Riff: Jack Johnson – “You Remind Me Of You”

Sep 16, 2013

Your momma gave those windows to your beautiful soul/Your daddy got more love for you than you could ever know

from You Remind Me Of You lyrics by Jack Johnson

Accepting his status as the most disorganised member of the family, Johnson tells his young daughter that despite his messiness and occasionally habit of creating havoc with her brothers, he’ll always be there to dry her eyes on a gentle if unashamedly twee acoustic lullaby.
