Dawning On Me - digital download
Another sun metaphor wrapped around a relationship song, this one more matured but still dazzled by the beauty of it all. Nothing more beautiful than waking up to a gorgeous day with a sweet, dream-formed melody ringing in your ear.
Haven't Got a Clue - digital download
I had a vivid dream of John Lennon singing the opening verse of this song, which I immediately got down on waking, and added the rest (in the throes of a current crush – source of so many songs).
