about

As a co-founder of The SongStream Project, I had the privilege of spending time with four incredible young people and their families for our show Voices of Autism. The show explores the power of music in the lives of these young adults and their families and how it has helped them share their unique gifts with the world. I was moved by the beauty of their lives and the journeys they've taken. This song was inspired by the stories and music they shared with us.

lyrics

I have been thinking about you
The way you see the world in all its many hues
And the way you bring me out of me
There's a beauty in this hidden mystery

And I've come to love the minor keys
They are the rain that makes the hills so green
And longer is better it seems when it comes to you and me
Gives me time to see
The unexpected ways your joy is changing me

I remember when we got the letter for the first time
I knew our lives would be intertwined
Because you were meant for me
You are here to help me see

And I've come to love the minor keys
They are the rain that makes the hills so green
And longer is better it seems when it comes to you and me
Gives me time to see
The unexpected ways your joy is changing me
