The Night My Piano Upped and Died
- 23 Views
Love descended in the water In the breaking of the mother-daughter Father-son and lines of genes Rip and crease and keep things clean In the teeth and in the tether In the backwards-beating weather To the endpoint, to the hollow Two months' labour lost in colour Lost in dreams and crumpled pride The night my piano upped and died, died, died Love came down for many years And lost her teeth with raindrop tears Swelled her woodwork, pushed her pedals She went home without a medal She went down down, all the way Now she plays an alleway Now she cuts her shape with debt And now she's past it, past her best Lost in dreams and crumpled pride The night my piano upped and died, died, died Now she's past and all alone She laughs a drainpipe down the phone Somewhere in the distant nether I can hear her off the tether Off the hook go ones and twos Now she really sings the blues Now she dances at a mass Now she has her idle guys Lost in dreams and crumpled pride The night my piano upped and died, died, died
