This is definitely version 1.0. I want to make a lot of things better, but I’ve been working on this song so long, I needed a way to ritualistically “let it go,” mentally “get it off my desk” as it were, so I can work on other songs. Funny thing. I never was satisfied with this song, more the way it sounded, the production quality. And I hadn’t listened to it in a while. So I recently put my iPhone on Shuffle, a John Mayer song popped up, then a Ravel number, and then this, one of the earlier versions I did, and I thought, “Hey, it kind of holds its own in sound quality to those.” I liked it. Whenever you’re working on a song, it’s like you have to get some emotional distance from it, in order to hear it objectively. I thought it was good. I want to eventually dig into the individual tracks and make some little things better, but overall, I thought it fit in and held it’s own as it is, against some other music that I have a lot of respect for.

(V1)

Oh honey, oh dear,
Whatcha’ been doin’
Since you been here?

You like sunny
Eyes blue as the sea
Tell me stories so funny
So I can laugh and sing

It’s cold and it’s snowin’
We gotta chance to be free
There’s a fire that’s still glowin’
On the inside of me

We’ll drink from the bottle
Vintage Pouilly Fouisse
We’ll swim through the oceans
And dance in the valley

Chorus:
Over the hills and into the trees
Riding so high, feeling so free
Don’t turn around I want you to see
Just what you mean to me.

(V2)

Mountains covered with sunshine
Hills covered in snow
Wind singing like angels
Singing things we should know

I wanna take you forever
I wanna take you to sea
Round ’bout like the angels
Filled with harmony

It’ll be so funny
It’ll be so clear
When we’re walkin’ on Sunshine
When we’re walkin’ on air

Chorus 2.

Solo. (Over 2 Bars of Verse Chords and a full Chorus)

(Verse 3)

You’re so funny
You’re so sweet
Lips like honey
Eyes like the sea.

Oh honey, oh dear
Whatcha’ been doin’
Since you been here?

Outro.

Fim.
