Sometimes, songwriters write songs to tell a story. This is one of those times. The crickets, the trees, the cloudless nights, the chair and every part of this song is real. While the lyrics of ‘Waiting for you” describe the physical scene, the melody actually captured the deepest emotions present during the storytelling – sadness and hope, longing, serenity, peace and even frustrations.
If I can harvest all my experiences and convert each chapter into songs, then I can probably listen to them when I’m frail and old…and be reminded of important moments in my life – those that made me experience emotions that moved me…and then maybe, even just for a while, it’ll give me a chance to relive those particular moments again.
