Liner Notes: 

This lyric by @Donna Devine had a chorus that jumped out and grabbed me by the scruff of the neck while shouting "WRITE MUSIC TO ME"
How can I resist Smile

Donna sez: Thanks so much, Corey, for this fine rendition. VERY nice indeed. Smile

Lyrics: 

All I Need is You

V1
You seem to be glowing in front of me
I say to myself it’s not what it seems
But the fact is you’re an angel
And you stepped right out of my dreams

Pre-chorus
You’re my joy, my ecstasy
A window opening inside of me

Chorus
All I need is you
My whole life through
All I need is you
To hold you tight until the end of time
All I need is you
Your eyes and your smile
The wonderful ways you show me you’re mine

V 2
Hearts locked together but we each have a key
Not prisoners of love, we’ll always be free
Dancing where we want to
Holding hands inside Life’s marquee

Pre-Chorus
You’re my joy, my ecstasy
The wildest storm, the calmest sea

Chorus
All I need is you
My whole life through
All I need is you
To hold you tight until the end of time
All I need is you
Your eyes and your smile
The wonderful ways you show me you’re mine

Bridge
There isn’t a rock we can’t push aside
What the world throws at us we’ll take in our stride
Love is our home, whether tent or mansion
The heights of our longing, the depth of our passion

Chorus
All I need is you
My whole life through
All I need is you
To hold you tight until the end of time
All I need is you
Your eyes and your smile
The wonderful ways you show me you’re mine

Donna the lyric is great, why haven't I looked in before? My fault. Corey, there's a lovely feel to the melody of this, and your treatment of that chorus is just tops. Love that modulation in the pre-chorus too.

Fantastic song and collaboration. I love the positive feel here. So loving and uplifting. Timeless song and endless possibilities. Your song would be perfect in a romantic movie. I was listening and feeling the beat, the dynamic, the hypnotism of something happy, positive, truly wonderful! I'm still smiling after my listen. Thank you both so much!!!

Has the sound of a classic pop song, almost a Motown flavor especially in the chorus. Great words, so positive and loving, really good lyric.
