The Making Of

Music and Rhyme

The lyrics for Music and Rhyme got birth during a writing week in the middle of nowhere were we disconnected ourselves from Wifi or even phone signal in a little house on the mountains of Laboule, Ardeche in the South of France.

Renegato, lyrics Music and Rhyme, Sound of Lighthouse

The weather helped us a lot because it was overal cold and rainy and the house was almost daily covered in fog, apart from one day. There were literaly NO distraction but to put logs on the fire and to write new songs and so we did 😉

A couple of months later Josie was invited to meet Ronald Vanhuffel, a wellknown producer in Belgium and the Netherlands. She recorded some songs among them Music and Rhyme.

Some time later Ronald send us the song as a present. He had felt inspired by the lyrics and melody and created a beautiful arrangement in which he played drums, guitar and synths himself.

Lyrics

You draw a picture without paint
You turn the winter into spring
You see the world without constraint
You are the words I want to sing

You sculpt a statue without clay
You make the seasons get along
You let the rhythm find its way
You are the music to my song

[chorus]
Together we feel like whole
You are the feather of my wings
Without and within you
You are my heart and soul
Commitment without rings
We’re connected as we are one when we are two
One when we are two

I sense the clouds in all your skies
I feel what you have got to say
I see the stories in your eyes
You’re the voice that leads the way

I find your universe complete
I hear the beauty in your play
I feel music in your heartbeat
Your rhythm will never fade away

[chorus]
Together we feel like whole
You are the feather of my wings
Without and within you
You are my heart and soul
Commitment without rings
We are connected as we are one when we are two
One when we are two
One when we are two
One when we are two

[bridge]
I cannot see without ya
I cannot hear without ya
I feel you all the time
Rhythm and rhyme
I cannot see without ya
I cannot hear without ya
Cause we are one when we are two

[chorus]
Together we feel like whole
You are the feather of my wings
Without and within you
You are my heart and soul
Commitment without rings
We are connected as we are one when we are two

I cannot see without ya
I cannot hear without ya
I feel you all the time
Rhythm and rhyme
