hi. i just recently found this site and am cherry picking people who write lyrics. i, in the past, have taken lyrics and when the songs spoke to me was able to write music accompaniment. ive also written many songs both words and music so if you have a partial song or a song in need of tweaking i could assist with that as well

i write mostly on guitar but have a digital piano, bass, and 12 string to add flavor to the production.
my influences are myriad but my wheelhouse is pop music between 1955 and 1980, although newer music is also a part of my sound. you can reply to me here or at zorro45071@yahoo.com

My first song lyrics.

I AM BECAUSE YOU ARE



(Verse 1) You came into my life when I needed you most

Lifting me up when times were low

My love was lost so long ago

Now your light shines on my lonely road



(Chorus) You are my love, you are my joy

You're in my heart, you are my soul

You are my everything,

I am because you are



(Verse 2) Life's given hard times & pain,

Of lost love that no longer remain,

No escape from the passing days

My hearts yearns for a place to belong

Just wanting to be strong to carry on.



(Chorus) You are my love, you are my joy

You're in my heart, you are my soul

You are my everything

I am because you are



(Verse 3) Now you've healed my heart with yours

You've given me purpose to move on

Lifting me up, helping me soar

You are the one, and I am yours



(Chorus) You are my love, you are my joy

You're in my heart, you are my soul

You are my everything

& I am just because you are
