From the recording Water of Ten
THE LOVE BEHIND THIS SONG
I may not know the difference between a fourth note and a fifth
I'm just playing the way I feel
I'm not writing my songs to impress Beethoven or Bach
I only write what comes from the heart.
Although, I may not sing this song
In perfect key and pitch
I know what's in my heart and in my soul
And though these chords I play
Won't take long to decode
I play them just the way I feel.
IF ONLY YOU COULD HEAR THE LOVE BEHIND THIS SONG
DON'T THINK OF SHARPS AND FLATS
DON'T THINK THAT IT SOUNDS WRONG
IF ONLY YOU COULD HEAR
THE LOVE HIDDEN IN THE MELODY
THAN YOU MIGHT DISCOVER
THE ONE IN LOVE WITH YOU IS ME.
I wouldn't know an ostinato
If it hit me in the face
I wouldn't know if a note goes
On a line or on a space
It's only someone's way of writing
In between the lines
All that matters to me
Is if someday.... you'll be mine.
