City lights tell nothing Are mute behind the mask And should they speak, I’d care not For the stars are out tonight
They sparkle and whisper Spinning tales of the past Of the better times already lived Times of the childhood, fragrant summer breeze Flirting through fine boyhood hair
They wrap the arm of the sky around me And show me life From a windswept rise Above a lazy frozen river
I am alone, I cry inside The river within me youthful, strong
I think of you In the orange lights of us, The white lights of the secret sky
This lone moment of mine I cannot share I’d hold you close Like a dying love But it cannot be so.
