Analysis of Flat note

joanna scott 1967 (Birmingham)

The music died in me
the day you left with out a good bye
the tears never stop rolling
as silent days now pass me by
Suddenly like a stranger
dancing to my own tune
I never thought I'd lose you
my dancing man on the moon
Now there is only a silence
that leaves a icy chill
the music died in me
and hasn't returned still
