about

our single 'Dolores' is about a mysterious accordion player.

lyrics

Out from a case lined with soft purple memories/Fingers that push up and down with a painless ease/She with the skills and the stars marked repeatedly/Dolores stands with me/
Forty-one keys lying there keep her company/
Loses her place and her face shows uncertainty
Eyes big as eggs scan the crowd for some sympathy/
Dolores stands with me/

Dolores stands with me now/Wiping the sweat from my brow/
My wrists still ache from twisting/The weight is more than I can manage/But I don’t have that much to complain of/Dolores would have kept pressing harder/
Dolores speaks to me now/Time has passed and with it her know how/Lovely polkas lonely pages/
Rows of students in their cages/A signature to prove their progress/A star to mark the test well taken/
Dolores were you ever shaken?/


She works very hard with her hands making melodies/
She moves the air with a mind for a masterpiece/
Dropping her book falling down on her slender knees/
Dolores stands with me/Back in a day when the world turned with dignity/
Squeezing her instrument/eyes closed in rhapsody/
She with skills and the stars marked repeatedly/
Dolores stands with me
