about

"Red String" is a fun, folky song about love and leaning into the belief that fate can bring two people together. The red string reference is an old Asian story about a red string tied around the ankle, finger or wrist. The two people connected by the red thread are destined lovers, regardless of place, time, or circumstances. This magical cord may stretch or tangle, but never break.

lyrics

In the summer, of 05 well I can still remember what you looked like
when we met, your hair was dark but your smile's stayed the same
when I let, you into my heart and you took me by surprise
and I know, it takes these moments to make me feel alive

And we've made each other happy ever since we met that day
And we joked about the future and how it must be fate
Pulling each other close, tied at the wrist by a red string
And we're just waiting for our future to begin

Late night, cool drive and I can hear your voice above the radio
As we sing, every song as though we really know the words
we begin, to forget the reason we ever took the drive
and I know, it takes these moments to make me feel alive

And we've made each other happy ever since we met that day
And we joked about the future and how it must be fate
Pulling each other close tied at the wrist by a red string
And we're just waiting for our future to begin

So I put a ring on your finger
Look down and remember
I put a ring on your finger
Look down and remember

(Look down, look down, look down and remember)
We've made each other happy ever since we met that day
