In A Sentimental Mood
Duke Ellington Lyrics


In a Sentimental Mood I can see
The stars come through my room
While your loving attitude is
Like a flame that lights the gloom
On the wings of ev'ry kiss
Drift a melody so strange and sweet
In this sentimental bliss you make
My Paradise complete
Rose pearls seem to fall
It's all like a dream to call you mine
My heart's lighter thing since you
Made me this night a thing divine
In A Sentimental Mood
I'm within a world so heavenly
For I never dreamt that you'd be
Loving sentimental me
In A Sentimental Mood I can see
The stars come through my room
While your loving attitude is
Like a flame that lights the gloom
On the wings of ev'ry kiss
Drift a melody so strange and sweet
In this sentimental bliss you make
My Paradise complete
Rose pearls seem to fall
It's all like a dream to call you mine
My heart's lighter thing since you
Made me this night a thing divine
In A Sentimental Mood
I'm within a world so heavenly
For I never dreamt that you'd be
Loving sentimental me

You know, it's funny. I haven't listened to this in years - partly because it brings me back to a time in my life where I found myself without my mother, both of my grandmothers, two of my aunts - cancer's a bitch, man. And even looking at that sentence - separated with a couple of commas - I'm baffled by how short and meaningless it looks.
But I went ahead and put this on after a very late night full of discussion - right as the sun started to rise. I used to cry to this song - gut wrenching, belly and bowl-moving sobs - the kind where you hope and pray that you close your eyes and there's nothing left to open them to. No diarrhea hahaha - just pain. Teeth gnashing pain.
Two years later, and I'm drinking coffee watching the sunrise, listening to the gentle minor chords of Duke's piano caress the seeking, searching notes of Coltrane's sax. And it is bright.

Somehow it's going to be just fine.

@Bizarro I agree ….

Bizarro

the YouTube comment section is subject to some of the worst takes in the history of EVER, and here I am finding a combination of words that give me an understanding of what these artists can mean to people, even in sudden ways they blend into our lives.

Can't describe how good it feels to just sit back at 2 AM and closing your eyes while this song plays in the background

I can back this up, did this with my girlfriend before - sipping wine, just cuddling and not caring about a single thing in the world!
