Doc Schneider: Music

Wherever You Are

(Performed by Neal Middleton of Royal Bliss)
July 2, 2005
Words and Music - Doc Schneider (Arrangement -James Guymon)
In the whispered words of every mind is the pure moment we had and left behind --that lasts forever. This song tries to express that feeling. It moved me when I wrote it in 1995 -- but it took James Guymon's arrangement and Neal Middleton's performance of the song in 2005 to really bring it home.
WHEREVER YOU ARE

I close my eyes
to this December night.
In this cold air,
I turn my face up to the light.
I feel your lips
floating down from years ago
I feel my pain
melting like this falling snow.

I feel my feet
rising from the ground.
This busy street
hardly makes a sound.
I hear my voice
promising forever,
And though we left
this moment left me never -

So wherever you are
look at the sky tonight
You are never so far
that you cannot find that light
And when it grows dark
it shines where you are
and even from this distance
I can still see that star
from wherever you are

I lost your face
somewhere long ago
And of your eyes,
the color now is all I know
But on this night,
this falling snow can bring you back
And in this light,
all the rest just fades to black.

And on this very night
I am imagining the sound
there are eyes upon the light
and feet are rising from the ground.

So wherever you are
look at the sky tonight
You are never so far
that you cannot find that light
And when it grows dark
it shines where you are
and even from this distance
I can still see that star
from wherever you are

It is the hope
that I remember here
It is the life
that I remember breaking clear
It was your hand
I felt within my hand
A burning warm
burning down this frozen land

So wherever you are
look at the sky tonight
You are never so far
that you cannot find that light
And when it grows dark
it shines where you are
and even from this distance
I can still see that star
from wherever you are
