This song was written about a special someone that I have in my life. They mean the absolute world to me and this song expresses the simplest thing about them that has played a part in my feelings for them from the very beginning. I am the type of person that can very easily connect to others through their eyes. They say eyes are the windows to the soul and I truly believe that that is true. Even more so if you are a deep individual like myself who prefers to look way beyond surface level from the very moment you meet another individual. I feel that it's very important to do that, however, that does not mean that you cannot appreciate the small, simple things that make you grateful to have that special someone in your life. To see so much when looking someone in the eyes, you just know it's beyond a regular connection with that other person, it's something much more special and usually not the same exact thing you will find in other special people you meet in your life. There will always be that one person that's above the rest. It's important to show love, respect and appreciation and doing it in a creative and/or artistic ways is one of the best ways I feel someone could go about doing it.
I wrote thing song at a time where I felt a mixture of hope and desperation. This song is not only a call to those that are proud to be deep, intellectual individuals but it's also a call to those that have yet to awaken the deeper, darker, more intense parts of themselves. The parts of themselves that are very important if they are ever to become whole. Before writing these lyrics, I had gotten inspired by a close friend of mine who I could always see really deep into. Although they have made it a part of their life path to show others the way to awakening, I can see within them that they themselves have not fully awakened and have yet to see the full picture, what's truly in front of them. They focus so hard on helping others, which I have always found incredible but they forget about themselves. The question really is, how much longer can you help others when you haven't even finished helping yourself? These particular feelings I have about this person come and go, they aren't consistent. However, I can tell that fully awakening is a struggle for this person and writing these lyrics was a way for me to reach out to them and not just tell them, but show them that I am here and will help them move along their path and the process towards awakening.
These lyrics were written when I was going through a tough time not having somebody I love close to me anymore. I got to a point where I was so close to them being there and when they no longer were it was like what I was used to was snatched away from me so suddenly and because I wasn't expecting it, it hurt even more than it probably would have if I had seen it coming. However, something like somebody leaving you is not something you usually see coming. It just hit me out of nowhere and at that point in my life, that was the last thing I needed. This song is raw and real and was written while I was in the middle of going through a really rough time in my life. This song is relateable yet unique because even though it explains a situation that lots of us have gone through in our lives, I have managed to bring details that relate directly to my personal experience with this concept and I think that really helps these lyrics stand out as opposed to some others about this same subject that don't have the unique details that I've added in my version of these types of lyrics.
