Because of You
Lyrics by @kahlo2013

if not for you
where would I be?

if not for you
would love find me?

since it was you
my heart is home
where love is full
tender and sweet

because of you
I can be me
because with you
I am free

if not for you
how would joy grow?

if not for you
would love be known?

since it was you
joy lifts me up
my life is blessed
love fills my soul

because of you
I can be me
because with you
I am free

All together lovely this is! Beautiful rendering of @kahlo2013's lyrics. Kudos to both of you. The throwback, classic doo-wop vibe is a great style choice for this.

Oh here's a team-up that makes me happy!
I dunno how one can write such sweet lyrics so (from the outside looking in) seemingly effortlessly. But that's @kahlo2013 for ya' - you can write anything about anything and with not tons of words, and have every line drive home.
The lovely-dovey is in full-effect here, and the sugar sweetness is amplified with @cola voice and singing style.
Such clear and pretty harmonies on top of equally pretty piano. Love the layered vocals.
"because of you I can be me/because with you I am free" - ain't THAT the dream?
Great collab, you two!

I liked this immediately. Great lyrics, and a sensational vocal. I love your harmonies, too. "Because of you/I can be me." Lovely sentiment.

This has a beautiful retro sound. The sweet vocals deliver the lyrics with delicate precision, and the harmonies are just lovely. Excellent collaboration!

Oh this is beautiful. The vocals are gorgeous and the harmonies are fantastic. I love the slow place, the little piano twinkling around your vocal melody. Wonderful lyrics as always by @kahlo2013
