I wrote this song for my wife on Valentine's Day a few years ago when we were living in Santa Monica, CA. It's called Time Machine (Take Me Back). She loves country music and it only took me about 20 minutes to come up with the song. The lyrics just flowed naturally. I had it produced in Nashville, TN by Mark Riddick. He is a frickin genius. The singer is Ron Wallace. He nailed it and made it his own. I couldn't be happier with how it turned out. Anyway, I hope you like it. Here are the lyrics:

On a lonely highway
A thousand miles from home
Another routine business trip
Another night alone

On the local radio
There's a story about a man
Who claims he built a time machine
and traveled distant lands

So I drove on over
to see with my own eyes
and met this older gentleman
who took me by surprise
when he said "Son won't you come on in,
and take her for a ride."
Just tell me where you want to go,
and she'll take you back in time.

You can see the pyramids
being built stone by stone
You can walk with Gladiators,
through the streets of Rome,
You can sail across the sea,
with Columbus and his men,
You can go anywhere you want to go,
places you've never been

And I said,

(chorus)
Take me back
to when I first held her hand
Take me back to our very first kiss,
Cause I wanna live it all over again,
Oh Mister, there's nothing
that I want to see more than this

He said, Are you sure son?,
Cause I hate to break the news
You only get one chance to ride
so be careful how you choose
I don't think he understands
and he probably wonders, "Why?"
But I can't think of a greater day
than the day I met my wife

Sir, I don't mean to be rude,
but can you turn on that machine
and switch that dial back to
the summer of '93
I want everything to be
the way it was back then
And I'll ask her to marry me,
all over again
