Anywhere With You
I’ve said a few times before that this might be the best song I’ve written so far. It’s simple, it’s sweet, and, without wanting to sound like I love myself, I even get goosebumps most times I listen to it. I think the concepts I’ve written about in Anywhere With You will be familiar to many people and it’s my hope that it resonates with listeners.
Anywhere With You is a direct sequel to Burning Bridges, and while I wrote it with a lyrical reference to that song in the final line – “And I’ve burned all these bridges, but maybe I can find another way” – as the track came together I was inspired to take that idea a little further. With a slight adjustment to the melody of the chorus from Burning Bridges, I found that I could sing it in the background of the final chorus in Anywhere With You. The result is a triumphant and powerful climax to the song, and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. It ties together the stories I’m telling with these two songs perfectly, and helps round out the album as we approach the final track.
