Liner Notes

loved this one. I tweaked the lyrics a bit to make it more universal. Seeing if I can aim my collabs at entering them for briefs. But I am still so slow with production! aijaijai...

Lyrics

So Many Things make me happy
© 2022 Cindy Prince

It’s Piping hot coffee first thing
The scent of lilacs in the spring
Colorful vistas across the land
Me and you in the rain holding hands

It’s Grandchildren sitting on a lap
Reading a book, then taking a nap
Big snowflakes falling to the ground
Distant places with no manmade sounds

Chorus
So many things that make me happy
Both simple and more immense
A child's smile or an understanding
Pink roses and flowering quince
Maybe it's silly or sappy
But so many things make me happy

It’s Ice cream cones on a sweltering day
The kid inside me that still wants to play
A look of love and a sip of wine
Sweet smelling laundry fresh off the line

A country drive on a winding road
A fresh apple pie served a la mode
A romantic dinner, a sip of brandy
A county fair and cotton candy

Repeat chorus

This is so uplifting in it's simplicity and truth...a gorgeous meld of the positive concept in the words by @cindyrella and the mellifluous singing and playing of @marthie that combined are truly lovely!

I'm loving Cindy's lyrics this season--so much about nature, which is what poetry should be mostly about anyway. Another great vocal/musical interpretation of Cindy's poetry, Marthie--you are the master!

good to hear some positive thoughts in the morning. appreciating the good things with such a joyously prancing piano.

I knew you could this one shine! I love the simple piano and the soft sort of whisper. It's so good and this song makes me happy! Thank you!

You are a habitual tweaker Marthie! :-). I love that almost whisper style, so much melody just within your voice. Lovely lyric Cindy, i am just starting to catch up on my reading and listening and hadn't seen this! Class collab!
