When You're Loved

Liner Notes

#collab #acoustic_rock #love

Had fun setting this lyric to music. Chris asked if I would be interested in a collab and he graciously allowed me to pick a lyric to work with.

Lyrics

[V1]
In the tomorrows we don't yet know
I see you at my side
Keeping up in stride
Accepting me for who I am

[V2]
In such times of difference
Nothing makes much sense
But through a road of broken dreams
You piece me together

[Chorus]
Broken dreams
Fallen spirit
So much to bear
Without you

[V3]
In the drifting course of life
On that uncharted path of love
Your presence feeding my soul
Always guides me safe

[V4]
Stars perfectly aligned
Tells the story in skies above
That all is possible
When you're loved

[Chorus]
Broken dreams
Fallen spirit
So much to bear
Without you

[Bridge]
I knew nothing of love before
You etched it into my heart
There's no getting around it now
I'm all in, taking part

[Chorus]
Broken dreams
Fallen spirit
So much to bear
Without you

[Outro]
Love, love
When you're loved
Hearts flutter
Dreams come true
We fly above
All that's real
And oh so true
That's why I love you

I love that opening lyric! A much more poetic way to say the future. I also love "But through a road of broken dreams You piece me together" - oh that is just so lovely.

Love the guitar and vocals. You did a great job creating melodies for these beautiful lyrics. The simpler verse melodies really let the chorus shine and be the star of your song. Oh those very very cool harmonies in the chorus section - wowza my ears are in heaven. I am a big dissonance fan and you nailed it! I love the delicate treatment you gave the outro. Great collab guys!
