Liner Notes: 

Alex: I've long appreciated Kristi's lyrics but to the best of my knowledge and memory, we've never actually collaborated before. So I figured it was time. I saw this lyric Kristi posted (*31697) before my lengthy vacation, asked for it, and she was kind enough to wait on me getting back to turn it to song.
My wife really likes this one. So that makes me happy.

Kristi: I really like how catchy the song is! And how you deliver the last line of the verses with a cool rhythm and attitude there! The song has a real happy vibe...strummin' guitar and vocal! Thank you so much! Smile P.S. Nope...I think you're right....I don't recall collaborating before either!

Lyrics: 

FOR US

Whistle a tune
In B flat or G
Wherever we’re going
We’re singing harmony

Buckle up now
Let’s live a few dreams
When we’re together
It’s a beautiful scene

[ch]
Yeah, love takes a brush
And paints for us
All kinds of shapes and colors
For us
Oh, love doesn’t rush
It waits for us
As the world becomes a wonder
(Just) for us

Bottle these moments
With breaths of fresh air
Days move without warning
And there’s so much to share

[ch]
Yeah, love takes a brush
And paints for us
All kinds of shapes and colors
For us
Oh, love doesn’t rush
It waits for us
As the world becomes a wonder
(Just) for us

[br]
Sugarcoat nothing
Forget the routine
We’ll find adventure
With you it's guaranteed

Repeat ch

I am so happy you two did this! Two talented people that can only do great things-and this is great! Love it!

Yes Kristis lyrics are very nice. Great vocal on this really brings it out. Nice collab.

I like the lyric, it's not always easy to write a happy song, I've found but the two of you have managed to make it sound effortless. I love the soaring melody that reinforces the strong chorus lyric.

Alex that chorus comes out up and lifted. Good stuff! A jaunty swing to the verses, carries the lyrics along, and the painting analogy. ANd I like Kristi's leading us away from the mundane. Enjoyed it!
