about

Kelly Jones helped Holly with BGVs on this one. Very nice. Sometimes I hear piano parts and am a little surprised to realize that I played them. Very pleased with the song and the recording.

The World Around Me
Lyrics & Music ©2003 Derek A. Shacklett

Kaleidoscopic colors
paint the trees of Arkansas
Finale fantastic
Before the leaves give up and fall
And driving through these Ozark hills
I am overcome with awe

(chorus)
With more than ears let me hear
With more than eyes let me see
With every breath let me breathe
The wonders of this world around me

The rockies rise like giants
Against a Colorado sky
Impossible to comprehend
But daring me to try
And who could see this mountain range
And not wish for wings to fly

(chorus)
With more than ears let me hear
With more than eyes let me see
With every breath let me breathe
The wonders of this world around me

(bridge)
For my part, I know nothing with any certainty but
The sight of the stars makes me dream...

We woke ourselves up early
Just to drive down to the shore
The locals thought us crazy
As if the gulf could be a bore
But morning riding ocean waves
Who could hope for more?
(chorus)
