    This track can be free if you'd like, but I fund all this music out of my own pocket and would really appreciate some compensation. All funds will go directly into buying more gear and making more music.

This track was inspired by the work of Brenda Lyons, a superb watercolor artist with a flair for fantasy. Her piece of art (which I named this song after) instantly became one of my favorites. It features a blank, white background. Set against it are two gryphons holding talons and in between them is the place only they can see - beautiful and powerful imagery.

After I first saw this art, I thought of a fun chord progression that conveyed the same joy I received from the painting. I worked on this song for an entire summer and am immensely pleased to see how it grew up.

You can view Brenda's original painting as well as her wonderful gallery of artwork here:

Our world - a place only we can see,
It's a place just for you and me,
A dream-scape, with sunlight above the sky,
So spread your wings, take a breath and fly.

Our home, with mountains and leafy trees,
Watch the treetops beneath the breeze,
Look around, and I'll take you anywhere,
And I'll be with you 'cause we're a pair.

My day, is bright 'cause you're at my side,
Set your heart to the tune and glide,
Our time - and I'll spend it all with you,
And we'll set sail, the whole day through,
Just me and you.

Our world - with sailboats and whitecap doors,
Full of carpets and ocean floors,
Say hello to starfish and ocean eve,
So we'll swim on and we'll never leave.

Our coast - with sunsets and banks of sand,
We'll swim on as you hold my hand,
Swim below the ships anchored to the moors,
Remember you are mine and I am yours




(Our world) 4x
Just me and you.
