about

Heather Miller Fairfield, Iowa

I love music and I'm so grateful for all the gifts it has brought to my life. In May 2011, I took a huge leap of faith and moved from Iowa down to Austin for a year, to study at Rubicon Artist Development and make my first EP called "Anchor". I'm now back in Iowa, CD in hand, excited to share it with the world! ... more

Track Name: Lazy Saturday
LAZY SATURDAY

Cup of coffee dark with cream
Eggs with buttered toast
Staring up at ceiling beams
Waking slow from lasting dreams

On a

Lazy Saturday
Let's just stay in bed
Lazy Saturday
Take what we can get
We have to make each moment last
When the weekend speeds by so fast
Wish every day could be
a Lazy Saturday

Twin bed never had this hold
on my morning limbs
Your warmth is a fishing pole
Reel me in to your life boat

Lazy Saturday
Let's just stay in bed
Lazy Saturday
Take what we can get
We have to make each moment last
When the weekend speeds by so fast
Wish every day could be
a Lazy Saturday

You know we might not always have this time alone
If you go bring more coffee I'll turn off my phone

Lazy Saturday
Let's just stay in bed
Lazy Saturday
Take what we can get
We have to make each moment last
When the weekend speeds by so fast
Wish every day could be
a Lazy Saturday

Lazy, lazy, lazy, lazy, lazy, lazy
Lazy Saturday
Track Name: Winter Time
WINTER TIME
Frost is creeping
Up my window
Trying to keep it from my heart
You are sleeping
But I can't go
Frozen here before I start

It's winter time
winter time

Days of summer
Words unspoken
Echo through my lonely head
Barefoot pavement
Sunburn peeling
Layers of an angry red

but
It's winter time
winter time

I'm looking for the light
to get me through this night
put a candle in the window for me

It's winter time
winter time
winter time

Track Name: She Doesn't Mind
She's a pretty girl, with her long blonde hair
Her daddy keeps asking her when she's getting married
He's getting on in years, and he wants someone to take care of her
But she can't seem to tell him in a way he'll understand, that

She doesn't mind living alone
In her big farm house with her unlisted phone
There's a lawn to mow, chickens to feed, loyal dogs to keep her company
And at night boy, can't she see the stars

She's a pretty girl, with her wide blue eyes
Been to Africa and Mexico, Hong Kong, Italy, France
She can hold her own in the office with the guys
But she can't seem to tell them in a way they'll understand, that

She doesn't mind living alone
In her big farm house with her unlisted phone
There's a lawn to mow, chickens to feed, loyal dogs to keep her company
And at night boy, can't she see the stars

She's a pretty girl, with her two skilled hands
That can sculpt and draw and bake a pie, or a gourmet cake
She gets the strength she needs from the Lord and the land
If you saw her in her garden, you might start to understand

Why she doesn't mind living alone
In her big farm house with her unlisted phone
There's a lawn to mow, chickens to feed, loyal dogs to keep her company

Quilts on the bed, plates on the wall, friends in the kitchen, yeah she's got it all
Grandma's old dolls, Grandpa's John Deere, why would she ever move away from here?
Beautiful views from her front porch swing, she's got pretty much everything

And at night boy, can't she see the stars
And at night boy, can't she see the stars
Oh at night boy, she can see those stars

Track Name: My Bright Star
The day you left
the sunset was incredible
Golden horizon underneath a turquoise sky
And those little pink clouds
Were floating in heaven and
it was so beautiful I didn't even want to cry
So I walked on a little bit further
and I saw a bright star
Or maybe a satellite
And I thought
I don't ever have to worry
about losing you because
No matter where you are
You'll always be shining like that star

The night you left
We all went out dancing
Trying to prove to ourselves that life would still go on
And if we had more fun
than we thought we would
It was in those moments
we forgot you were gone
And three times
on that cold December evening
When we walked out
We saw shooting stars
I don't know if it's an omen
But three's a lucky number
And no matter where you are
We can both dance under the stars

Early next morning
the moon was a fat and dusty pearl
Swimming through the sunrise clouds
sinking into dreams
and I thought
If the whole sky's celebrating
all day and all night
maybe your going
isn't as bad as it seems
And the real reason
that you had to go away
may become clear to me
a little bit later
I don't know when we will meet again
and I know it's not the same
But no matter where you are
I'll always love you from afar

No matter where you are
I'll always love you my bright star
I'll always love you my bright star
Track Name: Jonah's Whale - Live at Wildflower Pavilion
I am just a simple whale
I sing my way across the ocean
But when Jonah’s ship set sail
An age old plan was put in motion

I was appointed on the day that I was born
I won’t spite the hand that feeds me
He doesn’t ask too often and He doesn’t ask too much
I will do as my Lord needs me

When they threw Jonah to the waves
I was waiting there to catch him
That bellyacher banged my belly for three days
It was worse than indigestion

I was appointed on the day that I was born
I won’t spite the hand that feeds me
He doesn’t ask too often and He doesn’t ask too much
I will do as my Lord needs me

Then the man inside made peace
The struggle in my gut was over
I heaved him out upon the beach
Turned to face the deep and dove there

I was appointed on the day that I was born
I won’t spite the hand that feeds me
He doesn’t ask too often and He doesn’t ask too much
I will do as my Lord needs me

I was appointed on the day that I was born
I won’t spite the hand that feeds me
He doesn’t ask too often and He doesn’t ask too much
I will do as my Lord needs me

I am just a simple whale
I sing my way across the ocean
