Happy Valentines everyone :-* And because it's this very special day, I'm sharing this love song. It was one of the first songs I ever wrote, but I don't think I've shared it on this forum before. If I have, please forgive the repeat.  ::)
PS Is there any way you can look up all of the songs you've shared over the years on this forum? Is there a list somewhere on my profile?


Our paths crossed late one night
We talked and we laughed till the break of dawn
With a fire on the beach, we heard the sound
Of seagulls and voices and ocean waves

The moon was bright the air was cool
A light spring rain fell from the sky
Trees up above, they kept us dry
As our bodies entwined into the night

How could I be so lucky, to meet you in this lifetime?
How could I be so fortunate, to have your life, part of mine?

The sun rose silent from the ocean floor
We watched in a trance with a sense of awe
It all seemed surreal, and so divine
With seagulls and voices and ocean waves


Who knows, where tomorrow goes
The past is gone; will the future come?
Today’s all we got, so lets make it count
With you, what more could I ask?

The scene was set we didn’t have a chance
The moon and the fire and the ocean waves
Our hearts filled with joy, as our souls they touched
It was loves first night on the beach till dawn


Twenty years have past and now we celebrate
With wine and cheese and chocolate cake
Every year we go to that very same beach
And our love lives on, eternally

Hi CS, a touch of the CSN&Y boys I think. A more sparse arrangement than I've come to expect from you.Nice harmonies and a nice vibe. Very good!

Damn sweet song.
And you say it's really old?
You must have an incredible back catalogue.

Evocative. Thanks for sharing.
It's either this or that, then again it might be the other. 

I can promise you a future of slow decline.

And there you have it.

Very nice... especially like the bridge. I also got a 60s Laurel Canyon feel from it. I liked the way there are some rhymes but you also have not tied yourself to a rhyme scheme. Plus, you can’t beat a seagull sound effect. 👍
It's all too beautiful.
