Daylight_446_byJolieLorenHappy Valentine’s Day! John Driskell Hopkins is offering a free download of  “Be My Girl” off his new album DAYLIGHT for this special occasion ❤

“I sang ‘Be My Girl’ to my wife at our wedding and gave it to our guests on disc at the reception. She means everything to me. It’s her song in every way,” says John.


In the arms of gentle beauty
In the throes of auburn hair
I could babble on for hours
And sleep right through your stare On that corner off of Tharpe Street Where I used to run and hide

I had visions in our passion That compel me to decide

To love you forever
To call you my own
To make you my lover
To make you my home To build our own family To take on the world You’d make me so happy If you would be my girl

There’s a path in Cinque Terra Lovers carve their hearts in stone Where I gazed out over heaven And thought of you alone

When the sun fell through the water I stood and wrung my hands
Crying “Lord show me compassion And let me be the man”

I’m crazy about you, baby

I keep dreaming of our future I keep whispering your name I know my precious treasures You hold all of them

I’ve been counting every heartbeat I’ve been burning in my skin
Every second is a lifetime
So, baby take my hand
