about

This song is an accidental manifestation. Sy arrived early at Positively 4th St. Studio and was warming up while waiting for the band to start the live recording. Alan, the engineer, hit record just after the first lyric, "There's an 8 in the sky." So we don't hear the opening line.

lyrics

There's an 8 in the sky
Fading fast with daylight
You were born mid-flight
You looked around and thought it was alright

This is how you chose, now this is all you know
This is how you chose, now this is all you know

Amazed at how you see me
I thought by now you’d all leave me
This is what it’s like to be loved
No push, no shove

When you let me go, still keep me close
When you let me go, still keep me close

There's light in the sky
you can't see at night
I was born mid-fight
I felt pain and wanted things right

Winds whip and hiss, everywhere I go there's nowhere I fit
Winds whip and hiss, everywhere I go there's nowhere I fit

The 8, infinite and alone
wherever it is, I'd like to go home
The 8 in the sky
still fading, still sure as daylight

When you let me go, still keep me close
When you let me go, still keep me close
