Hello my friends! As many of you know...I write songs for myself...but I also write songs that other artists can sing too! This song was written with my friends Tammy and Troy. I wrote this song back in the summer when I had just come back from my honeymoon in Napa and Sonoma. Because I had just spent a week drinking good wine, I wanted to write a song called 'Wine Down." My co-writer Tammy rightly said it would probably end up being a lot of wine puns and metaphors (and I mean, I love a good wine metaphor!) if we used that title. So, we changed the title to "Wind Down."
We wrote this song for a guy to sing to his wife when she comes home from a long day at work. I personally like writing songs for a guy to sing because I'm a girl, and I know what I would like to be sung to me! The three of us put our heads down and wrote this song and I love how it turned out! Troy, our sole man songwriter, sang the demo of this.

Wind Down by Erica Bryan, Troy Castellano, and Tammy Jacobs
V. Baby you're getting home so late tonight
Been swimming all day in deadlines and red lights
Look at those high heels, they can't be doing you right
Just take em off, take em off, sit down awhile
C. Baby, let me help you wind down
Don't do anything, just let your hair out
I'll pour the chardonnay while you talk about
Your long day, it's ok, i'm gonna make everything right
Honey, wind down with me tonight
V. So you say you got caught in the rain
Dealing all afternoon with mistakes, headaches
Get wrapped in my arms, I'll make it ok
Forget it all, forget it all,
Let's drift away
B. Tonight I'm gonna let you catch your breath, but only halfway
because baby what you need is for me to take it away
Sometimes I think I'm crazy. But sometimes, I think I know exactly what I'm doing.
