Lyric Description: Cheryl Pyle's lyric takes a suggestion from Cochrane's title, Waltz No. 1, and paints compelling images in words of a dance under the night sky.

The instrumental lead sheet is also available for C treble & bass clefs, B-flat and E-flat instruments: see Waltz No. 1 in the same key of F minor.
