In celebration of Valentine's Day, I am releasing this song free to my fans (donations are appreciated).

"Hearts So Sweet (Song For Tree)" was written for the girlfriend of a fan who commissioned me to write a song chronicling of their love. I feel so honored to write such a song for a fan. Now, I am releasing it for download, because, according to the fan for whom I wrote the song: "Love songs are meant to be shared."

(Just say NO to laptop speakers. Use quality headphones or speakers to enhance the listening experience.)


Turned the corner down the hall
To see her lovely face.
He took one look into her eyes,
The eyes of his soul mate.
A diamond in the rough back then,
He loved her from the start,
So reaching for the stars he worked
So he could reach her heart.

He became a prince for Tree.
High school hearts so sweet,
Together in harmony, together for eternity
They love on happily.

Senior year, prom night's here.
There's magic in her eyes.
After all the dancing's done
They go out for a drive
And chase the dawn out to the shores
Of Virginia's coast
But soon he must give his goodbyes
To the girl he loved the most.

Years go by as memories
Of young love long ago
Hibernate in the hearts
Of Tree and of Toad.
Love awakened finally
Across the lonely world.
Distance could not tame the love
Of this boy and this girl.
