"If I Came Back As a Song" has been featured in the PBS series Roadtrip Nation and was awarded third place in the 2007 International Songwriting Contest. Especially meaningful since one of the judges was Tom Waits, a long time inspiration for Barnaby Bright.

lyrics

If I Came Back As a Song
by Nathan Bliss

I wonder if I could come back as a song
Live in a melody that would linger on and on
I’d make my home inside a folk record sleeve
Dylan’s ‘Freewheelin’ from nineteen sixty three
Track two

So you could play me when you’re feeling down
I would wrap you up inside my happy sound
Riding on the airwaves I would fly to you
Maybe then you’d love me too…if I came back as a song

Then they could shoot me from a cold satellite
Into a radio that you sleep by at night
And you would call out “This is my favorite song!”
I’d feel so happy watching you sing along
Let’s do…

So you can sing me when you’re feeling sad
I could be the best song friend you ever had
Riding on the airwaves I would fly to you
Maybe then you’d love me too
If I came back as a song

And you could sing me when you’re feeling down
I would wrap you up inside my happy sound
Riding on the airwaves I would fly to you
Take you higher than Keith Moon…
If I came back as a song
