This week I listened to nothing but Elton John and tried to write a similar piano-based ballad. I was challenged by the subreddit, Song-A-Week, to write a song about BREAKING BOUNDRIES. I've never tried to write a song using only piano. This is a first for me. Here is a YouTube video of the performance: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rFwj75Wa3Vo

Lyrics

Tall, red and fair, a model on the screen
Father wasn't there, you got used to that routine

Your spirit was so free, like you were singing in the street
And the way you moved your feet, was so very sweet

I am from the land of ice, you were sent from paradise
I had only beans and rice, you brought me a garden of spice

Your spirit was so free, like you were singing in the street
And the way you moved your feet, was so very sweet

Tangerine, bathing in the sun or rain
Tangerine, in my heart you will remain
How I'd love to see you dance again

I was always on the run, you found God bathing in the sun
You showed me how to love, and share it with everyone

Your spirit was so free, like you were singing in the street
And the way you moved your feet, was so very sweet

Tangerine, bathing in the sun or rain
Tangerine, in my heart you will remain
How I'd love to see you dance again

Tangerine, bathing in the sun or rain
Tangerine, in my heart you will remain
How I'd love to see you dance again
