I don't remember now, but it was probably a hard night with the kids because that's usually what prompts him to start playing - to unwind.
I started to get upset. "Why am I the one out here battling the kids to bed and cleaning when I've been doing this all day? It must be nice to get time to yourself!" I fumed to myself. I opened the door to our room and melted at this sight:
"You are so sincere
You make me laugh and calm the fear
Right from my heart
The only thing I have to say
I thought from the start
When I first saw you
I would give the world away for you
I would give anything to be with you
As I look into your eyes
I see the morning sunrise
Let me hear your voice and see you smile
Once in a while
Just once in a while"
Of his songs that have lyrics, most were written by his younger brother, Adam, and then Chris added the music later. This is one he wrote the music and words to himself.
Chris wrote this before we met - for another girl. He only went on one date with her and can't remember her name now. But I still love the song. And I love that he sang it to Elizabeth.
I really do love this man.
