I've got a red paper heart and I'm writing Your name down on it I'd give it to ya, but I'm afraid that You'd disregard it I saw you walking down by the water I couldn't take my eyes off of you I had to know just what to call you I couldn't bear not to know I've got a red paper heart and I'm writing Your name down on it I'd give it to ya, but I'm afraid that You'd disregard it I caught up to where you were walking I didn't know what to say But you spoke first, ever so sweetly You asked me, "What's your name?" I've got a red paper heart and I'm writing Your name down on it I'd give it to ya, but I'm afraid that You'd disregard it It's okay to be a hopeless romantic Falling in love can be a wee bit frantic It's okay to be a hopeless romantic Falling in love can be a wee bit frantic I've got a red paper heart and I'm writing Your name down on it I'd give it to ya, but I'm afraid that You'd disregard it I've got a red paper heart and I'm writing Your name down on it I'd give it to ya, but I'm afraid that You'd disregard it

City Folks 03:36
Take a train at the same time I do it every morning Work that job until dark So we can keep the lights on I wish that we could be Just like those folks from the city I dream about the things they do a And their different way of living Dress up and go out It’s the perfect kind of evening On the town, spent with you We could catch a late-night picture I wish that we could be Just like those folks from the city I dream about the things they do a And their different way of living Saturday, wake up slow In our studio apartment Watch the rain from a cafe Dream of moving to the country I wish that we could be Just like those folks from the city I dream about the things they do a And their different way of living I wish that we could be Just like those folks from the city I dream about the things they do a And their different way of living

Airport Song 03:55
We're up before the dawn Driving southbound towards the city Her bags are in the back seat It seems like we don't have a single thing to say 'Cause she's leaving on a plane and it'll take her far away I can't think of a way to make her stay I'll be counting down the days 'Til she'll be back in my arms I'll be counting down the days 'Til she'll be back in my arms We're pulling up to the curb There are people all around We share a long embrace It feels like there's already distance in between 'Cause she's leaving on a plane and it'll take her far away I can't think of a way to make her stay I'll be counting down the days 'Til she'll be back in my arms I'll be counting down the days 'Til she'll be back in my arms

I've been trying to find The perfect way to say what's on my mind You're the only reason I get Hung up on the words every time, I lose my mind I may never find the words to say How my love for you will never fade away I'll be here for you willing and able It's a mystery Why you give your love away to me But you speak straight to my heart Every time you land that kiss upon these lips I may never find the words to say How my love for you will never fade away I'll be here for you willing and able Take my hand as we walk through this life My love, I need you by my side I hope you'll need me too Take my hand as we walk through this life My love, I need you by my side I hope you'll need me too I may never find the words to say How my love for you will never fade away I'll be here for you willing and able

Chelue 06:04
I was young and falling hard For a girl named Chelue Her gentle heart and her restless soul She was the light of my world We’d go walking in that summer heat Hand in hand Past the tree line to that railroad bridge Where we could be alone Summer passed like it always does I got a job, you went to school We went steady like most kids do Fell in love for the very first time We’d go dancing on Friday nights Listen to the band I’d sing you love songs and you just laughed, But that was okay We got married in ‘39 I remember like it was yesterday I worked that morning and you were mad But we both laugh about it now We’d go driving on Sunday afternoons With the windows down Past the city and the highway signs Where we could be free Looking back on what we had Oh my dear, I wouldn’t change a thing Memories, they might come and go But our love, it stays the same We’ll be together for the rest of our lives Until that fateful day When one of us is called up To the other side Carry the light deep in your heart Don't let it fade away Don’t cry love, cause I promise you this — I'll be waiting there, waiting there I will always, always I will always love you I will always, always I will always love you

about

All These Years is a collection of snapshots capturing the different ways love knits our stories together. The project starts with the early spark of two hearts being drawn to each other and ends with a tribute to a life-long commitment. Some of these songs are based on real life and some are imagined, but they all share the common thread of celebrating love in its many forms.
