is speaking with a murmur
making the sound that only I can hear
All I can manage is a whisper
of this heartbeat trapped inside
Here in this place
grant me the grace
to be amplified
- selected lyrics from Blue Arrow Suite from the musical Amélie by Daniel Messé, Nathan Tysen, and Craig Lucas, based on the film written by Guillaume Laurant and Jean-Pierre Jeunet
