Release Date: December 20, 2011
If “You And Me” by Lifehouse collided with a Howie Day song you would get my rocking new love song single.
Once again I’ve teamed up with my good friend and producer/musician extraordinaire, Nick Garrett-Powell, to deliver a new anthemic love song. “Stop the Sun” is the new single from the highly anticipated CD, “White”, due out Fall of 2012. I wrote this song shortly before Christmas 2009 as a 1st Anniversary present for my wife, Jessica.
For it seems just a glance over my shoulder when we met
But somehow a year’s flown by since the day when we were wed
Oh we’ve laughed and we’ve cried
Seen both struggles, blessings alike
I thank God for you my wife
We originally recorded the song on December 23rd and Nick added some synthesized drums and other parts to get the song ready in a single day to be given as a surprise to her on Christmas Eve, 2009. Since that time live drums, harmonies and other tracks have been added to arrive at the single you hear now.
This song speaks of wishing to be able to hold onto the special moments we have that seem fleeting. The lyrics express the wish that we could freeze time or somehow learn to “stop the sun”, like Joshua prayed and asked God to do for the Israelites.
The days have come and they have gone
Wish I’d faith like Joshua to stop the sun
A moment frozen in time
Where I could be yours and you’d be mine
This song will be featured on the upcoming full-length release, “White”, but you can enjoy it now as a preview single! Fans of Lifehouse, OneRepublic and The Script should especially enjoy this rock-inspired love ballad.
