lyrics.

quiet hours

Old Blind Couple

 

There’s a couple walking free, canes tap out what they can’t see

City street cacophony, it’s the twilight of their lives

 

Forever love forever love…..repeat

 

Vintage clothing that they wear—the vest, the shawl, the yellowed hair

Only in their love aware, no need for speaking

 

Forever love, forever love, that’s the way I’m feeling right here today

Forever love, forever love, in the most natural way

 

She leaned to him and he to her, currents of the same pleasure

And in my tracks I am delivered into their world

 

Forever love, forever love, that’s the way I’m feeling right here today

Forever love, forever love, in the most natural way

 

Went to hear the saxophone man, listening just as I am

The music had me to understand a greater love, greater love

 

Forever love, forever love, that’s the way I’m feeling right here today

Forever love, forever love, in the most natural way

 

Watching leaves fall through the day so gracefully in their silent ways

Till by their grace I am swept away into infinity

 

Forever love, forever love, that’s the way I’m feeling right here today

Forever love, forever love, in the most natural way

 

Watched them walking down the Strasse, cross the crossing to the plaza

Till in the colored specks of light they disappeared out of sight

 

Forever love, forever love, that’s the way I’m feeling right here today

Forever love, forever love, in the most natural way
