lyrics

Dancing through the clouds up on high.(Billy Strayhorn)

But the lights of spring changed : (
Strange, blood red fruit fell from Poplar trees.
Love departed unexpectedly and unfairly.
We never grew old and never said goodbye.

Now only fruit for the crows to pluck,
For the rain to gather, for the wind to suck,
For the sun to rot, for the trees to drop,
Here is a strange and bitter crop.

In the solitude of misty nights
When fog dissects the sea,
Their voices speak to me.
