Love Story the Musical - Nocturnes Lyrics

JENNY:
We're born from the silence
We're born from the shade
From the prayers of our parents
And the journeys they've made

We're born to have children
They're all that we leave
Then they find their own footsteps
For the stories they weave

I will play my kids nocturnes
If they think they're alone
I will soothe them with Schumann
And some Nina Simone

I will play them the Erlking
As they ride a cockhorse
They'll know Bach, they'll know Berlioz
And The Beatles, of course
And The Beatles of course

They'll learn from their father
The thrill of the ice
But who knows where they’re headed?
It’s the roll of the dice

For all we can give them
Is passion, and choice
And keep singing their praises
Till they find their own voice

I will play them the "Moonlight"
If they’re sleepy or not
And I know they’ll love Joplin
Both Janis and Scott

And when they have children
On long afternoons
They will dance in the puddles
And teach them these tunes

I will play my kids nocturnes
If they think they alone
I will soothe them with Schumann
And some Nina Simone

I will play them the Erlking
As they ride a cockhorse
They'll know Bach, they'll know Berlioz
And The Beatles, of course

I will play them Debussy, John Coltrane and Ravel
We will coon with Sinatra
And with Callas as well
And with Callas as well

I will play my kids nocturnes…

[Thanks to Cecilia for lyrics]
