John Coltrane Lyrics

And now the purple dusk of twilight time
Steals across the meadows of my heart
High up in the sky the little stars climb
Always reminding me that we're apart
You wander down the lane and far away
Leaving me a song that will not die
Love is now the stardust of yesterday
The music of the years gone by.

Sometimes I wonder, how I spend
The lonely nights
Dreaming of a song
The melody
Haunts my reverie
And I am once again with you
When our love was new
And each kiss an inspiration
But that was long ago
And now my consolation is in the stardust of a song

Besides the garden wall, when stars are bright
You are in my arms
The nightingale
Tells his fairytale
Of paradise, where roses grew
Though I dream in vain
In my heart it will remain
My stardust melody
The memory of love's refrain.

I've heard many times how Coltrane was searching for God and trying to express what God is with his frenetic late career experimentation, but I think he gets closer with "Stardust" than anything else; it's such a beautiful yet mournful playing. I can't help but think of loved ones lost and living friends and family fated to go. "Time After Time" has the feeling of carrying around the burdens of life, but noticing the beauty and temporality of everything around us. "Love Thy Neighbor" seems to reflect being yourself without getting in anyone else's way. "Then I'll Be Tired of You" gives me the impression of accepting the world as it is and embracing the seemingly futile course of making life as beautiful as we can, knowing full well how it ends.

Or maybe it's all just notes.

Wow, I have the same feeling when listening "Stardust" even before reading your comment.

Late Coltrane is like animal porn, it's not for everyone.

You can’t even imagine a composition like this without having lived life deeply. It’s definitely more than just notes.
