about

listopad / november - prosinec / december
Listopad's leaf-fall gives way to Prosinec's pallid sky. A city love song.

lyrics

High above the city
the sky is flat and grey
and I can see so far below.
A fine sheet of water
it falls so slowly down
caressing all the traffic lights.

Keyboards click and staplers crunch and printers hum
and my heart sings a melody
that tickles minutes right along
a waiting song 'til my lunch hour, and love
I miss you
all day long.

A field of black umbrellas
unfolds to greet the sky
and my feet take me through the crowd.
Past all the windows
of antique jewellery stores
nestled in the alleyways.

And around my finger winds your heart
a band of gold that whispers your name softly
as the lift ascends and takes me back up to my desk
to sleepwalk through the hours
I miss you
all day long.
