Description
I'm doing the FAWM.org challenge this year... that's 14 songs in the month of February. So here's my second song... er... I realize that it's like the second week... but I can at least say I've learned a few valuable lessons:

lesson 1: Don't try and construct a gospel choir during FAWM!
lesson 2: It's only a demo.
lesson 3: Please see lesson 1.

So anyway... I'm still not happy with this tune. Besides some out of tune backup vocals that I couldn't track down, the lyrics in the later verses kinda *bug* me. But I'm learning to let go... The next couple tunes will be much less involved - I hope.

Lyrics
The last time I wrote a song for you
Our lives were in a little disarray
Even though we've been together now, living side by side
I still have something I want to say

It's not hard to get trapped by complacency
When you've been together for a while
But the way you used to make me feel is how I feel today
And I still long to see your smile

A long time ago
In a galaxy far far away it seems
so fresh and new
two kids running after their dreams
Holding hands
hours at the mailbox we stood
made our debut
hard to believe in something so good

But it's not hard to believe
that we'll last a long long time

It's been a long long time
since the day I first noticed your eyes
It's been a long long time
when you first made my temperature rise
No matter how long it's been it's not too long
And our love is aging like a fine wine
'cause it's been a long long time

Some songs are written when you fall in love
There are songs written when something goes awry
But I just want to tell you now, I'm happy I'm with you
And I'm glad that we see eye to eye

When the race is over and kids are asleep
And we're left passing out from the run
I realize if I had a chance to do it all again
I'd live each day the way I have done

Enjoy how your wrote the words
Cool harmonies!!
It seems to really gather steam as for as my ears.

You've done a terrific job with those harmonies, some of the best i"ve heard at Mac jams. Right up there in the good harmonies of MJ I think!

REally nice catchy tune!
Again. terrific harmony!
