Lyrics

Sliver of a Moon

Written By: Lowry Olafson

Sliver of a Moon

It’s rising
A little sliver of a moon
Shining
In the shadows of our room
And in the middle of a dream
I hold you near.

Me
I was always on the run
It’s just love
That I been running from,
But when I listen to you breathe,
It all comes clear.

Chorus: You make me want to live and love,
Take a chance and shake it up.
Another moon, another day gone by,
First you fall, and then you fly_____.

We’re ___
Living on the edge
Where we go from here
Is anybody’s guess,
But when you’re lying in my arms,
It’s not so far.

Bridge: Every day, I love you a little more,
I could hide my heart away
But that isn’t what it’s for.

Chorus

Vertigo

Written By: Lowry Olafson

Vertigo

Last night I dreamt that I was on a sailboat
High up in the rigging
Holding on for all my life,
Surging thru the crashing waves
I closed my eyes, so afraid to slip
Scared to lose my grip.

Tonight I took a walk out in the wilderness
Crossed a bridge that rises
Above the canyon far below
Each time I looked over the edge
You know that chill came over me again
And I felt a kind of thrill.

Chorus:
I am so afraid of falling
I am so afraid to let you in
When I try to it show
My heart begins to spin
It feels like vertigo.

Bridge: When you give your heart
To someone else to hold,
There's a leap of faith
You’re gonna have to take

And then you’re flying high without a care,
But who's to say that they'll be there at all
Will they catch you when you fall?

Chorus

Hey Jack

Written By: Lowry Olafson

Hey Jack

Hey Jack, you’re all packed,
It’s time for leaving.
Hey Jack, don’t look back,
Now you’re on your way.
We’ll try not to cry, no need for grievin’
You’re headed for a brand new day.

Hey Jack, it’s a fact,
We’re gonna miss you,
Hey Jack, you led the pack,
And it won’t be the same.
But if you don’t go, you won’t know,
You’ll always wish you,
Were headed for a brand new day.

Looking for adventure,
Where do you go from here?
Searchin’ for some answers,
You’ll never find ‘em in your rear view mirror.

Hey Jack, c’mon back
If you start to wonder,
But now Jack, get the Pontiac,
And make your getaway,
Have fun, ‘cause no one
Can steal your thunder,
You’re headed for a brand new day.

Rollin’ down the highway,
Feels like an empty page,
We’ll all give a goodbye wave,
‘Cause now the whole world’s your stage.

Hey Jack, stay on track
There’s nothing to it,
Hey Jack, watch your back
And it’ll be okay.
You’ll fly so high, we’ll say we knew you
Were headed for a brand new day.
