First Music Sample

Piano

 

Back on the train down town

 

Watching her walk down the isle.

 

As she…

 

Glanced my way then sat down.

 

With such style.

 

 

Second Music Sample

Strings

 

But I can’t say:  “Howdy do?”

 

‘til she smiles.

 

Third Music Sample

Baritone

 

Yet on the train I feel such joy and hope in my heart…

 

Oh what a start.

 

Fourth Music Sample

Oboe 

 

My life is clean floors and flags unfurled.

 

Her life is diamonds, and black pearls.

 

Gems cerise,

 

A fine swiss time piece.

 

Yeah, we’re from different worlds.

 

Fifth Music Sample 

Oboe 

 

No more train rides each day

 

Got a new job near my home, yeah.

 

Still think of what

 

May have been, with a poem.
