I Saw Stars In Your Eyes

about

This was a song I wrote after another bout of writers block I had after finishing "The Story" and it was written for a band I played banjo in called Ramblin' Rounders. It's one of the songs I'm more proud of lyrically and really reflects some deep down feelings I have and relating it to someone who's lost their loved one.

It's a long and lonely winter and these boots, they never dry
But here I stand and start to wonder, "Was I born to sit and cry?"
Well the days are slowly passing and the leaves change with the fall
But in your eyes, I can't stop dreaming. Still, I wait to hear your call

And in the moonlight I saw your face for the first time
And oh the stars were shining bright in your eyes.
I wish you were mine.
Some things I'll never say, (") I hope to see you somewhere along the way (")
Leaving has always been a habit, now my tears are falling on your casket

When we met by the willow and your hair, it smelled so sweet
You said, "Boy, why are you waiting?" You took my hand and kissed me
Through the years, been wanderin' lonesome and my hat would hang down low
I can feel your presence near me as its down the road I go

And in the moonlight I saw your face for the first time
And oh the stars are shining bright in your eyes
I wish you were mine.
Some things I can't erase. Oh the touch of your embrace.
I whisper as you lie in your casket, "My heart is your's, you've always had it."
