Original Song – “Heart and Soul”

Heart and Soul is one of the many love songs I’ve written in an attempt to capture the essence of what love is all about.  Love is such a complex and all-consuming topic, yet at the same time very basic and elemental.  Love ranges from God’s love for us, to romantic love between two hearts, to love for one’s fellow man.  Rarely has such a simple word been used to describe such a wide range and scope of activities.  I wrote this song after four lines popped into my head – “If I could fly, High in the sky with, Birds on a wing, Flying so high…” and it continues in a single verse with the lines, “…If I could sing, Songs from the heavens, I’d sing for you, A simple love song…”


Heart and Soul is another song from Set 15, and is a short, soft and tender little love song. I recorded this song three times in total, with the first two accompanied with my guitar, and on the third take I decided to try and do it a cappella. I decided to post the a cappella version, as for the most part it worked ~ despite a couple of octave transitions that were a little bit rough ~ but the song’s melody is clear enough! Enjoy! ♡ 🙂 Mark
