I have a Collection of cherished things
Pictures and Memories - Seasons gone by
What Joy they bring

Shall I hide them forever buried in me
for no one else to see?
My Collection, uniquely me

Andy Stone - guitar
Music by Nancy Kelly


My friend Andy from England is working on an instrumental version of the song. I'll keep updating as he updates!

The inspiration for Palaces came when I read a phrase in Psalm 45 verse 8: "from palaces adorned with ivory the music of the strings makes you glad".  The Psalm is a wedding song written for a king.  It begins with "My heart is stirred by a noble theme as I recite my verses for the king:  my tongue is the pen of a skillful writer."  Even though this is written for an earthly king, it takes me to heavenly places and I like to think about the music in heaven and what it would be like to be in the palace of God.  That's what was ruminating around in my musical mind at the time when this music was born.

I also wrote lyrics to this song but opted to wait to include them when I record a full OCEAN themed collection. It was recorded on my Simple Things album with the original song structure that I played on my Korg and then Ian put a another layer over it to give it that ethereal drifty feel.
