In March of 2006, my wife was off chaperoning a Disneyland trip with my son and his Yuma High Choralair group and they had left me at home with the three girls. The girls had gone to bed and I was having trouble sleeping. I had to play softly so as not to wake up the girls, but I felt the need to sit at the piano again and sort out some feelings. I had already created a song for Nicole long ago, but she teased me that it was not complete because I could never give it lyrics. It occurred to me that much of our relationship is like that song – I have trouble expressing my feelings in words, but my feelings and emotions are still present and very real. I wanted to make sure that she knew how I felt. My hope is that this and other songs can help to release some feelings that otherwise might not get expressed. I hope every listener can hear some fraction of what I feel.
Just knowing that you believe in me, there's nothing I can't do...
Maybe You Can Hear What I Feel
By Michael D. Squires
Deep into the night, I sit here. Tapping on these keys, I live here. The words I want to say, I can’t find. Can’t get them from my heart, to my mind.
I can’t describe my love, completely. Can’t put it into words, so neatly. But maybe with some chords behind them, It might be easier to find them. And then maybe you can hear what I feel…
I need you to need me the way I need you. Just knowing you believe in me, there’s nothing I can’t do. The world with its honors just can not compare. In all we accomplish, it’s your love that brought us there. I hope that you can hear what I feel.
It’s difficult to say what I feel But the emotions deep within are real. I don’t know how to be more clear; You have to know my heart’s sincere. Maybe you can hear what I feel…
I need you to need me the way I need you. Just knowing you believe in me, there’s nothing I can’t do. The world with its honors just can not compare. In all we accomplish, it’s your love that brought us there. And maybe you can hear what I feel.
