|Lyrics:||The full moon was shinin' on our names |
Carved in that willow tree
That august night, her green eyes danced
Filled with mystery
The diamond sparkled in a velvet box
As I held my breath
She couldn't speak, touched my cheek
And her smile told me yes
It's a BEAUTIFUL THING
So perfect when she's next to me
A BEAUTIFUL THING
Each moment is a masterpiece
It all comes down to love
I can’t get enough of
A BEAUTIFUL THING
Today my mind's on the baby and bills
No time for us to play
But when I see her in that new sun dress
Feels like our first date
Our son starts cryin', first tooth comin' in
We gotta stay at home
It's pizza tonight, but that's alright
This is where I belong
I wouldn't take a million dollars for the life I have
Every day I get to be her husband and a dad

Said Dave: "I enjoy making a living making music as there is something always new to learn. If you know one instrument, you can learn another. If you know how to engineer one style, you can always learn another. My main question I ask myself when writing and making music is "what gives you goosebumps". The mechanics of songwriting and engineering can get quite technical, however at the end of the day its what makes you feel something."
