The form is 32-measure ABCD; the B section is a variation of the A section. The C section (bridge) modulates to D minor and then to E major. Several recurring melodic motives are subtly reharmonized; a notable example is in the third through fifth measures of the A and B sections.
Kirk's rich and complex harmonies put his beautiful melody in a perfect setting. This instrumental version makes a great ballad feature. The Minus You track, without melody, lets you create your own interpretation.
born on February 28, 1948
