Description
This is a birthday song I wrote for a friend to give to his wife a few years ago. I thought it might be nice to revive it and color it up some, so I sent a track with just vocal and guitar to Paul Page who laid down some very nice piano, strings and flute for it. My good friend, Jack (davisamerica) offered to help me put it together, so he got with Neil Porter (Jiguma) for a bass track, and Scofugate (Scott Fugate) for drums. This talented pair has turned several of my songs into real gems, and I can’t thank them enough for their generous contributions. And then it seemed like rich soil to plant some nice harmony, so I looked up Roxylee, who also has added her angelic voice to so many of my songs.
I’ve said it before: MacJams is a songwriter’s paradise. I’ve just been amazed at how the artists here can turn a mediocre song into a work of art. I almost feel guilty, perhaps even unworthy. I’m a songwriter on steroids. Is this legal?
And again, thanks to THE davisamerica for his hard work and incredible mixing. Jack and I go waaay back, and I pray we go waaay forward as well.
I hope everyone enjoys our song. Peace. Terry

This One That I Adore


There was a time I’d sit around and question why I’m here
I searched for keys to unlock each and every door
You came into my life, and these questions disappeared
I looked into your eyes, and I didn’t wonder anymore
You fill me with your love each day that’s in the year
Let me take just one to tell you what I’m doing here

I just want to celebrate the day that you were born
I want to show the world, I want to tell the world about this one that I adore
And when you blow the candles out, tell your wish to me
I’ll climb the highest peak, I’ll swim the deepest sea for whatever that may be

There are no words that can express the joy you’ve given me
You can’t imagine what it was like before you came
I needed someone in my life so desperately
Your love fell upon me like a warm summer rain
The first time I saw you was the answer to a prayer
And every foolish question, I just threw into the air

I just want to celebrate the day that you were born
I want the world to see what’s been done for me by this one that I adore
No matter what path you take, I’ll be there by your side
And anything you need, you can turn to me, and these hands, they will provide

You are a songwriter's songwriter
And this song is such a sweet love song... You guys have such amazing musical talent! I love being a part of this process, of hearing the builds and getting to add some harmony. it's always easy to sing with you, Terry. Jack is the mixer magic man. The instrumentation is perfect, as always. Thank you for asking me to be a part of the project.

Yep a Love Song
Keys and locks.... thats how love is and I can hear it in each voice and performance. Roxylee's voice is sweet (as usual) and know that she just had to be on this one. Paul's Flute (and strings) is sweet too and and it's always good to have Scott and Neil in their solid rhythm section on this. Master Jack, of course - doing his usual mixing / negotiator / cat herding...
thought the end could have been more definite instead of a fade... but it sure didnt detract from the spirit of the song.

You can hear the individual contributions as they appear in the song, but they go so well together that you'd swear you're sitting in a theatre watching this in concert. Beautiful song, brilliantly produced. Yep, good ole Macjams comes through again! Thanks for the download.

Everything laid down so smoothly, and you worked out every little problem that popped up. I'd like to peek inside your mixing notebook. We were all blessed with your expert services and tender touch. Blessed? Yeah, that works here too. T

wow!
this is beautiful music.
real good singing, Terry - just like last time, just like each time. 8)
Roxy's vocal is so sweet, so pure!
thinking of Paul was a good idea - his contribution is so classy.
Neil's bass sounds very fluid - ooo, the flute was a good idea, too.
drums are thoughtful and add excellent embellishment.
nice job on the fade...
GOOD TUNE!

Thanks, Anne
I'm glad you enjoyed it. Yes, Roxy's harmony went down so well. I've always considered the female voice my favorite instrument, and I want to put it in all my songs. I sent this to Paul instinctively. The man has written many fabulous love songs. Neil and Scott did a wonderful job and latched onto my original feel with no problem at all. And all these fine contributions were spared from my bungling fingers on the mixing board. Good 'ol Jack came through again. Thanks for the nice words, from all of us. T

I try to keep some degree of composure when I sing, but at times slip too far into the emotions of the character who's singing and choke up. Roxy's harmonies here helped to buffer this.
