After the Dusk settles



They leaned together in a quiet embrace. Watching the trees swing in the wind. Sharing a silence that truly is magical once you earn the complexity of a simple moment. Time in their faces, in the lines on their hands, the marks on their skin. Lovers, friends, life long companions who speak without words, a look...a smile...even the way one breathes in and releases. Their is a peace that can be found in the truth of those precious seconds before the blur of the busy takes back over. And in those ticking hands that walk through countless thoughts a phrase emerges that encapsulates their history, the moment they are in and the future that stands before them.

Baby, I was made for you.

The line was delivered by my co-writers, Rosanne Baker Thornley and Scott Dennis MacKay. I had rarely used the word "baby" in any song I had been a writer on.  But the simplicity of it not only intrigued me, it sparked an idea for music and a special thing happened that all songwriters have experienced in their lives from time to time...A waterfall of lyric came out and painted a picture that was so easy to accept. It felt good. It made sense. It spoke volumes in the essence. A couple hours after playing and writing the song had reached close to 90%. Because of the crunch on having to get another song done the same week, and a myriad of obstacles that stood in the way...we not only found the time, but came in early beating the clock by more than minutes this time.

I have truly enjoyed this experience and will smile everytime I walk through a new door that I have opened because of it.

Below are the lyrics and link to this weeks final challenge for Matt Dusk.

Thanks for listening and reading the rambles.


Just like the day standing under the sun
Like a smile always dancin with fun
Just like the tide swimming under the moon
Baby its true...i was made for you

I wanna show you
That I  gotta know you
Girl you make my body move 
I wanna tell you
Just how much I love ya
Baby I was made for you.

Verse 2:

Just like the tracks sleeping under the train
or like a book holding on to the page
Just like the silver touching the spoon
Baby its true...I was made for you

I wanna show you
That I gotta know you
Girl you make my body move 
I wanna tell you
Just how much I love ya
Baby I was made for you.

CHORUS: 

Your the flame that sets me on fire
you Take me to the top 
But just a little bit higher
