SWAN LAKE (Rome) There is a sound A sound that happens when the orchestra is tuning their instruments The audience is dimming down to a thousand hints of speech Whispers of waiting fade with the light My watch is ticking And the curtain scuffs way for the coming of night This is the sound that haunts my life And for reasons unknown, it helps me to see the things that I love I see blue silk in the shade that drapes from above I see my wife on her side Dressed like a dove I see a painting in whole and I see the tell of its source I see these carved words As it all comes forth I have traveled the world in search of that sound That sound, that sound It shows me what’s coming and what’s to be known It gives me my past to bring back home It acts as the ghost when I’m all alone And it gave me this painting From Swan Lake In Rome
