Song Description

This is a happy,"Atta boy" tune written for someone, anyone, who has gone through some tough or challenging times, made it through and is back on track to a good life.

Story Behind the Song

I wrote this for a friend who I hadn't seen in a while. The last time we saw each other they were in a pretty bad place, emotionally and physically. When I heard they had turned things around and I wrote this to kind of congratulate them or something.

Lyrics

I Can Tell
©J. D. Carroll
Creative Ventures Music

I overheard some words about you.
It sounded like you found a reason.
I could hardly believe that was true,
you were never one
for believing in reason.

So I stopped by to see for myself
If what I heard really was true
and looking at you

I Can Tell by the sparkle in your eyes
that things are going better.
It's written all over that fabulous smile
Everything?s coming together.

You never seemed to need a plan
Your life just rolled right on through
Now I hear that you're making plans
and doing all the things you said you could do

So I had to stop by to see
If what I heard really was true.
Looking at you.

I Can Tell by the sparkle in your eyes
that things are going better.
It's written all over that fabulous smile
Everything's coming together.

You always seemed to have good luck
I guess an angel smiled down on you.
But this is much more than a matter of luck,
you were always one
who did as you wanted to.

So I had to stop by to see
If it really was true
and looking at you.

I Can Tell by the sparkle in your eyes
that things are going better.
It's written all over that fabulous smile
Everything?s coming together.

Hard times are still on my mind,
I recall when they had you down.
When I heard you were back on your feet
I smiled quietly
and made sure I came around.

Yes, I rushed right over to see
if what I wanted to believe was true
and looking at you

I Can Tell by the sparkle in your eyes
that things are going better.
It's written all over that fabulous smile
Everything?s coming together.
