From "Brazilliance"


Brazilliance - Derrik Jordan
Words and music by Derrik Jordan


A wistful lyric about times gone by and how one can never return except in fantasy. One of my favorite melodies from this CD. There is also an instrumental version on the CD with Eugene Uman on piano and Erik Lawrence on soprano sax.




How I wish I could remember

All those times we spent together

But so many things I can't recall

The great and small are lost inside of me


Years go by in such a hurry

Looking back, they seem so blurry

Then a moment comes, a song, a smell

And feelings gel into a memory


Of days when we were young and free

So sure of immortality

Never suspecting that time would come

When we'd feel some nostalgia


So old friend, thank you for calling

Guess my heart needs overhauling

Sharing stories from the past

When all our dreams were vast It's funny, but it means a lot to me
