  1. Music, That Is

From the recording Singles

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

I 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
