“The Reason I’m Here”

Musically, it’s a waltz.

Lyrically, it’s a love song, with two verses, a chorus and a bridge: “I know how it might seem, but you’re still the reason I need to believe.” (As true now as it was then.)

Guitaristically, I play it fingerstyle, in dropped-D tuning and with a capo at the first fret. (I think the instrumental introduction does an especially good job of setting the mood of the song, if I do say so myself.)

I recorded “The Reason I’m Here” in 1988 and placed it as the third track on my first album, Anytime. (See my post of April 1, 2012 for more on Anytime.)

I wrote this song sometime between March, 1985 and April, 1986.

    I highly recommend the Anytime CD…a great variety of songs with meaningful messages and some fun humor to make you smile… a great one to kick back to and relax with — enjoying being in the musical moment…
