BESPOKE

Song Writing

An original, personalised love song for your wedding day

 Jake is an accomplished professional writer, singer & musician.

 

Jake’s writing has featured on the pages of various Australian publications and e-zines, as well as a bunch of websites across the wide wide world of digital web. His ability to put succinctly what most others cannot also helped keep him employed for a decade, as a creative copy writer, with the nation’s biggest media company.

 

But it’s within the sometimes-whimsical sometimes-literal realms of poetry, verse & lyricism that Jake feels his writing really belongs. In high school he filled journal after journal with observation, rhyme and prose – much of which he & Andy turned into original songs (they known as Pretty Penny back then!) – and even today, with his guitar always close by, Jake is still frequently moved to write.

My gorgeous husband sang our favourite song complete with personalised lyrics, to me, in front of all of our wedding guests! What an indescribable surprise and gift. I'll absolutely treasure that moment and the memory (and footage!) forever. Thank you!

My Heart Belongs To You

by Jake Newell

 

 

You robbed me blind the first time
I laid my eyes on you

 

I nearly cried when you smiled,
and blushed as if you knew;

 

Just what I felt and that I would melt

 

if our eyes were locked too long

Then I dealt with just how good you smelt,

and it was like my favourite song,

 

and i knew…

 

As long as my heart’s still beating;

as long as I’m still breathing;

as long as the morning see’s the night retreating;

My heart belongs to you.

 

 

You offered up a kiss that I couldn’t afford to miss

but then I needed more.

I made a wish and thank God you granted this

when I said I can have you all.

How could I stray or ever stay away

when your love fills up every bone?

To this day I still feel the same

and just I want to let you know,

 

 

I want you to know…

 

 

As long as my heart’s still beating;

as long as I’m still breathing;

as long as the morning see’s the night retreating;

My heart belongs to you.

 

 

As long as my heart’s still beating;

as long as I’m still breathing;

as long as the morning see’s the night retreating;

My heart belongs to you.
