A wintry piano ballad. The journey of two lovers...

lyrics

I Was There
I Was There-(c)-2015-Sonya Heller Music-ASCAP

Verse 1

I was there when the lights went out
I was there when we went without
There we were no ones favorite Son
Two blissful misfits on the run
Warmer against the coldest dawn
In innocence granted only to the young

Chorus

I was there...

Verse II

You kissed me in the forest glen
We lay across your featherbed
Lived on wine and cigarettes
The Snow came down in shades of wonder
Two Peacocks of another color
We never touched the ground

Chorus

I was there...

Bridge

Light and darkness joined as one
You met me where the Moon spoke to the Sun
On silken stone from the riverbed
We walked across the earthen moss
Silent barefoot trails to cross
I felt your hand
I heard your thoughts
Like hushed tones in the mist
Hushed tones in the mist

Verse

I was there when the lights went out
I was there when we went without
There we were no ones favorite Son
Two blissful misfits on the run
Warmed against the coldest dawn
In innocence granted only to the young

Chorus and out....

I was there
I was there
I was there
