Drop of Water

Performer: Jenny Ray
Writers: Jenny Ray/Jerry Silverstein


"Love can start with one beat of the heart

Like an ocean from a drop of water"

What I liked about this song was that it went from the general to the specific. After Jenny and I wrote the first verse that made a "philosophical statement," we shifted directly to a specific moment and added the "furniture" that the first verse was lacking. Hopefully the shift makes sense and listeners can connect the two.

"Just another cold December night

Roaming downtown streets with you

Though I've walked by your side a million times

Something about this night felt new"

We wrote this song for Jenny's voice, and when she sings it (beautifully, I might add) you're transported and placed in that moment.
