about

During FAWM, Alex had said he wanted to collaborate with me, but I had a lot going on and although I really wanted to, I wasn't sure I would have time... But the last Saturday of February, I woke up and picked up my acoustic 12 string guitar to relax and start my day, and within 20 minutes I had this song. I recorded everything and sent it over. Alex came up with a wonderful set of lyrics and his rich baritone voice really filled it in nicely. It is such a wonderful love song to his wife - just beautiful... :)

Although he doesn't have any links online to his music, Alex is an amazingly prolific songwriter! He ended up writing well over 70 songs!! They included a complete set of songs based on each letter of the alphabet. Incredible!

lyrics

in the winter's cold
In the midst of snow
even in the chill
there's one thing I'm glad to know
you're still here with me
blessing me with love
you are such a wonder
a true gift from up above

and now that it's dark
and there isn't a cloud in the sky
what I'd like to do
is sit and watch the northern lights with you
sit and watch the northern lights with you

days will come and go
winters change to spring
and in the blooms
there's one thing I'm glad to know
you're still here with me
fresh like a blooming flower
you are such a wonder
I love you more each hour

and now that it's dark
and there isn't a cloud in the sky
what I'd like to do
is sit and watch the northern lights with you
sit and watch the northern lights with you

season after season changes
our children grow and grow
as we keep turning life's pages
i'm so glad that you love me so

summer comes and goes
so does autumn too
as the year rolls by
my love for you stays ever true
I'm glad you're with me
for the rest of life
I love you forever
My most precious, beautiful wife
My most precious, beautiful wife
My most precious, beautiful wife

about

ZeCoop Kalamazoo, Michigan

I love playing music and keep learning new instruments. My songs are in a wide range of styles, from indie-rock to surf, to folk to rock to electronic... I never know. I record at home in a studio I put together in a spare room. I work (via the web) with a lot of vocal/lyric collaborators from all over the world.
