Album Song Stories: The Right Lines
Ah, The Right Lines, a love song to end the album with!
The Right Lines was again written quite a while back. It is about the words we use, our language and how we communicate love to one another. It’s about a relationship that never finds it difficult to say exactly how they feel and in fact finds endless ways of describing the love they share when some other people search for the ‘right’ thing to say.
It’s about falling in love, staying in love, being honest and never having the struggle to express love.
I loved recording this song. Especially layering all the backing vocals, of which there was a bit of a choir of me! And the warm brass made it feel like Christmas. It was much like Battlefield, we just managed to create exactly the feeling musically of what the song expressed lyrically. This song to me always feels like a warm hug 🙂
It’s a simple song!

The Right Lines
Music and Lyrics Shelly Quarmby
Some people spend hours trying to find
The right words to make the right lines
I’ve spent days with an endless list
Of the memories of our first kiss
You draw me in
You make me smile
First we laugh
Then we sigh
I’ll never be tired of your touch
Your passion for me and the things I love
You’re my grounding my warm hand and heart
You never falter and you’re always strong
You give me that look
When I’m feeling down
I need you
To always be around
With you I’ll wake up every day
Feeling beautiful refreshed in every way
The honesty, truth in our lives
Will always help me
Find, the right lines.
