I Am You

So, I promised a lot of people last weekend, that I would send them a copy of the song that I wrote for my dad Ardavan Davaran. Well… here it is. I recorded it yesterday, and I think it came out pretty nice. I have also included the lyrics below. Thank you all so much for for attending my father’s services. It was such a pleasure seeing you all, and meeting some of you for the first time. PLEASE stay in touch. Feel free to drop me a line in response. It makes me happy to hear from people that loved my dad. Talk to you soon…Ashkon Davaran

P.S. Feel free to forward the song to anyone you think would enjoy it… Thanks


I Am You

I am you, you are me, how lucky I am to be from such a man, no your love will never die

So much joy, what a life you have made for me, I’ll carry on with pride, knowing it’s for you

Don’t you worry about a thing, we will be okay, I will make up for any mistakes you have made

You are me, I am you, there’s so much more to make and I can’t wait for us to see this journey through


I am you, you are me, I know that you can see what I can see, and what a pretty point of view

Dreary nights, sunny says, in the ocean waves, under the stars, are the places I see you

And one day somewhere down the road, I will find someone to carry on the laughter of your legacy

You and me, everyday, I am here with you, and what a lovely place for you and I to be

What a lovely place for you and I to be

What a lovely place for you and I to be
