Rhythm

29 May

Rhythm

Headphones on

The music’s all around him

But he’s walking to a rhythm that no-one else can hear.

The people on the street are all out of step

But he walks to the beat.

Sometimes in the street

I pass someone else who’s walking

To the same beat.

Yeah, we can spot each other.

Recognition like a smile deep in the eyes,

Tuned to the same station,

Different styles, but we step in time;

We’re both walking to the rhythm that no-one else can hear.

It’s a good tune. Turn it up.

When you sing along in public

People wonder if you’re sane.

But if you sing out, maybe they’ll hear too

And stop rushing

And step to the rhythm.
