Original Song – “Amazed”

One of my favorite songs is Paul McCartney’s ‘Maybe I’m Amazed’ and back in 1990 I wrote my own song about being “Amazed.”  It’s a soft, simple and tender little love song that expresses the warmth and comfort of being loved unconditionally, especially when we feel we don’t deserve to be loved.  For, “Every time I think of you, I find myself amazed, That you could love me, With all the mistakes I’ve made…”

I recorded my original song “Amazed” on Set 14 in 1997, and this was the second take that day. This attempt actually turned out pretty well and I’m happy to share it with you ~ enjoy! ♡ 🙂 Mark

I recorded my original song “Amazed” in two takes as demos on Set 14 in 1997, and I haven’t previously shared the 1st take, as I got lost in the middle of it. My songwriting is all about the journey, so I’m posting both takes back to back for you today, “Every time I think of you, I find myself amazed, That you could love me, With all the mistakes I’ve made…” Enjoy! ♡ 🙂 Mark

(As with all of my early songs during which I worked with my friend Gordon Olvera, I’ve shared the copyright with him for trying to give voice to my songs.  Also, emailed versions of these songs lose their chord alignment and formatting, so refer to the original post and/or the scanned lyric sheet as your guide.)
