Here is a song I wrote a few years ago and never got around to sharing, either here or on soundcloud.com. So here it is. -

Forever and a Light Year by Jeff Gilpin


October 24, 2019


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~




You [G]see me in the morning


[CMaj7]Looking worse for wear


[D]What hair’s left is all tangled


My [C]smile’s in disrepair


I can [G]clean myself up a little


A little [CMaj7]better than I look now


Through [D]years and years of TLC


I’ve [C]made it here some [D]how


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


But when I [Em]see you


And I [C]see your look of love


The [D]reason why every day


I have to [C]thank the God a[D]bove


This [Em]vision of beauty


I see every [C]morning when I rise


I could [D]spend forever and a [C]light year


Looking into your [G]eyes



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


I [G]know you have your worries


And that you [CMaj7]think you’re getting old


Like [D]noticing certain little pains


When the [C]nights start turning cold


I’m [G]sorry to have to tell you


That you’re [CMaj7]searching a little much


To [D]see what I could never find


In the [C]one I love so [D]much


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


‘Cause when I [Em]see you


And I [C]see your look of love


The [D]reason why every day


I have to [C]thank the God a[D]bove


This [Em]vision of beauty


I see every [C]morning when I rise


I could [D]spend forever and a [C]light year


Looking into your [G]eyes

Re: Forever and a Light Year

Wow!!! I just gave it a listen, first impression....so tender, so emotional, so full of love. Your performance almost brought me to tears...your voice and guitar playing are brilliant. Your words are terrific....and you have a lovely wife, just like me. Enjoy the Christmas season and have a long happy life together.
