Have You Heard Or Seen Vancouver Sunset?

Updated on October 11, 2014

Have you seen Vancouver Sunset?

What is Vancouver Sunset? How do you make a CD and music video at home? Vancouver Sunset is a music video I made for Flying To Meet The Sunrise while in British Columbia. Vancouver Sunset is a country style song I wrote in 2006 and released on my CD Flying To Meet The Sunrise last year. The image of a sunset at Vancouver airport as I left caught my imagination and the feeling and experiences I had wrote themselves into a song about being in love in and with BC.


The image is the government building in Victoria. My video is made with very simple software from my own images and is an attempt to share a little bit of magic that keeps me coming back again and again.....

Vancouver Sunset Imagery

Lyrics to Vancouver Sunset

Listen to the song for the imagery. There is only so much I could include in my short video, but explore that imagery as much as you like. Please note, you are welcome to sing along or share the video, but the copyright for all songs on Flying to Meet the Sunrise is held on my behalf for PRS for Music in the UK and you would need to approach them to record or perform the song in concert. Here is the sheet music for Vancouver Sunset on score exchange, just click on the title.

Here are the lyrics:

Vancouver Sunset.

Vancouver sun set on the tears I tried to hide;

So long without you, then I had to leave your side.

It seems all my life I struggled

Then surrender won the prize -

And I'm flying to meet the Sunrise in your eyes.

Majestic mountains with their canopies of green,

The scent of cedar where the air is fresh and clean

Surrounded by such Heaven

Finding Love was no surprise

So I'm flying to meet the Sunrise in your eyes.

Smiling by the Lake and holding hands,

Sitting in the Park hearing Mission's bands,

Bouncing on a Zodiac way, way out at sea,

Sharing each and every happy day,

Living the free and simple way,

We watched the whales,

We served the Saints,

We shared each other's dreams.

How can I tell you what each moment meant to me?

I know you love me and our Love is meant to be -

And though we are apart

Our Souls are One - we must not cry -

Now I'm flying to meet the Sunrise in your eyes.

Lisa Gabriel, 11th August 2006

The Lower Falls at Gold Creek

Singing at the Lower Falls, Gold Creek, Golden Ears.

This is the waterfall I was singing in, the water in this image is much lower. This year the lake was very much deeper than usual and the river was much deeper and faster. Possibly also colder? I must have bear genes in me somewhere!

      @Sylvestermouse: Thank you! Yes, it is all me, I played the guitars and did all the vocals, the rest (bass, drums and fiddle) is synthesized using Sibelius 5 on my computer :)
