Story

I almost sold my electric guitar in 2018. Instead, it came with me on the ferry and over the Tasman Sea. I uprooted my life to study and set sail on some new adventures. This song was recorded on a Strawberry Full Moon (28 June 2018), along with another song in a day's session. Recently tidied up some of the engineering.

Originally written in 2012 on a dare from my bandmates in The Manuka Hunnies, who were teasing me about not learning barre chords. So I wrote a song with a Bm oozing all over it. 'How Do You Make A Great Love?' is a song about dignity and transformation even in times that might be challenging..be they Tempest storms, natural disasters or otherwise.

Lyrics

How Do You Make A Great Love? (2012 Diaz)

How do you make a great love, a great love?

How do you make it great?

How do you keep things flowing like the calmest seas?

Keep The Tempest away?

-

Ch:

Why do we make it harder than it has to be?

Why do we make it harder?

Oh, we can keep our dignity, our sanity?

Yeah, there's a way to be, just be.

--

I used to think I walked upon solid ground

until the walls came down.

Structures I used to know , called my own

crumbled fast, leaving ruins in my path.

-

Ch:

Why do we make it harder than it has to be?

Why do we make it harder?

Oh, we can keep our dignity, our sanity?

Yeah, there's a way to be, just be.

-

Bridge:

Here's my tabula rasa

of growth possibilities -

A different kind of lightness

washing over me.
