about

This was the first song I ever wrote with my dear friend, Will Miner (artist name Will Rise). While pursuing his passion as an artist and incredible musician, he passed away earlier this February 2016. The recent passing of my dear friend made me want to recreate the first song that we ever wrote together.

Daniele Tiddia, a mutual friend of mine and Will, has made a beautiful guitar arrangement. We are so happy to be able to come together and give this gift to our beloved friend Will and his darling family.

I have made this song free for download, so that we may all feel connected to him and remember him forever.

With so much love to Will, Sherry, Robert, Devon, and Jo from Daniele and Lydia.

lyrics

There was rainfall
But clearer skies
As I'm reminded of your image
I couldn't have a clearer picture

You were the sun
That warmed the skies
And it's your smile that stays forever
We have a home here together

I hear your whispers in the wind
Shouting louder just to tell me you're still here

It feels just like heaven
If I just close my eyes
And I drift away
Drift away
Heaven is not too far if you close your eyes
Let it take you where you need to go
Drift away

It feels just like heaven
If I just close my eyes
And I drift away
Drift away
Heaven is not too far if you close your eyes
Let it take you far away
Drift away

You gave me a reason
To love you more
Every time that I was near you
You gave me laughter through your eyes

And I had a vision
Late last night
Of us walking all together
Hand in hand we touched the sky

And we hear your whispers in the wind
Shouting louder just to tell us you're still here

It feels just like heaven
If I just close my eyes
And I drift away
Drift away
Heaven is not too far if you close your eyes
Let it take you where you need to go
Drift away

It feels just like heaven
If I just close my eyes
And I drift away
Drift away
Heaven is not too far if you close your eyes
Let it take you far away
Drift away
