No Stargazing

Simple Things CD (1998)
Produced by Ian Townend

Story

I began this song when I was in college living in the north end of Boise.  Years passed by and I finally finished it when I was practicing to gig in a few coffee shops and First Thursday events.  It ended up on my Simple Things CD in 1998.  However, I just added the 3rd verse last year so technically it was finished till 2009!  

Lyrics

LYRICS:

Verse 1:  From the looks of things the rain is here to stay

The sun reclines in her dreamy hide-away

And I can’t decide if I want to go or stay

From the looks of things the rain is here to stay

 

Verse 2:  If you were here tonight the rain would be my friend

It would be alright; but I just cannot pretend

You don’t matter now when you are so far away

I can hide my heart behind the rain

 

C:  NO STARGAZIN TONIGHT

THE MOON AND THE STARS ARE STILL OUT OF SIGHT

OFF INTO DREAMLAND UNTIL DAYLIGHT / NO STARGAZIN TONIGHT

 

Verse 3:  If you were here tonight my life would be complete

I’d have it all – your love, the rain with me

Then I could rest within your blanket sweet

But you’re distant like thunder, when it’s you I need

REPEAT CHORUS

 BRIDGE:  When you look at the stars from a clear night

You feel like anything could happen

With upturned face to the Milkyway

You feel like your dreams can come true / oh oh – where are you?
