About the Song – The first single of the forthcoming Wonder EP appropriately arrives before Mother’s Day. Backed by gentle strumming, handclaps, and boisterous harmonica, it culminates on the chant, “I got love mama, because of you”—lifted to the heavens via the voices of 50 fans from around the globe. “It’s a dedication to my mom and moms in general,” he goes on. “Regardless of your relationship with your mother, she’s the reason you experience anything. It’s a fun tribute. I put out a call to fans to see if anyone wanted to sing on this. We ended up getting 50 people to create their own D.I.Y. vocal booths and follow our instructions to record at home. I took all of the voice memos they sent and placed them into the session. It’s an extended family collaboration.”


Lyrics

BECAUSE OF YOU

WRITTEN BY AARON ESPE & DORI MARCUM

I GOT LOVE MAMA, I GOT LOVE
I GOT LOVE MAMA, I GOT LOVE
BECAUSE OF YOU, BECAUSE OF YOU
BECAUSE OF YOU MAMA, I GOT LOVE
I GOT LOVE

I GOT JOY MAMA, I GOT JOY
I GOT JOY MAMA, I GOT JOY
BECAUSE OF YOU, BECAUSE OF YOU
BECAUSE OF YOU MAMA, I GOT JOY
I GOT JOY

SOMETIMES ANGER DEEP IN MY BONES
MAKES ME HURT BUT I’M NOT ALONE
BECAUSE OF YOU, BECAUSE OF YOU
BECAUSE OF YOU I’M NOT ALONE
NOT ALONE

I FOUND PEACE MAMA, I FOUND PEACE
I FOUND PEACE MAMA, I FOUND PEACE
BECAUSE OF YOU, BECAUSE OF YOU
BECAUSE OF YOU MAMA, I FOUND PEACE

AND I GOT LOVE, I GOT LOVE
I GOT LOVE MAMA, I GOT LOVE
BECAUSE OF YOU, BECAUSE OF YOU
BECAUSE OF YOU MAMA, I GOT LOVE
AND I GOT LOVE, I GOT LOVE
I GOT LOVE MAMA, I GOT LOVE
BECAUSE OF YOU, BECAUSE OF YOU
BECAUSE OF YOU MAMA, I GOT LOVE
I GOT LOVE
I GOT JOY
AND I FOUND PEACE
