about

"Some tight Hammond B-3 fills give life to “How Beautiful,” the track a slow builder that ends in rousing finish, Cogswell trading vocals with his backing vocalists as the organ riffs with abandon, making this one of the album’s must-listen tracks." Andrew Greenhalgh music writer

lyrics

there might not be a way i can describe it
a way to say how beautiful & wonderful you are
and a way to tell you how much i love you

i look at this part & that, glide my eyes from your head to your toes
and all the amazing places between
i trust you know what i mean
breath with me & i breath with you
and the lines between what's you & what's me, fade away
and this subtly wonderful feeling pervades
oneness with you, oneness with all creation

that's why i have a silent stare
but i know, somehow, thru the silence, the words come thru
and you hear, the feeling, of just how much i love you
and how, beautiful i think you are...

and it's not just your gorgeousness, in the physical
but your spirit, your mind, you ways
all of you, inside & out that i love
sometimes, in moments like these,
all i can do is sit & adore you
hopefully this gets across my appreciation

that's why i have a silent stare
but i know, somehow, thru the silence, the words come thru
and you hear, the feeling, of just how much i love you
and how, beautiful i think you are...

you're so beautiful, you're so wonderful.
you are, so amazing in every way.

about

Stephen Cogswell San Francisco, California

Stephen Cogswell is a remarkable singer and songwriter with a knack for creating island beats and breezy tunes that are not too unlike music by Xavier Rudd, Dave Matthews, Jack Johnson, and even Darius Rucker. The vocals are strong, poetic, and earthy throughout. If a beach had a soundtrack: Floating would be the answer.
