Is This For Real

Story Behind The Song

This song began as a poem that I wrote in my journal. It is one of my first songs written after making my big move from New York to Atlanta. Had a hard time finding a producer who saw the same vision as I did for the song. It took me 3 yrs to finally

1st Verse:

As I look into your eyes
I ask myself why, do I feel this way
Since we just met the other day

Could you be that special one
Or is this for you only fun, at my heart?s expense
It?s because of this, I am so tense

1st Bridge:

And I think of you every night and day
Hoping you, one day will feel the same
Asking my self will this feeling stay, or will it go away

Is this for real, the love I feel
The love I feel

2nd Verse:
You said, you were sharing with another
So why should I go any further
But, I can not explain, why my heart feels this way

I have prayed on my knees for God to take this away from me
But, it still remains as a link on my chain

2nd Bridge:
But I?m afraid to ask you how you feel
Cause then I?ll know if this is for real
What if, you don?t feel me the same


3rd Verse:

But, when I smile, I cry
Knowing this may be a lie
Cause, I have been down this road before
And my heart was thrown to the floor
So I must be brave on this day and ask you anyway
