New music – Pretty

This song is not what you think at first.  It is the struggle of relationships, the in-the-balance moments at the end of a date, maybe the lets-get-this-over-with moments 5 or 15 or 25 years into a marriage.  I hope it gives some woman, somewhere, words to voice what her soul is feeling; I hope it gives some man, somewhere, a clue.  In a live vocal performance, there would be a third time through where the man and woman are singing their words together in a gentle tug of war and it would end with a question mark: tonight?  See the lyrics below.

Grace and peace to you…

You’re as pretty as the night is long;

I’ll want you as long as you’re pretty;

I’ll love you as long as I want you;

And I’ll stay with you as long as I love you.

Tonight, I want to stay with you.


If you’re thinking about staying the night;

If you stay with me as long as we both live;

If you love me as long as you stay with me,

And if you want me as long as you love me,

Then tonight … I feel pretty.
