Insomnia In Search of a Title (Breaking Orbit) 
30th-Dec-2008 09:23 am
Below is what I was working on when I couldn't sleep night before last. The lyrics and music are done, but the song is being stubbornly resistant to any title that I try to give it.

Any suggestions?

(Chorus)
If you’re tired of sitting ‘round and feeling blue,
Let’s put our heads together.
We’ll find a way in any weather.
There’s no need for looking ‘round for something new,
‘Cause nothing could be better
Than to spend some time with you.

When you’re going round in circles wearing ruts into the ground
And you’re searching for solutions to the boredom that we’ve found,
Let’s take that old remote and stop the TV for a night
And find a pair of candles and a match to give us light.

If the strains of modern living are enough to break your back,
Let’s take our conversation somewhere off the beaten track.
Let’s talk of bright tomorrows and of walks upon the moon
And folks who won the battle by not giving up too soon.

(Bridge)
Let’s take a walk beneath a starry sky.
We’ll see that there is more than meets the eye.
And listening with a sympathetic ear,
We’ll find that there’s a better way to hear.

If we see the sun rise, ‘cause we’ve talked all through the night,
Well, things just might look better when we see them in the light.
The bits of life that made us blue may not have gone away,
But I’m happy that I’m here with you to face another day.

(Coda)
Nothing is too hard when I am here with you
And I’ll meet you in the morning
On the far side of the moon.

Thanks! The first one was the winner. And exactly the feeling I wanted to convey. :)
