From the album: to be continued… released Oct, 2018

Someone asked me to describe my feelings for my sweetheart. It is so difficult to describe love. I told them that the first time I don’t feel the need to have a backup plan and I didn’t have a suitcase in the closet ready to go in case I wanted to leave. I know I am finally safe in his arms.

Song Lyrics

Light’s coming in through the window,
I love watching you sleep
My head finds its way to your pillow,
Warm breath, heart beat
A lifetime to find you. I never knew
 Love could hold such peace

Stay, I’m gonna stay,
Not walkin’ away, this time
Safe in the arms of a good man,
Someone who stands by my side

We always found something romantic,
‘Bout a storm rolling in, 
You’ll find me through lightings’ flashes,
When the dark comes in again

Thunder may shake us, Winds kick up dust
Make our whole world spin

Repeat Chorus
For the first time, I don’t have a suitcase packed
For the first time, no white flag or backup plan.
For the first time, I know down deep inside

Repeat Chorus
