The Same Moon by Samantha Harris

The Same Moon Song. Giveaway.

I’ve not been able to get my head in the game. Finding it difficult to focus on what I should be doing is an occupational hazard of working from home and being poorly. You often risk productive time being frustrated.

I used to fight writer’s block and sit looking at the pages. Panic that I will never finish this book. Maybe I’d write something but essentially I’d get little done that was worthwhile. Hours spent forcing yourself to write rarely work.

For me, getting up and moving away from the keyboard is the only answer.

This week I picked up the guitar. I’d formed a some pretty lines whilst staring at the moon from my kitchen window. I was thinking corny thoughts, such as this is the same moon being viewed by billions of people. The same moon we are all looking at or walking under the light of. The same moon my current crush would be looking at.

Saturday, the song line was still in my head. It is the same moon, it is the same stars, it is the same sun for everyone. By Sunday it was forming into a little melody and by Monday I realised I’d written something rather sweet! I think it has an inspirational feel to it, almost like a hymn.

Yesterday, for the first time ever, I was able to work out the notes of my song in my head. I wrote it down with the lyrics after I’d strummed it out on the guitar. By ear. I cried…this is real achievement. Something I never thought I’d be able to do.

It has taken years. I started learning music and to play guitar in my thirties. An amateur photographer David Brockburn gave me a guitar when he moved home and found he had little room for it. It truly was a great gift.

The guitar went in my daughter’s room for a bit then my son’s room and eventually it found it’s way into mine. I wanted to play so badly that so I ordered Bob Power’s ‘Learn Guitar. Book One.’ With Bob’s easy to follow instructions I had the basics down in no time and was playing simple songs and able to pick through most sheet music within months of starting to learn.

Because of bent fingers I’m able to do certain chords rather awkwardly if at all and have to adapt some music for myself. This makes it difficult to play with others, so jam sessions have never happened. Sad face. However, I love playing and my grand daughter is delighted by anything I can manage to sing and play.

This song is going out to everyone. I’ve video’d myself doing the chorus so that you should be able to work out the rest of the song yourself should you wish. There is no fee ever for using the song or adapting the song as you wish as such it is a giveaway. Obviously I wrote it and nothing changes that.

So…here it is .

The video, after the song lyrics, is for the melody and rhythm only not promotion… Please ignore state of me.

G                         Em                      A      Em                    G            Em         A   G   

It is the same moon, it is the same stars, it is the same sun for everyone

It is the same clouds, under the same sky, it is the same birds flying by

We have the same mum, the same dad and all were made from the love they had

It is the same moon, it is the same stars, it is the same sun for everyone

It is the same moon, it is the same stars, it is the same sun for everyone

It is the same moon, it is the same stars, it is the same sun for everyone

It is the same clouds, in the same sky, with the same birds flying by

I look with the same eyes, and feel with same hands

and all our food come from the same land

It is the same moon, it is the same stars, it is the same sun for everyone

It is the same moon, it is the same stars, it is the same sun for everyone

It is the same moon, it is the same stars, it is the same sun for everyone

It is the same waves, it is the same seas and the same fish which swim by me

It is the same trees, it is the same grass

and the same air that we all do breathe

It is the same moon, it is the same stars and it is the same sun for everyone

It is the same moon, the same stars, the same sun for everyone

It is the same moon, the same stars, the same sun for everyone

It is the same moon, the same stars, the same sun for everyone

 (gets faster and faster) I’m envisioning claps

It is the same moon, the same stars, the same sun for everyone

It is the same moon, the same stars, the same sun for everyone

It is the same moon, the same stars, the same sun for everyone

End
