Each spring and summer for the last four years I have found myself walking through the city, drawn to the latin band in the Bourke Street mall that play old folk song for shoppers and tourists.
Each year when I stand by watching them perform I'm just another face in a crowd... Until he sees me.
Regardless of if they are mid song, preparing for a lunch break or just adjusting in their seats before beginning another song, he pauses, looks me in the eyes and strums his guitar..
This is what he sings..
If you don't speak Italian, these lyrics will help..
