Until The Clock Strikes Midnight Again





It's twelve o'clock in Bruges-la-Morte

and where once the groom

and his bride were murdered,

it's pitch black now: every room

is deserted.


Except the one where

a grand piano is playing

Variations on a French Cancan ,

but where

is the pianist?


Do you see him?


Night after night

caught in a web of white light

he's playing the same

Very Slow and Spooky French Cancan ,

can you hear it?


The keys are touched

by invisible fingers

and now a ghostly band joins in

and a beautiful lady appears

and dances through the walls

and windows on the tunes

of this Orchestral Music Made by
Spirits


and disappears

into the fog,

forever


until the clock strikes

midnight

again.
