high above the clouds
Amy brought a poem she had written in honor of her father who liked to write verses that began with, “Roses are red, Violets are blue…” And although her lyrics may start with those words, where they go from there and where they take you are well beyond the clouds.
All that was needed to set Floating aloft was the right music and vocal arrangement, and when the stars aligned, we had magic! I remember working on the chorus with Amy when the chord progression took me to a place I’d never been before. It was like flying for the first time–complete with wonder and a dash of fear–you love the excitement but there’s also the discovery of previously unknown worlds.
Floating is now familiar territory for both of us. It’s a song that when I hear it, takes me away from the day-to-day, and into a world of unlimited possibilities…
