Description
Short Song Description:
This is an exercise in trying to follow a style.
Long Song Description:
There is no real big story behind his tune. I was working with some bossa-novas and wrote some very nice lyrics. That is all.
Story Behind the Song:
This is a very pretty love song that needs a crooner to make it work. I was trying for a standard fell with a bossa-nova beat.

Mummers and Sighs
late at night
I try to tell you how I feel inside
and that everything will be alrighjt
My words all stumble and my thoughts collide
so I fumble for the light.

Secrets and dreams
never told.
I can't expect you to understand
nothing can compare.
I hear the music but can't see the band
still I know its there.

Chorus;
Mummers and Sighs of secrets and dreams
are all that I have till I think of you.
Then I realize all that it means
to hold you so close when the moments are few.


Whispers of love
through candlelight.
All the thoughts that I hoped to share
when the moment was right
have been carried off as if on pirate air
and I can only recite.

Reasons and rhymes
and mixed metaphors.
They're small attempts at romance
by some word shy troubadour
trying to match the elegance
of the one he adores.

Chorus;

Mummers and Sighs of secrets and dreams
are all that I have till I think of you.
Then I realize all that it means
to hold you so close when the moments are few
