Tara and I were songwriting one day and I was upstairs ruminating on a phrase while she was downstairs writing some hit song, no doubt. I can’t remember the exact phrase running through my head, but it was something like, “Ours is my favorite love story”. All of a sudden I started hearing this melody and words rumble around in my heart, so I grabbed a notebook and started writing furiously.
In about 20 minutes, I had this song completed! Tara came up to see how I was doing, and I sang it to her for the first time… I hadn’t even sung it by myself yet. I started singing and within 30 seconds, I was bawling like a baby because it’s a song about a really meaningful piece of our story together!
She got out her cell phone and started the video rolling (she may even be persuaded to share that footage with you if you ask nicely, but no promises)… I sat there for 5 minutes and I could barely get through the song! I finally made it, but when I sing it to her live, chances are good that I will well up with tears… dang, I REALLY like and love that woman!
I remember that warm summer night
That you walked into my life
When I saw you, I thought my heart would burst
I couldn’t get you out of my mind!
About 6 months later, we took a mountain drive
And I wanted to talk with you all night!
I fell for you, baby
I’m still down for the count!
When you’re singin' in the morning
When you hardly make a sound.
We’ve heard some great stories of love in the world,
But without a single doubt in my mind,
Ours is my favorite!
On a country road at midnight
We pulled off to the side
I was flippin’ the radio dial
Tryin’ to find our love song
I got down on my knees and asked you for your hand
You jumped up and down and said, “YES!!!!!!”
It was better than I planned!
Standing there, holding your hands
In front of family, friends, and God
I declared my like and love for you
And you said the same thing right back
We walked out of that building sharing the same name
Then in the car and on the plane and every day since then!
