Inside a Silent Tear

Saturday’s Spin comes from the great jazz singer Carmen McCrae. This song is remarkable. Guitarist Bucky Pizzarelli is on this with her. His son is guitarist John Pizzarelli who I met up at the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island when my husband at the time, David L. Hay, was gigging with John. It was a Rosemary Clooney concert. Dave was the piano player for the Grand Hotel. We all had little kids. Ah, the memories.

 

Inside a Silent Tear
Inside a silent tear, I have a silent dream
That sometimes sails across the patterns of my mind.
The silence follows me and dreams just disappear
and then I find myself inside a silent tear
Sometimes I laugh too much
to lose the loneliness.
I’m not the laughing kind.
I can’t say anything I really want to say.
I guess I try so hard I stumble on the way.
I’m always finding love when it’s not meant to be.
What is reality and can it be defined?
When you’re a fool like me it’s never really clear
so you have silent dreams inside a silent tear.
I’m always finding love when it’s not meant to be.
What is reality and can it be defined?
When you’re a fool like me it’s never really clear
so you have silent dreams inside a silent tear.
