Till You -- Lyrics

I’ve been so many places; traveled down some roads -- Mixed with a thousand faces where the Ganges overflowed. I've crossed majestic mountains; walked some valleys too -- Tossed coins into fountains, but I never saw them -- till you. I've traveled endless highways; left countless roads behind -- Walked along some byways that still linger on my mind. I've come back home from St. Tropaz; walked the beach at Malibu. I lived awhile in Monterrey, but I never saw them -- till you. (Bridge) Till you I never saw the sunset on Biscayne. Till you I never heard a gentle summer rain. I’ve been so many places I’d like to go back to But only if you come (to/with) me and make them all come true. I've stood beneath the tower when Big Ben chimed at noon. I've whiled away some hours under a great big Texas moon. I spent some time at Waikiki; roamed the wilds of Timbuktu. I've sailed on all the seven seas, but I never saw them -- till you. (Instrumental break) (Repeat bridge)

    Thanks Joseph. This was put to music by a friend of mine... Many of my writes are closet song lyrics. I have never really been serious about trying to take them to market... I fear the fun of writing would be lost. I'm glad I never had to depend on writing for a living. Thanks for the comments..... Jake

    This one reminds me of two different songs I have heard in my lifetime but using your own experiences for the lyrics. Very nice!

    It sounds a bit like the water receding back into it's ocean if you ask me, a deep blue ocean with many nuances in the end, the dam bursts and we get wet, enjoyed your beauty John, refreshing and healing, love and light vie thank you for your kind visit.xxx

    Hmmm... I thought I'd already read this one, recently... In any case, Jake, this is very nice (perhaps even more so with a second reading) Terry (it would be nice to hear it put to music)
