Hi All,

Here's another one of those "in the draw" songs that I have revisited over the years for lyric changes, etc. Happy to have finally and properly recorded it.

This is called Blue Moon You.

A mysterious light
Cut a hole in the night
Fell while you counted sheep
I could tell by the skies
It was the moon in your eyes
You were fast asleep
There was no sound of the rain
I wasn’t going insane
It was the drumming of my heart
It was a brilliant display
Before the sun came our way
And hung in the sky like art

I know I can’t keep the night from fading
Or hold on to the light we knew
But I can dream beside you now
Blue moon you

Then a purposeful sun
Let the night be done
The sky was summer blue
I walked a million miles
Turned a million dials
Just to hear the morning news
There were no hurricanes
On my caffeine brain
It was one more day in our life
It was an early reminder
I needed to find her
Singing by the radio light

I know I can’t keep the night from fading
Or hold on to the light we knew
But I can dream beside you now
Blue moon you

The mysterious light
Makes its way every night
Covers you from the sky
I could tell by the dawn
It was a snowy morn
But the years they roll on by

I know I can’t keep the night from fading
Or hold on to the light we knew
But I can dream beside you now
Blue moon you

Bob,

I can say without reservation that this is my favorite song from you! I love the flow of this song, it's kind of got an America sound. Great vocal and background vox!

Thanks, Torrey

Yeah, like Torrey said. I really like the lyrics. So well written at such a high level of expertise. Excellent metaphor. And the vocals are also so well done. Good use of BiaB, and a professional mix. Strong from start to finish, Bob.

Very nice song. I really liked the writing and the words stand out in the mix. I also liked the fade out. Could be just my ears, but I thought the overall sound could use a little more bottom end.

Definitely your best one so far! An instant classic I would say.

I also detect a The Byrds sound. That's good :-).

Very nice artwork, by the way.

We also got the Byrds feel on this song. . .
Yeah, channeling Roger vocally and with the jangly guitar - a good thing!

Great mix and art work as always.

You’re such a good poet, Bob, and this phrase has stuck in Janice’s mind since she first listened.

“There were no hurricanes
On my caffeine brain
It was one more day in our life”

Enjoyed it!
