I’m so stuck on the fact that “If I Could Fly” and “Home” were written on different sides of the world, the longest they’d been physically separated, with other people cowriting and they’re so complementary. Not just thematically but you can form all sorts of call and response conversations:
I was stumbling
Looking in the dark
I’ve been going out of my mind
But you say, you feel the same
I feel it, I feel it
Know that I’m just wasting time,
and I hope that you don’t run from me.
Could we ever be enough?
Baby, we could be enough
When you’re lonely and forget who you are,
When you’re lost,
I’ll find the way, I’ll be your light
For your eyes only, I showed you my heart
It was there, I saw it in your eyes
I’m missing half of me when we’re apart
You’ll never feel like you’re alone
I can feel your heart inside of mine
I’ll make this feel like home
They didn’t write these together. When they sit down to write a song about their deepest love, their one and only, who they’re currently apart from and want to call out to… this is what happens.
