Voices on the Wind Voices in Tribute
King of Paradise by James F. Gaines For Kyo Sakamoto Walking the concrete alleys The child he used to be Will cross his path On the way home on a bicycle A trust heís lost A faith thatís gone Someone has ceased to call his name The innocence that failed him Has passed into a shadow And nothingís left But the sad note of a samisen His collarís damp Can it be tears Or has the rain begun again A kiss at dawn Will linger on his lips forever Now timeís moved on And this wind stings so like ice He dreams amid the oil drums And lets the sidewalks guide him But he looks up As he steps into a pale tomorrow Never to fade Love will not cease As long as he can sing her name
