Each section ends with a two-measure rhythmic figure on F♯7, with a rising melody which balances out the generally downward direction of the rest of the melody and harmony. The A section changes descend mostly stepwise, visiting A major and G major; the bridge begins with a resolution to F major.
In our lead sheet, the rhythms of the tenth and 14th measures of the A section are based on what Justin plays on the recording. In his original manuscript, these measures have a half note followed by quarter-note triplets. However, he anticipates this figure every time, with the second note on the third quarter-note triplet of the measure.
