So here it is, a straight-up love song. There's also a little commentary about technology and our fast-paced lives in there... but it's a love song. I wrote this in the kitchen with my spouse sitting nearby, so this is real life, folks. She was adding some really nice harmonies, but I'll have to record those another day.
Yeah, number fourteen!
Sit in the kitchen,
Stealing a glance every now and then.
Something in the oven,
How does it feel now?
A year and a half, are we settled down?
But I have no doubt we’ll keep on
Put your cell phone down,
Put your work away and say you love me.
Open up your arms,
Won’t you turn my way and say you love me?
Lots of distractions,
Coming from outside, some from within,
The journey is to keep on
Not saying it’s easy,
But life’s a little softer with you and me,
Keeping our heads up,
It’s not just the fireworks,
Sometimes it’s a touch or a soft, affirming word.
More like a yard filled with
