Our collaboration on 50/90. Kristi created her inspiring lyric, I composed music and recorded my piano and rough idea of the vocals and Dawn sang our song beautifully :)

Give me ten minutes
On a hot August night
To look at the moon
And ponder life

Give me ten minutes
On the bow of a boat
To watch the waves
And know where to go

If I can take a little time
To sit back and listen
Maybe somehow I can find
Answers to what I'm missing

Give me ten minutes
When you want to cry
To echo your pain
And see the other side

Give me ten minutes
When I can't be found
To beg the silence
To lift me off the ground

Ten minutes
Is all I need
Ten minutes
To think, to breathe
Ten minutes
Ten minutes
Ten minutes
