about

The solar theme continues with the album’s atmospheric ballad, “Aurora.” Written by Drew Szabo and sung by Catherine Capellaro, it sustains the worldly trend of the album, this time taking the listener to “northern Labrador.” A phrase from Debussy’s “Arabesque,” which was used in Jack Horkheimer’s astronomy show (that version played by Japanese composer Tomita in 1976) sets the spacey mood, with a feel similar to The Bee Gees’ “How Deep Is Your Love” and the Flaming Lips’ “Ego Tripping at the Gates of Hell.” Lush harmonies, moogy synths and a French horn solo keep the listener slow dancing to the wistful song about ionized solar winds and past lovers.

lyrics

8. A U R O R A
When I gaze up at the winter sky, hundreds of memories flow on by sending me off to a place I no longer go. When I lift my eyes to the stars above Time disappears and you’re near, my love—thinking back to a magical night long ago. Wandering in northerly Labrador—miles of moonlit lands to explore— guided north by the Yearning that we shared. Shimmering curtains that fall from Space lighting the Beauty I see your face— shrouding in mystery all that we Behold
Shielding us from the Sun, protecting every-one,
Shimmering softly — Aurora — Dancing in the Night,
Moving with the light, scintillating Sea, flowing over Me…
Wandering in Northerly Labrador—miles of moonlit lands to explore Looking inside for the feeling I had long ago
Drifting down from Infinity, filling our Hearts with Serenity
Wondering if this is the last time we’ll Dream this Place
Have you ever seen Aurora?
