One day, I was sitting on a bench, in the garden of a house in LA, where I was pursuing my music career, writing a song on my guitar. My housemate walked past me on his way out and asked about the song and I said “I’m just noodling, writing a song, it has a lot of energy and it just came to me”. As he left he said “I hope it brings you all you want in life”. The song is about freedom, personal freedom. And, it turns out later, I wrote it on the day my divorce became final. I didn’t realize it, because it was a Sunday, and we had filed the papers six months earlier. Funny how life speaks to, and through, us, isn’t it?
