In a Name

Number four for FAWM 2012, this one is for Amy.  Originally written on guitar (in that incarnation, it’s a country tune), this ended up more like a song from the second act of a musical.  I can sort of hear the beginning of Somewhere in there.  It’s short and sweet and I like the final sound.  Still need to work on the lyrics to tie in the whole “in a name” theme, but generally the structure will remain the same.

In a Name (mp3, 3.2MB)

Lyrics

She whispers late at night
To restless souls asleep
The words they never hear
Her love to safely keep

If words could make love grow
A garden they would be
And what is in a name?
In her case everything

She’ll take your every barb
She’ll feel every bite
But still she finds the grace
Forgiveness is her fight

Though words may break a heart
She’ll mend your every sting
But what is in a name?
In her case everything

How can I say?
What words to find?
All I can do
Is steal every time!

But still, love, you love me.

Even though I try
It’s so hard to believe
That she could love this man
I can’t see what she sees

But still she knows the words
That span the space between
And what is in a name?
In her case everything

Oh what is in a name?
In her case everything
