  • Don't you change

    Some walk by night
    Some fly by day
    Nothing could change you
    Set and sure of the way

    Charming and bright
    Laughing and gay
    I'm just a stranger
    Love the blues and the Braves

    There is the sun and moon
    Facing their old, sweet tune
    Watch them when dawn is due
    Sharing one space

    Some walk by night
    Some fly by day
    Something is sweeter
    When you meet 'long the way

    So come walk the night
    Come fly by day
    Something is sweeter
    'Cause we met 'long the way

    We'll walk by night
    We'll fly by day
    Moonlighting strangers
    Who just met on the way
    Who just met on the way


    TV series version:

    Some walk by night
    Some fly by day
    Nothing could change you
    Set and sure of the way

    There is the sun and moon
    They sing their own sweet tune
    Watch them when dawn is due
    Sharing one space

    We'll walk by night
    We'll fly by day
    Moonlighting strangers
    Who just met on the way

  • The Designated Driver (atg) from Cle Nyc CleIt's a shame but not surprising of how the usual excess attention is given to the worst song of an artist's repertoire and then the artist is dismissed somehow for not repeating it's success.
  • Rodger Mccutcheon from New Zealandwho was the drummer on this track ?
