Serenity


Lyrics

"Serenity"
Music & Lyrics by Scott Cooley.



When you hear the sound of the rain when you’re falling asleep

When on your face you can feel a warm summer breeze

When you’ve got a double dip of vanilla ice cream


Serenity, when you think of the color blue

Serenity, getting lost in a daydream or two

Serenity, a candle burns as the fragrance fills the room

Serenity, a single star in the sky with the moon


When you’re walking hand in hand with someone you love

When you see a puppy with big brown eyes from above

When a cloud in the spring is flying north with a dove


Serenity, a cup of tea on a cold winter’s night

Serenity, the smell of clothes hung out to dry

Serenity, a quiet bath in the candlelight

Serenity, the waves on the beach at twighlight


Repeat First Chorus

Brief Description

This is a song I wrote based on notes I took about things that represent serenity to my wife Lenore.  I just asked her what comes to your mind when you think of things that are serene and as she rattled off some things, I wrote them down.  Then I took the notes as starter content for a song and eventually added more of my own and formed it into this song.  She suggested I use a serene voice for the vocal accordingly, so I tried to do that quiet whispery thing.  It's one of those pleasant mood songs for sure, as opposed to a captivating story song.  It paints pictures - visual images pop into your mind when you listen to the lyrics.  It's a relaxing song.
