Trembling Blue Stars

A Spell Of Songs

Disco: Correspondence EP [2011]
Autor: Robert James Wratten

Crying along to a story

A language she didn't understand

Everyone threw him away

She took his hand


Songs of

Love and blood

And prison

Always prison


An accordian

He cradled

Handbells on a table


Music's gift

A path out of loneliness

And a measure of comfort


Estranged from

His mothertown

Everything changed when the wall came down


A small apartment of possessions

Passageways for navigation

Coffee grinders, sowing machines

Radios and biscuit tins


Flowers for his birthday

Tears for his songs

Everyone threw him away

Everyone was wrong
