The Awe in Autism Project

The Awe in Autism Project

The inspiration for aweinautism.org was the song “for dylan,” written by Awe in Autism cofounder Deborah French and her son Timothy Busching. Deborah wrote the lyrics after meeting cofounder Kim Covell’s son Dylan for the first time. Dylan had been diagnosed with autism at age six.

The song received a wonderful response from those who first heard it; subsequently, filmmaker George Motz, Kim’s brother-in-law, volunteered to produce the music video version. The video premiered in 2007 at Stony Brook University’s Staller Center during an annual fundraiser sponsored by the Cody Center for Autism and Developmental Disabilities. Through that experience, Kim and Deborah realized the potential for creative works of all kinds to provide inspiration for those affected by autism. This site is founded on that belief.

Lyrics

Beautiful boy
like an angel, like an angel
flying away
to another world.

Big clock on the wall
doesn’t tell a thing at all
picture albums on the floor
bits of life, nothing more
empty words that fill a page
like hollow voices on a stage

And the water comes to save you
and you dive into its womb
as the waves crash all around us
in the shadow of the moon.

And I wish you could tell me, I wish you could tell me
what’s inside your head
beautiful boy.

Close the windows of your eyes
under solace of the skies
and dream your starry patchwork dreams
while I sit here and stitch the seams
and pray
Tomorrow is another day.

And the water comes to save you
and you dive into its womb
as the waves crash all around us
in the shadow of the moon.

And I wish you could tell me, I wish you could tell me
what’s inside your head
I wish I could tell you, I wish I could tell you
what’s inside my heart

Beautiful boy
like an angel, like an angel
flying away
to another world.
