Liner Notes: 

Steve had a great idea for a song theme, so we put our heads together and came up with this little number. It was a first for both of us, but I think we both enjoyed the challenge, and the result. Thanks for checking out our song.

Thanks again, Steve. You're great to work with Smile

Lyrics: 

V1
Please let me turn the lights off
Before I let you in
Cuz I'm scared you'll run if I let you
See me in my skin
So just let me pretend
That you can't see my broken parts
If I keep you at a distance
Peering blindly through the dark

V2
Oh let me shine a light on you
there's nothing to fear
cuz in my eyes you're perfection
let me make it crystal clear
there's nothing that you need to hide
No, nothing to repair
I love you just as you are
just as you are my dear

Chorus
I don't love you for your skin and bones
I love you for your soul
And even in the darkest room
You'd still be beautiful
We could turn down every light in town
But I think you should know
Even the deepest dark can't steal your glow

V3
When I hear the hinges creak
I pull a cushion to my face
Cuz I’m scared you’ll run if I let you
See the scars I have in place
So just let me imagine
You see only flawless skin
Feels better in the shadows
Don’t let the sunlight in

V4
Let me pull the curtains back
And gaze upon your face
I could never run from scars
That I would rather trace
I want all your perfect pieces
You don't ever have to hide
I love everything you are
I love the soul inside

Bridge
I love everything about you
Within you and without you
You may see yourself
As a shadow in the dark

All I see is the keeper
Of my heart

All I see is the keeper
Of my heart

Chorus
I don't love you for your skin and bones
I love you for your soul
And even in the darkest room
You'd still be beautiful
We could turn down every light in town
But I think you should know
Even the deepest dark can't steal your glow

Beautiful! Like a song playing in the background scene of a TV show or movie where they show each person of a couple reflecting on their relationship. Super well done!

my first thought when the baritone voice sang the second verse was that he was off key and the song should modulate to remedy it. but when the chorus came in i realizee was singing a harmony part perfectly in tune with the tenor so a modulation was not the answer. my suggestion is for the baritone to sing the melody, not the harmony part when singing solo on the verse, as the harmony notes dont work with those chords when sung without the tenor part. to clarify, i dont suggest the baritone singer to sing in a tenor range. remain a baritone, but sing the melody, not the harmony when singing alone..

I really love everything about this song… the vocals together are absolutely splendid and this song is really beautiful. The gentle guitar is perfect. I love the vulnerability and the poetic images.

Absolute perfection! What stellar lyrics! I especially love the harmonies on that chorus. Very relatable….and I love how each person has parts of their body they’re struggling to be vulnerable with….we all have scars: visible and hidden. This is a wonderful song.
