Lyrics

like a day
another song away
let me down
like i knew my way
don't take me there
i'm gonna see you here
baby i'm going there

i see it now more than ever before
a light at your door
so come with me
i'm gonna show you things
things that you never see

so come on

i take you there
i take you anywhere
i take you there
i take you anywhere

soooo come with me to this special
special spot of my own
it's inside baby
where no one knows
i'm gonna see you sometime
but let me know
'cause, my vacancy sign's open
but not for long

The story behind this song illustrates the energy that once existed between "Going to Austin" band members in the early '00s. Marshall wrote the music and spent the better part of a day tracking out the various pieces of the song. It was a dark and lonely time in his life, and the music was flowing that day. When he was finished and had a decent mix on the board, Aaron showed up and asked what he was working on. Marshall handed him the headphones and after one listen, Aaron said "get me a mic, I need to sing on this." We plugged him in and hit record, and he performed the vocals you hear on this final version. It was an incredible moment, Marshall's heartfelt music had inspired Aaron to sing lyrics that fit the mood and feeling behind the song with such perfection, there was little to add after that. We never did another take, and in order to learn the actual lyrics that had come out of Aaron's mouth in that moment, we had to listen to the recording and write them down. The final addition to this piece was the percussion, which was created using a copper chain bracelet that was custom made for Marshall in the mid 90s by a truly artistic man in Boise, Idaho (who's name has unfortunately been forgotten -- though it might have been Chris).
