"You Were Born" was inspired by a song performed by Cloud Cult that captured my attention.  The need to create a piece inspired by this song was so strong that the pull to do it felt magnetic.  The colours and style chosen for this piece were directly tied to the feelings, sensations and mood that this song elicited within my soul.  This song represents a period in my life where a monumental transformation took place inside of me.  

The song lyrics are listed below:

You were born into a strange world.

Like a candle, you were meant to share the fire.

I don't know where we come from, and I don't know where we go.

But my arms were made to hold you, so I will never let you go.

Cuz you were born to change this life.

You were born to chase the light.

You were born...

Love your mother, yeah she's s good one.

She'll build you armour; keep you warm as a hen.

The stars may fall and the rains may pour,

But I will love you evermore.

You were born to make this right.

You were born to chase the light.

You were born...

Oh my precious, oh my love, when they come to take me, 

I will hold you from above.

I don't know why we're here, and I don't know how,

But I'm here with you now, I am here with you now.

Cuz you were born to change this life.

Cuz you were born to make this right.

Cuz you were born to chase the light.
