I've had the privilege of going to Japan twice now. This song stems from a small experience I had at the bullet train subway. Now I feel the need to mention how Japan only seems to play music I enjoy which is something quite special in and of itself. Think of any sort of establishment or scenery and you know every song, current or not that’s being played. It’s truly amazing!
Whilst waiting for a steamy bun order I heard this fantastic snippet of joyful music being played faintly above. I suddenly start humming something in the same vein but different notes etc. It's kind of like a baseline in my head (turns out to be the melody of the chorus) that I keep running over to not forget it. Fast forward a week or two, now in Keswick, I ask Matt to help me write it and we complete it rather quickly. It’s the second song about this one particular girl I’ve yet to meet in person.
