Blue notes

About that time or slightly before or it could have been later when she came through the door and the radio was playing some tune from Berlin, an orchestra special, what a way to begin.

I could hear her words but her eyes said much more although that could have been later when she came through the door.

So I sat sipping champagne which was really white wine
and that time was sometime or slightly before,

You think they can’t hurt you but I know they can
so I dream that it’s memories that make me this man
and about or before
in front of
or behind
I find the door
opens.
