about

« One Of A Kind » is the (belated) Club release for April 2020.

essentially written in one day on March 6, 2013, this upbeat folk pop summer song is about meeting someone who turns out to have special significance in one's life, and eventually becoming so close as to form a kind of unit with them.

ultimately, it's also about how every encounter, whether apparently desirable or otherwise, actually contributes to one's growth and to finding one's place in the grand scheme of things.

lyrics

verse 1

i was lonely
you were alone
silent city
no comfort zone
smiles in a faceless fight

one for the song
two for the road
please tag along
we'll share the load
hope in a heartless plight

verse 2

faithful come hell
or high water
under the spell
we're together
birds in a painless flight

if you don't mind
i'll hold your hand
we're gonna find
the promised land
steps at a trackless height

verse 3

this adventure
was no mistake
here's the future
that was at stake
wind in a fearless kite

we're the dreamers
of the big dream
all members of
one winning team
stars in a moonless night

pre-chorus

our worlds collide
no battles of pride
oh don't go
we're good for the ride
across the great divide

unexpected you
you paint my sky blue
you know
i am grateful too
for all you do

chorus

i see you you see me
delightful chemistry
we are one of a kind

i wished you you hoped me
look at you smile at me
no way justice is blind
