So, more of you, if not most of you, have heard “S.O.S” already. And chances are you heard if before you heard “My Wife’s Soundtrack”. But the truth is that I wrote this one first. I wrote this one for the same reason I wrote “S.O.S.”. I wanted to write something for my wife. I also always had intentions of continuing what I started on “…To Die Is Gain” with “My Life’s Soundtrack” and “KnA”. Ending the story there left a lot of questions unanswered: “So, did you marry the girl from KnA?”, “How’d you meet your wife?”, “What happened after “KnA”?, etc.
I wanted to bridge the time gap and tell our story. I spit it for her for her on a holiday (I think it was Christmas). I had received the Instrumental from IsRael Musiq a month or two before and thought it was dope. I felt like it had a romantic side to it, probably the horns. So I started writing about our story on the low. I knew I wanted to surprise her. When I finished, the holiday was approaching and I figured it was the perfect time to share it with her. She loved it.
There were other things I wanted to accomplish with the song, but as I wrote it I saw that it would be best to write those ideas in other songs. Also, as I listened to the finish product, I felt like it did a great job of telling our story, but I didn’t really brag on my wife as much wanted it to. So I wrote “S.O.S.”, but you’ll read more about that when I get to that blog.
In the meanwhile, enjoy the track, read the lyrics, and get the answers to the questions you may have had after “…To Die Is Gain”. Grace and Peace.
I’m writin’ the soundtrack for my wife/ it’s mine to recite cause she’s the love of my life/ it’s like the song of songs, This story is not merely an allegory of redemption/ but it’s a non-fiction i live in. (x2)
If my life is like a movie, this is the awaited continuation/ of KnA to take you to the present day situation/ a love story changin’ the pace and takin’ it’s place in/ the center stage, for Christ’s glory to be displayed in it// but wait a minute and take it in as i lay a foundation/ and start at the part where she really came in/ she snuck in the plot when i wasn’t watchin’/ like Adam takin’ a nap not knowin’ what God’s penned// Redeemed Thought is on stage rockin’/ First Friday’s is the spot and she’s takin’ in the doctrine/ but that ain’t when we started talkin’/ i was asleep so to speak and don’t remember seein’ shorty wop then// we finally met formally at a bible study/ she had a man at the time and i was feelin’ somebody/ but the Lord’s plans were better ours/ it was hard, but eventually both of our plans fell apart// before all the obstacles were removed/ He choose to pair us up to prepare a bunch of food/ we at Epiphany are throwin’ our first CCC/ and co-laborin’ showed us our chemistry// the way that she’d follow my lead/ gave me confidence as a man and that’s what i needed/ i started diggin’ her and it was obvious/ we’ll talk about it later after a break from the plot// cause
Did i mention we made some mistakes along the way? from the gate/ i wasn’t guardin’ her heart and it caused her a lot of frustration/ though we didn’t really know any better/ and hadn’t read anything about how a couple should come together// the ignorance doesn’t erase the blame/ i wasn’t framed, my thoughtless actions caused some real pain/ the lasting effects rippled for years/ since no commitment was communicated it led to fear/ and that eventually became anxiety/ she’s havin’ panic attacks, and i ain’t know, but the problem’s me/ meawhile I’m talkin’ to Pastor E/ and Tiffany about her bein’ my wife potentially// They said that she needed a little time/ so i waited for the “OK” before makin’ her mine/ On Dec 12 of ‘06, i told Trish/ the plot and the plan and we began our courtship// We started off well and ended strong/ but in the middle it got kinda physical, that’s another song/ i took her Cali to meet the family/ so that they knew and approved of the new addition happily// then after about a week, I was down on a knee/ towelin’ her feet as I’m breakin’ out a ring/ then 5 months later we’re makin’ vows/ a year and nine days after we started and now//
I’m writin’ this soundtrack for my wife 3x
It’s like the song of songs 2x
