Description

"When I composed this song, I started with the idea that the title would be I’ve Got My Eye On You. I conceived of it as a Walter Donaldson sort of thing; very 1920’s but dressed up in a 1950’s arrangement. When I gave it to Paul, he tried to write lyrics to my title, but he came up empty. As usual, he suggested something better and wrote it in no time. The undulating chromatics sound much more nautical than anatomical. Sometimes your collaborators can know (or feel) certain aspects (especially the large ones) better than you do yourself. If you keep an open mind, you may be surprised." - David Berger
