(Today members of TuneTribe 2016 are hearing the second new song release of the year, called “You For Me” and getting an email with some behind-the-song thoughts. These songs are not available elsewhere, though I will perform them in live online shows every few weeks. Join at any time and get all the tracks released so far and going forward. The email with notes goes out on the 1st of each month.)

This month’s single release is a love song. Yayyyyy for Valentines Day-inspired romantic reflection!

Before you roll your eyes, I don’t tend to write about one-night stands, so you may be getting a love song, but this is real life, real love, friends.

I was a very young bride and have seen up-close all the trials and temptations that follow the infatuation & exhilaration stage. Like you, I’ve watched the marriages of friends fall apart for all kinds of reasons. I’m incredibly grateful to have some remarkable role models and to be married to someone who makes me laugh and makes me more than I would be without him.

That kind of love deserves a song or two, don’t you think??

Hear a clip of this new song here (& join the Tribe if you’d like to get all 12 songs):

 

You For Me
Christa Wells, February 2016

At 17, I hung everything
On a boy who needed more time
I fell again and again for strangers and friends
But not one of them was mine

I was told there is a great big sea out there
The possibilities are endless
It was easy to believe til I met you
And impossible ever since

‘Cause I’ve had my share of warm embraces
There’ve been some who can make me smile
And there may be a million beautiful faces
There’s only one you for me

Well I tried to lie to myself
But I couldn’t run when you said my name
And I see in you what I’m trying to become
In so many ways

I have seen there is an ocean full and fair
And she’s given her best to me

I’ve had my share of warm embraces
There’ve been some who could make me smile
And there may be a million beautiful faces
There’s only one you for me

And if you roll away
Like a restless wave
I will follow you to shore
If your blues and greens
Grow dark and deep
Still my heart will beat with yours

My heart will beat, my heart will beat
My heart will beat with yours
My heart will beat, my heart will beat
My heart will beat with yours

‘Cause I only want your embraces
And the ways you can make me smile
There may be a million beautiful faces
There’s only one you for me
There is one you for me
