"Big Sur" as written by and Mason Stewart Jennings....
Just let the disc play
This is a song to give you hope
I wouldn't have it any other way
This is a song to give you hope
When you say

Honey, I'm afraid to sleep
At night, sleep at night
Honey, I'm afraid to sleep
At night, sleep at night

Well, I wish I had my arms around you
This is a song to give hope, just let this thing
Surround you, this is a song to give you hope
When you say

Honey, I'm afraid to sleep
At night, sleep at night
Honey, I'm afraid to leave
Tonight, leave tonight

I said go, go on, go, go on
I said I, I love you truly
So go, go on and get jump
On the finer things

This is a song to give hope
You never know
What the past will bring you
This is a song to give you hope
When you say

Honey, I'm afraid to sleep
At night, sleep at night
Honey, I'm afraid to leave
Tonight, leave tonight

I said go, go on, go, go on
I said I, I love you truly
So go, go on

Forty miles south of Monterey
And the San Lucia hills
The sunshine shone me to sleep
And I dreamt I was alive

I sang myself a song, it went
Know, what you know
Stay when you stay
And go when you go

And I call it intuition, flowers bloom
And hummingbirds fly
Yes, I call it intuition, it gets me by
Sailing on a silver ship out to the open

Lonely and realizing that
Our friendship's been broken
And the funny thing to me is
How quickly it slips away

And leaves you thinking of the things
That were never spoken
And you know loving me is not enough
And I know future is as future does
Sailing on a silver ship out to the open

Lonely and realizing that
Our friendship's been broken
And the funny thing to me is
How quickly it slips away

And leaves you longing for
The things that were never spoken
And you know loving me is not enough
And I know future is as future does

    General CommentGreat song from Mason ... he says this is a song to give you hope, but there is a little bit of regret attached to this. He knows that some relationships are meant to end, but he wishes it didn't have to be this way. Love the words ... "And the funny thing to me is how quickly it slips away. And leaves you longing for the things that were never spoken." Ah the dreams of what could have been.

    General CommentMason introduced this song at a concert one time. He said it was about a time he really love someone, but he knew that things weren't going to work out in the long run, and that he had to break their heart. He sounded like he might cry when he explained it.

    The song tries so hard to sell the breakup as a good thing. I often wonder how it went over.
