SATB with piano – CP 2018 – duration 4:00
At heart, human beings are romantic creatures who capture warm light-filled memories and keep them safe until dark days come. It is those memories that warm our hearts when the paradise and wonder of youth sometimes feel lost in an ever more complex and confusing existence. This song is about those memories and the ever-present desire for a simpler life that waits quietly in all of us.
