Liner Notes: 

I wrote many lyrics when i was young and later a fair bit of music but never really kept it! A few years ago I decided to keep all my new songs as i wrote them properly. They are now in a searchable database. Early this year I cleaned them up, moved out unfinished ones to somewhere else and got rid of duplicates! Whats the importance of that? today's song is number 1,000. completed. 700 hundred have lyrics and music and 200 are just lyrics about 100 instrumentals. Of the 700 about 550 have reasonable demos as do 100 instrumentals. I am slowly going back remastering all of them.

So for 1000 i had something in mind but this song came to me almost complete and i thought it would be nice to write it for my wife who has born some of the pain of that 1000, thank goodness she liked it!

I had the melody and progression in my head couldn't decide if i might go big production, a couple of good muso friends are around and i could have roped them in. But I sat down with the trusty Washburn did the chords in 1 take, then did the finger picking over the top, added drums and a couple of effects. that was it! so then i went and played it live for the wife! not sure if i will do more with this or not or leave it like is! (at least do the vocals again) it was also pretty quick at 145 bpm.

Lyrics: 

The touch of your lips
The sway of your hips
The glint in your eye
The way that you sigh

Like a fly on the wall
Feeling so small
Wondering why
You’re in under supply

Your so beautiful to me
so beautiful to me

I love you like this
I wait for your kiss
Its how it should be
Just you and me

I wait here each day
I hope and i pray
Together again
Just Like my refrain

Your so beautiful to me
so beautiful to me

Being with you
You know its true
I feel your heat
My heart missed a beat

You're so complete
I fall at your feet
Surely you know
I love you so

Your so beautiful to me
so beautiful to me

Being with you
You know its true
I feel your heat
My heart missed a beat

You're so complete
I fall at your feet
Surely you know
I love you so

Your so beautiful to me
so beautiful to me

Congratulations, and what a story behind the song!
Gently groovy and so, so sincere. What a delightful listen. That mix of instruments is just right, and I love the personal-ness of your voice.

the music is so joyous and the lyrics straight fro the heart. this song would make any girl dance.congratulatons on #1000.

I agree with Bill about the joyous feel of the music. You tend to nail that in your tracks.
1000 songs...that's amazing to me. To have all those things to say, and to be able to say all those things. Hats off, mate!
That's really cool that you wrote this and performed it for your wife. The backstory to the song makes it even more enjoyable for the listener.
Love comes through the lyrics and feel of this track, for sure.

Congrats on #1000! I'm thinking I'll probably not ever make that number. I'm at about 200 and I'm...old.

Gorgeous song again--and I PARTICULARLY love the tone you're getting on the acoustic guitars in the backgrand (high strung or whatever--nicely trebled anyway).

I like your vocal treatment on this. Now...time to work on your next 1000.

This sweeps along like a cool breeze ... guitar sounds great, and the love driving the song is tangible.

This is sweet! I love those chiming guitars and the way things chug along. You could give this a sort of rocking new wave/post-punk feel, the Another Girl Another Planet by the Only Ones

At it's heart it's the simple, beautiful sentiment of the lyric that makes this work so well. A sentiment that deserves to be uplifted in a giddy whirl just like this. It's really really nice.

Also, 1000 songs, man. Wow! Hats off!
