From "The Beautiful Album" 2017


The fishermen stare through sun bleached eyes,
Sun pours down from the clear blue sky,
There is a well that never runs dry,
The dust blows by and through the narrow lane,
In Notre Dame.

A life is long and a life is strong,
The sea is weaving its merry song,
The boys are working all day long,
The boats go out and the boats return again,
To Notre Dame.

Around the door the roses grow,
Along the wall to the shuttered windows,
And underneath the washing blows,
In the distance you can hear the Marseilles train,
At Notre Dame.

My heart is breaking at youth's brief beauty,
My face is smiling as age is looming,
On the sandy square a woman is waiting,
And every day, the church bell rings the same.

A man can live and a man can die,
But there is a well that never runs dry,
In Notre Dame.
