Haunting sounds.

Accordion plays

minor tones,

singing soft

with melancholic stanzas;

I hold back the tears.

  1. Which made me think of these lyrics . . .

    ”Holding back the years
    Thinking of the fear I’ve had so long
    When somebody hears
    Listen to the fear that’s gone
    Strangled by the wishes of pater
    Hoping for the arms of mater
    Get to me the sooner or later

    Holding back the tears
    Chance for me to escape from all I know
    Holding back the tears
    ‘Cause nothing here has grown
    I’ve wasted all my tears
    Wasted all those years
    Nothing had the chance to be good
    Nothing ever could, yeah”
