I had my last pint of guinness with David Matheson in a bar not far from wherever it was we did that ridiculous CMT christmas special back in 2011. The band was performing my "Merry Christmas Everyone" and we called Dave in on piano as a hired gun. It was the first time I'd seen him since the previous fall when I'd shown up late and drunk at his house to record said yuletide masterpiece with 2 cases of beer under my arms and absolutely no excuse. He took it all in stride and even fed me some spaghetti so I wouldn't get too fall downsey. He is a man you don't meet everyday. 

While we were drinking our Christmas pints, I intimated that I had a feeling things in general had the potential to go very badly if drastic action were not soon taken. I was still hungover from the night before and probably experiencing a mild anxiety attack but David agreed with my assessment and seemed to understand exactly where I was coming from. 

As soon as we were back on set we started to write this song and it continues to give me great reassurance.

lyrics

I lost my way 
when i was looking for a brighter day 
i've seen the end 
now i'm ready to start again 
see the sun up in the sky 
and it makes me feel like flying 

a new day begins 
a spoon clinking in a coffee tin 
head out my door 
another day just like the one before 
but my eyes can clearly see 
that forever more i will be 

heading for the light 
where everything's alright 
and nobody's lonely 
or feeling lost 
i'm heading for the light 
ain't gonna throw this fight 
if u be my one and only 
my one more one and only 

I took my time 
I was happy to stand in line 
i let you go 
for a ticket to an empty show 
See the Sun up in the sky 
Soon we will be shining 

we're heading for the light 
where everything's allright 
and nobody's lonely 
or feeling lost 
we're heading for the light 
we're gonna win this fight 
if you'll be my one and only 
my one more one and only 

and i 
am not afraid to try 
and you 
you're the reason why 

please be my 
one more one and only 
my one more one and only 
my one more one and only 

i'm heading for the light….
