about

I took a minute to write this song. The slang minute, not the literal minute. Once I sat down and committed to it, it did come quickly. Jeff Crerie (engineer, vegetarian and songwriter) and I sat down together with a drum loop and carved this one out. The melody came to me immediately along with a bass line. I went away to write the lyrics. Put them under the bed, toured as a background singer for several months, forgot them for a while, remembered them and then went back to Jeff to finish/weak them together. I recorded Silencio live with the band a few different ways, then went back to Jeff again to put it all together and record the vocals. I then took it to my friend and engineer Thomas Hornig (cat lover and master ice cream maker) to give it a little more love. The song is about love which can be at once strong, yet held together by intangibles.

lyrics

Silencio (Ford, Crerie)

It is the blue behind an April cloudy sky
It’s the trust that makes us never question why
The gentle whispering wind between the leaves
Inspires the flower to blossom faithfully though sunlight can't be seen

Feel the silencio between you and me
The dance between the dreamer and the dream
Silencio between you and me
Your tender breath beneath the melody that's making my heart sing

Oh, oh…

It is the hope on which all best intentions lie
It's the twinkle in the darkest midnight sky
The force that brings all life from seed to green
Sweet soul that stirs the sun to dawn
And shakes me from my sleep

Silencio between you and me
The dance between the dreamer and the dream
Silencio between you and me
Your tender breath beneath the melody that's making my heart sing

Oh, oh…

Trumpet Solo

Silencio between you and me
The dance between the dreamer and the dream
Silencio between you and me
Your tender breath beneath the melody that's making my heart sing

Silencio between you and me
The dance between the dreamer and the dream
Silencio between you and me
Your tender breath beneath the melody that's making my heart sing

Oh, oh...
