There is a Heartbeat

there’s a heartbeat in those keys you were playing
through these walls this lovesong is reverbing
as you were sitting by the old piano
purest of love sings at its echo
this familiar tune still feels so near
a nostalgia i hold so dear

there’s a heartbeat in the keys you were playing
the highs and lows valleying and peaking
through the battles we’ve fought
you’ve always thought
where trials are audacious
life remains more melodious


Us (Old Piano Version)

We sat by an old piano, around 20 years old, slightly out-of-tune and sounding antiquated. We can only look forward to reaching years beyond this old piano while singing and recording. All I know, both of us are in this journey together and will count anniversaries together. And this song is about us.

Live happily with the woman you love through all the meaningless days of life that God has given you under the sun. The wife God gives you is your reward for all your earthly toil. – Ecclesiastes 9:9 NLT


Years have passed with us waiting
Humming songs through the nights we were yearning
This sober melody won’t make us slumber
Until we find our hearts inclining for each other

Years have passed with us naive
Even when motionless those times seemed
Battling through our restlessness
Unaware we let our wounds make us through

If it were not for love
If it were not for pain
Our eyes may have been dimmed
By the friction of our colliding souls
