2. Know You
‘Know You’ is a song I wrote in May of 2018 right after I had graduated college. I was unemployed and finishing my first album and praying that something would come of it. I was surrounded by some of the best friends I have ever had in my life. We were embarking on a new chapter of life and the energy was so exciting. This song is about that new beginning, and about new friendships. It’s about hoping that what is around the corner is as beautiful as it’s hinting to be. The lyric in this song “Something new, something that we found” brings this imagery of a bunch of my friends on a hike, and we discover this glowing warm seed of joy. It’s not fully grown yet but we have discovered that it exists and we can plant it in relationships around us and watch it grow. Know You was written quite some time ago but it still resonates with me every time I begin a new journey. We are always being refreshed, and reborn even if it doesn’t see like what we are going through makes sense. Our future is promising if we embrace the positive possibilities and accept the challenging growing pains. This song is dedicated to all my friends who I have discovered joy with, and the many journeys we were not expecting. Challenges and roadblocks, all leading towards what was meant to be.
