“The Sky Is Still Blue” is a song I wrote during one of the saddest moments of my life.


Somehow, I was still happy. I noticed the beautiful things. The sun shining. The birds singing.


The birds. They reminded me of me.


I’m a singer-songwriter.


At that time, I felt I wasn’t supposed to be the person I had been.


The person I learned to be. The person I was taught to be. The person I wanted to be. The person I worked hard to be.


Why was everything I had believed in falling apart?


But the essence of grief is questioning.


Your existence. Your identity.


“Songbird” is one of my nicknames. One of my favorites and one that describes me the best.


So on that pretty day as my avian friends cheered me up, I grabbed my journal and wrote this song.


If your heart is broken; if you are grieving, remember, “The Sky Is Still Blue”.


“THE SKY IS STILL BLUE”

VERSE 1:

Here it comes now

I wait for you

Here it comes now

I stay for you

Here it comes now

I write for you

Here it comes now

I wait for you 


PRE-CHORUS:

I’ll keep on rising

To wondrous expectations

I will keep on floating

To better destinations


CHORUS:

The sky is still blue

Even though my heart is sinking

The sky is still blue

Even though my ground is shaking

The sky is still blue

Even though my hands are trembling

The sky is still blue

The sky is still blue…


VERSE 2:

Here it comes now

I sing for you

Here it comes now

I go for you

Here it comes now

I dance for you

Here it comes now

I sing for you


REPEAT PRE-CHORUS & CHORUS


BRIDGE:

I won’t keep on holding

To your misconceptions

I won’t keep on offering

Myself in consolation


I can’t keep on living, like this

I can’t keep on breathing, like this

I can’t keep on moving, like this

I can’t keep on feeling, like this


REPEAT CHORUS

Was your spirit ever just tired and broken?


You felt you couldn‘t go on?


Or didn’t want to go on?


Maybe you were just fed up.


Either way, I hope this song picks you up after a hard day or season.


You have so much ahead of you!


Dream BIG!!!


“I STILL HAVE BIG DREAMS”

Songwriter: © Fatima Morken, 2016 BMI


VERSE 1:

It’s ok because I made it to the end

It’s ok because I’m still intact and whole

The light is here

I’m walking in it

I’m breathing it

It’s ok because I don’t turn nor look back

It’s ok because I’m looking beautiful

The tunnel is traveled

I’m burying it

Forgetting it


1st PRE-CHORUS:

Ah, ah, ah, ah the relief has come to me

Ah, ah, ah, ah an eternity of promises 

Ah, ah, ah, ah


CHORUS:

I still have big dreams

I still have one hope

For my life is worth so much more than this

I still have my eyes

On the things of Heaven

For they dwell in me and my hope never dies


VERSE 2:

It’s ok because I have nothing to lose

It’s ok because I’ve lost everything

My heart is wrapped in the arms of Heaven

In the arms of Heaven

It’s ok because I’m not here for myself

It’s ok because I overcame it all

Peace covered my insufficiency

Love carried me


2nd PRE-CHORUS:

Ah, ah, ah, ah the relief has come to me

Ah, ah, ah, ah an eternity of promises

That aren’t broken ever, that aren’t broken ever 

Ah, ah, ah, ah


REPEAT CHORUS
