Lulu made a special request that I send a love song to her (shipping) partner Leon. I privately asked her about their relationship, and she told me about their love and how important it is to her. I included many of the unique details she shared in these lyrics (i.e. she calls him her Lion, and he sends her orchids), but I also managed to write a song that could mean something to any two lovers. Leon, I hope you feel how much Lulu cares about you when you listen to this. I greatly enjoyed being a digital singing telegram, so if anyone else wants to use me to send a personal, musical message to someone else, just ask. Enjoy, friends! — K.C.
A Pride of Two
We’ve both been on journeys, winding and long.
We made it through, and now we’re in each other’s arms.
The past was dark, but the future’s bright, and I think we might
be strong enough to build a bond that lasts.
Your my lion, we’re a pride of two,
and I’m proud of all we do
as King and Queen of our jungle.
You know more about love, and all it’s moving parts.
My heart is a glass bowl: fragile, but it holds
so much of you, so much of us, please don’t ever let it drop
cause I would break without the warmth of your hands.
And you know just what I like:
you bring me orchids and whisper in my ear all night.
And you know who I am, and who I can be,
and I know I can do anything if you’re beside me.
