Song Stories: Merry Go Round

Song Stories: Merry Go Round

I threw everything into the fire after I got burned.  But I kept two of the love songs I had written for her.  “Raw Diamond Ring” and this one.  The songs were just too powerful and the melodies felt too good to let go of.  There’s a certain freedom you feel when you’re certain you’ve found that person.  YOUR person.  As a songwriter, I’m lucky to be able to channel those thoughts and feelings into music.  It’s the best way for me to say what’s boiling over on the inside.  Regardless of the fallout, I don’t regret this one.  My hope is that it will become an anthem for someone else.  That’s always a huge honor.
