She can fly higher than most on just one wing
but she's modest so you wouldn't hear her say a thing
She's got power in her words that could knock you flat
but she's meek so you wouldn't hear her speak like that

I can fly high but I speak too much
I seek approval to remove all of worry's cold touch
but she brings the heat and my fears they melt
and it's the best damn feeling that I've ever felt

I may play words but I deliver straight truths
and I know my baby loves how my rhythm soothes
though we may be flawed when we go it alone
together our endeavours lighten our load

Her love's so soft but her minds so sharp
She can hammer like piano but she's sweet as a harp
No time for lies as we would testify
So if I play it just right I'll be a lucky guy

She keeps my feet firm on the ground
and I hold her up when she falls down
She never lets me dwell on fear
and I always let her know I'm near
our strengths they work together well
and in that balance we excel
and though we flow in different ways
our harmonies remains the same

We can stay tough when the going get's rough
such a divine alignment that I can't get enough
She ain't no fool plays it cool not cold an'
I've never met a girl with soul that's so golden

with her the chaos in my mind recedes
so I can meditate and generate my thoughts with ease
and though I'm broken I can play my part
cos though we all get broken only some lose heart

I know that you can't fix my world
you're human just like me
but since we've been together
things are looking so much better
than they've ever ever been

I've been playing instruments since I was about 7 or 8, I began on the piano, moved to the bass and only picked up the ukulele in my teens.
Whilst others were listening to their parent's 80's rock collections etc. I was listening to my Dad's Randy Newman collection along with the Beatles, Beach Boys, Supertramp, suffice to say I picked up a pretty 70's palette for music.
