Little moments, like flashbacks from a past that warms- a soundtrack of moods, but also of words. Casual clothes, even shabby, even unappealing. A little broom falls from the hands, an arm wraps around a waist, a neck is found.

Autumn in new york
Why does it seem so inviting
Autumn in new york
It spells the thrill of first-nighting

A dance of blue, out of the blue. Deep breathing, gentle swaying, the warmth of proximity, the heat of togetherness.

Dreamers with empty hands
They sigh for exotic lands

A little trip, some eyes-close-looking. See, those four walls are here again and that little two-in-one with a pop-up cd player. There, there is the window, with darkness and a tubelight. Or the moon. A shot of Barcelona tinted whisky, a hasty latch.

Off with my overcoat, off with my glove
I need no overcoat, I'm burning with love!
My heart's on fire, the flame grows higher

Old times revisited in settings anew. Notes fall, like leaves setting a mood. There are stumbles, like before, yet not. There is urgency so unlike the past, there is a calm so unlike the present. Where do lovers go, if not into memory; into a continuity of connection, a permanency of love.

Stars fading but I linger on dear
Still craving your kiss
I'm longin' to linger till dawn dear
Just saying this, yes

This thing that you just wrote is making me think of singers like Frank Sinatra for some reason....

I suppose you know this, but that's cause those lines are from the 'Ella & Louis Again' album (except the last one of course). check the ttwo links (dots) at the bottom of the post...

Very nice Vague. If I had to specify my favorite part it would be "There is urgency so unlike the past, there is a calm so unlike the present". Very nice...
