A gentle orchestral song about being thankful for the support of a loved one.


You’re my rock when seas are choppy
You’re my pillow when times are hard
You’re my ace of all the diamonds
When life deals the joker card.

You’re the joy to all my sadness
In the darkness you’re the light.
You’re my first thought in the morning
And my last thought late at night.

You’re sweet when things are sour
You’re the ruby in the sand.
You’re the snowdrop reaching upwards
Pushing through a frosty land.

You’re my lady of the lantern
Dressing wounds after the fight.
You’re my first thought in the morning
And my last thought late at night.

And when the clouds are drawing in
You keep me safe from harm.
Among the darkest times of trial
My compass through the storm.

You’re the lifeboat in the ocean
Take my hand til I’m found
Hold the shield around my heart
Safe on upper ground.

You could have left me way behind
I was smitten at first sight.
You're the first thing in the morning
And my last thought late at night.

Collaborating with other singers and musicians the music is emotional, reflective, joyful, poppy, and frequently dark. ... more
