metalfoot:
Georgie asked me if I had an title idea, because she wanted to write me a lyric. I gave her the title "With Great Anticipation" and she gave me this lyric. I made it into a piano ballad.

And it is song #50. (well, 49, since my daughter gets one of these as well)

Thematically, it ties in with the anniversary my wife and I celebrated at the end of last month.

Thank you, Georgie, for writing a song with me!!!

Lyrics: 

WITH GREAT ANTICIPATION
(c) 2019 Cooper/Klages

VERSE
It was so long ago
But only yesterday
You and I we met
It seemed like it was fate

We’ve come a long way
So many sunsets
We’ve shared a long road
Met several dead ends

CHORUS
With great anticipation
We’ll be celebrating
Another ten years of our love
With great anticipation
You and I will still be saying
It’s you I choose my love

VERSE
Times they tested us
But we got through
The storms were tough
And the winds blew

But there was always me
And there was always you
So many memories
Life has been so good

CHORUS
With great anticipation
We’ll be celebrating
Another ten years of our love
With great anticipation
You and I will still be saying
It’s you I choose my love

BRIDGE
But we’re here
We made it this far
Without fear
in our hearts

CHORUS
With great anticipation
We’ll be celebrating
Another ten years of our love
With great anticipation
You and I will still be saying
It’s you I choose my love

The piano ballad style fits this lyric so well. And those string patches fill it out very nicely. I like the imagery in the metaphors, long road, storms... and I like how they both lead right to the chorus. A fitting collab considering your recent anniversary. I've a 20th coming up... I should probably write something for it. Hopefully it's as heartfelt as this sounds.

Wonderful faux-casio keys-ization. Every anniversary my wife asks if I want to do another __ years Smile

First, was trying to go to Alex page to congratulations on 50 songs but the link keeps coming up "this page isn't working". I don't know what's up with that so I'll try a different route but happened and still happening. Never mind that for now and let's look at the song.

Looking at the lyrics...the first couple of verses seem a little confusing until I realized that they finally actually got to know each other...nice. Great chorus and perfect for an anniversary. The next verse has a nice visual with the storms and winds morph with ups and downs of a relationship. The next verse brings up me and you and life has been so good. Consistent with the chorus. The bridge has the key we made it. Pretty good Georgie. I'm ready for the audio now...hold. Piano...vocals now...sounds good...can clearly understand the lyrics...bass now...foot drum...good melody...strings and snare now...vocals solid all the way...strong lyrics...there was always me and there was always you...life has been so good...celebrating another 10 years of our life...with great anticipation...with you I choose my love...with great anticipation...another 10 years of our love...it's you...and out. Very nice Alex. This is the first time I've heard you with a piano. You always sound good. Congratulations on 50 songs. I'll find my way to your soundboard through another link. Great job on this by both.

A lovely arrangement that is sentimental without descending into schmaltz or overdosing on saccharine.

The title's bugging me for some reason - not in a bad way. It's as if it's a line from a film I love, but I can't remember where, or even the context in which I might have noticed it...
