Patrick Henery Hughes

Here it is (FINNALLY!). I promised I would post the song, or at least the lyrics to the song, once I had them more solid. Here they are!

I reach out my hands
and feel those keys
and I know that
you cant see them
and only can feel them

I try to understand
exactly what you feel
when your hands
feel those keys
but I know
I will never know
exactly what you feel

You are such a star
your out there
playing and singing your heart out
better than most people can
and Im sitting here
playing my heart out
and knowing what it feels like
to have your heart soar
as you play

Your a star in the darkness
who can do everything
that I wish I could do
you can play a piano
better than most seeing people can

And to me
that pianist
that can see
and can extend her arms
but struggles with ADD
uses you as a guide
that bright star in the darkness
who gives me something to aim for


Over the past couple of days, while I've been cat sitting, I've been able to take the time to record some improv stuff on the piano. Seriously. I havent listened to any of it yet, and have no idea what I will hear when I put the files onto my laptop and listen to them. I PROMISE that I will post any of these that are any good as soon as I listen to them!

I cant believe that a week from this sunday is Easter. How amazing! It came way to quickly this year. It will be 150 years before Easter is this early again. Last Easter (Easter 2007) I had to work at Dow Gardens. Thankfully this year I don't have to work Easter.

I am going to make my next post devoted to the lyrics that I wrote after seeing the Extreme Makeover Home Edition on Patrick Henery Hughes.
