Heavenly Blue

about

I guess it's hard to explain why this song happened, but if you ever come out to coffee with me, I'll tell you. In order to record this song, I played the root notes on the mandolin over a metronome and then built up a four part harmony around the root note. I then programmed in the drums, and sang the lyrics. All I knew going in was that a few months before, I'd heard a voice in my head that sounded like Bing Crosby singing "Heavenly blue.", and then some things after that as I fell asleep. So I tried to build this song off of that.

lyrics

Heavenly blue,
Stare at the ceiling and it's staring at you
Stomach still shaking,
I'm still waiting for you
Down in the gardens and
Up on the moon
Hope for the harvest and
If it's too soon
The nighttime paints you grey and white and
Heavenly blue

I see the cracks in its armor
I see the faults in my own
I see the specks in your eyelids
And my own logs overgrown

Heavenly blue,
Ripped out the pages and I threw them to you
Dancing like angels and
Up to the moon,
Swept up these skeletons and I
Dreamed about you
Climbing up mountains and
Dancing a tune
All of the cities painted grey and white and
Heavenly blue

I see the cracks in its armor
I see the faults in my own
I see the specks in your eyelids
And my own logs overgrown

Heavenly blue
Down in the gardens and up on the moon
Hope for the harvest and if it's too soon
All of the cities painted grey and white and
Heavenly blue
