This is a song I wrote sitting on the the beach in San Diego watching the sunset and then the stars in the early 90s. It wasn't until 2010 that I thought of this song
and re-arranged it and recorded it. I played all the instruments except the guitars that were played by James Mckee and Dave MacKenzie listed in the credits in more detail.


Crystal Eyes

Looking out over the ocean the sea
Cherry red day fallin’ oh how could it be
Lights begin to sparkle in the ponderous westward sky
To say hello and yet to say goodbye

Water grabbing onward and taking the earth from me
As if to say that time is confined oh can’t you see
Seagulls floating upward in the coastal winds to fight
Higher and higher to reach those neon lights (of those)

Crystal Eyes upon the horizon (Those)
Crystal Eyes upon the horizon
Oh and I will keep you, I will treat you, til’ the morning light
Oh and I will cherish, you’re the parish in the air tonight

Inbetween the soothing sands and the brightly lighten stars
People headed home it’s closing time for bars
Not even a notice of the picture plain in sight
Not even a stare at the painting of the night (Of those..)

CH – 2X’s

Solo – 8 measures

CH 3X’s – then vamp

You’re in the air tonight

I would like to thank James McKee for rhythm distorted guitar and lead guitar through the song and the use of his studio for the drum track. I
would also like to thank Dave "Dmac" MacKenzie
for the clean rhythm guitar and the guitar solo at the end of this tune.
