Original Song – “Love You So”

Love You So is a fast-paced and joyful song about love, reunions and second chances.  The song tells the fictional story of a woman who had left for whatever reason and now plans to come home.  The guy wakes up to a brand new day with the realization that today’s the day as he prepares to drive to the airport to meet her for their reunion.  The song speaks to changed hearts, second chances, new beginnings, fresh starts and changed perceptions – with both realizing while they were apart that something was missing from their lives – and their future together would be much better than their lives were apart!  “Stay with me baby, Forever more, I don’t want you ever, Walkin’ out the door, And leave me standin’, Here all alone, I’m so glad that, You’ve come back home, And you said that you love me too…”

I recorded my original song “Love You So” in two takes on Set 3 in 1996, and as each take turned out well I’ll share them both with you today. The song speaks of a woman who has decided to return home and the excitement of the reunion that follows ~ with both realizing they are so much more together than they were apart. Enjoy! ♡ 🙂 Mark

  1. Mark, this song hit home for me … I am so sorry it took me so long to respond as well as not commenting on your other songs that are now on WMDJ.
    “I know that my days are numbered and few …” Thank you for making my days so much more pleasant just by knowing you. I believe we are all destined to meet those whom we meet in life. There is a Season for everything. I am glad you are a part of my “Dash” … (referring to the line between the date of birth and date of death on a tombstone. The Dash is the life lived in between those dates).
    With much love in Christ, Jade

  2. Jade,

    I’m so happy to be a part of your ‘dash’ ~ but despite your current health battle there’s no need to reference tombstones! Your strength displayed in making your comment tells me you still have the will to fight on, despite the odds and seriousness of your condition. The fact you haven’t regularly commented on WMDJ’s latest songs is of no concern, as we’re both aware of our daily DMs behind the scenes. Your health and healing is my only concern for you, and I pray that God’s will and mercy will heal you and put you back on the road to recovery!

    Love in Christ!

    Mark
