“You”

(Carpenters cover)

Some folks were having trouble getting this to stream through SoundCloud, so I’ve uploaded it here too. It’s a cover of an old Carpenters tune that I recorded a few years ago, remixed, corrected and remastered this week for Ed’s 50th birthday.  The words seemed very appropriate now more than ever.  I’ve included the lyrics.  It’s written by Randy Edelman.

YOU

You are the one who makes me happy
When everything else turns to gray
Yours is the voice that wakes me mornings
And sends me out into the day
You are the crowd that sits quiet
Listening to me
And all the mad sense that I make

You are one of the few things worth remembering
And since it’s all true
How could anyone mean more to me than you

Sorry if sometimes I look past you
There’s no one beyond your eyes
Inside my head wheels are turning
Hey, sometimes I’m not so wise
You are my heart and my soul my inspiration
Just like the old love song goes

You are one of the few things worth remembering
And since it’s all true
How could anyone mean more to me than you

You are my heart and my soul my inspiration
Just like the old love song goes

You are one of the few things worth remembering
And since it’s all true
How could anyone mean more to me than you
