Lyrics
Skylarks

When the rain is fallin down
And I feel I can't go on
I take A walk through the park
To the place we made our own - sweet love
How can I make you understand
We dont have time for dreaming
But we can take on the world
Theres always skylarks singing when you smile

When the day get you down
And you feel broken inside
Just remember as the sun
Leaves the sky you dont need to hide
We all face the music everyday
And it has never been so easy
And life can break the cruellest heart
But theres always skylarks singing when you smile

Just you and the piano and the coffee house. Sounds sweet. Does have a late evening tone to it :) I think I will have some whiskey to wash down my coffee.

Thanks

Thanks Bill - well I never forget going to an underground late night bar and watching a band back in the days when I actually had the motivation to work overtime at a factory so was knackered but what was even better was the cd of billy holiday with duke ellington afterwards (although live is best) and it deserved a glass of whiskey - it was beautiful - here - have another.Cheers - Rich

Accompanying
yes - I'm grateful for a job playing piano in a restaurant but I itch to sing along sometimes rather than playing the melodies - misty and songs like that are some of the most beautiful songs...stil..maybe...one day! thank you M!

Oh, they're all over at the piano bar, swooning over the dreamy crooner. ;)

I wrote it on saturday 14.6.08 - it was a bit painstaking though as the vst i was usin eats up more cpu than i have so i had to seperate the midi from the audio and bounce it to aif to avoid stuttering then re-import it.Was worth it though for the piano.Thanks Tobin

This one had to be sung when the percolators had retired for the night. That waitress you asked to turn down the lights seems to be draped over the piano with eyes for only you. Now why would that be, d'ya suppose? Huh?

Is that you?
Wow.. didn't expect this from you... This really shows a mellow side of you that has not been evident in your previous work, or maybe I just didn't really look close enough at your other songs. Your voice is so soothing and really relaxing, effortless yet brimming with feelings. If your other songs did not make me muse in sentimentality, this one certainly made me somewhat emotional. Bravo, man!

and...
Now I am inspired to scan through your songs... to look for this sentimentality...
I 'm a fan of yours, but this song got me biting on the hook. line and sinker.
