My Unsung Hero Words & Music by DeDe Wedekind.
Dedicated to All the US Troops/First Responders, and others who serve around the world.

Verse 1: I wake up in the morning
I know it'll be all right
You're lying here next to me
And held me all thru the night

You whisper softly to me
As I open up my eyes
You know you're my everything
Brighter than the morning light...

Prechorus: You're the one I always wanted
My lover and my best friend
And I want to take some time to let you know
Chorus: You're my unsung hero,
My guiding light,
You know I can count on you
To see me through my darkest night

You're one in a million
Larger than life,
So happy you're mine
Proud to be your wife
You're my unsung hero.

Verse 2: I come home in the evenin
And I know it'll be a good night
Cause when my life gets crazy
You make everything all right.

No worries bout tomorrow
With you by my side today
And when my world starts to crumble
You carry me, all the way.

Prechorus: You're the one I always wanted
My lover and my best friend
And I want to take some time just to say,
Chorus: You're my unsung hero,
My guiding light,
You know I can count on you
To see me through my darkest night

You're one in a million
Larger than life,
So happy you're mine
Proud to be your wife
You're my unsung hero...
You're my unsung hero.


Very nice voice and the balance and production are exceptional. Extremely well-recorded and I love the tones on all the backing instruments, too. Someone definitely took the time to put his together in a smooth package, and it shows.

DeDe evokes the same appreciation that I have for Karen Carpenter in that they both intertwine with maximum synergism the aspects of lyrics, vocal presentation, instrumentation and subject matter. A close third of these three would be K.D. Lang and her wonderful "Constant Cravings".
Three incredible recording artist! Bravo, DeDe!

DeDe has found a unique, original and clever way to say what every loved one wants to hear.
