Description
Short Song Description:
A quaint love song.
Story Behind the Song:
Tommy's lyrics were culled from conversations with mutual friend Betty Pellerito. Tommy said he felt like it should have a country rock feel, but this came out more like Tom Petty-meets-Neil Young.

(CHORUS)
How did you know, I needed you so?
How did you know, I needed you so?

(VERSE)
How this all started on that fateful day,
Looking oh so colorful in your beret,
Me trying to smile, and you walking the other way,
Me silently hoping you'd turn back my way.

(VERSE)
I only felt the sweetness and the light,
From the day you walked into my life,
When I imagine I'm in your arms, you holdin' me tight,
You are my angel baby, with that smile so bright.

(CHORUS)

(BRIDGE)
Now it's my turn to be your superhero and keep you from harm'?s way.
It'd be my job to see that you were safe and warm each day.
This love, we two could make it last forever,
And ever and ever.

(VERSE)
Before we got close, could you feel the pain?
Could you see my tears through the wind and rain?
The unrighteous times for me were unexplained.
My forlorn life has now completely changed.

(CHORUS 2x)
