From the album 17 West

In cart Not available Out of stock

The writer sits at the piano and tells the story of two artists, dreamers, happy outcasts that found each other early on and withstood the test of time.
"The snow came down in shades of wonder, two peacocks of another color, we never touched the ground...I was there."

I Was There – words and music-Sonya Heller ©2015 ASCAP Sonya Heller Music
Verse I
I was there when the lights went out
I was there when we went without
There we were no ones’ favorite Son
Two blissful misfits on the run
Warmed against the coldest dawn
In innocence granted only to the young
I was there


Verse II
You kissed me in the forest glen
Brought me to your Winter den
We laid across your feather bed
Lived on wine and cigarettes
The snow came down in shades of wonder
Two peacocks of another color
We never touched the ground
I was there










Chorus
Light and darkness joined as one
You met me where the Moon spoke to the Sun
On silken stone from the riverbed
We walked across the Earth and moss
Silent barefoot trails to cross
I felt you hand, I heard your voice
Like hushed tones in the mist
Hushed tones in the mist

Verse II and out
I was there when the lights went out
I was there when we went without
There we were no ones’ favorite Son
Two blissful misfits on the run
Warmed against the coldest dawn
In innocence granted only to the young
I was there
I was there
I was there…
