TUNE Folkstar - Grow
"Grow" is the result of a writing exercise of sorts, in which I decided to write a simple but real love song. I used the metaphor of plants and nature not just because flowers are so often associated with love, but also because the process of growth involves elements that are often considered to be less than ideal. Rain contributes to growth, even as it can batter the fragile exterior of a flower. Growing is rarely painless but is ultimately rewarding. I wanted to convey that relationships are strongest when we embrace and survive the storms rather than cower from the elements.
