Lyrics
Less than three she types to me from some Starbucks in Savannah
A thousand miles away and yet so very close inside.
I type back, it looks like rain and she plays Pollyanna
Warming up the world around me. She helps me take it all in stride.

A dozen times a day I mail her post cards in my mind
For a man who's been so careful, I just can't stop flying blind
I question everything but that just leaves me wanting more
If it's a sickness, I'm not looking for a cure.

I know you think I'm crazy saying this is meant to be
But all that I can tell you is that she's my less than three

Sure, I could play the cynic. Could throw it down the track.
You think I'm flirting with the third rail. Got a monkey on my back
But you have never heard the way she laughs when she's afraid
It's like a vesper, Some sweet southern serenade.

And I know you think I'm crazy saying this is meant to be
But all that I can tell you is that she's my less than three

Technology and time give about the same they steal.
If it's not right beside us, does that mean it isn't real
I may not have the answers but I know the way I feel.

I know you think I'm crazy saying this is meant to be
But all that I can tell you is that she's my less than three.

A vesper
I love the line "But you have never heard the way she laughs when she's afraid." I enjoyed the fresh lines couched between the ordinary cliches, which is a perfect rhythm for the message. Hey, are you working on a new album? Is this a demo or a finished track?

Great to hear you sharing on MJ again.

This has...
...some really crisp and clean guitar playing, phrased really nicely... You have really great time...

The lyrics are both light and sophisticated... I'd never heard the 'less than 3' thing before, and now I'll probably see it everywhere...

A Soothing Original...
Very nice relaxing song. I don't know if it was meant to be, but there seemed to be hints of Hawaiian style slack key...
