about

Written and recorded Feb 5, 2017

Chelsey and I wrote this one together. I wrote the first 2 lines and she’d write a response. Basically it kinda became the combined story of our first few dates. Chelsey only really knows 3 chords on Mandolin so far so we had to write it with only using those chords. I taught her how to strum in waltz time and she ended up recording it together. This one was a lot of fun and I’m proud of her for working on it with me.

lyrics

You came to me when I didn't believe
That a love like yours I would find
I was lost and alone, felt like something was wrong
I used to be so blind
When you came into view all you had to do
Was to cast me that wonderful smile
I knew right away it was love here to stay
Now, forever, and a mile

So it began, the start of a plan
That was written before we had met
Though we didn't know yet just how it would go
A night we will never forget

We met at the majestic as I had suggested
The earth seemed to slow in its turn
I still wasn't sure, I still had to learn
That only for you I would yearn
I took a chance when I asked you to dance
Though I didn't know quite where it'd lead
At rhythm and brews I had nothing to lose
I knew you'd have all that I need

So it began, the start of a plan
That was written before we had met
Though we didn't know yet just how it would go
A night we will never forget
