Sometimes beauty is nostalgic or maybe sometimes nostalgia is beautiful, this song is a perfect example of such. The delicate softness of a piano motif that fits a very personal mood, a mood that permeates the movie for which this music was created in a very deep way.
Loneliness, nostalgia and a specific sound that reminds you of an Erik Satie piano piece, a composer known for his simplicity-seeking beauty and the rejection of excessive complexity and intellect that many other of his contemporaries and classical music in general sometimes tend to abuse.
The heart is very simple, maybe an opposite to the mind. Every time you try to think, wonder and explain your life you can realize your heart has answered all those questions before you even had to ask. This song just reminds me to that connection, a connection that sometimes is easier done at night, when the moon can heighten your emotions and you can stop thinking on the external and begin focusing on your inner self, the real self.
