    Heaven (2015 Version With Strings)

    Heaven

    ©Bar Scott ASCAP   2000, 2015                                                                            

     

    Years ago I remember holding hands                                                 

    Running around and falling down                                                      

    In circles then, the sun was shining everywhere

    I remember my hand in your hand

    And then I find that I remember holding you

    In the grass in the meadow

    And here I am, I’m on my knees

     

    Looking to heaven so far away

    Searching for my way

     

    In love with you

    The sun was shining down on my

    I remember just lying there

    The sky was turning like a movie screen

    Where the clouds roll in fast

    And here I am I’m on my knees again

     

    Looking for heaven, far, far away

    So far that I can’t find my way

     

    When I am here

    Roses are red, a violet’s blue

    When I’m in love with you

    When I am here

    Ashes to ashes

    We all fall down

    And we get up again

    We all get up

     

    I’m walking all the way to heaven

    Heaven here I come

    I’m almost all the way to heaven

    Heaven turned away

     

    Why am I here?

    Where roses are red and black

    And no violet’s blue when I’m in love with you

    Why am I here?

    Ashes to ashes

    We all fall down

    And we get up again

    We all get up

    More (2015 Version with strings)

    More

    ©Bar Scott ASCAP 2006, 2015

     

    More than the moonlight on Long Lake

    or her water on my skin

    I love you more

    than the sky as daylight breaks

    from the darkness that was night

    glorious night!

     

    the sound of waves and sand beneath my feet

    As far as my eyes will ever see

     

    I love you more

    than the joy of Christmas morning

    and the lights up on the tree

    I love you more

    than the colors of the night

    when I close my eyes and my dreams come to life

     

    In pouring rain with pools around my feet

    and soft summer rain that cools the heat

    I love you more

     

    When winter comes

    and water forms in sheets and icicles

    one snowflake falling

    a miracle in flight

    and when the morning comes and all is white

    I love you more

     

    With ocean waves and sand beneath my feet

    In all that I see

    You are to me

    I love you more

    I Wave Bye Bye ©Jesse Winchester

    I Wave Bye Bye

    ©Jesse Winchester

     

    Just out in the harbor, all the ships asleep

    Maybe one cold watchman walks a lonely beat

    And way-out on the water a ship is under sail

    Leaving wavy starlight and a dreamer in her trail

     

    I wave bye bye, I pray Godspeed

    I wish lovely weather, more luck than you need

    You'll only sail in circles so there's no need to cry

    No, I'll see you again one day, and then I wave bye bye

     

    The sailing ship reminds me of a certain girl

    who left a certain dreamer to sail into the world

    I've very friendly postcards from very far away

    but they just remind me of a certain day

     

    I wave bye bye, I pray Godspeed

    I wish lovely weather, with more luck than you need

    You'll only sail in circles so there's no need to cry

    No, I'll see you again one day, then I'll wave bye bye

NOTES
Personal note from Bar: to date, I think this is the best work I've done. Love the arrangements, love the vocals, love the songs, GREAT players, and a fabulous time in the studio recording with Dave Cook. Highly recommended by me for you!
