If you silence your mind,
And listen to the jazz music
Drifting through the golden afternoon…
If you quiet your beating heart,
Would you see at last,
What I’ve seen all along?
Don’t be afraid anymore –
Caught in a landslide of history and humanity,
Something whispers that it’s over,
But the rustling leaves tell another tale;
The colours speed past the window,
You want to take them home,
But you must leave them far behind.
And despite all that, I want you to know,
That deep inside I’ll always love you.
