Story behind the song
Written over two days in March, 2015. This is an expansive ballad that uses large imagery to convey the depth and breadth of love. I had a hard time nailing down the melody, and at one point had two different sets of chords. Several verses were difficult to phrase properly at first, but now I can't imagine doing it any other way.
Lyrics
Look at the sky with all the stars that twinkle That is my heart, that is my heart Now feel the ocean with its waves eternal That is my heart, that is my heart Look at the Earth as it spins around That is my heart, that is my heart Now watch the lightning strike on the ground That is my heart, that is my heart I am the Sun and Moon, and everything between I am the rainbow that always shines unseen You are the Alpha and Omega that I need You are the apple tree, that brings forth the seed Look at the snow cover all in silence That is my heart, that is my heart Now hear the wind shake the world with violence That is my heart, that is my heart I am the day and night, and everything besides I am the eclipse that gives and takes the tides You are the One and the Only that I crave You give back to me, every thing I gave Look at the clouds that reign over all That is my heart, that is my heart Now wait for mountains to tumble down and fall That is my heart, that is my heart Look hard at me and catch the rhythm beating That is my heart, that is my heart Now take my hands and feel my pulse repeating That is my heart, that is my heart
