Morning Star


"Morning Star"
Music & Lyrics by Scott Cooley.

As I look out at the evening’s end, a morning star is my only friend

The last bastion of a perfect night, fading away now in the dawn’s early light

It was so hard to leave you, so hard to take you home, now I feel like I’ve got nowhere to go

I’ve never felt so alive, and all I wanna do, is let you know

A beautiful reminder to brighten my day, a morning star shows me the way

To remember you and the love I feel, to let me know my dream was real

We stayed so close, all night long, I never wanted to let you go

I know I love you, and all I wanna do, is let you know

Why must nights turn to days?  Why must we go our separate ways?

How can I make my wishes come true?  And keep the sky from turning blue?

The world turns on but what a place, a morning star brings a smile to my face

I hope some day we’ll be together again, our night will last forever in my mind until then

Your kisses felt like heaven, you must be an angel, I never want to sink back down low

It felt so right, and all I wanna do, is let you know

Brief Description

This is a song that I wrote very quickly.  It was one of those that felt like it just flowed through me, and afterward, it was hard to believe I actually wrote it.  It sounds like a song that was already a song, like one you think you might've heard before somewhere.  If it actually is just like some other existing song someone else wrote, let me know - maybe I subconsciously wrote it to sound like like a song I'd heard sometime in my past by accident, but I seriously doubt it.  Geez, I hope not - that would be a bummer.  Anyway, I consider this to be quite a beautiful sounding ballad, if I do say so myself.  Keep in mind this is coming from someone who is usually known to be self-deprecating, for what it's worth.  This is going to be funny to admit, but since launching my website, I've done some ego surfing - googling myself to see where I fall in the search results - and there's always this other Scott Cooley who works for a company called Morning Star who comes up first in the page rankings or whatever those are called, so I actually started this song by coming up with the title first, thinking that if I published a song with a similar name, somehow that would alleviate this little annoyance.  Very strange, I know, but it produced a good song.
