THE SKY IS STILL BLUE

“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”.

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
