adventures in dysthymia

Friday, January 08, 2010

I wrote a bossa tune a few years ago and was never quite satisfied with the original lyric. So I wrote this -- it's nothing special but more suited to the song. Apparently, I no longer have a midi of the tune online nor do I keep much music on this computer so I can't link to it right now. You'll just have to trust me when I tell you how marvelous it is! ;)

addendum, 1/11: here is a simple midi file of the tune

EACH NIGHT

Each night she whispers
each of her secrets
To the silent
stars above;
She makes one wish
upon one star,
On the brightest
star, for love.

And the stars are
like shining bells,
Ringing, ringing
in the night.

Each night she listens
no one answers
From the silent
star-filled sky.
Some night, she knows,
if she believes,
Love will come
and she will fly.

And she will be
suddenly beautiful,
Singing, singing
in the night.

Each night she dreams
her prayers are answered
As all prayers
surely are.
And the night is now
suddenly beautiful
When she shines as
the brightest star.

Oh, the stars have
become shining bells,
Ringing, ringing
in the night.
