album cover

This is a jazzy, latin-influenced love song - yet another one that came to me virtually intact while I was struggling with something else. I used a Sonic Stop 'Chameleon 2' drum loop, added some percussion, piano, sequenced some strings and pads, and then recorded several acoustic/classical guitars, bass guitar, backing vocals and single vocal. A string broke as I was recording a classical guitar track and made a great percussive sound as it hit the soundboard; so I used the sound occasionally in the song - see if you can spot it.
Lyrics
Verse 1
Keep, keep the love in your eyes
Where she can see it;
Wear, wear your heart on your sleeve
So she'll believe it.
Every passing second beckons
And offers a new opportunity;
Live in the here and now,
Tell her how you feel
Then make it real...
If you keep, keep the love in your eyes
Then you'll keep your love in your life.

Verse 2
Keep, keep the love in your voice,
Softly, smooth and soothe her brow
With every word; like raindrops to a flower
Shower her with love.
Everyday you're together is treasure
That, if you care, you share.
Save it up for the rainy days
That come everyone's way -
Then spend the gems you've gathered...
If you keep, keep the love in your voice...
Then you'll keep your love in your life.

Middle 8
Give her all your love -
Crown her with it -
Give her all your love -
But don't drown her in it...

Verse 3
Keep, keep the love in your eyes
Where she can see it;
Wear, wear your heart on your sleeve
So she'll believe it.
Every passing second beckons
And offers her new possibilities
He may try and pry her away
So tell her how you feel
Then make it real...
If you keep, keep the love in your eyes
Then you'll keep your love in your life.
