Caro Nome

It’s eight hours later and I still remember this dream. I wasn’t even going to write it down at first because it was so short.

So, I’m standing in an alley with high gray walls. The alley leads to a main street but there’s no traffic. And I’m standing in the alley singing Caro Nome. Only, it’s in the wrong key. For some reason, it’s in c major. Also it’s not a big soprano solo. It’s some kind of duet. But the soprano that I’m singing it with is invisible.

So the duet comes to an end with a series of chords. But there’s some extra music I have to sing. It’s basically the first two words over and over, on the note G, as the orchestra switches back-and-forth between tonic and dominant. Just over and over and over until morning.
