Original Song – “When Will You Begin”

When Will You Begin is a tender and heartfelt song about love, commitment and affirmation, that speaks to communicating the totality and depth of love one holds for another.  Words and actions should harmonize together within a beautiful melody, and when they don’t it creates an air of doubt and uncertainty.  The true nature of love is complementary – where thoughts, feelings, words, deeds, actions, choices, decisions, commitment, affirmation and desire all harmonize in a single message that communicates the true purity, depth and enduring nature of love… “If you could dream a thousand dreams, Would they be with me, If a dream could last forever, I’d like to spend that time with you…”

I recorded my original song “When Will you Begin” as a demo on Set 7 in 1996, and these two takes complete the set.  The song speaks of love and commitment, “If you could dream a thousand dreams, Would they be with me, If a dream could last forever, I’d like to spend that time with you…”  Enjoy! ♡ 🙂 Mark
