Lady sings the blues by Grant Harbison

Lady sings the blues
With natural poise
Out of ruby red lips
Comes a velvety voice
Soulful and maudlin
But no one is listening
There’s no one applauding
Lady sings the blues
Bittersweet words
Of a life torn apart
Shattered dreams
Broken heart
Lady sings the blues
But no one wants to hear
No one even notices her eyes fill with tears
Tears for the past
The wasted years
Tears for the future
Anxieties and fears
