Another instrumental version of a song from my upcoming musical The Big Crunch. In this piece, a creature called Poisk (originally from Andromeda) contemplates her old home, what it was like for her to be in love with the weather, and her new duties. It fits in with previous dialogue and other numbers. This musical is not being uploaded in order.


I miss it so
Its rosy snow
It was lovely there
But I’m aware
It’s gone now

In the gems
That made up mountains
‘Round our Thames
It was boiling there
Beyond compare
Knowledge of the storms

We huddled in houses together
Protected from the violent weather
I dared escape the metal shapes
On a grand endeavour

I met the heat, he simmered down
And he lifted me all through my town
Normally we’d stay inside
Consumed by our misguided pride

I snuck out in a hurricane
Of heat in my darling’s domain
Through the skies, my love and I
Twisting and turning, we’d fly

That was the night I met my end
In the arms of my truest friend
I hope I meet a creature here
That loves Chinooks, without fear

For memories it needs to be
Hotter, with a boiling sea
A world reflecting more of me

I’m so alone
I miss my home
In pain
Without my hurricane

I’ll prove with this
I was worth the risk
I’ll show him he made the right choice

I’ll show them I won’t be ignored
They’ll be absolutely floored
I think I’ll risk being abhorred
In my new Andromeda

There’s so much love
And lack thereof
Now I’m aware
I’m shifting air
And song now

I will not remain alone
I’ll make this world like my home
This is something that I own
We’ll allow
Knowledge of the storms
