lyrics & facts...
Written and arranged by Alana herself, this song takes on a cinematic/soundtrack feel as it explores the concept of long, lost love.The initial concept for this song came together as Alana heard tales from her grandparents about their time during war and the sense of longing that occurs when one’s true love is far away from home and in a dangerous situation. Alana received a HC from  2013 Sydney Eisteddfod original composition open age event.

(Verse 1)
Eyes closed, tears falling down
lips dry, words running out
She prays that he’ll be safe
Tonight
Hands clenched, she’s holding tight
The last letter he writes
It ties to her heart
Tonight
(pre-chorus)
All the hours
Every minute in the day
Waiting…waiting…. waiting…
waiting…
(chorus)
In a small wooden box she holds them
Longing to hear his voice
Over and over she reads them again
Imagining he’s there
Letters —
another letter—–
another letter to write
Letters —
another letter—
another letter arrives
(Verse 2)
He stops to make a wish
Upon a shooting star
He wishes they weren’t so far
Apart

Missing the way she smiled
Across the many miles
Emotions travelling
Tonight
(pre-chorus)
All the hours
Every minute he’s away
Wishing…
wishing….
wishing
(Chorus 2)
In a small metal box he’s keeps them
longing to hear her voice
Over and over he reads them again
Imagining she’s there
Letters —
another letter—–
another letter to write
Letters —
another letter—
Another letter arrives
(ending)
The last letter arrives

(Verse 1)
Walking to school and the rain is falling
Down, down, down on my head
My hair and my shoes are getting
Soa-soa soa-king wet

I reach the gate and
find my friends
they turn around and pretend
that I am not there
No one care

(Pre-chorus)
But I still hold my head up high
Nothing can stop me and I’ll get by
(Chorus)
Today is a new day
And I’ll find my own way
In this unpredictable world
It might take a long time
But I’ll get there sometime
And achieve the dreams that I dream
(interlude)
(scat or vocal improvisation)..
(Verse 2)
The sun is now shining
And rain has gone away
I know that tomorrow’s gonna be
A-O-K
What a day that I have had
With smiles and frowns
Good and bad
L –O- L

(Pre-chorus)

But I still hold my head up high
Nothing can stop me and I’ll get by
(Chorus)
Today is a new day
And I’ll find my own way
In this unpredictable world
It might take a long time
But I’ll get there sometime
And achieve the dreams that I dream
(outro)

[Verse 1]
Whenever I’m with you
I don’t know what to do
But the sky is always blue
As long as I’m with you
Whenever I am with you
I don’t know what to do
But the sun is shining through
As long as I’m with you

[Chorus 1]
Why do I feel I shine like a shining star
Whether you are near or far
It feels so right
Why do I feel I glow like the glowing moon
Whether its night or noon
It feels so right.

[Verse 2]
Wherever I am with you
My happiness will show
I’ll never let you go
As long as i’m with you
Whenever I am with you
All of my dreams feel/seem true
You make me feel so good
As long as I am with you

[Chorus 2]
Why do I feel I smile like the smiling sun
Just ‘cuz you’re my honey-hon
It feels so right
Why do I feel I dance like dancing waves
Just ‘cuz you’re my baby-babe
It feels so right

[outro]
Whenever I’m with you
The sky is always blue
The sun is shining through
As long as I’m with you
(Repeat once )
(Whistle…..scat… improvise….fade out)
