Byourself The music and sound of this song is very symbiotically together. Above and Beyond their already outstanding sound, this song - if any example of the other songs on their new CD - pads through ones ears until it penetrates your heart. The Bye Bye Blackbirds continue to exude their special sound of infinite talent. They have done it again and I believe always will; as if there was ever any doubt about these gifted musicians. Rock on Gentlemen! This pre release is a winner. As usual I wait for more.

Track Name: Duet
Out under the moonlight
Up and down the streets you wander
From the open windows come songs that we both know
You sing high and I’ll fall in
Down the streets and through the city
And I will sing with you but I can’t make the show

Sing it all by yourself
Like it’s you and me and no one else
I will sing with you but I can’t make the show

This chord’s a major
These heartstrings ring and chime
You set the tempo
You know how it goes
I can’t remember
These words I meant to write
You say it better
Show me how it goes


Lately I’ve been searching through all the records that you left me
Trying to find you waiting in songs that we both know
Wishing I could hear your voice ring out with me one more time
But it’s too late now you’ll never make the show

Sing it all by myself
Like it’s you and me and no one else
I will sing with you but you can’t make the show

Don’t worry baby
We’re never far apart
Open your window and walk with me down through the city
