[Diann’s Take] This one tugs at my heart. It was our anniversary and Mitch and I were talking about how we first met. He told me that he was so overwhelmed with a flood of feelings when he first saw me and that even years later he still feels the same way. I told him I remembered feeling like it was just like a tidal wave between us and the idea was born.
[Mitch’s Take] We wrote the lyrics to the chorus in about 30 minutes; they just flowed once Diann said it’s like a tidal wave of emotions. I remember we took about 20 minutes to just free-form describe all the images, feelings, etc. of a tidal wave. Once we finished, we had a rich two-pages of images to work with. At that point, it was easy to finish the chorus.
