about

A month or so ago, I was hired to write a song. Angela emailed me and said that her boyfriend Chris was leaving and, as much as she loved him and as much as it hurt to let him go, she knew she couldn't stand in the way of him realizing his dream. She said she wanted to gift him a song because music was so important to him. As I listened to her tell me the story of how they met, the circumstances that would keep them apart and, really, just why she loved him, I found myself in tears. It was clear that she wanted him to find his happiness above all else; even her feelings. I'm finding it a difficult thing to explain but, what I felt from her was so pure and so selfless. I can't speak for her but it said to me, "I love who you are and taking your freedom to find what you want would change who you are. I won't do that.". It was a beautiful and heart-wrenching thing to write about. I cried several times in the process. Every word of the song is taken from something personal she shared with me. Special thanks to Mack Damon for affording me some time in the studio to record a quick version of it to share with you. It was my privilege to write it and I hope Angela and Chris are both very blessed wherever life takes them.

"If you love a flower, don’t pick it up.
Because if you pick it up it dies
and it ceases to be what you love.
So if you love a flower, let it be.
Love is not about possession.
Love is about appreciation." - Osho

about

Laura Marie San Antonio, Texas

Now the reason we're here
Every man, every woman
Is to help each other
Stand by each other
When love walks in the room
Everybody stand up
Oh it's good, good good
Say I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you - The Pretenders

At some point in my life, I heard this song and decided (before I knew I decided) that my life purpose was to send a "message of love". Be <3

Track Name: Reason To Stay
Reason To Stay

Remember when I met you
How you tried to get through
I was on the run
Then your love found me

So, if you have to go now
I know I’ll find you somehow
If you need to know
Where your heart should be
Go and see

Fly away and find your answer
You have my heart forever after
But, I won’t place it in your way
So, go find your reason to stay

I know I need the same thing
To find what I am seeking
The desires of my heart
And if we’re meant to be

So, I’ll find the strength to let go
And pray you find your way home
And, if you find your reason inside of me
You’ll know where I’ll be

Fly away and find your answer
You have my heart forever after
But, I won’t place it in your way
So, go find your reason

You’ll stay in my heart
Just the way that you are
You’ve shown me what’s real
You’re precious to me

Fly away and find your answer
You have my heart forever after
But, I won’t place it in your way
So, go find your reason

Fly away, find your answer
You have my heart forever after
But, I won’t place it in your way
So, go find your reason
I hope I’m your reason to stay
