Hello, good morning, how you do?
What makes your rising sun so new?
I could use a fresh beginning too
All of my regrets are nothing new
So this is the way that I say I need You
This is the way that I’m

Learning to breathe
I’m learning to crawl
I’m finding that You and You alone can break my fall
I’m living again, awake and alive
I’m dying to breathe in these abundant skies

Hello, good morning, how you been?
Yesterday left my head kicked in
I never, never thought that
I would fall like that
Never knew that I could hurt this bad

So this is the way I say I need You
This is the way that I say I love You
This is the way that I say I’m Yours
This is the way, this is the way

    I like the way the shadows seem to tell a different story.

  • Thanks for noticing mate! My work is very layered and symbolic :)

    i love how the art so beautifully matches the song – i don’t know how it does but it seems to capture the feeling.

  • if you go to and find a clip with that song while looking at the artwork its even more impactful :) im glad you felt it!
