about

BACK IN 2016, ALEXANDER AND I RECORDED 30 SECONDS OF THE CHORUS OF THIS SONG FOR CATHRINES BIRTHDAY. WE PLAYED IT FOR HER, BRINGING ON THE SMILES!
THIS YEAR, I DECIDED TO WRITE A FULL SONG AROUND THE MAIN LYRIC WHICH WAS "OUR LOVE FOR YOU IS THIS BIG".
I ASKED ALEXANDER IF HE WAS DOWN TO RECORD IT. HE WAS EVEN THOUGH HE EXPRESSED SOME CONCERN THAT HIS VOICE HAD CHANGED. HE WAS 10 WHEN HE SANG THE LINE FOR THE FIRST TIME. AT 14, HE STILL NAILED IT.
WE DID IT AS A DUET, SHARING HARMONIES IN THE CHORUS'.
THE END RESULT IS WHAT YOU HEAR RIGHT HERE.

IT WAS AN EXTRAORDINARY FEELING OF FULL ON JOY RECORDING THIS TUNE WITH MY SON!
ONE HAPPY DAD MOMENT FOR SURE!

A BIG POWER CHORD OF GRATITUDE GOES OUT TO MY SPECIAL GUEST NEAL WALTER ON ALL GUITARS AND BASS FOR THIS ONE!

SO HERE GOES, A POWER POP GEM FOR YOUR EARS FILLED WITH LOVE.
ENJOY!

lyrics

THIS BIG LOVE

MY LOVE FOR YOU IS THIS BIG
MY LOVE FOR YOU IS THIS BIG
OUR LOVE FOR YOU IS THIS BIG
YEAH, YEAH-

AS BIG AS THE OCEAN
AS BIG AS OUTER SPACE
THAT HOLDS THE UNIVERSE
AND YOUR SMILING FACE
YOU'RE LIKE THE SUNRISE
THAT BRINGS US LIGHT
AND LIKE THE FULL MOON RISE
ON A HAPPY SUMMER NIGHT!

OUR LOVE FOR YOU IS THIS BIG (X3)
YEAH, YEAH-

AS TALL AS MT OLYMPUS AND THE FAMILIA SAGRADA
AS LONG AS THE NEW YORK SKYLINE-
HIGHLINE, HIGHLINE, HIGHLINE
AS WIDE AS THE MILKY WAY
TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY
YEAH, YEAH, YEAH! YEAH!
MAKE A WISH!!

(SOLO)

MY LOVE FOR YOU IS THIS BIG
MY LOVE FOR YOU IS THIS BIG
OUR LOVE FOR YOU IS THIS BIG
OUR LOVE FOR YOU IS THIS BIG
OUR LOVE FOR YOU-
THIS BIG
OUR LOVE FOR YOU-
THIS BIG
OUR LOVE FOR YOU-
THIS BIG
OUR LOVE FOR YOU IS THIS BIG
OUR LOVE FOR YOU IS THIS BIG
YEAH, YEAH-
