lyrics

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 where—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
