The Sound of Music

Published through our YouTube Channel almost five years ago.

The Sound of Music (Lyric Video and Piano Cover by JellSoL)

This piece, the theme song of a classic musical (The Sound of Music), is the first piece I committed to memory.  I still remember how it took me several months to learn it and be able to play the whole piece.  Reading notes was a challenge back then.  The movie is one of the first that I watched as a child and has been one of my favorites.  Several years later, living by myself in a small studio, I was reminded of this reflective song.  Loneliness certainly brings its twin (reminiscence) most of the time.  It was my cousin’s (my big brother) birthday and I thought of the old days when we were with our piano teacher.  I thought he was as lonely to be away from his family as I was away from mine.  That moment was this video.  For duplication plans, I included the lyrics below.

The hills are alive with the sound of music

With songs they have sung for a thousand years.

The hills fill my heart with the sound of music.

My heart wants to sing every song it hears.

My heart wants to beat like the wings of the birds

That rise from the lake to the trees.

My heart wants to sigh like a chime that flies

From a church on a breeze;

To laugh like a brook when it trips and falls

Over stones on its way,

To sing through the night

Like a lark who is learning to pray.

I go to the hills

When my heart is lonely.

I know I will hear

What I’ve heard before.

My heart will be blessed

With the sound of music

And I’ll sing once more.

Becoming a classic now, you might also like my rendition of Broken Vow.

ThruPages hopes that you will find this video useful as a piano cover. Please feel free to use this as your accompaniment when you wish to sing this song or use the melody of this hopeful narrative verse by Ed Sheeran as background to your presentations. Playing Perfect on a Casio Privia and applying some editing techniques, have made producing this video possible. The audio mimics live performance and should be clear and crisp enough for general playback.

Here is the lyrics (a short story) of the song:

I found a love for me. / Darling, just dive right in and follow my lead. / Well, I found a girl; beautiful and sweet. / Oh, I never knew you were the someone waiting for me.

‘Cause we were just kids when we fell in love; / not knowing what it was. / I will not give you up this time. / Darling, just kiss me slow. / Your heart is all I own / and in your eyes you’re holding mine.

Baby, I’m dancing in the dark / with you between my arms, / barefoot on the grass, / listening to our favourite song. / When you said you looked a mess, / I whispered underneath my breath, / but you heard it, / “Darling, you look perfect tonight.”

Well, I found a woman stronger than anyone I know. / She shares my dreams; I hope that someday, I’ll share her home. / I found a love to carry more than just my secrets, / to carry love, to carry children of our own.

We are still kids but we’re so in love, / fighting against all odds. / I know we’ll be alright this time. / Darling, just hold my hand. / Be my girl; I’ll be your man. / I see my future in your eyes.

Baby, I’m dancing in the dark / with you between my arms, / barefoot on the grass, / listening to our favourite song. / When I saw you in that dress / looking so beautiful, / I don’t deserve this. / Darling, you look perfect tonight.

Baby, I’m dancing in the dark / with you between my arms, / barefoot on the grass, / listening to our favourite song. / I have faith in what I see. / Now, I know I have met an angel in person / and she looks perfect. / I don’t deserve this. / You look perfect tonight.
