Elephant in the Sky



 Genre: Ballad

Get Flash to see this player.

I spent my summer holiday in Kauai in July. We sat on the beach at night and looked for shooting stars. Then we saw a cloud looking like a giant elephant. It was a beautiful night. Peaceful. Happy. And sad as well because we just lost our close friend just before we left Japan.
So, this song is about my this year. Happy holidays, everyone! And happy new year! Yoi Otoshi-wo.

If anyone would like to add some strings, you are more than welcome! Pls let me know. I only have Jam Packs sounds and they are just not good enough....

Elephant in the sky

We were looking for a shooting star
in the empty sandy beach that night
The starry sky seemed as if swallowing us
and I felt the existence of the universe

An elephant shaped cloud was
swimming in the stream of wind
Take a deep breath of our dreams
then blow it up in the sky

Elephant in the sky
Run in the starry plain
Take us on your back
To the other side of the moon
The universe shall go on forever

Time is chasing us all the time
But we are still at a standstill
I see twinkling of the light on water
It's as if reflecting our stirred minds

We were thinking of our friend
who was not there
He died probably to become a star
You said he tried too much to be cool
The words were just hanging in the air

Elephant in the sky
Run in the starry plain
Turn our dreams into stardusts
I wonder our lights can be seen
from the far end of the universe

I realised the moonlight
has swallowed stars now
Let's go home
Just when you said it,
a shining star was falling in the stream of night
