Musical memories: Bookends theme

Bookends Theme - Simon and Garfunkel 🎢

The first time I heard this tiny song was during the opening scene of the film Girl, Interrupted (1999). It touched me deeply. Talking about melancholy moods. How much feeling can be expressed in just one minute and a half. Loads.


Lyrics:

A time it was, and what a time it was, it was
A time of innocence
A time of confidences



Long ago it must be
I have a photograph
Preserve your memories
They're all that's left you

nighttime sounds: an owl in a tree,
wind rustling the remaining leaves
gnarly branches,
black against the moon

the sweetest dreams,
taking residence in my heart

you & I
an impossible possibility
the sheets will not reveal my secrets


In silence

never would there evermore
a song upon a breeze
for music has forsaken us
went lost among the trees

now darkness has surrounded us
and vanquished all the light
in silence now we just await
the visitor in the night
