When the written and the played cross over…
It's not often that I would write a lyric for a song, although I have penned a couple over the years.

Musical ideas that span pages of score can be condensed into far less words. A sense of longing that can be difficult to express with verse can be explained so clearly with maybe a stringed instrument holding a sustained note.

It is a special thing to find musical meaning from words.

And sometimes the words can inspire a musical creation, which I find a more common occurrence.

And so on some of the musical pages there is verse that I associated with the music or that inspired me to create the tune that you hear.

Sometimes they are a perfect match.
Sometimes they seem lost in the cross over.

But for me they create a harmony of written and played that store a memory to be recalled, so it can not be forgotten.
