about

An exquisite love song of infinite proportions. Could it be the ghosts of Irving Berlin and Hoagy Carmichael or these lush textures and dreamy images Kevin conjures up for Barbara to so eloquently occupy?

lyrics

"Lullabye"

Twilight suits you well
Shadows and pastels
Violet blends with indigo and slowly starts to melt.

There goes the horizon
Here comes Jupiter
A moment of perfection in this less-than-perfect world
When I was holding on
Holding on...
to you.

Moonlight soft and pale
Stars peek through the veil
A ship floats in the harbor
Can you see it's flowing sails?

It's setting off for Dreamland
You'd best get underway
Please carry my love with you
Upon God's celestial waves
And I'll be holding on
Holding on...
to you.

Always know my love will find you,
You are tethered to my heart.
I will never let you go.

Even if a bitter wind leaves you scared and cold,
you're not alone.

In the morning when you rise
May morning birds stop by
And perch outside your window
Serenade you for awhile.

Dress yourself in happiness,
Set out with a smile,
Remember I am with you
Every moment, every mile.
And I'll keep holding on
Holding on...
I'll be holding on
Holding on...
to you.

"It's actually the people of America who wrote these songs," said Kevin Higgins, the duo's main songwriter. "They told us their stories and we listened."
