Phew – i’ve finally written an interstellar love song. When i watch movies, they’re usually either Sci-fi or Horror based about 90% of the time – with that in mind, it’s no surprise that i have fictional dreams of connections with aliens. But really, this idea came from a dream i had that i heavily embellished post-wakeup. I hadn’t covered something like it for 365 at that point so it was an instant winner on a lyrical front. I don’t know why, but it reminds me of something i’d hear sung around a campfire – it just has that bare-bones vibe. This likely stems from the fact i recorded this live and then overdubbed some backing vocals. I wrestled with myself whether to call this ‘One in a Million’ or ‘Lightyears’ but ultimately went with the former because it forms the crux of the chorus – personally, i’m still torn! A simple campfire song for your ears.
