When I was younger, my piano teacher knew that I was drawn to achingly sweet, expressive, melodic songs. She found me this piece which became one of my all time favorite songs. Sadly, when I recorded this song over 5 years ago, we only had time to do one take and I performed it rather poorly. However, while I certainly didn’t do this exquisite piece justice, I think you’ll understand (in spite of the wrong notes, hesitation, and mistakes) why I love it so much. There’s such longing in this melody, an sweet yet aching yearning for what was. But there’s joy there too; joy in remembering, but even more, a passionate refusal to forget.
