Beautiful To Me. A Love Letter.

January 30th, 2018

Myself and a wonderful group of people called The Magic Project are releasing a special video today.  It is a music video of sorts, I suppose, but not a conventional music video like we are all used to.  Rather this is a joint venture to show the Beauty of people.  All People.  And this song and video are both primarily a message from me to everyone that my concerts are open to all with love in their hearts.

I wrote the song Beautiful to Me with a pal Tawgs Salter in 2016.  I have written a few tunes with Tawgs and I explained to him that I wanted to write a song in response to some legislation that was recently tabled in a US targeted directly at members of the LGBTQIA2S+ community. What would become known as “the bathroom bill” seemed so regressive to me and so unnecessarily and unfairly aimed at a part of our population that I felt I needed to make a statement of some kind in their defence.  I suppose I just wanted the LGBTQIA2S+ community and everyone else to know, that I just want people to be themselves.  Their whole selves.  I want everyone to feel comfortable and be their happiest selves, and whatever gender, sexual preference, colour, race, or creed is welcomed and encouraged as far as I’m concerned.

If this video speaks to you as it does to me, I encourage you to share it as much as you like. There’s never too much Love in the world.

Smile
I wanna see you smile
Anytime
Your eyes meet mine
My song for you
Is be Easy and True
I’ll be yours
If you wanna be mine

My marquee is a Welcome sign
My arms and doors are open wide

Come one Come all
Come Big and Small
Let all the colours of the rainbow fly
Bring the fellas and the girls
And the dreamers of the world
And you can let your own light shine
I’ll tell you right from the start
If you’ve got Love in your Heart
You got everything I need to see
You’re Beautiful To Me

Time, don’t waste your time
Trying to hide
What you got inside
‘Cause I want you
I want all of you
My heart is yours
If yours is mine

My marquee is a Welcome sign
My arms and doors are open wide

So Come one Come all
Come Big and Small
Let all the colours of the rainbow fly
Bring the fellas and the girls
And the dreamers of the world
And you can let your own light shine
I’ll tell you right from the start
If you’ve got Love in your Heart
You got everything I need to see
You’re Beautiful To Me

I think about the lost and lonely
I think of all nights
We wouldn’t walk alone if only
We could love like stars can shine

Come one Come all
Come Big and Small
Let all the colours of the rainbow fly
Bring the fellas and the girls
And the dreamers of the world
And you can let your own light shine
I’ll tell you right from the start
If you’ve got Love in your Heart
You got everything I need to see
You’re Beautiful To Me

Spread the Love.

Cheers,
Alan
