Hopelessly in Love

Track #7 of Umm…

This is a love song I wrote for Wendi in 1993. Accompaniment consists of a virtual keyboard, drums, bass, celesta and strings.


The moon is shining intently
Upon my pillow tonight
But the scene in my head
Is not green, blue or red
In moonlight it’s all black and white
I lie here thinking about you
Thanking God for the love that we share
What a colorful way to finish my day
Remembering my love in a prayer

My heart is dripping with honey
My soul is melting with love
Through passing years we’ve shared joy and tears
And I’ve loved you since before we said “I do”
And all of man’s earthly wisdom
Can’t explain my feelings for you
But this I know as through life I go
That I’m hopelessly in love with you

The early years were uncertain
And filled with pain and despair
But the Lord started healing and beauty revealing
The beauty that always was there
My prayer is that love could conquer
All the sadness, hurting and fear
That are bound to return until people learn
To be faithful year after year

My heart is dripping with honey
My soul is melting with love
Through passing years we’ve shared joy and tears
And I’ve loved you since before we said “I do”
And all of man’s earthly wisdom
Can’t explain my feelings for you
But this I know as through life I go
That I’m hopelessly in love with you

But this I know as through life I go
That I’m hopelessly in love with you
Hopelessly in love with you
