More Music...Moonlight

I like the instrumentation in this song, I just wish it
could be performed by someone who could actually stay
on key when they sing!

This one is just me.

I include the standard disclaimer:

Not professionally recorded, and it might sound better if
you listened with headphones.

The link and the lyrics appear below:

Moonlight

1. The moon was full
The sky was soft and lovely
The air was pure
My soul at ease

I settled down
And felt the wind caress me
I closed my eyes
The night was bright

C. Hard to have an evil thought
When quiet night is what I've got
Taking what is here to take
The insects buzzed as I drank

The silent kiss of nature's light
The silver beams that pierce the night
The perfect calm that feels so right
The silent breeze that cools the night

2. A falling star
The lure of insects singing
A midnight storm
A distant rain

I track the moon
The clouds are shadow dancing
Warm summer night
A cooling breeze

C.

C.

Peace be with you.

  3. Ms A...the sounds were created with a synthesizer, and yes, they were supposed to sound like crickets.

  5. That's exactly what it sounded like! I was a little embarrassed to mention it in case it was a combination of my hearing and listening on the laptop.
