There once was a blind man
In a torn stained coat
That sang on the sidewalk
As the world passed him by

With a voice as golden
As any on a stage
Till one day he vanished
Without leaving a trace

But sometimes it seems
I can still hear his cry
From an abandoned building
Or a garbage-strewn lot

As if he lives on
To serenade his darkness
Before being swallowed
By the deafening wind
