Andy May - Room for Roots

Stone Soup from Hard Times

© Lyrics: Lauren LeCroy MayMusic: Andy May (Swift River Music/BMI)
Lauren:  This lyric actually combines two trains of thought I had been entertaining when I wrote it. It started with the thought that even when you’re broke, you can enjoy a beautiful day as much as anyone. That got me thinking of other things that enrich our lives yet cost us nothing: Relationships, memories, sunshine, singing, dreams….  (more)   Andy:  I loved the lyric that Lauren came up with for this song from the first time that I read it. To me, it talked about the challenges and triumphs that we all face in relationships, and the importance of remembering that many of the things we have in our lives don’t cost a thing and yet are priceless. That is what I had in mind when I set out to write the music for this piece.  (… more, credits, lyrics)
