Lyrics of "Your Universe" by Rico Blanco.

I am one of those who felt bad when Rico Blanco left his band Rivermaya, but found relief when he released his solo album after a couple of months or possibly a year of musical vacuum. Anyway, the long wait is worth it as Rico Blanco continues to impress us with his musical genius.

I personally love his song “Your Universe” which showcase Rico’s songwriting skills. The lyrics are superb. It also features former bandmate Nathan Azarcon (Rivermaya, Bamboo) on bass and Wendell Garcia (Barbie's Cradle, Pupil) on drums.

“Your Universe” lyrics

Tell me something
When the rain falls on your face
How do you quickly replace
It with
A golden summer smile?

Tell me something
When I'm feelin' tired and afraid
How do you know just what to say
To make
Everything alright?

I don't think that you even realize
The joy you make me feel when I'm inside
Your universe
You hold me like I'm the one who's precious
I hate to break it to you but it's just
The other way around
You can thank your stars all you want but
I'll always be the lucky one

Tell me something
When I'm 'bout to lose control
How do you patiently hold
My hand
And gently calm me down?

Tell me something
When you sing and when you laugh
Why do I always photograph
My heart
Flyin way above the clouds?
