Tears

There was recently an ice storm in my neighborhood that covered all the trees with a thick layer of ice. Under the weight of that ice, so many trees were severely damaged or destroyed. Then, when it started to melt, it looked like the trees were crying. It was this image of loss and sadness that inspired me to compose this song called Tears. I wrote this when I was 10 years old.

Niedawno, w mojej okolicy mroz zamrozil wszystkie drzewa i pokryl ich galezie bardzo gruba warstw lodu. Wiele drzew nie wytrzymalo takiego obciazenia i uleglo zniszczeniu. Kiedy lod zaczal topniec, wygladalo to, jakby drzewa plakaly. Ten obraz straty i rozpaczy zainspirowal mnie do skomponowania utworu, ktory nazwalem Tears (Lzy). Napisalem go kiedy mialem 10 lat.

Tears is a moderately paced quiet song in C minor. The form is A-A-A with a short coda. The A section is very sparsely harmonized and the B part has running 8th notes below a melody that rises before sinking back down. The coda features a beautiful descending line in 3rds.

If you’re a composer, do you ever write songs about what you see when looking out the window? If so, please share your experience in the comments section below.

Tears jest spokojnym utworem w srednim tempie w c-moll. Forma to A-A-A z krotkim zakonczeniem. Czesc A wlasciwie nie wspolbrzmiewa , a czesc B ma powtarzajace sie osemki, ponizej linii melodycznej, ktora wzrasta, zanim ponownie opadnie. Zakonczenie zawiera piekna opadajaca linie melodyczna.
