Hey hey,
here's a winterly ballad, which starts quite sad and unfulfilled, but will 
have a happy end.
OGG version:
It's all centred around the piano. I'd like to make another special mention of 
Csound for the ticking clock.

Instruments used: LinuxSamler for piano, bass, one guitar, xylophone and the 
VPO strings, which are great for performance, DrumGizmo with the Aasimonstr2 
kit, which can show so many sonic facettes, and Yoshimi for a few subtle 
details. The Behringer Neutron adds a little soft sub bass and the "octave 
tremolo" sound.

Comments as ever are welcome. I hope you enjoy it. The lyrics are below.

Best wishes,

I'd rather be your voice, when you wake up in the night.
I'd sooth you with a smile and strive to be your light.
I'd burn alive and fall apart elsewhere.
You'd never see me break and tear my heart.

I'd rather hear you speak of things without import
Than live a life devoid of you
And bear the pain of that finality
And walk that road of misery.
I'd rather brave the bleak, sad lands of autumn hue.

Your kind and tender heart, your quick and ready smile.
Were just two traits of you I fell
In love with, yet uncertain all the while
I did not dare to tell
That I love you.
Thus, unware you shared
The treasures of your heart.
Talk with me of books and roses,
Laugh with me 'bout silly jokes.
Don't be scared when I confess that I've fallen for you.

And now you are my voice, in the middle of the night.
All Lies In Shades Of Nacreous blue.
We made a world of wonders unforeseen,
A sea which sparkles with a magic sheen.
Now you gave me the choice, I wander at your site.
