I wrote this song as a way of saying goodbye to my father who passed away last year.

See you on the other side, pops.

lyrics

The sky is clear now
The clouds are gone
The air is cold and I just put your sweater on
I still miss you
Every day
I'm looking for the strength
To find another way
It was always you and our perfect love
That kept me together when I'd had enough
Always you, showing me the truth

A yellow moon is shining down
On nights that last forever now
The sun that always rises without a sound
What am I supposed to do now
What am I supposed to do now

There is no religion
No kind of drug
That can make me feel like there's a chance of waking up
Every day is a prison
Every word a lie
In every face I see a hope
I know I'll never find
It was always you and our perfect love
That kept me together when I'd had enough
Always you, showing me the truth

A yellow moon is shining down
On nights that last forever now
The sun that always rises without a sound
What am I supposed to do now
What am I supposed to do now
What am I supposed to do now
What am I supposed to do now

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.
