Angel in Her Eyes - Story behind the song

I wrote Angel in Her Eyes for two reasons: to honor my girlfriend and to try my hand at writing a country song. Well, I think my girl likes the song so I might be okay there.But as for writing a country song, I think I have a ways to go. I recently started listening to country music when Sandy & I started dating. I fell in love with the style and lyrics of country music. I really dig Tim McGraw, Brad Paisley and Melissa Lambert, Randy Travis and so many other artists. I keep hoping that one of these folks will pick up this song and make it a hit! Anyway, I like the song because it tells about a guy that's less than perfect being loved by girl that sees more in him than he does. Kind of a reflection of where I am at times if you know what I mean. For those of you out there wondering where the Paul Hieser is that writes contemporary Christian music, he's still here. God created man and woman for each other. I figure if I love a woman, I can write a song about it and still honor the Creator. Hope you have a great week! - Paul

Morning Love

I wrote this song many years ago before digital home studios were around (I might be dating myself here). I came across the song again as I was organizing my sheet music in my music room. It took about 3 minutes to get the old melody and basic guitar back into my head. What you're hearing now are the old lyrics with the same vocal melody and a newer sound. When I wrote this song, I didn't have a love in my life so it was more of a fantasy of what it would be like to wake up next to someone I was madly in love with. Since then, I have loved and lost and hoped again for love. It's my hope that you have someone in your life that you are madly in love with and that you can share this song with them 'in the morning light'. -peace & grace- Paul

Behind the Song, "Really Miss You"

The lyrics were written by long time friend Velvet K-S in North Carolina. Music and lead vocals by yours truly. Back up vocals by Dawn Neptune (reverbnation.com). She's an awesome talent and friend! Bass by Treena Foster (reverbnation.com). My brother, Pat, and I use to jam this song at get parties on acoustics out West when we made the move from Virgina years ago. I recently began looking through old music that I had & stumbled upon Really Miss You. With the help of Dawn (also engineered the track), we created what you hear on my page. The song has meaning for me in so many ways and it would take too long to explain here. If you like the song, please pass it on to a friend. -peace & grace- Paul
