This was written by Terry in 98 in memory of his Dad, who was a pilot, and their many afternoons flying together when Terry was young. Not our best recording, perhaps, but a sweet, sincerely nostalgic song.

Lyrics
GIFT OF THE SKY (c) T.R. Taylor THE FIELD LAY IN THE SUMMER SUN OF 1959 THERE WAS A SLEEK AND SHINY BIRD THAT GAVE THE SUN LIFE IN MY MIND AS BRAVE AS ANY HERO, HE WAS IN MY EYES THE MAN WHO MADE A GIFT OUT OF THE SKY AND WE WOULD FLY RUSHING PAST THE OPEN COCKPIT IN A ROAR OF WIND AND NOISE THE WORLD WOULD FALL AWAY AND I WOULD SOMEHOW REALIZE THAT NOTHING COULD EVER HOLD ME DOWN OR TAKE AWAY MY SKY AND I’LL REMEMBER TIL THE DAY I DIE HOW WE WOULD FLY I CAN STILL SEE YOU THROUGH THE RUSHING WATER ON THE GLASS TEARS THAT WERE SHED BY THE HEART OF A CLOUD I HEAR YOUR VOICE CALM AND SURE BENEATH THE THUNDER CRASH AND ALL THAT WAS UNSPOKEN THEN NOW IT SPEAKS SO LOUD WHAT ARE THE GIFTS THAT I CAN GIVE? WHAT HAVE I SAVED? DO I STILL OWN THE SKY, AM I STILL BRAVE ENOUGH TO FLY ? A ROOM SO DARK AND STILL ON THE HORIZON OF TODAY TEARS UPON THE PILLOW WHERE THE SLEEPING CHILD STILL LAYS DREAMING OF THE BRIGHTEST STAR THAT EVER SHONE ON HIGH THE MAN WHO MADE A GIFT OUT OF THE SKY AND WE WOULD FLY
