My Music
Someone Just Like You (2019)  

Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes etc

Some songs begin with a phrase, some with a melody; this one began with a series of four chords: (A major 7 to D major 7/ Bm to E6). Whenever I played this progression it produced in me what I can only describe as a heartful feeling; that’s why it turned into a love song. I wrote it about my wife but hopefully it will resonate with anyone embraced by the mystery of love.

Here are the lyrics:

Someone just like you,
You turned my world around.
So thankful that I finally found
Someone just like you. 

Someone just like you,
The sun that made the flowers bloom,
That took away the winter’s gloom –
It’s all because of you. 

Darling when I see your face,
It takes me to a better place,
Where everything is new.
It’s all because of you.   

One thing that I know:
The world would be a better place
If everybody knew
Someone just like you. 

Darling when I see your face,
It takes me to a better place,
Where everything is new.
It’s all because of you.
