I wrote this for Jordan Smith's amazing voice while driving my old pickup to Langley in late March 2017. Got home - with no hint of an associated melody - and played three notes on my piano. Evidently the melody had been waiting for me and it spilled forth unimpeded. Although it was written for Jordan, it's my way of standing apart from Donald Trump and acknowledging Michelle Obama, the inspirational source of the lyric. She told her kids, "you go high when they go low." Donny is incapable of making such distinctions. I wish Jordan could have a chance to hear it.
