lyrics

Nobody "gets" jazz music.
The dance between form-fitting, intricate, bumble bee buzzing and
Breezy, butterfly bouncing with seemingly no intentionality can be a hurricane for ears untrained.

It speaks in tones the weight of globes to men lacking depth and strength
Your notes speak straight to soul,
No words needed
I'm hard-pressed to find more meaningful silence than when I'm beside you
Some days,
No other language will do.

And I still can't see how you bounce
between butterfly and bumblebee so effortlessly
Or dance every step of this hurricane you call "routine" so gracefully hiding
So many silence diamonds and wisdom nuggets among them
But I know no one else will do,
You are riveting.

I could spend a lifetime striving to understand even though I know I can't,
But that's the point of jazz:
You never get it; you just become one with it.

Is there any greater privilege?
