about

I was hosting a jam session at my house in the early 1980's and I was playing this song when I was surprised and delighted by a violin joining in. It ended being the beginning of a long musical relationship with Jimmy Fajardo who booked us a gig 2 weeks later...and that was the beginning of Up in the Air.
The song itself was written after my first niece was born and I was thrilled to become an uncle for the first time.

lyrics

Little Love
(For Lisa)
by John Beccia

Little baby crawling on the ground
Reaching out in front of you
Life is your discovery, it's so new
Chorus.... Just a little love
Just a little love
Just a little love will see you through


Tiny hands that feel and touch the world
Open eyes so wide to view
You are always changing, it's so true
Repeat Chorus

Refrain - There's no words to make me understand
Still I wonder why you cry
There's a time for sorrow, take my hand
Till the time comes when you say goodbye

Instrumental

Now I'll hold you gently in my arms
Time is like the morning's dew
Yet your smile it warms me, thru and thru
Just a little love
Just a little love
Just a little love inside of you

(Just a little love) - repeated & fade
