Nocturne was released as an instrumental piece. However, there were lyrics
Written for it. These are those lyrics.

When it rains
I watch the window
Golden dreams
Wash down the willow
Where are my Mardi Gras memories?
Under silver seas

Long cold nights
Change my reflection
Unsung songs
Show my direction
Where are my make believe victories?
Under silver seas

Ships pass over my head
Purple and blue, yellow and red
White sails catching the breeze
Sailing on silver seas

Once I lived
You might remember
Born in May
Died in September
Where are my carousel fantasies?
Under silver seas
