about

I wrote this love song for my wife based on a phrase I heard in a movie a few years earlier. The lyrics tell the story of our romance. It is my most-requested song ever! And I have a lot of people tell me I sound like a Celtic Neil Diamond. Ok sure. :)

lyrics

I walked down a dusty old road.
I didn't know what I'd find or where I'd go
Tree limbs hung low, and they blocked my view
I saw you through the branches and I wish I knew... ye

You wrote your name on my soul
And I feel like I'm out of control
You wrote your name on my soul
That's how it is, I'll go with the flow

We looked at each other, in the shadows I'm sure I couldn't see
You stepped closer and your beautiful face lit up at me.
I took your hand in mine and we wandered off down the road
It feels so right. It's like I've always known

You wrote your name on my soul
We laughed as I twirled you about
You wrote your name on my soul
Then held your breath as I touched your mouth

[bridge]
On the wheels of time, we traveled the globe.
As we reeled through life our adventures overflowed
Our love only grew. Our love oh how it grew
How did you know that I would be so in love with you.

We walked through fields of green as high as our knees
In the valley of love, we sat beneath a tree
Our lips were red from cherries and a long kiss
We lay there for hours til the stars shone down on our tenderness

You wrote your name on my soul
I saw it in the constellations
You wrote your name on my soul
And my blood is pumping elation

[solo]

Your name on my soul, Your name on my soul
You wrote your name on my soul, Your name on my soul

You wrote your name on my soul
I don't know what you did to me
You wrote your name on my soul
But it's all that I was meant to be
You wrote your name on my soul
And I'm happier than I've ever been
You wrote your name on my soul
And our story will never end.
