IF I DONíT GET YOU, what will I do?
I remember when Iíd never tasted your kissiní,
I recognize I may not have the wealth you could be after.
There's nothing much that I think I could know about the future.
A few months after first leaving Austin I realized I hadn't written a song in quite a while, and the specter of writer's block loomed. While I often go for considerable lengths of time without writing a song and don't worry about it at all, other times terror strikes my songwriter's heart. When I don't worry about it everything works out eventually - when a song shows up. A few times panic has ensued and I've had a song burst forth almost immediately. Though I typically don't write love songs, a few times this process has brought me a song fitting that description. This song is for Lanis, even though I did have her at the time (and still do), and I am way beyond grateful for her presence all these years.
More than any other song I've written, this song seems to get people singing on the chorus once they've heard it a few times, even friends of mine who rarely sing. I get a kick out of that.
