My Chicken Little song, which is all about relationship angst, Big Sky Fallin has rather stark lyrics (the sky is falling) juxtaposed agains upbeat music (don't be silly, the sky is not falling). The majority of the lyrics and the chord pattern was written in 2003. The recording has 24 audio tracks, including 4 horns, 3 rhythm guitar tracks, 2 vocal lines (Shirley Jackson on BG vocals), organ, steel drum synth. plus bass and drums.

Big Sky Fallin’ (Harrison)
Takes a sad man to sing a sad song
When I look up you’re all lookin on
I grabbed the sunshine for far too long
Will we find out where we’ve gone wrong?
My freedom escapes me now
One step forward take two back
Big sky fallin all around me now
Won’t you please help me out of this trap?
Head in hands starin through window pane
Walk on by no one knows your name
You tore me apart just don’t do it again
Think I’ll go out take a walk in the rain.
We’re what we said we would never be
Lost and found in some forgotten dream
Big sky’s fallin right on top of me
Now the time that you set me free.
Waves roll up fall onto the beach
Bring new shape onto the shore
Feelin down you know I’m out of reach
You say you love me say no more.
