From the recording Thinking About Your Eyes

Moonbeams made magic as I drove home from a band rehearsal late on a cool summer night. I didn’t stop at home, but instead drove a few miles further on to the beach, where I took a walk on the dark strand and came upon the embers of a dying fire, while the ceaseless sounds of the ocean and night birds brought on a yearning for that someone I had yet to meet... this all inspired me with the idea for this song’s creation. My band mate and good friend George Pultz and I got together to write one Sunday afternoon, and I brought most of these lyrics along, and together we created this song.

Lyrics

I’m thinking about your eyes      On this cold clear summer night  I can hear the trees sigh Even the night birds are keeping quiet
And I wonder as I watch the fire   
Sparks and smoke drifting up into the sky     
And I wonder what you’re doing tonight  
Sand patterns are changing with the tide   
 
If you were sitting here with me
Looking out at the wondrous night 
Your hair is blowing in the breeze
I can almost feel you by my side
 
So I wonder as I watch the sky   
Naming the stars within my sight  
And I wonder what you’re doing tonight  
Waves ebb and flow beyond the firelight 
 
Telling the truth, I know that I’m, 
Not looking for love
I’ll be prepared. 
Time will come and I know you’ll be there
 
And I wonder how it would be
If you were sitting here by the fire
Snuggling close by the hissing sea
There’s poetry the stars above inspire

So I’m following the curve of the beach
As I walk alone out into the night And my thoughts fly up to the stars
You could be walking this beach with me tonight...
