MaggieJoShapiro sings

The landing page of this site shows a picture of my daughter, my sister, my mom and me singing at one of my sister’s concerts, this was a couple years ago.  There is singing talent on my mother’s side of this family, but honestly, it never gets old when I get the chance to sing with my youngest daughter.  She has been songwriting herself lately, and her natural talent shines through.  Maggie Jo will be joining Open Road on April 30th at Blue Bus Music in Ridgefield, CT.  We’ve asked her to sing one of her original songs called “Flight”.  Deceptively simple at first listen, but if you read the lyrics, which I’ll share with you here, you’ll find the depth.  Remarkable, really.  My girl… I’m thinking e.e.cummings right now… i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart).

Flight

©2016 MaggieJoShapiro

It was you who asked me to dance

But it was me who caught your eye

At your place I didn’t stand a chance

But I know when to say, goodbye

 

I’ve got a flight first thing in the morning

What if I leave without warning

Hold me tight,’ til we see the light  

We can do this one thing – we can do it right

 

I’ve got a ticket in my pocket

Yeah I know you’ll try and stop it

But I go where my heart says so         

Yea I go where my heart says so

Where my heart says so

 

Start the car, I’m going home

And I’m going there alone

Drive all night, ‘til I see the light

A kiss goodbye and then, then I’ll fly

 

By air by train by sea by boat

There’s a way to keep a float

 

I’ve got a ticket in my pocket

Yeah I know you’ll try and stop it

But I go where my heart says so         

Yea I go where my heart says so

Where my heart says so

 

But I go where my heart says so

           

Yea I go where my heart says so

Yea I go where my heart says so

Where my heart says so

I hear the Canaan train blowing, through the back woods tonight, it's not just me you see, that feels a certain knowing...
Original tunes, enjoy!
