The song “Well Loved” was inspired by The Pillow Book by Sei Shōnagon. Sei was a Japanese author, poet and a court lady who served the Empress Teishi (Sadako) around the year 1000 during the middle Heian period. The Pillow Book was introduced to me by my dear friend and musical collaborator Aya Nishina, who the song is dedicated to. I was very taken with Sei’s Pillow Book and her delightful observations of the everyday world around her.

“Well Loved” Lyric Credits:
Well Loved (lyrics & music by Becca Stevens, inspired by The Pillow Book by Sei Shōnagon b. 966-1017, translated by Meredith McKinney)

They say the mourning dove
Can be comforted
By showing her a mirror
When she’s longing for her mate.
Oh it pains me to picture them alone
When they’re separated, and cannot hear the call!

To be loved
Is as rare as gold,
But to be well-loved–
There’s nothing can compare.

The heron looks unlovable
Yet will not sleep alone,
Taking turns on winter nights
To keep each other warm.
Oh it pains me to picture them alone
On the coldest night, without each other.

To be loved
Is as rare as gold,
But to be well-loved–
There’s nothing can compare.

Here’s a mirror for your love
Here’s a mirror…
