Original Song – “In A Song”

In A Song is a simple, dreamy, whimsical little song that reminds me of watching clouds floating by on a summer day.  As a dreamer, I’m always pondering something in my mind and I recall the words, “I was thinkin’ of my life and where it has gone” came to mind.  In finishing that thought, I created a scenario of one who has lived a long life, looking back on their journey and describing a life lived with love.  I’ve traveled 22 years down life’s path since writing this song and I hope when I look back at the end of this journey, that I, too, can still say, “And I wrote down this song, just for you, It’s quite simple and short, But it comes from the heart, And I swear every word is true, I love you, yes I do.”

~~~~~~~~~~

“In A Song” is from Set 15 that I recorded back in the mid-90s, and is a short, tender love song about viewing a relationship within the context of a song, “I was thinkin’ of my life, And where it has gone, And my thoughts turned to you, In a song…My life with you in a song” Enjoy! ♡ 🙂 Mark

  1. Mark,

    What a beautiful song playing now on WMDJ. I apologize for not letting you know that earlier.

    I feel so much love coming from this song. A love of God or someone you are united with in this world, I guess it would be up to the listeners opinion.

    In my humble opinion, it is our professing our love of God and letting Him know how much we love Him in return. We know His love is unconditional, therefore, we walk this road called life until Angel’s lead us home.

    The line “And the years have been very good to us” I think shows how wonderful and bountiful our lives are due to God’s love. Others may see that differently and you may have meant it differently, but, as you and I both know music is always open to interpretation.

    Thank you & God bless you for this beautiful new addition to WMDJ, I have been following doctors orders and listening to it a LOT these days.

    With Love as a Sister in Christ,
    Jade

  2. Jade,

    Thank you very much for your beautiful comments and insights concerning the songs playing on WMDJ! ♥ I’ve been busy trying to get my ‘Sam the Tugboat’ blog ready for going public and I finally accomplished that yesterday! I wanted children to have an opportunity to read about Sam’s world and his many adventures!

    I hope you’re healing well and following your Dr.’s orders to rest and stay off your feet ~ you have to take care of yourself before you can take care of anyone else! 🙂

    Love in Christ!

    Mark

    • Mark,

      I am so sorry that I have taken so long to reply to you. It has been difficult to get to my computer and I have trouble using my ‘smartphone’. This song is playing now on WMDJ.

      I would love to buy a copy of ‘Sam the Tugboat’ for my grandson, where do I go?

      With much love in Christ,

      Jade

  3. Jade,

    Don’t ever feel bad about not getting back to me or not commenting on my songs – I know they’re always playing on WMDJ! ♥ Your healing is your only task, and after that, only your family matters during this period of time!

    Perhaps ‘Sam the Tugboat’ will be published and for sale one day, but for now it’s free to everyone to read as I have converted it to a public blog for everyone to access! 🙂 Tonight I did the same for ‘Jonathan’s Dream (An Adventure Novel)’ found at jonathansamazingadventures.com so everyone can read it, too!

    Cheers!

    Mark
