New Lyrics “Untitled”

I was asked to play at my friends’ wedding and they donated to my kickstarter so I wrote them a song as well. (This is the first of a bunch that I’m currently writing.)

It’s half of their story, and half of how I’m currently feeling about love, and wishing/hoping it will be for me.

I played it as their first dance, and mixed in “Sarah’s Song” which is their favorite. I made everyone cry. Suckers.

Love is all you need.

——————

How do you know it’s love,
How do you know it’s real,
I think that it’s mostly trust,
In a promise to never leave.

When everything around me falls,
She’s the one thing that I hold on to,
She’s my candle when the day goes dark,
My sun, my stars, my sky, my moon.

So say my name,
And hold me close
Promise that you’ll never leave,
And I will never, ever, ever let you go

There’s a smile I hold inside my heart,
And it looks an awful lot like hers,
There’s a whisper running through my thoughts,
It’s the sweetest sound I’ve ever heard.

So say my name,
And hold me close
Promise that you’ll never leave,
And I will never, ever, ever let you go.

“When two hearts beat as one…”
I heard a brilliant preacher say,
“…there’s nothing in this world as strong,
As the love that they display.”

So say my name,
And hold me close
Promise that you’ll never leave,
And I will never, ever, ever let you go

About Josh Damigo

Josh will cheerfully admit that he averaged less than a dozen people a show when he first began playing San Diego coffee houses. But he garnered diehard fans in the process, sold a few thousand copies of his homemade EP, Pocket Change, and picked up few awards along the way. After a traumatic family incident, Damigo retreated inward, and he ended up writing what would ultimately become his breakout debut, Raw. The album was true to its name and people noticed - Josh picked up two San Diego Music Awards for “Best Acoustic” and “Best Local Recording,” opened for the likes of Zac Brown, Jason Mraz, Eric Hutchinson, and Matt Nathanson, and had enough money and momentum to tour the country a few times over. A few years after Raw, there was his third release, Hope. Whereas Raw was a mostly acoustic, vulnerable affair, Hope was a celebration. Pleading and poignant, heartfelt and heavy hearted, it segued effortlessly from orchestral to alt-country, eventually landing him in the top 25 on the country charts. One of the hardest working indie singer/songwriters in Southern California, Damigo spent much of year with producer Mike Butler, gathering up some of the finest musicians in town, shaping his songs and sound further still for his latest album, "Just Give Me a Call", available now, on Randm Records. From the up-tempo single, “Just Give Me a Call”, to the simple sincerity of the ballad “Tennessee”, Josh’s songwriting skills are clear, his voice rings true and his goals remain the same as when he started - to keep making the best music he can, and to share it with all.
