Creative Brief

Early stage idea - Inspired by a lady I know via twitter who is having to get on with life after her husband (a farmer) committed suicide at Christmas.

I recorded it really quickly today as a guide thinking it needed a relaxed female country style vocal (not my uptight, male, British style!).

Then by chance this afternoon I heard 'July' by Noha Cyrus and I think that style and sound could fit the track nicely - really stripped back, lo-fi country.

Possibly with Cello or violin for a bit of interest. 

Really open to ideas on this - could even have another verse if someone felt inspired, and there's a few words that could be tweaked to make it clearer.


Please let me know if you like the idea of are interested to collaborate and I can gladly provide seps of what I have - or a better guide track (There's a few timing quirks in this, though most phrases end neatly).


Lyrics - 


It’s the little things that grow your wings 

It’s the little things that grow your wings 



Frst time fixing tools you always did

Now your not here it seems I knew so much I hid

Every day you fly a little further away

They say this one will be a better day


26 years compressed into a few hundred words

written by an officer sat amongst piles of your shirts

For you I must recall it all over again

but your full stop avoided you the pain



I’m not bitter, numb or mad 

Just crying for the times we never had

They weren’t enough to keep you here

Too much to bare,  but not enough to fear


CHORUS _______________________________

It’s the little things that grow your wings 

It’s the little things that grow your wings 

I’ll be right and carry on you’ll see

But you’ll not wear a halo for jumping on me

It’s the little things that grow your wings 

It’s the little things that grow your wings 



Looked out the window early today 

Saw a little Bird lifted up and away

Life goes on or so they say

But you’ve  left me sinking feeling like I’m falling



there’s plenty of tears I should shed,

but I’m not one for crying in my bed.  

but when I’m here all  alone

you could of called someone, anyone  you know
