@mike.apt Replying to @majorswife I wrote the lyrics to this song, using all the notes my parents wrote to each other for the past 30+ years #lovestory #Love #valentinesday #singersongwriter ♬ original sound – Mike Apt
Tell us the story of your new single ‘This Gift‘?
“The first Christmas my parents were together they were very poor and they couldn’t afford Christmas gifts, so my dad went around town and found an empty box. The red one from the album cover. And wrote my mom a note saying the the best gift he could give her was his love. And no matter what he would always give it to her. The next Christmas she gave the same box back to him. and they have not missed giving the box back and forth for over 30 years. This last Christmas I posted a TikTok video about this story and it got over 1.1Million views, so I made another TikTok video saying that i was going to write a song about it, and that one got 123K views, so I made the song!”.
