Custom Song: "You to Me, Me to You"

I've written custom songs for couples who want to express themselves to each other or tell their story at an event (like a wedding). After an interview, I craft a lyric (and a melody), distilling their entire romance into a three-minute song. Here's an example.

Fred and Susan met while they were waiting for the Elevated Train in Chicago. They went through a lot together, and eventually, both became committed Christians. Super romantic! This is how I turned it into a song lyric.

YOU TO ME / ME TO YOU

I fell in love
With the city of Chicago
‘Cause so many other loves
Had disappointed me
Spent my days
Working late into the evenings
Thinking this was what my life
Was always gonna be

    And I didn’t even know your name
    Didn’t know how fast my life would change
    With every moment, every move
    God was leading you to me
    And leading me to you

When I saw you
Across the crowded platform
Waiting for the L
You caught me by surprise
Just one look
And I wanted to be near you
Felt like I could see the real you
The kindness in your eyes

(Repeat Chorus)

Back then we didn’t even know the Lord
But looking back it’s plain to see
He had a plan for a three-cord strand
Jesus, you and me

    And we didn’t even know His name
    Didn’t know how fast our lives would change
    With every moment, every move
    God was leading you to me
    And leading me to you
    God keeps leading us to Him
    With every move
    God keeps leading you to me
    And leading me to you
