I have no specific reason for posting this, other than to thank our beloved lyricist and wish you lots of  luck in the whatsit...? Only three points max to dole out?
The management (as usual) have ab-so-lu-te-ly noooooooo idea, etc etc.
Good luck @MichaelA !!!
Kind regards, Gus

@MichaelA
Yes, language is very important.
There's an ad in NL saying: Say it with flowers.
At first I thought I was in the clear, not having to deal with nuances that escape me because of not native speaking.

So I brought flowers for a Russian friend. There were 10 yellow roses in the bunch. The are called tea roses overhere.
She escaped the motherland, so she can laugh about the eccentricities of Russia.

While we talked, I was told that an even amount of flowers is for the dead or, in case someone is still alive, a deathwish. On top of that, yellow roses is for traitors.
So you see that if I try and avoid a language I have difficulty with, I still make mistakes.

As with beloved. It felt like a even amount of flowers. Which of course was not what I intended. But I like it a lot that you see the humor in it.
I specially love it that we get to know what the 'I' feels and does, but also what she thinks about it.
Great!
Love the lyrics. Wish you luck.
Kind regards, Gus

Your arrangement captures beautifully the spirit of the lyrics. It almost feels like the lyrics and melody were creatrd together :) I really enjoyed listening :) Great work! :)

Another bit of education I have picked up from you there  @LePlongeur on the even number and the yellow flowers. There must be a song in there somewhere. Maybe our next challenge: the 'Ten Yellow Flowers' challenge  ;D That, or else songs about innocent misunderstandings- I think we would both be good at that!  ;)

Hey there @Rachel_D , nice to see you on the forum again! Thanks for the song comment, much appreciated  :ok:
If you like novels with a musical theme, why not try 'Sixth Beatle - When Music Changed The World', easily found on Amazon and Google. It is amazing, although as the author I may be biased!

 Very  kind of you @Bill from November Sound to give this a bump! I was personally spoilt a little with this challenge, in hearing so many wonderful interpretations of my lyrics, yours included.

It will always take a lot to beat a November Sound song, so I guess the boy 'done good' on this occasion!

Thank you!  ::thumb::
