I wanted to write a song for the girls to sing for our friends Kylie and Wayne who are getting married on the beach in Fiji in a couple of weeks time.
Contemplating playing it live, unplugged on the beach.
I borrowed a couple of lines from Snowflakes “Reflection” as a starting point and wrote the rest against Paul’s nice acoustic guitar.
Recorded the girls separately. Their timing and blend is uncanny - each sung it blind, not hearing each other - just relying on a couple of listens of my crusty guide vocal.

Quite challenging writing a wedding song that doesn’t sink in corny cliches.
Hope I avoided most of them.

Perfect Circle

I say these words to you
this perfect afternoon
and feel the way
Ive never felt before my love

a perfect circle round your finger too
from the moment that I met you
I have felt it true

Winter is behind us
palm trees swaying by us
just say the word
and ill be yours for good my love

a perfect circle round your finger
a diamond that was once a stone
you’ll find a perfect circle round my heart (you know)
a perfect circle round your finger
to say these words I love you so
you’ll find a perfect circle round my heart


take me by the hand
and write our names deep in the sand
and share with us
this special day with friends
my love

Winter is behind us
palm trees swaying by us
just say the word
and ill be yours for good my love

a perfect circle round your finger
a diamond that was once a stone
you’ll find a perfect circle round my heart (you know)
a perfect circle round your finger
to say these words I love you so
you’ll find a perfect circle round my heart
