THE AMUSEMENT ARCADE OF THE HEART

Everybody is falling to pieces
Cracks are exploding from creases
The sound of our pain never ceases
As the mystery eludes exegesis

Many are dying and some are reborn
Some glitter like stars in the eye of the storm
Some rot in their cages majestic forlorn
As everyone feasts on emotional porn

In The Amusement Arcade of The Heart
Revelation eclipses the smart
I know I’m too clever by half
A spot-light on Edith Piaf

Hell is other people they say
Broken hearts just get in the way
Let every fool have his fond say
As we dance this mid-night away

Everything is falling apart
Our dreams turn to dust and disperse
The best is to practice your art
And to capture a heart with a verse

In The Amusement Arcade of The Heart
Revelation will tear us apart
And why not my beautiful friend?
Say you love me and boldly press send…

In The Amusement Arcade of The Heart
Revelation eclipses the smart
We laugh and we cry and we laugh
As we You-Tube dear Edith Piaf
