about

In 2008, I began writing a song to ask Stacy to marry me. I ended up singing it to her live for the first time at our wedding reception in June 2010. I've spent the last two years building a studio worthy of recording the most important piece of music I've ever written, and the last 6 months recording it and mixing it. This has truly been a labor of love for me, inspired by the love of my life.

lyrics

I never thought my heart would see the sun again
And I can say without a doubt that you're my best friend
So I will not be silent anymore
You are the one that I adore

For all the times you held me tight
For everything that was never good in my life
You made it right and I want to thank you
You helped me to believe again
Now I want to give you everything these hands can provide
So we can discover all the very best things in life
You changed my life
You made it right

Because my whole world changed the day when I first saw your face
And you led me through the dark, you are my saving grace
So I will not be patient anymore
I want your love forevermore

For all the times you held me tight
For everything that was never good in my life
You made it right and I want to thank you
You helped me to believe again
Now I want to give you everything these hands can provide
So we can discover all the very best things in life
You changed my life
You made it right

I'll kiss your lips, I'll hold your body close against me
You make me better than I ever thought I could be
There's something that I need to say
It can not wait for one more day
So now I'm running to your door
To put my knee upon your floor
And take your hand and say

For all the times you held me tight
For everything that was never good in my life
You made it right and I want to thank you
You helped me to believe again
Now I want to give you everything these hands can provide
So we can discover all the very best things in life
You changed my life
You made it right
