One of my many side projects has me working on occasion with a band, and for an upcoming gig, a request was made to have this song played. I don’t think I had heard it since I was in high school, but upon listening to it (and writing out the tab), I remembered what a well-written song it is. The verse starts low (melodically), the pre-chorus gets higher, and the chorus is soaring.
The other thing I love about this song is the line “I have all I’ve waited for, and I could not ask for more.” I like the way it feels like his life has come together, not in a hurried or forced manner, and now he’s complete and full of gratitude and happiness. It just sounds like a good way to live, and a good way of thinking about life.
