Ou Es Tu Mon Amour

I alone, to once again see the whole city wet and painted blue. The exact shade, matching the color of her favorite dress. The cool blues of that night with her eyes, which I made weep gems under the cafe neon.

The rain perfumes the concrete, one more time once. Walking the streets of sorrow I know I will again find you. Whistling our tune, mixing it with your blues. Fini.

"Ou Es Tu Mon Amour" was inspired by melody of same name by Django Reinhardt
