All Around You was written for my band, The Story So Far back in the late 80's. I am quite influenced by The Byrds and R.E.M., which is evident in the opening guitar arpeggio. I was trying to make a statement about bringing heaven into the now instead of making it this far away destination that some may or may not get to enter. I began the guitar solo and then Todd finished it for me by punching in. He continued it to the end, pretty nicely. I think it was one take for him. I tried to get that beautiful guitar tone (for the solo) that Danny Kirwan used to get in early Fleetwood Mac.

Lyrics

Heaven tonight will be ours
Heaven will be what we want it to be
Never too late to make a start
Never too soon to feel a part

And every time you look up
Heaven will be there
And every time you wake up
You won’t wonder where to find heaven
It’s in the stars and all around you
It’s all around you

So many reasons
And so little time
So many expressions
For just one line
All of the tear drops
And all of the hate
Can’t be shut out
Out of heaven’s gate

And every time you look up
Heaven will be there
And every time you wake up
You won’t wonder where to find heaven
It’s in the stars and all around you
It’s all around you
