Jones the player

Versions: #1#2#3#4
In a whirl of sand
the others saw drought,
it reminded me
of Jenny's skirt
in a dance many years ago.
I was feeling my ground
vibrating for sounds, it was my heart
Why to cultivate it anymore, then?
How could I think it better?
Freedom, I saw her sleeping
in the cultivated fields
for the sky and for money,
for the sky and for love,
protected with barbed wire.
Freedom, I saw her waking up
every time I played
for a rostle of girls
in a dance,
for a drunk fellow.
And then if people know,
and people know that you can play,
you have to play
for your whole life
and you like to let others listen.
I ended up with the fields to the winds
I ended up with a broken flute
and a hoarse laughing
many memoryes
and not a single regret.
