Music, That Is

Story

An ode, a love song, to music itself. How it envelopes us, gets inside of us, carries and comforts us... utterly lives within us. A gentle beginning verse finds its way to a stronger, heavier second verse, and ultimately the piece builds to a powerful, chill-inspiring, climax in the tradition of Queen... or dare I say... the best work Barry Manilow? 

Lyrics

HOME ONE EVENING / LATE AND DARK

I FLIPPED ON THE CONCERT IN CENTRAL PARK

ARTIE AND SIMON WERE DOING THEIR THING

I HUMMED ALONG / AND I BEGAN TO SING

THEN OUT OF NOWHERE / TEARS CAME TO MY EYES

ONCE IN AWHILE / I RE-REALIZE

DIVINE INSPIRATION / UNDENIABLY HIS

WHAT A WONDERFUL PRESENCE / MUSIC, THAT IS


A CONDUCTOR OF EMOTION / DARKNESS TO JOY

A WITHERED OLD MAN / TO AN EIGHT YEAR OLD BOY

SICK AND IN PRISON / TO HEALTHY AND FREE

IT’S MINE ALL ALONE / WHAT A SONG MEANS TO ME

DEEP DOWN IN THE HEART / WHERE HARMONY LIVES

WHAT TANGIBLE TONIC / MUSIC, THAT IS


HOPE I HAVEN’T ALREADY WRITTEN MY BEST

I’VE BEEN REJECTED I’VE BEEN PUT TO THE TEST

AND THROUGH IT ALL I MUST ADMIT I’VE BEEN BLESSED

TO SIMPLY SING


FLESHING IT OUT / BREATHING IT IN

MELTS IN YOUR MOUTH / SOAKS THROUGH YOUR SKIN

SWEET COMPENSATION / TO HELP FILL THE HOLE

DESCENDS LIKE AN ANGEL / AND SPEAKS TO MY SOUL

PLANTS WITHOUT PREJUDICE / AN INVISIBLE KISS

MY DARLING COMPANION / MUSIC, THAT IS
