How I Love You So



 Genre: Easy Listening

Get Flash to see this player.

This is the first song I ever wrote. I originally posted it in the summer of 2004 here at MacJams. It later came down when I exited MJ for a short time. I wrote the song in 2001 and sang it to my daughter Christie on her wedding day the same year. This version has percussion, bass, keyboards, and some vocal harmonies. I posted an acoustic guitar and vocal version in 2010.

This is the original, no remix. Just want have it here for posterity sake. Hope you like it, especially you Dads of daughters...

I remember, as Daddies often do
It was bed time. You were only two.
You said,
"Put my animals on my bed
Line the bears up straight
Daddy put them near my head
I can hardly wait", and...

Sometimes I get to wondering
If through the years you've known
How much I love you girl
And tonight how I love you so.

I remember your struggles and your joys
As you grew up, and left behind your toys.
Your eyes they sparkled
Sometimes they teared
So soon a woman
How fast the years, and...


Now new memories, they begin tonight
At this moment you start a brand new life
Someone new will tuck you in
Line the bears up straight
Laugh with you and cry with you
You can hardly wait, and...

Simply smooth
and outstanding Jack. Good to keep it around. You might find you can never get it better. Sometimes the first mix/take/track comes out better than the retries. Just my luck perhaps. But this is very nice and cool. Great guitar and vocals!

Joyce, I've been known to do a sentimental song every now and then. Your gracious comments are warmly received. In fact, I'm honored by them. Again, thanks so much.
