A note from Joe about the song...
"I broke down into tears recording "First Saw You" in the studio.
Just a few weeks before the session, my girlfriend of three years and I had parted ways. While trying to sing this song in the studio, I couldn't help but see through all the more obvious circumstances and into the heart of our breakup - we'd stopped seeing each other in the ways that originally fed our love. I stopped seeing that girl at the show who wouldn't return my glances, yet walked up with her number on a ticket stub at the end of the night. We only saw the dirty dishes, the piled up laundry, the fatigue of every day life.
I had written "First Saw You" a couple months prior to our split, but until that moment in the studio, it had just been a pretty song to me. It didn't register. I still refused to see, and it cost me a relationship with someone I had loved.
I hope when you listen to "First Saw You," you'll try to find that first glimpse again. I hope you'll make the effort to see with the eyes that "first saw" your partner. Look past the familiarity. Find that person again. Find those first moments. Remind yourselves why you fell in love.
I dream and hope this song will save a relationship, a marriage, a friendship...that it'll provide an opportunity to look around and really SEE that person again, before it's too late."
