Musical Mozart!: I am Music

(Act I Scene 2)


Wolfgang:


I’m not a poet, I cannot speak poetically

I simply follow the way my heart falls


I’m not a painter either

I cannot paint light and shade, the beauties of the world

I merely draw hopes in my dreams

I’m not an actor

I don’t know how to act

I want to live without pretension

I want you to see me just as I am


I am major, I am minor

I am chord, I melody

My words, my phrases

My feelings, my rhythm Are all in my music


I am beats, I am rests, I am harmony

I’m forte, I’m piano, dance and fantasy

I am, I am music

I can’t imagine a world without music


I’m not a philosopher

I don’t know anything

Among the crowd and the din

That’s where I always am

I don’t know about manners

I’d rather be called rude than be bored

I don’t want an ordinary life

I’ll go searching for freedom and glory

Not knowing where it will lead me

Love me just the way I am


I am major, I am minor

I am chord, I melody

My words, my phrases

My feelings, my rhythm Are all in my music

I am beats, I am rests, I am harmony

I’m forte, I’m piano, dance and fantasy

I am, I am music

Love me just the way I am
