It sounds like a bad 1970's love song from BREAD or Dan Fogelberg or the Captain & Tennille. I can almost picture Tennille singing it a few inches from the Captain's face right before an awful kiss. In my opinion, an example of "Jesus is my boyfriend" music. If I heard it at a new church I was attending, I would probably turn around and leave and never come back.
