about

This song has AMAZING piano parts by my friend Meher Steinberg who, I love dearly. Listen to his bits all though the song. So good!!

OK, the story behind this is pretty introspective.

I spent a lot of time in 2012 working on calling out and owning my fears about the type of relationship I wanted in my life. To get some perspective I created two characters with that I could look at and consider.

The guy is a more obvious version of me (less sensitive of course haha) and the girl is someone I fell in love with recently who really knows who she wants to be in the world. In reality however they are the two sides of my own feelings.

Singing this song I can feel both characters struggle- him to get over himself and her to be patient. It reminds me to pay attention and do the work.

lyrics

Something Right (Gladstone & Girio)

There’s something about a beer with the boys at the bar
With your hat on the table and your hand on your heart
There’s something to be said for a brand new start
He always falls apart when it gets too dark

He’s the kind of guy that likes to be right
A fear of missing out, wound too tight
He’s the kind of guy that gets in fights
Another pint of stout to dim the light

There’s something about walking late at night
With stars in the sky and the moon just right
There’s something to be said for a day gone right
She never falls apart unless she’s forced to fight

She’s the kind of girl that sleeps at night
Loves to do her job, and make things right
She’s the kind of girl that says all right
She's never been afraid, to live her life

Bridge

There’s something about the things they talk and hear
Hoping that the other one will quell the fears
There’s something just good about being here
They hope to get together when the air is clear

He’s the kind of guy that likes to be right
A fear of missing out, wound too tight
She’s the kind of girl that sleeps at night
She's never been afraid, to live her life

He’s the kind of guy that likes to be right
A fear of missing out, wound too tight
She’s the kind of girl that sleeps at night
She's never been afraid, to live her life
