Dear people of the internet,

This is the third and final song of my Quarter Life Crisis EP. This one is especially personal to me. Along with "I'll Wait For You," this is a "Song For Trudy" that essentially wrote itself like a diary entry. I owe Nick Thomas a big thank you for most of the lyrics and melody on the chorus and Janaya Trudel for bringing this track to life with her beautiful singing.

Pax Caritas et lol,


First time I saw you at your show
You were singing a love song I didn't know
Red shirt bare feet with your hair in braids
Singing your heart out up on stage
And I knew, I knew this would be love

That night I saw you with new eyes
Like stargazing unfamiliar skies
The whole galaxy staring back at me
Baby stars burning where your eyes would be
And I knew, I knew this would be love

Cause there are things in this world that I don't understand
Like war, taxes, government and the lay of the land
But all of these remain mysteries
But one thing is for sure - you are worth waiting for

I dreamt I saw you at your barn dance
I feared it might be my last chance
So I grabbed your hand and I spun you 'round
You spun so fast that my heart unwound
And I knew, I knew this would be love

So guard your heart and keep it strong
It's what you've been doing all along
And when you're ready I won't be too far away
I'll come running at the speed of sound
Sweep your feet up off the ground
And I'll show you how two hearts can beat as one
You turned to me with a tear in your cheek
Said "let it happen if it's meant to be"
I remember everything about that night
But I can't remember saying goodbye

Ever since I saw you at your show
I've been learning the love song that you know
