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.
I always wanted to try arranging for something a bit bigger than just a standard rock band, and this song quickly became something of that sort. The song in my head seemed to take on a sort of big-band feel so the track needed to sound like that in some way. I recorded most of the song using the garageband instruments, whilst listening to a truck load of Johnny Mathis in order to try prepare it. This song, written for my youngest, Natalie, is a small, cute song (much like her) and tells the wonderful story of how God introduced me to her before she was born, one of my most special moments.
Little girl swinging away on a swing
You could be the cutest girl ever been!
Did you know that the God above, well He introduced me to you?
From before you were born, you were loved
