The lyrics of the song about a symphony

Posted by speedygeoff on Monday, February 20, 2012 with 2 comments
Wooden floors, wooden floors whisper
And they creak under your sockless feet
A secret door, a door undiscovered
You knock so gently in case you're heard
A record plays a song that you've not heard
It is perfect, it is home
Everything, now everything's different
It is sweeter on your tongue

Cause you can see the road ahead in your dream
And the engine's more a sigh than a scream
And your ghosts look more like angels from there
And the coast comes like a raft of warm air

A symphony, slow music of longing
Plays in movements inside your head
There are no ghosts, no ghosts that can shake you
Like they used to, anymore
Cause you can see the road ahead in your dream
And the engine's more a sigh than a scream
And your ghosts look more like angels from there
And the coast comes like a raft of warm air

You can see the road ahead in your dream
And the engine's more a sigh than a scream
And your ghosts look more like angels from there
And the coast comes like a raft of warm air

If this is all you ever asked for
Then this is all you'll get
If this is all you ever asked for
Then this is all you'll get
If this is all you ever asked for
Then this is all you'll get
If this is all you ever asked for
Then this is all you'll get
If this is all you ever asked for
Then this is all you'll get
If this is all you ever asked for
Then this is all you'll get
If this is all you ever asked for
Then this is all you'll get
If this is all you ever asked for
Then this is all you'll get

  1. I bet Mozart couldn't have come up with lyrics that good!

  2. No one disses Mozart, he made fun of the upper class through his choice of lyrics, he said things that needed to be said in his time. Problem is the words of slow being considered straight after symphony, when the typical symphony consists of 2 fast movements with a slow movement in between. There's some silly belief that 'classical' music is slow, particularly in the pop industry.

    I get a trifle too offended with the term symphony being applied to everything, when they take great time to master. The message of the song is good, but my main reason for being so offended by the loose use of the term is the fact my teacher has already written two, and I know how many years of serious study was behind that. Try 65 years.
