All the More

Hi there.  No, I'm not home from camp yet.  But I have a fancy way of posting ahead of time.  Tricked ya.  Magic.  :) 

After we recorded My Best Remedy, Toby captured this little clip of a brand new song and I just wanted to share it with you to maybe brighten your day, 'cause it's about love.  It's a little Irish feeling, and no, I'm not Irish, not even a little.  Still...the Irish have a way with lilting melodies that's so sweet.  This song began when our friend Dale Baker (www.dalebakerdrummer.com) ran the Nashville marathon and actually stopped for Starbucks coffee along the way!!!  I'm not kidding.  When I heard that, I told Toby to tell him we loved him all the more for doing such a crazy thing.  That phrase then kept running through my brain, and I thought of how I fell for Toby for reasons that are obvious to anyone who meets him...but it's those other things--quirky things, great things he's unaware of in himself, even flawed things? that really make me love him that much more.  Thus, the title "All the More."  I hope you like where it's going. 

Clear as the cloudless sky/were the countless reasons that I fell/in love with a boy from a small town that I'd never heard of/It was first the great span of your grin/that caught me and reeled me in/Not the ways you tried but the strengths you were unaware of

All the more/all the more/I have loved you all the more/For the many things you don't realize you do/I have loved you all the more
