about

This song came from a dream that I had where I was running along a beach with my fiancée flying a classic, red, rhombus-shaped kite that you'd expect to see in a cartoon. I always imagined it as the kind of song you'd sing around a campfire at night so its fades out to the sound of crickets and crackling flames - a peaceful conclusion to the album.

lyrics

The kite it caught the wind
And swept us up into the sky
The fright coursed through our veins
But we felt no shame that we could fly

The sand between our toes
As we comb the shore alone at night
Your hand enclosed in mine
But its your soul that holds me tight

We don’t need others round
Its just for us
There’s wonder to be found
In only simple love

The kite its perched above
And all the world is in its sight
The breeze blows in its wings
And with talons strong it takes to flight

We have not rested our heads in weeks
And our souls have not yet grown weak
I know my promise to you I’ll keep
Because we’re free, we are free
