Part of a series or song cycle:

Friendly Persuasions - Homage to Poulenc


Raymonde Linossier

A green leaf falls to the ground
Pulled from the branch too soon
No chance to bleed yellow, burgundy or gold,
Dissolves away like dew.
Raymonde Linossier.
All of my youth departed with you.
Part of my life will always belong to you.
In my pocket I carry your cigarette case
On my dresser is your photograph
Even now, every melody I write
Cast into the distance to discover something new,
Yearns for something lost
And leads me back to you.
Raymonde Linossier.
All of my youth departed with you.
Raymonde! Part of my life...
Part of my life will always belong to you.
