jshou A beautiful lilting melody, with gorgeous vocals and a sparkly and brilliant piano solo, sitting atop a lush horn and string section. This is a song that wakes you up and gently leads you on a walk outside, reminding you of what beauty can be.

If I hold your hand
Know you can trust me, once again
Walk with me my friend, tell me stories of when

As we walk along,
nothing you say will do me wrong.
Remember we’re strong
And with me you belong.

Darling maybe as we get old we decide to let go and begin just living
You and them all know, no one here
Hasn’t been hurt before
We can grow

I have lovely songs, phrases and
melodies that I hum
There’s no need to run
Tell us where have you gone
