about

This song was written a bit differently than most of my others. I was in mine and my wife's guest bedroom working on some photos when I decided to pick up the guitar, just to mess around, while the computer thought about whether or not it wanted to let me get any work done.

The chord progression for both the verse and chorus came almost immediately and I heard the melody after playing the chords through just a few times. It was the most natural that coming up with a song has felt in a long time, and I didn't even set out to write one in the first place. I love songs that have very visual lyrics, lyrics that create vivid imagery in the mind of the listener, and it's never been my strong suit writing lyrics like that but I think this song came out pretty well in that regard.

I managed to snag 3rd place in the local newspaper's county-wide songwriting competition with this song, so that's pretty cool. It's just a simple love song, but I hope you like it, thanks,

lyrics

The pathway that will lead us to your home
To my feet, is as familiar as my own
I’ve come to love the light this time of day
As it makes it’s way through treetops to caress your face

May I walk you home
May I walk you home
May I walk you home from school?

We’re laughing in the street between the bars
And I think it’d be unwise for us to make use of our cars
The stars burn bright and brilliantly tonight
And I’d do anything for just a few more minutes by your side

May I walk you home
May I walk you home
May I walk you home tonight?

I never thought we’d be quite where we are
That someone could ever hold me quite so firmly in their heart
And we may have our troubles time to time
But I’m content as always when I’m right here by your side

May I walk you home
May I walk you home
May I walk you to our home?
