Joel Ansett is a songwriter who had never written a song for his girlfriend. So, when it came time to drop a ring, he knew exactly what he had to do. “Oh My Dear” was the resulting proposal song and it sounds like Andy Grammer just before a Sunday afternoon nap…calm and groovy. Beyond that, Joel’s new single is a tried and true method for convincing girls way out of your league to marry you, and that being a constant necessity for males worldwide, we humbly predict this song to be in high demand for centuries.

Lyrics

I remember you catching my eye / I remember you baking a pie on that first day
And I was the type to hesitate / lucky for me / you were the type to wait
And my curiosity finally grew / enough for me to man up and make a move
I’m so glad that I met you dear / I’m so glad that I started chasing you

Not down here to tie my shoes / here cause I got love to prove

Oh my dear / when we’re old and gray / I’d like if all our memories were the same
I’d like if you and I shared everyday
Oh my dear / I need you to know / the more that I’m with you the more my love grows
Oh, the more I’m loving you / the more that I want to

Every chase has a novelty phase that dies / and the doubts are bound to arise
Had a wise man pull me aside / and tell me ‘boy, you best not be wasting her time’
He said: ‘this is not something you just fall into / the truest love is a love that you choose’
And oh my dear / I am here to say I’m choosing you

Not down here to say my prayers / here to promise I’ll be there

Oh my dear / when we’re old and gray / I’d like if all our memories were the same
I’d like if you and I shared everyday
Oh my dear / I need you to know / the more that I’m with you the more my love grows
Oh, the more I’m loving you / the more that I want

I want to give my love a little clarity / want to give some color to your left hand dreams
I’m here to give a carat that’s within your reach / and I hope I’m the right cut of a man
Cuz since I met you that is all I’ve wanted to be / so please forgive me all the silly figures of speech

Oh what I’m asking / what I’m asking dear…
