TUNE Blanco White - I belong to you
The setting of ‘I Belong to You’ was important to the lyrics, describing a house overlooking the Straits of Gibraltar towards Morocco from the southern tip of Spain. I spent the winter months there last year, and it was elevated high up above the town of Tarifa. There are steep mountains on both sides of the narrow Straits, and the house had views of the two divided coastlines mentioned in the song. The lyrics recount the feeling of joy and wonder I had whilst staying there, sharing all that was inspiring about the place with another writer who the song is written for.
