Liner Notes: 

There are certain great lyricists here at 50/90 that I try to make a point of collaborating with every time around. Cindy is one of those! I finally finished up my big projects this evening so it's time to get back on the collab train. Here's a quick one to Cindy's lyric "What Brings You Joy" (*45122).


What Brings You Joy
© 2020 Cindy Prince

It's all around us
The little bird's nest
A path in the woods
It's in white puffy clouds
And in everything that's good

It's in every day things
Like a baby's giggle
An old lady's hands
It's in a choir singing
And wide open lands

So what brings you joy
What makes you smile
Helping a close neighbor
Going that extra mile
What makes you happy
Think about it and see
I hope you will do this
Then come and join me

It's all around the world
In the large and small
In an old winding lane
It's in a warm fire
And a nice blessed rain

It's in life itself
In every tiny form
In a newborn calf
A pretty flower garden
Or a big belly laugh

Repeat chorus

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

You've zoned right into what I'm saying and with such finesse! Just love it and I am so happy to work with you again!

i ike the way you divided the verses into two long musical phrases. then you slam into a minor chord and break out with the chorus

What an uplifting co-write! So refreshing to hear such positivity...as ever Cindy writes so well and Alex hits exactly the right tone!
