I was asked by a friend whose a helluva player but has trouble writing lyrics, if I'd write a song so he can sing it for his wife on the day his daughter, Irma is to be born.
He gave me all the nuances of he and her (3 pages worth) and I went to town writing.
He especially wanted me to mention her favorite colors (green and yellow) her favorite movies (The Fault in our Stars) and the fact that she is white, he is Hispanic and her family....not very happy. I tried to fit it all in and make this ballad as "happy" as I could.

He was satisfied with the lyrics and promises to post the song when Irma is born!

Hope you like it.


One and One is Three

V1
How can I explain what's in my heart, right now?
When I don't know how to say,
what my soul tries to convey,
'cause I never felt this way,
before?

V2
Before you came, only pain could make my tears flow.
So how do I know
why they're falling now?
Our baby's crying out,
for a special kinda love,
we made this child out of...

Pre chorus
So how can I see the fault in your stars,
if I can't get past the one's in your eyes?
Why do the spices in your charms
taste so good to me at night?
How can I give you all the love in my heart,
When you gave me all this heart will ever need?

Chorus
You made everything I see,
you say one and one is three,
that equals everything,
it means everything,
Only Everything
to me.


V3
Can you recall the day I first saw your face?
You tried to hide a stain,
that found its way,
on the fray
of your beautiful blue dress?

Now a kiss, not on your lips,
but on your forehead.
If I want some lovin,
I turn the lighthouse on,
after the Pirate's have all gone
out to sea.


So how can I see the fault in your stars,
if I can't get past the one's in your eyes?
Why do the spices in your charms
taste so good to me at night?
How can I give you all the love in my heart,
When you've given all this heart will ever need?

Chorus
You made me everything I see,
you say one and one is three,

...that equals everything,
that means everything,
Only Everything....
to me.

Bridge

Your milk, white skin,
and freckled face,
your colors mixed,
"is that orange I taste"
when I kissed you lips,
for the very first time?

Yellow and Green
Brown and White,
combining colors
so that we might find
the light so that our child
can see.....

That one and one is three.

Solo

Pre chorus

So how can I see the fault in your stars,
if I can't get past the one's in your eyes?
Why do the spices in your charms
taste so good to me at night?
How can I give you all the love in my heart,
When you've given all this heart will ever need?

Chorus
You made me everything I see,
you say one and one is three,

...that equals everything,
that means everything,
Only Everything
to me.

You mean everything,
that means everything,
Only Everything,
to me.
