Joseph posted the photo above on Instagram recently and the words reminded me of his song "More To Give". It's a very tender composition and Joseph dedicated it to his baby nephew Max at the first and only known time this song was performed live in January 2004 at The Living Room NYC. Julia Darling joined Joseph's set adding her lovely vocals to "More To Give" and "A Smile That Explodes", as she also does on the studio recordings of both these songs.
The lyrics from the chorus feel so relevant, for now and always
Cause there always more to give
You have so much in your life
Please don't be afraid to live
To surrender to the night
You can listen to "More To Give" by Joseph Arthur on << YouTube >>
The song was released in 2006 as a B-side in a set of 3 x 7" vinyl singles for "Can't Exist".
