about

Eric Harper Nanaimo, British Columbia

I remember I was in the kitchen doing the dishes when some song came on the radio. I immediately stopped what I was doing, quickly ran into the living room and just stared at the stereo. I was transfixed, mesmerized. I literally couldn’t take my eyes off the stereo. I was so moved by emotion that all I remember thinking was “I want to make people feel like that!” ... more

Track Name: Rain
Rain

There’s a growing storm around me
The howling of the wind screams in my ears
The flood of bitter reasons
Was not enough to bring back my family

And it all rains down on me
Like a million tears from the sea
I don’t know where I was on that day
‘Cause it was raining down on me

I see my own family
Six billion maybe more drowning in the sea
And all their dreams float past me
Like the words of love that all went unsaid

And it all rains down on me
As the ocean empties the sea
I don’t know where you were on that day
I just recall you told me one thing

You wanna cry
You wanna scream
Baby that’s alright with me

You wanna cry
You wanna scream
Baby that’s alright with me

Baby that’s alright with me
Baby that’s alright with me

And it all rains down on me
As the ocean empties the sea
I don’t know where you were on that day
I just recall you told me one thing

(Chorus)

‘Cause you are the hope
That’s raining on me
And baby that’s alright by me

Yes, you are the hope
That’s raining on me
And baby that’s alright by me
Track Name: Cream & Suga'
Cream & Suga’

Do you like yours with Cream & Suga’
Do you like yours with Cream & Suga’
Do you like yours with Cream & Suga
Do you like yours with Cream & Suga’

‘Cause I could be
I could be
Your cream & suga’
I could be
Oh i could be
The sweetness in your life
Track Name: You Complete Me
You Complete Me

Staring ‘cross the ocean
The ocean in your eyes
Diving into feelings
I never thought were mine
And how I found a heart like
A spring in April’s bloom
How I found new meaning
Standing next to you

So I hope you understand
I hope you understand
Oh, I hope you understand
I hope you understand
Oh, I hope you understand
I hope you understand
You’re the meaning of it all
You know, you complete me

If someone were to tell me
That I’d be meeting you
I wouldn’t take it seriously
I’d chase away the news
I didn’t think me able
To be so deep in love
I thought it merely fable
To feel so much for one

(Chorus)

…complete me
…complete me
If someone were to tell me
That I’d be meeting you…

Staring ‘cross the ocean
The ocean in your eyes…

(Chorus)
Track Name: Somebody Else's Love Story
Somebody Else's Love Story


Saw the leaves change from green to red
Something in the air told me winter was coming
As I inclined my head I could see
That now your heart was in somebody else’s love story

If there’re no happy endings
If there’s no such thing as love stories
Then why’d you promise me some fairy tale?

And somewhere a prince fades from history
Written for a tale that no one can remember
Turns to his love but all he sees
Is that her heart is in somebody else’s love story

(Chorus)

Let’s tell a story
With pages of pain ripped from my bleeding heart
What consolation
Would you have me sing
To rid the memories from the hole in my heart

…my heart
…my heart

Nothing left here but a withered dream
Etched in my heart like gnarled tree trunk promises
To survive the years for all to see
Now that your heart is in somebody else’s love story

If there’re no happy endings
If there’s no such thing as love stories
If nothing can turn this page
Then how will I end our love story?
Track Name: Missing in the Dark
Missing in the dark



If i go missing in the dark
Illuminate your heart so I can find you
‘Cause in this forest we call life
The howling winds of hate and fear are growing stronger

And i can’t sing this song forever
‘Cause we’re running out of time
If we don’t...find a way to get along
We’ll go missing...in the dark

We draw a line around our hearts
And keep the ones we fear from crossing over
i’ll strike a chord to make a spark
And set the lines of fear around our hearts on fire

And i can’t sing this song forever
‘Cause we’re running out of time
If we don’t...find a way to get along
We’ll go missing...in the dark

And I can’t sing this song forever...my friend
Yes, I need you
To help unite the hearts together
‘Cause we’re running out of time
If we don’t find a way to get along
We’ll go missing...in the dark

And we’ll go missing in the dark (3x)
Track Name: Starry Night
Starry Night
Dedicated to my beautiful wife, Melody
by: Eric Harper


I’ve followed a falling star
Sat by my window and played thru the night
I’ve sung to the man in the moon
But never sang a song for someone like you

I know that sometimes life is hard at times
And we’ll go thru many tests and many trials
But i know you’ll stand by me THRU ALL OF THESE THINGS
AND WE’LL FLY UP HIGH
THROUGH THE STARRY NIGHT
LIKE A CONSTELLATION OF LIFE

I’ve followed a shining star
Sat by my window and prayed to the night.
I’ve danced by the light of the moon
But never thought I’d meet somebody like you

I know that sometimes life is hard at times
And we’ll go thru many tests and many trials
But i know i’ll stand by you THRU ALL OF THESE THINGS
AND WE’LL FLY UP HIGH
THROUGH THE STARRY NIGHT
LIKE A CONSTELLATION OF LIFE
JUST YOU AND I








“Be like unto
like unto
two pure
mirrors
reflecting
the stars of
the stars of the heaven of
LOVE AND BEAUTY”

I’ve talked to the stars in the sky
Sat by my window and sang to the night
I’ve seen the sun smile at the moon
But never dreamed i’d meet somebody...like you


“...be like unto two pure mirrors reflecting the stars of the heaven of love and beauty.” - ‘Abdu’l-Bahá
Track Name: Even Though...
Even though...

Even though at times I may not say so
I still love you, I still love you
Even though the words may betray my lips
I still love you, I still love you
Oh, I still love

Even though outside it is winter
A summer breeze fills my heart
Even though outside it is winter
A summer breeze, a summer breeze
Oh, fills my heart

Even though tests and trials surround me
You keep me strong, off my knees
Even though tests and trials surround me
You keep me strong, you keep me strong
Oh, off my knees

Off my knees
Off my knees
Off my knees
Darling oh!

Even though at times I may not say so
I still love you, I still love you
Even though the words may betray my lips
I still love you, I still love you
Oh, I still love you
