Words and Instrument/Voice Assignments For Forgiven

                                             Forgiven

The woman: Violin                                  

The man: Viola

Female voice: Oboe

Male voice: Tuba

Piano intro.  

Scene 1.

A man and a woman are arguing. The woman slaps the mans face and begins to cry. The man walks off looking sad. 

A woman fell in love 

with a man who said his love was true      [female voice with chorus]

and he would cherish her forever              

But she was only being kept

for he cared not where he slept

He broke her heart

and now she sings this song

Where, where went all the love              [the woman repeated twice]

the love that broke my heart

and left me crying

When, when will I find love

love to fill my heart

and I'm smiling

Yes, I know that I should be strong

Please, please love come again 

I feel so all alone

How could I not see what I have done            [the man with woman on repeat] 

is what I never wanted                 

Will our love be washed away 

with the tears that flow from your heart

Without you there will be no joy

No one to touch and whisper to in the night

Please , please love come again 

I feel so all alone

 

Scene 2.

The man attempts to caress the woman but is rejected. The man falls to his knees and begins to weep. The woman then lifts him up into her bosom and they caress each other smiling. 

And here they are                              [female voice and chorus]

so close,  yet so far apart

She makes the choice to forgive

She takes him back into her heart     [male voice chimes in]

 

Now, now I'm in your arms                [man and woman with chorus]

your warmth caresses my soul

and makes me happy

Joy, joy in what we have  

until our journey ends

And forever  

We will live our lives

with each other in our hearts  

Love, love has come again 

we'll never be alone

Love, love has come again

It sings a lovely song

Hi Phil,

As you may have noticed, I signed in and invited all the NS-members whose mail addresses I had. Most of them have signed in as well. (Gerd Prengel, Ted Vanya, Raymond Robijns...). Kjell Prytz was already a member and actually he invited me in.

I still have to find my way in all the possible topics and forum possibilities, but I have already posted my latest work (the Balletto).

As an ironic coincidence, the NS-forum has reopened the very moment I became e member here...

Hope to hear from you soon,

Jos

Thanks Phill.

I'm glad I found at least 2 members of our beloved NS-forum (you and Kjell). I have some email addresses of other members in my contacts. I'll inform them as well about this Composers' forum. That way , we can meet again and share our artistic efforts.

All the best,

Jos
