Reverie
Claude Debussy Lyrics


Our love is a dream, but in my reverie
I can see that this love was meant for me
Only a poor fool never schooled in the whirlpool
Of romance could be so cruel as you are to me
My dreams are as worthless as tin to me
Without you life will never begin to be
So love me as I love you in my reverie
Make my dream a reality
Let's dispense with formality
Come to me in my reverie

Our love is a dream, but in my reverie
I can see that this love was meant for me
Only a poor fool never schooled in the whirlpool
Of romance could be so cruel as you are to me
My dreams are as worthless as tin to me
Without you life will never begin to be
So love me as I love you in my reverie
Make my dream a reality
Let's dispense with formality
Come to me in my reverie

Best dynamics of tempo and volume of any piano rendition of this masterpiece that I've heard. Such melodies put Debussy in very exclusive company, and he produced dozens. This one was made into a popular song in 1938. (Larry Clinton Band, sung by Bea Wain.) It's worth a listen. Here are the lyrics:
"Our love is a dream, but in my reverie
I can see that this love was meant for me
Only a poor fool, never schooled in the whirlpool
Of romance could be so cruel as you are to me
My dreams are as worthless as tin to me
Without you life will never begin to be
So love me as I love you in my reverie
Make my dream a reality
Let's dispense with formality
Come to me in my reverie"

Debussy's music is simply magical. It's kind of dreamy, ethereal, and somehow it makes you feel nostalgic for something that never happened before in your life. Something that you want to seek for the most, i.e your dream landscape.

@Gervaze Joseph I have known the truth of your profound words since the first time in my childhood (I'm now 69) I heard Claire de Lune. Even so, I could never have expressed it. Debussy's music makes my heart soar. Many thanks for your comments.

Beethoven, Mozart and Chopin. They never died. They simply became music...
