I usually write my songs by making up the tune in my head first. Then I will pick up my guitar to work out the chords. However, with this song, I was just sitting strumming a D chord and the melody just came.
I spent a wee bit of time writing the lyrics which I think are a bit soppy, but as the song is for Yvonne (and she liked them) I thought well they must be no too bad.
Jim came over and I played him the song. He liked the track and then (after a good blether, a cup of tea and a digestive biscuit) he wrote the middle 8 which I thought was great. A sort of dreamy melody. We started recording the song a few days later.
The musicians and singers came up to the studio and (in between tea and biscuits, yet again) they did a really great job.
..... I really hope you like this song........Peter
