Deep Sky

(Dean Madonia)

About "Deep Sky":
People let you down when they don't do what YOU want them to do. The title of the CD is Deep Sky because I am a fan of space. I used the metaphors of motion distance and gravity throughout the CD (ending with the song "The Big Crunch"). This title track was the hardest song I ever wrote - took 7 months to complete and I thought it helped cause an irrepairable rift in our friendship, now we are friends again.
"Deep Sky"
(Dean Madonia)

Different circles, endless cycles you,
Like the movement of the heavens
Have drifted, shifted into something new
Like a distant sun
That died long ago for me in you
Time is distance, and clouds my view

It all comes down to gravity
Pulling you, pulling me
We're not acting on each other like we used to
From the same system though different eyes
You stare into the sun and I

I'm looking to the deep sky
I'm drawn into the Deep sky
Look into the deep sky

I remember living for the day
When the world that we believed in
Would be watching, waiting, for us to come it's way
Like a distant sun that died long ago for you in me
Time is distance, but I can see


It all comes down to gravity
Pulling you, pulling me
We're not acting on each other like we used to
From the same system though different eyes
You stare into the sun and I

I'm looking to the deep sky
I'm drawn into the Deep sky
Look into the deep sky

Year after weary year, I've tried to hide my fear
I need to go away
Even if you stay
I've wanted you to do
What I expect of you
I hope you'll learn to see
The deep sky inside of me


It all comes down to gravity
Pulling you, pulling me
We're not acting on each other like we used to
From the same system though different eyes
You stare into the sun and I

I'm looking to the deep sky
I'm drawn into the Deep sky
Look into the deep sky
