From the recording "Perhaps I Loved You by Default"
This song was inspired by a conversation I had, with a friend, about the various ways we find love. In the midst of our conversation - he threw out the silly, yet profound anecdote "by default"...that sometimes we find love, by default. That concept resonated, with me, and gave birth to this song :-)
Perhaps I loved you by default - perhaps it's just your silly ways that caught my eye - perhaps I saw you in the fall - you wore that cotton dress...and stood out in the rain - I'll never be the same
Perhaps you took me by the hand - when she just up and walked away - broke my heart - now I finally understand - by your side dear - I never want to part...I'll never be the same
Chorus: Funny how life changes you - from who you were yesterday - as I gaze into the mirror now - does it seem so far away?
Bridge: Why must my heart keep wand'ring - back to yesterday and all your silly ways - well I'll just keep on pond'ring...the mysteries of this life that led me to your hand
Perhaps I loved you by default - perhaps it's just your sill ways that caught my eye - perhaps I saw you in the fall - you wore that cotton dress and stood out in the rain...
