Eric Harper’s song “Starry Night” from his CD “Eric Harper”

After Eric Harper’s “Missing In The Dark”, let’s continue the interview about his new CD “Eric Harper”:

Q. The first song that truly struck me besides your guitar mastery on Cream & Suga was Starry Night, and I would say it is my favorite one although I have grown to love the others. Which one is your favorite song on this CD?

A. Hmm…that’s a hard question. That’s like asking a parent who their favorite child is. Though they have a favorite, they may not say it. 😉 It depends. I love them all. Sometimes my favorite is Even Though, with it’s tremendous build up three quarters of the way in. Or Starry Night with its gentleness and then a sudden rush in the middle. I’m very proud of Rain and how well my producer, Joby Baker, was able to bring it to life. I thought for the longest time that that song wasn’t going to come alive as well as I had it in my head and I’m happy to say that I found the producer who could pull the sounds out of my head and put them on this CD.

Starry Night

Dedicated to my beautiful wife, Melody
by: Eric Harper

I’ve followed a falling star
Sat by my window and played thru the night
I’ve sung to the man in the moon
But never sang a song for someone like you

I know that sometimes life is hard at times
And we’ll go thru many tests and many trials
But i know you’ll stand by me THRU ALL OF THESE THINGS
AND WE’LL FLY UP HIGH
THROUGH THE STARRY NIGHT
LIKE A CONSTELLATION OF LIFE

I’ve followed a shining star
Sat by my window and prayed to the night.
I’ve danced by the light of the moon
But never thought I’d meet somebody like you

I know that sometimes life is hard at times
And we’ll go thru many tests and many trials
But i know i’ll stand by you THRU ALL OF THESE THINGS
AND WE’LL FLY UP HIGH
THROUGH THE STARRY NIGHT
LIKE A CONSTELLATION OF LIFE
JUST YOU AND I

“Be like unto
like unto
two pure
mirrors
reflecting
the stars of
the stars of the heaven of
LOVE AND BEAUTY”

I’ve talked to the stars in the sky
Sat by my window and sang to the night
I’ve seen the sun smile at the moon
But never dreamed i’d meet somebody…like you

…be like unto two pure mirrors reflecting the stars of the heaven of love and beauty.
– ‘Abdu’l-Bahá
