I Look For You

????? ???

In the corner of the bookstore is a man playing dominoes
the crowd outside doesn't notice the confusion,
there is the sound of firecrackers and people turn
in all directions, the cameras searching for an answer

no one will ever know the truth, it is well hidden
they will look for it in all the faded photographs
but it is a mystery to the world, that fatal day in November
some will say it is this, some will say it is that

the love, that inspired it
???? ??????
I say to the handwriting on the wall,
it was you all along, 

anchoring away, marching through Marseilles
with your epaulets and caps on.

 beauty in the eye of the beholder.

? ??????? ???? ??? ?????????
