From the recording Always There
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.
"BECAUSE OF YOU" (music & lyric by Mala Waldron)
Sunshine and birdsong, sweet melodies drifting through the treesMoonglow and whispers, all that your love has made me seeIt?s funny what I?m noticing nowThe world is opening up to meAlthough I can?t explain why or how, I know it?s true(CHORUS): Because of you I can soar to greater heightsBecause of youThe stars are shining brightI never knewMy heart could fill with so much joyAnd I know it?s because of youButterfly kisses and feelings I?ve never felt beforeThe dance of the fireflies, the waves as they wash along the shoreYou?ve given me a reason to singYour love is so inspiringAnd every single day holds the key to so much more(CHORUS): Because of youI can soar to greater heightsBecause of youThe stars are shining brightI never knewMy heart could fill with so much joyAnd I know it?s because of you~Bass Solo~Like dancing on the wings of a childI?m full of wonder, running wildIt?s all that I can do not to lose my self-controlCHORUS(Refrain):
My heart has opened wide / I feel the love inside
It's all because of you / Because of You --
