“Real Love” – Original Song

I just posted a video of me performing one of my original songs, “Real Love.”

This song is about being in a long distance relationship, about how it is a struggle, but so worthwhile with the right person. I began writing it while in Ghana in 2012, and I finished it last year with songwriter Vaneese Thomas. This song will be on my upcoming EP.

There’s still time to contribute to my Indiegogo campaign. If you enjoy the song & would like to hear the fully produced & orchestrated studio version, please donate:

Here are the lyrics:

Verse I:
When I’m in your arms I know it’s where I should be
It’s a place that feeds my soul.
And I don’t see myself ever letting go,
Cause it’s a place I can call my own.

And I know I have wronged you with my careless words,
But somehow you always see me through.
And I know times get rough when I’m so far away,
But you can trust that I’ll always be true.

Chorus:
Cause this is love baby
Ain’t nothing less.
Yes we’ve got love baby.
We’ve passed the test.
Through all the hard times
We kept holdin on.
And I know that we’ll always be strong
Cause this is real love.

Verse II:
People do ask me why do I try
And I tell them the same each time.
I say, “When it’s the real thing, you give it your all.”
I can’t help but to treasure our bond.

Cause when I look in your eyes I find all that I need
And more than I thought I deserved,
And with your hand in mine I know we’ll always succeed,
Cause we’re willing to grow and to learn.

Chorus:
Cause this is love baby
Ain’t nothing less.
Yes we’ve got love baby.
We’ve passed the test.
Through all the hard times
We kept holdin on.
And I know that we’ll always be strong
Cause this is real love.

Much Love,
Cecily
