Carnival

Hey sweetness, open your eyes
There’s the arch of the state line
Ohio seemed so far away
‘seems so far behind

Colors flying under gray skies
With a hand so cold inside mine
On a ride spinning around and around
At the carnival
At the carnival

So take me back to where I come from
A place I hardly can recall
Where we both know our names
And some things never change … at all

I stood outside in a field today
Alone, the rolling clouds began to play
A game in which each figure looked like you
Every single shape reminded me of you

So take me back to where I come from
A place I hardly can recall
Where we know who we are
A place that seems so far … away

right back where we began
nice to see you here again
darkness in the heart of summer
but for stars without number

teases like I shouldn’t wonder
seductive currents pull you under
right back where we began
nice to see you here again

listen for the little whispers
feel the friction turn to blisters
darkness in the heart of summer
but for knowing without wonder

the sun never shows
where this dark blossom grows

seems we always say goodbye
and mean it each and every time
isn’t this where we began?
nice to see you here again

It just occurred to me
Early to bed – early to rise
No one here can hear me
The breach is miles wide

If I hold on tight she’ll shake loose
On wings she’ll take to flight
And look down on the secrets
Of a world she’s left behind

It just occurred to me
Don’t stare too long or you’ll go blind
At the light that spans like a rail
From the world she’s left behind

we only wanted
we wanted to feel
but the sun and the moon
the wind and the waves

and then the trees
the trees lost form
as the road became endless
endless as the stars
stars we could no longer see

with each morning
each morning we are new
but the sun and the moon
the wind and the rain

good morning
good day
good night

we only wanted
we wanted to see
with the eyes of a child
stars we could no longer see
and all the stars
we could no longer see
all the stars
and the trees lost form
as the road became endless

You’ve Got To Hide Your Love Away

My 9-year-old daughter has become a major fan of the Beatles, so for a holiday project, she and I worked on doing a cover version of this classic.  We had a blast doing it, and I think she sang this beautifully.  She also helped on the percussion and instrumentation. I hope you had a wonderful holiday, and enjoy this piece.

… another day done.

it’s easy to look back
and be so wise
in all the things that might have been
if you’d only begun.
