Oppressed by smoke-filled lounges, pressured by incessant demands, and depressed by his dismal gray life, he sings of halcyon days when opportunities lay before him.
He clutches a faded photo, reliving wrong turns, what could have been, and love lost along the way.
After a lifetime spent running away, he croons, promising with the new dawn, a reborn man will stand tall to honor his legacy.
Keep on writing.
