Our song this week is written by sublime songstress and long time Songs on Sunday collaborator, Shannon Fayth. Shannon’s offerings to our sessions have always been some of the highlights and this track is no exception
Shannon has perfectly crafted this song in a way which showcases her incredible, soulful voice, supported by a deep deep groove supplied by our talented instrumental collaborators. THIS is what this project is all about.
This song was first inspired by my best friend moving to California. I was a bit devastated. When it comes to friendship once I’m in that’s it, I’m in. The verses are about past conflict and learning what being a good friend is all about, the pre-choruses are about my good friend moving, and the choruses are about knowing that no matter how far away, or how long the time lapses, it doesn’t really matter; if there is love, then there always will be. I guess I just missed my friend so I wrote a song, to put it simply.
