**EXCERPT FROM AUGUST 2009 MUSICNOTES INTERVIEW: Among Gavin's most recent offerings is his piano version of the Death Cab For Cutie favorite I Will Follow You Into The Dark, which has become a hit with fans of the Stephenie Meyer - Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn books and movies. Gavin revealed that, "I've always loved playing the song, and although I'd never intended to record it, we went ahead and filmed a one-take performance our last night at Peter Gabriel's studios. Not only did the people in my camp end up loving the arrangement, but fans of the 'Twilight' series discovered the track, and we've been flooded with emails asking if I created it specifically with Edward and Bella in mind. Although that isn't the case, I'm honored that they connect with the song on such a deep level." WITH LYRICS: I Will Follow You Into The Dark Love of mine... someday you will die But I'll be close behind... I'll follow you into the dark... No blinding light no tunnels to gates of white Just our hands clasped so tight Waiting for the hint of a spark... If Heaven and Hell decide that they both are satisfied Illuminate the "No's" on their vacancy signs If there's no one beside you when your soul embarks Then I'll follow you into the dark... Catholic school as vicious as Roman rule I got my knuckles bruised by a lady in black I held my tongue as she told me "Son, fear is the heart of love" So I never went back... If Heaven and Hell decide that they both ... Distributed by Tubemogul.
