Story

This is a song we really wish we weren't inspired to do.  In the Summer of 2005, we lost a dear friend, and the original drummer for Terashain to a heart attack.  Over time, many of the tears have turned to grins, but not a day goes by that I don't think of this dude!  What a Guy!  We were honored to have original Terashain guitarist, and Mike's brother Jon come in and do the solo on the track.  It can't be easy to nail a guitar solo for a song written about your late brother. Jon Anderson is the consumate professional, and a great friend.                  

We miss you Mike, and think of you always.

 

 

Lyrics

I’ve had lots of time these last few days

Just to sit and think

Of how you’ve touched my life so many ways

And what you’ve meant to me

Now the door you have before you

Only you can go through

Ooooh, I wish you well

 

Some things I think that you should know

That I never got to say

Your friendship meant the world to me

And I long for one more day

Of making memories and music

Right now we all could use it

You know, this hurts like hell

 

And I look to the sky and I close my eyes

I can see that one door closes and another opens wide

It’s the circle we all start in

Our spirits taking part in

A fearless dance of time

 

It seems time is hard to find these days

And you’ll miss it if you blink

I send a message to the ones I love

And I don’t have to stop and think

 

And I look to the sky and I wonder why

It has to be that one door closes and another opens wide

My son will come to know you

Through the stories I hold onto

You’ll always bring a smile

 

And I look to the sky and I close my eyes

I can see that one door closes and another opens wide

It’s the circle we all start in

Our spirits taking part in

A fearless dance of time

 

I’ve had lots of time these last few days

Just to sit and think…

 

Wish you well

You’ll always bring a smile

I can see that one door closes…

And another opens wide, I wonder why?
