While These Strings Sweetly Sing

Alone in the dim there's a candle there gleaming
While these strings sweetly sing.
I see your face in a vision that's fleeting
As soft chords gently cry.

You couldn't know how much I love you,
You don't even know my name.
I've watched you stride laughing and lovely,
Confident in your fame.

I wish I could share this song that I wrote you
While these strings sweetly sing.
Then touch your hand as I bid you adieu
As soft chords gently cry.

You couldn't know how much I love you,
You don't even know my name.
I've watched you stride laughing and lovely,
Confident in your fame.

So here I shall play, with my love's inspiration
While these strings sweetly sing.
And be content with my dream's consolation
As soft chords gently cry.

Written by Craig Cornish
One of my favorite melodies ever written by anyone.
These are lyrics written to George Harrison's melody
While My Guitar Gently Weeps

    Wonderful first place win, Craig! I love that song. If you ever get a chance, watch this performance: It's an amazing performance with Prince, Tom Petty, and George Harrison's son from the 2004 Hall of Fame induction. Congrats and thank you for the placement in your Chopped III contest! Hugs, Rhonda

    Congratulations, Craig, on your top position. Lovely tribute and emotions for George whom I love as well. In fact, I've just getting acquainted with the Traveling Wilburys.

    I'm pleased to share #1 position with you. This piece was very good. Some of my favorite Beatles songs were written by Harrison, in particular Something. In a similar vein, the piece I did called Something You Left Behind was inspired by the love theme to the film The Sandpipers, song The shadow Of Your Smile.

    Congratulations Craig on your first place win. One of my favorite songs by one of my favorite artists. George Harrison is also one of the people I admire. You did a great job with this fine piece.
