Clock strikes upon the hour
And the sun begins to fade
Still enough time to figure out
How to chase my blues away

    I want to write this song about someone is in love with a person but when I see someone I know I would write a love letter to Ben then he can explain that he feels about me because me and him are dating on Valentine’s Day, and I want to write that song that has to do with music and writing I have couple piano sheets online and I can print them out and make it into a record it’s fun and catchy beat. But it’s fun to dance to it’s my moms favorite.

    When I had my songwriting ideas to come up with the theme for this song but this song is personal and so it reminds that relationship would be difficult to be in the place of your heart and faith. But this song is such a soulful song it’s so good it makes me wanna dance and have a great time.
