You and I

The following is an original song that I wrote for one of my my very good friends who will be getting married later this summer.  When someone asks you to write a song for their wedding it is quite possibly the most daunting thing in the world.  I've never been in love like that, hell I don't know if I've been in love at all when I really think about it, so how in the world am I supposed to write about it?  So I decided to have them each write a list about all the the little things they love about each other and found that what they wrote was strikingly similar.  Those two simple lists abstractly evolved (how in the world do you put "the time she puked on the paddle boat" into a song?) into this song.

The song is sort of a work in progress, but the basic form is all there.  I'm working on adding some overlapping guitar parts and harmony, as well as a cello part with the help of my sister.  I'm pretty happy with how it's turned out so far and hope you enjoy it!

And please excuse the tinish (yay new word!) quality of the recording.  It's originally recorded as a video on on my MacBook, but I gotta work with what I got!
