SONG DESCRIPTION:

This is a straight up love song to a child. One of the most profound emotions you experience with a newborn is this sense that every day you wake up to a secret that you just can't wait to share with everyone. You get to know this new little person in such a vulnerable and pristine state, and in such a physically intimate way, that you just want the whole world to get to experience that same world-changing beauty with you.

LYRICS TO "JUST WAIT TIL THEY SEE YOU"

It’s mid-September but it smells like spring
It smells like spring, yes it smells like spring
It’s mid-September but it smells like spring
Like the ink is hardly dry

The world stops spinning while the baby sleeps
The baby sleeps, while the baby sleeps
The world stops spinning while the baby sleeps
And the angels knit their wings

Her lips keep moving but she makes no sound
She makes no sound, no she makes no sound
Her lips keep moving but she makes no sound
She’s got so much left to say

She holds my finger like I hold my tongue
I hold my tongue, like I hold my tongue
She’s holds my finger like I hold my tongue
As if we don’t have to share

I’ve seen the redwoods and the northern lights
The northern lights, yes the northern lights
I’ve seen the redwoods and the northern lights
Well just wait til they see you
Just wait til they see you
