Feverish 8 years later

This is a tune I wrote and first recorded almost 8 years ago. While going through some older material, I re-discovered it, and thought I’d take another crack at it.

I’ve Grown Accustomed to Her Face

This is such a wonderful song from the classic musical, My Fair Lady. The melody and the changes are just beautiful, and the lyrics truly touching.

I felt the need to do one last thing before the semester starts on Monday. There isn’t much to this short solo, chord-melody arrangement, but I do think it is pretty.

I’ve grown accustomed to her face
She almost makes the day begin
I’ve grown accustomed to the tune
She whistles night and noon

Her smiles, her frowns, her ups and downs
Are second nature to me now
Like breathing out and breathing in

I was serenely independent and content before we met
Surely I could always be that way again and yet
I’ve grown accustomed to her looks
Accustomed to her voice, accustomed to her face

She’s second nature to me now
Like breathing out and breathing in
I’m very grateful she’s a woman and so easy to forget

Rather like a habit one can always break and yet
I’ve grown accustomed to the trace of something in the air
Accustomed to her face
