about

A reggea-inspired song that tells the story of how "V" and I met. The first core single from the album, "Songs About V".

lyrics

Verse
-- I recall the first time that I
saw ya. It was an autumn day in Cali-
fornia. Your smile alone lit up the
room…(hey)

-- I hesitated when I ap-
proached ya, ‘cause you had a man appearing to
hold ya. Still, I didn’t want to as-
sume…(hey)


Pre-Chorus
So I a-
verted my attention and left you alone. No
sense in taking time out to consider unknowns. If it’s
meant to be then it will be and it will be shown for my
eyes...to see. I was

tending to some business and greeting some fans, then
suddenly I felt the warm touch of your hand. I
turned around and saw your face and right on command you
spoke...to me.


Hook
Ve-
nus...come let me talk to
you. The way that I feel is so
true, so tell me what you wanna
do? I’ll do anything for you.


Verse 2
-- It’s nighttime before a per-
formance, and I’m watching people dancing be-
fore us. that’s when I see you dancing under the
lights…(alright)

-- Your gentleman caller was
by you. He couldn’t keep a steady beat though he
tried to. It didn't matter 'cause I had you in my sights…

Pre-Chorus
When it was
time for me to take the stage, I looked through the crowd, but the
building was so dark and all the people were loud. Once I
opened up and sang my song I heard you calling out to
me...to me.

And
once the show was over, well, I sat all alone, while I
watched the people pack up as they headed for home.
Then
suddenly you came up and you asked me if the space next to
me...was free. You said

Hook

Bridge
I re-
member so much of that night. Even the
stars were shining bright. Every
moment that we shared was real, it’s like we
spoke with our souls revealed. Who would’ve

thought that this would lead to more, that this en-
counter had much more in store? We both
felt there was no need to rush...the first
chapter in the story of us.
