Ventura Sunset

from by Jeffrey Scott Stewart

about

The kernel of emotion that inspired this song came from a picture that I have as my desktop on my computer (and it's the backdrop of the cover shot for this album). That's a Ventura Sunset. It actually happened to be the backdrop of my wedding . . . we got married at the end of the Ventura Pier with that sunset behind us - perfect!

Of course, the song grew, and touches - just TOUCHES - on my love and affection for my hometown.

I'm happy to be a Texan now, but I'm proud to be from Ventura . . . and there's "no place like home".

- Jeffrey Scott Stewart

lyrics

VENTURA SUNSET

I grew up lucky I guess
A California boy
And never too far from the beach
I'd go down to the harbor
In my hometown
And it was beautiful to see

A Ventura Sunset
I imagine that
And no matter where on earth I go
A Ventura Sunset
Takes me back
There really is no place like home

I moved across the country
A long time ago
But I still visit when I can
Look out at the horizon
Feel the ocean breeze
And I remember who I am

A Ventura Sunset
I imagine that
And no matter where on earth I go
A Ventura Sunset
Takes me back
There really is no place like . . .

A Ventura Sunset
I imagine that
And no matter where on earth I go
A Ventura Sunset
Takes me back
There really is no place like home
. . . no place like home
