This is a sad, slow song in B minor. I actually wrote this song reverse. By that I mean, the very first idea I came up with was measure 43-47. I kept coming up with new material, but everything felt out of order. So, I flipped the whole thing around, moving the beginning to the end. It was kind of a crazy composing process, but I think the song works. Lots of good stuff happening in measure 22-29 so bring this section out. A bunch of ledger lines in the right hand here, but keep in mind that it’s just octaves.
