Liner Notes: 

My wife is out of town for work and while we were texting this morning she suggested I write her a song instead of another break up song. I politely explained that it's harder to write a happy song than a sad one. But it got me thinking a little bit about how much I'm missing her and how it'd be really nice to actually write a song that reflected how I was feeling. Eventually I made my way to the guitar and this song kind of wrote itself down.

Lyrics: 

Put your hand in mine
Tell me that you're gonna stay
Walking with you and in hand
Means more than any words can say
When I'm down you pick me up
You chase all my troubles away
So put your hand in mine
And tell me that you're gonna stay

Put your hand in mine
Let me know that we're all right
There's no better feeling
Than coming home to you every night
After a day of working hard
I need you by my side
Put your hand in mine
Let me know that we're all right

Put your hand in mine
As we fall asleep
Let me know you're with me
Join me in my dreams
We don't have to try so hard
It's easier than it seems
Put your hand in mine
As we fall asleep

Put your hand in mine
Tell me that you're gonna stay
Walking with you hand in hand
Means more than any words can say

Your wife had a brilliant idea as it definitely resulted in a very moving loving song. Such a pleasure to listen to your song, it's inspiring, loving and positive. Love it.

That's pretty and sweet. Really catchy melody too. I like that you put 'put your hand in mine' the hook in there multiple times, and yet it didn't get stale. Really makes it stick in the brain.

Shucks, that's pretty nice. I have to agree with Val that the format with the hook appearing throughout is really working well. Very natural and organic.

This is beautiful! Great lyrics, and nice way of turning a happy feeling into a sad song.

I love the part where you say "We don't have to try so hard / It's easier than it seems".

Excellent, heartfelt song! So many of your songs are suited for intimate live performance - here's another one.
I was just thinking this morning that I've never written a hand-holding song. Maybe for FAWM ...
