Start Your Day
Here To Play

Luke and Owen were born prematurely at 30 weeks.  My wife and I spent many hours in
the NICU first at Beth Israel Hospital and then at Emerson Hospital before Luke and
Owen came home.  Charlie got to visit them right after they were born and then a few
weeks later when they were no longer hooked up to machines.  

I wrote this song one afternoon while holding the two boys on my chest.  Singing was
very soothing for the boys and quite cathartic for me as well.

When Charlie was in 5th grade he became interested in filming himself doing different
tricks outside.  We downloaded video software and began teaching ourselves different
editing techniques.  One beautiful fall day Charlie, Luke and Owen's school had a
teacher in-service day.  We used the day to film a variety of activities and later put them
together in a music video with the soundtrack of "Start Your Day"
It was my first YouTube Video.  Click on the link above to take a look.

Start Your Day by Tim Seston

Open your eyes Owen,
Let the sunlight trickle in
Another night has passed us by
And the day will soon begin
Rise and shine sweet love of mine
Open up your eyes.

Lift your head up a little Luke
Here what’s happening all around
Like the bluebirds singing
And the church bells ringing
There filling the morning with sound
Rise and shine sweet love of mine
It’s time to lift your head

So get up on your feet and get going
It’s time to start your day
There’s a lot to do both me and you
Let’s all get up and play

Chart a new course now Charlie
You’re an older brother now
There’s a lot to learn, if you want a turn
You can show your brothers both how
Rise and shine sweet love of mine
If you want to take your turn

So get up on your feet and get going
It’s time to start your day
There’s a lot to do both me and you
Let’s all get up and play
