The Rusty Key

7 months into a relationship, we drove to a beach and went for a run, returning to the car to realise … I had lost my car-key on the beach. The new beau had a really great reaction – he didn’t utter a single recrimination. He just immediately swung into brainstorming solutions with me. We decided to look for the key before we did anything else, and he was such great company that the ultimately futile hunt for the key was actually enjoyable! I wrote this tune to represent how a person’s attitude can turn a crappy experience into a happy one 🙂
