Debut single by Nicole Stella.

Voice and guitar: a raw arrangement, recalling Joni Mitchell's earliest records.

A song about music, dreams and freedom.


Lonely eyes and lonely heart
The call is sent but heart to get
There’s a piano player and a gipsy boy
And a pint of beer and a hung guitar.

The light is dim and the voice is feeble
She reads her book and she avoids the eyes
Of gamblers looking through their funny faces,
The music within her but stage so far.

No matter how hard you try,
World needs no poem nor deep sound.
It’s hard to say and hard think
That all you have are shattered dreams.

No paths is drawn.
Streets are a safe home.
Tomorrow is just a word.
And winter is almost gone.

Lonely hands and lonely eyes
The voice is raising there’s a ray of light.
He won’t believe in what you say
So pack your words and run away.

The road is long and hard to walk
You’ll meet crazy ramblers and some friendly boys
Who believe in all the words they say
And sell their thoughts in amusing ways.

No matter how hard we try
World needs no poet nor deep thought
But soon when their dreams will be gone
They’ll look for you in an old-fashioned song.

Their path is drawn
But you’re a rebel soul.
Freedom’s not just a word
And winter is almost gone.
