The best way to explain this weeks song “Light up the way” is to tell you about the writing process. It was a late enough when I got back from my regular Saturday night show in The Porterhouse and as it usually is the case, I find it hard to sleep for several hours after playing a show. It had been a crazy week to say the least. To pass the time I picked up my guitar in hopes to write a song, but I felt somehow like I was lost for words. I felt like I wanted to say something that would make everybody feel somehow better. I wanted to sing a message of hope, but I was not sure if it was in me.
You might think that these are just the daily struggles of a songwriter, but this was more than that. I had an urgent need to do something, but I just could not put it into words…
Brick walls like these are not unfamiliar to me as a songwriter, so I resorted to the last trick I had up my sleeve. I wrote a song about that situation, the confusion, the divide between people and most of all how I think life will go on. It is the love that will light up the way in times like these.
