He sent me like a piano memo, he just recorded it onto his iPhone and he sent it to me like a text message. I just fell in love with the chords and the melodies and I just knew that I wanted to be a part of it.

–Miriam Bryant to MTV News[1]

"Find You" is a progressive house single written by Zedd, Matthew Koma, Miriam Bryant, & Victor Rådström and performed by Zedd, Koma, and Bryant. It was released as a single on January 26, 2014.

BackgroundEdit

After hearing Miriam Bryant's "Finders Keepers" on the German radio, Zedd called her; shortly after, he sent her a piano memo for "Find You" via a text message.[1] Miriam took an interest in the memo and accepted Zedd's offer to be one of its vocalists.

Matthew Koma came into the project as the second vocalist approximately one year later.[1]

LyricsEdit

Silent love is calling faith
To shatter me through your hallways
Into echoes you can feel
And rehearse the way you heal

Make them dance
Just like you
Cause you make me move
Yeah you always make me go

I'll run away with your foot steps
I'll build a city that dreams for two
And if you lose yourself
I will find you

High on words
We almost used
We're fireworks with a wet fuse
Flying planes with paper wheels
To the same Achilles heels

Make them dance
Just like you
Cause you make me move
Yeah you always make me go

I'll run away with your foot steps
I'll build a city that dreams for two
And if you lose yourself
I will find you

(yeah you always make me go)

Open up your skies
Turn up your night
To the speed of life
Turn up your night
Put your love in lights
Turn up your night
I will find you

Make them dance
Just like you
Cause you make me move
Yeah you always make me go

(yeah you always make me go)

I'll run away with your foot steps
I'll build a city that dreams for two
And if you lose yourself
I will find you

(yeah you always make me go go go go go)
Turn up your night
(go go go go)
Turn up your night
(go go go go turn it up turn it up)
Turn up your night
I will find you

Make them dance
Just like you
Cause you make me move
Yeah you always make me go
