This song is dedicated to Ben, a friend of ours who passed away recently.
The song was written by Jia, it was a very amazing experience to finally be collaborating as well as co-writing a song with her as she is one of my idols and someone who I really look up to and admire as a musician.
Jia based this song on the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice. This is the song they sing on their final parting--I will sing you home:
(Orpheus) My love, the darkness hides your face and I can't see your smile, your arms that once were held out for me
My love, I sing this song to call you home with me don't leave me here to sing this song alone My love, I need you--can't you hear me calling, hear me calling you home again
And I will sing you home I will sing you home with me I will sing you home I will sing you home with me
(Eurydice) My love, when you sing this song you'll think of me you will think of me, and I'll be there by your side When you sing this song, I'll be there holding your hand and singing this song with you
And I will sing you home I will sing you home I will sing you home I will sing you home with me
