A song created with my pal Patrick Poulou (Lafayette). Love and loss are constants in all of our lives. This song is devoted to that.

The song of you
Is something true
No dissonant chords
Only simple words

Of how I miss
Our morning bliss
You’ve gone away
I begged you to stay

You told me then
You’d be back when
The forest cleared
I’d have you near

But brush did burn
And now I yearn
Why did you leave
Perhaps a reprieve

Would help you see
That you needed me
To help unfold
Your story untold

I’d convert your bliss
With a simple kiss
No need to hide
I’ll keep you inside

You needn’t try
To hold back your cry
I understand
With my gentle hand

Let me lift you up
From fears ugly grip
My strength is yours
My heart will pour

You’re safe with me
No need to flee
I’ll let you rest
Upon my breast

Together we’ll find
That life’s ugly rind
Does not apply
If we simply try

To keep our bond
Between us strong
I’ll fend off fire
With the love we desire

Nifty stuff. You sing well.

A little more reverb would make your voice sit better in the mix.

I've been singing since grammar school, performing in a number of choirs, and in college in a few jazz bands. Although I parked my interest in music while I pursued a career in advertising, I now have more time to indulge in my passion for jazz. I p... [see more]
