Play It Musician

First it flashed 
Like a ball of fire
Heels hitting the ground with lust
Applauses mixed into the night
Drums, cymbals and oboes

A hand spreads
Like a marble in the air
Fingers painting the sky
And a pinch of a smile 

Play it musician!
Play it a bit more!
Let the sand mix into the dance
Let the red dress fly with the wind

Sing musician, with your foggy voice
Sing to the stars
Blinking one after another.

Oh, musician...
Play it now.
There is yet lots
Lots of happiness to share!
