about

So this song parallels Blackbird in inspiration. Like Jenny, I was driving in my car (my muse clearly lives there). I was waiting at a red light, and I watched a flock of sparrows land on the power lines along the side of the road. I noticed that in between the telephone poles, there were five wires...and it looked like measures of music, and the birds were the notes. I immediately began humming the melody that became the phrase,"The sunlight fades around me...". As I was driving, I finished the melody of the refrain, and I immediately hit the piano to finish the song when I got home. The lyrics came much later. I have a tendency to write happy songs, but these really sad lyrics just came to me one day. And it turned out to be a sad song wrapped up in happy chords. When I sang the song for my husband for the first time he said, "Wow. That's really sad....I hope it's not about us..." LOL! No. No, it's not. ~ Diana

lyrics

The sunlight fades around me in pink and purple hues
And in that moment what should I do
I glance your way our eyes meet
We make our way through the crowd
We dance away our hearts in the clouds

And I know it isn't right to mislead you
But I know I can't fight the need to
Hold you in my arms like we used to spend
So I'll close my eyes and pretend

The sunlight fades around me in pink and purple hues
And in that moment what should I do
I glance your way our eyes meet
We make our way through the crowd
We dance away our hearts in the clouds

But the dreams of you and me have faded
And I know that our love is jaded
So just one more dance to cover up the lies
Won't you hold my hand and fantasize

La la la la la la la la la la
Ooh ~~~ ah ~~

The sunlight fades around me in pink and purple hues
And in that moment what should I do
I glance your way our eyes meet
We make our way through the crowd
We dance away our hearts in the clouds
