Little Things

Story Behind The Song

I wrote this song over several settings. The melody was created on the piano. I had my wife write down some thoughts which became the bridge and part of verse 2. I got the idea for the song sitting with my wife at a car dealership waiting for a Oil change. She was reading some women's magazines and they are full of tips about love. Hey guys, maybe we can find some tips there - just a thought.

Song Description

It's the little things in a marriage that can keep a flame burning, or can blow it out. I think we as men, need to become experts in the little things. Remember that women react with feelings, and it is the little things that mean so much. It's the little things, that I didn't do, now I'm gonna do.

Verse 1
Honey I, realize,
it is the little things, that mean so much
Like a flower when, you don't expect it,
A call out of the blue, to say - I love you
It's the little things, like a lunch date,
a walk in the park, hugging on the front porch swing
Pre Chorus
It's those little things, that I didn't do,
now I'm gonna do, for you.

Chorus
I'm sorry for, all the little things, 
I didn't do, for you
It's those little things, that make you feel,
like a woman in love, should
It's those little things, simple little things
That say your, the greatest thing
It's those little things, that I didn't do,
now I'm gonna do, for you.

Verse 2
I'm sorry for, not being there,
when you needed me, I was busy at work
But tomorrow is, a brand new day,
so I'm gonna walk, in a brand new way
I lost sight of, the important thing,
like why I wear, this wedding ring
Pre Chorus
It's those little things, that I didn't do,
now I'm gonna do, for you.

Bridge (Talking)
Like holding your hand 
and showing you how much I love you.
Telling you how beautiful you are 
with the sunlight shining in your hair.
Letting you know I need you by my side
without your love a part of me would die.
I didn't mean to take our love for granted
thinking you would always be there.
Not realizing I needed to tell you,
that I need you in my life to share.
Without you there is no me
and that's not the way I want it to be.
I want you forever and always,
standing by my side.
