The lone accordion sits on the street corner
Playing tunes with all its heart
It stays in the background confident yet unnoticed.
It's a bright star,
But its a small star.
In the canon of the sea of faces
The sea it flows and flows
All it's waves, they bring the sounds of chattering.
Swallow the accordion
Never let it breath a word, a note , a pause in it.
But the accordion keeps playing
It keeps the heart going.
Pumping the notes through it's veins.
Oh the little accordion
You shine ever so bright!
Even if for the moment
Even if the sea swallows you
If it devours your soul!
Know that I see you
You are my guiding light
The light in my sea of faces..
