Story

Ever notice how when you're in love, life just seems more vivid ... you start to notice things all around you, that you never quite really saw before ... that's what I was thinking about when I wrote this.  But on another deeper level, it's about the essence of ALL love and the way it can expand and color the way you perceive the world.

 

Lyrics

"BECAUSE OF YOU" (music & lyric by Mala Waldron)

Sunshine and birdsong, 
sweet melodies drifting through the trees
Moonglow and whispers, 
all that your love has made me see

It?s funny what I?m noticing now
The world is opening up to me
Although I can?t explain why or how, 
I know it?s true

(CHORUS): Because of you 
I can soar to greater heights
Because of you
The stars are shining bright
I never knew
My heart could fill with so much joy
And I know it?s because of you

Butterfly kisses and 
feelings I?ve never felt before
The dance of the fireflies, 
the waves as they wash along the shore

You?ve given me a reason to sing
Your love is so inspiring
And every single day holds the 
key to so much more

(CHORUS): Because of you
I can soar to greater heights
Because of you
The stars are shining bright
I never knew
My heart could fill with so much joy
And I know it?s because of you

~Bass Solo~

Like dancing on the wings of a child
I?m full of wonder, running wild
It?s all that I can do not to lose my self-control

CHORUS

(Refrain):

My heart has opened wide / I feel the love inside

It's all because of you / Because of You --
