Song Description

I especially like the chord changes, which, If you listen closely you can hear a descending chromatic line in the bass. I wrote two melodies to the same chord changes. In this arrangement for orchestra and harmonica you can hear the main melody superimposed over the second melody when it enters in the background, which features several quarter note triplets. The lyrics are about a lonely man or woman on an ocean trip gazing over the reflections of his or her lover's face in the sparkling diamond crystals from the moon shining on the water.

Story Behind the Song

Program Notes Reflections I wrote Reflections in 1992 and performed it several times as a vocal solo with Gene Flamand's band at dances. I took Spanish classes at Coeur d'Alene High School where I graduated in 1959. I majored in music education and minored in Spanish in college. I spent some time in Mexico and Chile so Latin music is a big influence in my compositions. I wanted to write a Latin jazz-fusion piece.

Lyrics

This is an instrumental version featuring internationally known harmonica player Tom Stryker, but here are the lyrics for the vocal version.


REFLECTIONS OF LOVE

I look at the moon and see reflections of your love,
For me, from up above,
Shining down into my lonely room,
As if you were there. Your golden warmth lights up my soul.

I look at the sea, and see a thousand sparkling lights,
Like diamonds, shining in the night,
Like your love for me--
And like the sea--on and on it will go.

Reflections of your love for me.
Reflections bridge the space and time between.
The echoes of your voice sound in my ears,
Erase all the noise and all the fears.

Nuestro amor mueve en el aire,
Como alas que se vuelen,
Hasta los fines de tiempo,
Hacía amor, el espejo de tus ojos,
La luz de tus ojos refleja que te quiero,
Reflejos que te quiero.

(English version of 3rd verse)

Our love moves through the air,
Like wings that fly,
Towards the end of time,
Towards love, the mirror of your eyes--
The glow in your eyes--reflect that I love you.
