MOONSHINE
You're right, I can't quit choir. Even after a hellacious half-week that has no apparent end in sight, and having to literally FORCE myself out the door and into the car, once I got there, it was worth it. New song: The Moon Waltz. *swoon* It's so gorgeously dreamy it makes me tear up when we're singing it.

Tag min hand i din hand, tag mig med till sagans land,
där skall jag gå med dig i älvadans trånande i månens glans
I ditt sovande slott låt mig dricka himmels blått tills dess jag vet
din ljuva hemlighet lär mig månens alfabet
När jag står här framför dig är jag en trollkarl med sitt spö
du förhäxar och för mig till lycksalighetens ö
Som en nattfjäril yr på sitt månskensäventyr
du kommer till mig i ett rosenrus följ mig upp från jordens grus


Take my hand in your hand, take me along to storyland,
there I'll go with you in an elf-dance yearning in the brilliance of the moon
In your sleeping castle let me drink the blue of heaven until this I know,
your delightful secret teaches me the moon's alphabet
When I stand here before you I am a magician with my wand,
you bewitch me and transport me to the island of happiness
Like a moth dizzy on its moonshine adventure
you come to me in an intoxication of roses,
follow along with me up from the sand of the earth

What magical lyrics! I would love to hear the melody.

Beautiful lyrics, you don't even need to hear the music to appreciate them. I am glad you aren't going to quit the choir. With every activity its getting your bum up there when you're tired that's hard, but after you leave you are always glad you went. Its the same story every time. I know it all too well. I even have it on some days with going to work.

I'm glad you're not quitting choir.
Thanks for the "gorgeously dreamy" song lyrics. Wish I could make it to the concert.

I wish you could, too :)

Yay for excellent decisions, beautiful songs and really great writing out there!

hooray for not quitting choir! Even though I do agree that you could simplify a little tiny bit, o woman thou art! I know that sometimes, when I'm crazy busy and overwhelmed, I will make threats to quit things. or at least cut back. The cutting back thing works. People have been understanding, especially with the wedding coming up.

so who can tell me where to find cool icons - I need to know!

and sometimes I think that the lyrics are the best things about songs.

Absolutely lovely song, filled with magical images and wonderful words (like älvadans -- why doesn't English have a word like that?).

And the melody is SO beautiful. Except the alto part isn't so fun...it's a lot of da da da's.
