about

I wrote this song in a day while I was still in Cali in 2011. I recorded the song in October of 2011 when I realized I needed to focus on the 20 credits I was taking and not making music. After coming back to this song I realized I had learned much about mixing and mastering, so I vowed to remake the song some day in the future with better production and whatnot. Until then, here you are!

lyrics

When I first saw you on the internet, I was quite surprised.
Cause the captain in the sailboat in my heart yelled abandon ship as it capsized
Oh yes it’s true, I’d fallen for you, though long distance seems unwise
The truth is that my sailboat docked somewhere else, it was caught up in your eyes

From Ohio to New York, to sunny California
I’ll travel through the skies to hear your voice
I’m living for the moment dear, don’t look back just kiss me here.
Loving you has never been a choice
I can’t help myself

You turn my life into a love song
You harmonize while I sing the melody
You strum your uke as I sing along
Who would’ve thought you’d be in love with me?
I can’t help myself

I may not be Andrew McMan, but I hope I can suffice.
Cause the one day that I spent with you was the best day of my life.
Your freckled face underneath a palm tree. You are tres cuteé
You don’t know how much I loved you more when you started singing Relient K!

From Ohio to New York, to sunny California
I’ll travel through the skies to hear your voice
I’m living for the moment dear, don’t look back just kiss me here.
Loving you has never been a choice
I can’t help myself

You turn my life into a love song
You harmonize while I sing the melody
You strum your uke as I sing along
Who would’ve thought you’d be in love with me?
I can’t help myself

Ron Weasley and Hermione ain’t got nothing like we do
I don’t even mind your swearing cuz you’re just so gosh-darned cute,
I didn’t wanna leave here without telling you the truth
But oh my gosh I’ve always had the biggest crush on you

You turn my life into a love song
You harmonize while I sing the melody
You strum your uke as I sing along
Who would’ve thought you’d be in love with me?
I can’t help myself

You turn my life into a love song
You harmonize while I sing the melody
You strum your uke as I sing along
Who would’ve thought you’d be in love with me?
I can’t help myself
