In 2012 I took a songwriting course led by John Vallins in Bellingen, NSW. During the course we were assigned the task of writing a song around a prompt supplied by John. The prompt that generated this song was “Love Lies Bleeding”.
After the course finished John took some initial recordings done at the time and turned them into this song.
Contrary to popular belief, this isn’t a song about a child or a lover. This is a song about the the stages a relationship goes through over time.
