Song of City Blue

We ate and smoked the evening air
we sang the songs we knew so well
with flames of heart’s desire

the songs we thought
would never end …
when life had just begun.

Round and ‘round the room of souls
we danced with youthful abandon …

Little did we know
we didn’t know …

even less,
than what we knew …

When time has all
but reached the end,
we’ll gather on our city streets
to sing those songs again

the ones we know so well …

of flaming hearts
and love’s desire
from all our midnights past

we’ll dance the night away
just like we did
when Life was new

and time had just
begun …
