Home Demo - Tonight I Saw A Falling Star
Home demo played live on a Martin HD-28 tuned to Open D and glass slide in to an AKG C-2000-B mic. Words and music 2014 by Jefferson Hart (Jeff Hart).
tonight i saw a falling star just underneath the moon
tears started to fill my eyes, but i toughened up too soon
putting words in my mouth to someone else's tune
stayed up too late and slept till the afternoon
i thought out loud about how in the world you've been
wondering if you worked up the nerve to have the nerve again
to ruffle up some feathers, sail into the wind
you can call me sweetheart, but please don’t phone it in
all these so-called pretty things, these things made up my home
things that brought me comfort, instead turned me to stone
looked up at the evening star, how brightly it had shone
and yet somehow all these pretty things made me feel alone
do i have it inside of me to push my luck that far?
to bring a map on purpose, to wish on a star?
while i sleep tonight in the willows, too drowsy to think
when it’s easier to wallow and drown these things with drink
someone with more sense than me would say that i should stop
time’s come to call IT a day, let’s call this thing a flop
grab the ring, strike the iron, and strike it while it's hot
roll in the downy meadow and sleep there when you're not
you shot me back and forth, off hand across the moon
re-entry in your atmosphere, should i be landing soon?
our place among the stars forever & for what it's worth
a spectacular view of mars
and the man who fell to earth
