in my soul she dances on,
tuned to a polka her feet,
swish of expensive velvet

tunes one after another
standards she'd adored
at her f...

Special gig Norway style saw Leaves Eyes and loved it so,
better than London gig two weeks before.
Met Liv, the singer, who looked just like she did
on the album cover, real woman.
My vocation, my music, to meet another heroine.

where is the singer? There! Look at my cd booklet—
