i'm cheating. it's march. but in my mind, it's still
songaday. songaday forever.

this is another one with parts that were inspired by the
recent lovely Orange Room performance by Daniel Berkman and
Steve Lawson. i was listening back to the webcast of the eve
a couple days later, and came up with some of the chorus
bits listening to their first song. (of course, have changed
the key, as i've not gotten quite brave enough yet to wander
beyond the white keys on my keyboard...will get to the deep
end eventually...) anyway, those two have some awesome
synergy. yay inspiration. 

one other bit of inspiration for this song came from the lovely Emily Baker, whose gorgeous album House of Cards i recently heard for the first time, on a rainy drive to Petaluma. again, someone else's musical genius inspired some lyrical & melody ideas of my own, and some of those ideas wove themselves into this song as well. mostly in the bridge...

so blessed to know so many amazing musicians and to be inspired by their noise, such good fodder.  it's nice to have lots of lovely song scraps lying about for when the writing bug bites...


bright spaces

palm to palm 
across a pane of glass
love make frozen
soluble

opening into 
bright spaces
this pleasure
desire's cunning 
can't contrive

so unexpected
so courageous
to unfold a heart
layer by layer
crack the stars apart
sense vibration
never felt before  
don't want to run
don't want to hide
may pieces fall
where galaxies collide

opening into
bright spaces
constellation rearrange
sweet surprise
show me your garden
one footstep at a time
find our way
sculpt a lifetime
into one day

universe unfolding
in head and heart
finger and vein

enfolded
in gentle arms
hour stretch
to eternity
crowd forever
into one moment
sunshine in your eyes
burn through
clear the way
life flow again

opening into
bright spaces
this pleasure 
desire's cunning 
can't contrive
show me your garden
one footstep at a time
find our way
sculpt a lifetime
into one day

universe unfolding
in head and heart
finger and vein
feeling linger
life flow again
