A girl. A father.


1. Sound Carries Meaning

A young girl

Is buried in a bed sheet

She’s the only one living on an empty street

She recounts the memories of lighthearted melodies

Trying to forget all about the country's enemies

Gently she begins to weep

As her father isn’t there to read her to sleep


A piano dirtied with soot and ashes

Surviving through the war’s violent clashes

Making a living, making a living, making a living

Thoughts that play the piano are undeniably unforgiving

Only urged on from a girl’s aching hunger

He only wishes that she was younger

So she wouldn’t have to bother

With missing

A father
