about

With the birth of my daughter Jenna, I began working on a number of songs related to her, which expanded a couple of years later to include her sister, Natalie. I originally had this massive concept album dreamed up for both of them, but the idea died away as I tried to limit my songwriting an effort to catch up with recording.

This song is a simple claw-hammer style picking which I liked mucking around with around the time of Jenna's birth. The lyric 'hello eyes, hello world' were my first words to her when she was born and readily became a song when I first decided to make one. I recorded this while at home one day with Jenna, her impromptu vocal track while she was one-and-a-half is a highlight for me.

lyrics

Hello eyes, hello world
Welcome to life
You are the little girl that I’ve always wanted
I’ve known your name for so, so long
First times, first moments
Welcome to life
