Songs by Michael Holland

Alone In A Crowd

A wild red rose
Second to none
Fights for the sun
In the stony ground
On the edge of town

Spending her days
Surrounded by weeds
And still she succeeds

ALONE IN A CROWD
Nobody else like her around
Nothing to hear but the sound
Of her heart beating so loud
ALONE IN A CROWD

She's looking for love
A love that won't leave
Love she'll believe
It's the only kind
That she cares to find

She goes out with friends
To parties and clubs
But there's no sign of love

REPEAT CHORUS

She's not in some old matchmaker's waiting room
And she's not reading tea leaves or tarot cards

There's no need for tears
She knows she'll be fine
She's biding her time
And she's having fun
Yes, her time will come

She's nobody's fool
It's easy to see
She won't always be

REPEAT CHORUS x 2
TITLE TO FADE

Valentine's Day

VALENTINE'S DAY (Michael Holland)

I make a promise this VALENTINE'S DAY
I will be true till my dying day
You are the bride I have dreamed all my life
It's VALENTINE'S DAY…
Say you'll be my wife

Here's my proposal, honest and clear
But are these the words you're longing to hear
You are the meaning, the love of my life
It's VALENTINE'S DAY…
Say you'll be my wife

And I'll stand beside you as long as I live
All that I am, to you I will give
I'll never leave you, I'll love you for life
It's VALENTINE'S DAY…
Say you'll be my wife

Don't keep me waiting, won't you be kind
This kind of love is so hard to find
Say that you'll stay for the rest of my life
It's VALENTINE'S DAY…
Say you'll be my wife

It's VALENTINE'S DAY
mmm, VALENTINE'S DAY
It's VALENTINE'S DAY
Say you'll be my wife

Biography:

Songwriting has always been a part of me, and now I am devoted to it. I've been doing it a long time and studied many genres up close due to an earlier career as a pro recording engineer for too many years, mostly at large studios, including a very enjoyable 4 years at Battery Studios London UK (early 1990's on salary as in-house producer/engineer for the Zomba group). I'm an adept drum and synth programmer, ProTools HD operator, all-round musician/arranger/singer. I play half a dozen instruments pretty well and I love to write and sing songs. I'm just at the start of my education in video editing, and looking forward to making my own video content and building an internet presence.
