As with all of the big, great losses
not very much from here forward is going to be the same I know it won't I do want you to applaud on your way out though despondently, once again the harmonica begins to play.
When Fabienne plays the harmonica
In that gently abiding way My head turns ever so slight with memory And my eyes gleam anew with river sheen Walking down a path called contentment I smile, and for a moment stay
I'll never talk about what it's not, but I'll tell you what it is
It's the jaw harps sound, clear as spring water in open mouths It's an echo clear in a budding clearing And clear enjoyment in the crinkling eyes of a crying wish And as for my old mentor, his name was Kitten Lips Because he purrrrrred when he performed on it
