my brother sent me this video the other day.  [as his big sister, i’d like to take some credit for helping him develop good taste in music 😉 ].

to me, it sounds jack johnson-ish with violin.  when i listen to it, i invariably close my eyes.  not sure if it’s from the beauty of the music or my subconscious following the lyrics’ directions…

 Sing To You

It’s almost late, I hate to tell you that
it’s my time to go
I’ve stayed as long as mama let me, she’s
sad I’ve found a new place to call my
Home is where you find your dreams,
but you’re staring at the sun
So close your eyes, forget I’m leaving,
and let me lay beside you while I

Chorus:
Sing to you
It won’t be long before I’m with you
And not without another song to
Sing to you
So close your eyes forget I’m leaving,
let me lay beside you while I

Find the words to paint the pictures of
where we’re gonna be…
A thousand days anticipation will
keep us on our toes until my knee doth hit the ground will shake when I ask you for your hand
I’ll stand behind you,
don’t be unkind, you know I’ll
keep my promise to you when I

Chorus

Bridge
Violin solo

I’ll hold you to my heart
is beating with every breath you take
A flower blooms and it fills the room
with the morning glory erasing all
The mistakes I made before we made it
and left it all behind
I’ll bow my head, kiss you gently
I know you understand the words I

Sing to you
It was not long, and now I’m with you
And not without the same old song to
Sing to you
So close your eyes forget I’m leaving,
let me lay beside you while I
Sing to you

    This is an amazing song. Did you write it? I just sat here at my computer in awe listening to it and was thinking just how beautiful it was- the violin really made it its own- nice job! Is there any way I can have a recording of this? I’de like to put it on my ipod!
    hmm-unless of course you didnt write it…hahaha. In that case, never mind. 😀
