about

I wrote this song on the acoustic guitar, sitting on my living room couch. It was a moment of catharsis following the birth of my daughter.

lyrics

Good days come and good days go
leaves will fall and grass will grow
the river is low the mountain is tall
I’ll be there to catch your fall

All those wars will never teach you
because the darkness never breaks
just beneath the dirt we’re moving
there’s only more of what we make

I have so much love for you in my heart
I can feel tomorrow’s new day is ours
I believe I saw your face in the stars
last night I dreamed I was awake
last night I dreamed I was awake

Now we see we are together
Now we see we have so much
the only point to being happy
is if it is something you can touch

I have so much love for you in my heart
I can feel tomorrow’s new day is ours
I believe I love you just as you are
last night I dreamed I was awake
last night I dreamed I was awake

When the flames rise up
But the light won't shine
When you lose your way in the dark
I will catch your fall
I will catch your fall

Good days come and good days go
leaves will fall and grass will grow
the river is low the mountain is tall
I’ll be there to catch your fall

I started playing piano in White Plains, New York because our black upright piano fascinated me and my sisters hated their piano lessons. That was in the 80's and I have never stopped writing songs.
