare, dance, dream deeper and deep.  But a question lingers whether I can rise to meet, to see… As we move the world gets smaller and small and while the orange sky turns blue I follow your gaze and I know our hearts are free.  But can I rise to meet, to see, to lead… you. Meanwhile, after everyone is asleep a lonely guitar plays staring studiously at the notes on a scroll, hour after hour. Soon a groove, a melody, a noise rises from the glow in the darkened corner and realizes the emotion in the air. Just two more notes…
