The Music Plays

I’m sitting by your feet and the piano plays
You look at me and smile and I do the same
My heart beats faster as you joke with me
Slows down again as you play in minor key
I wonder if
You’re really sad
I wonder if
You’re thinking of her

There’s a play going on in front of us
But I’m not paying attention at all
I’m just still
As I watch you
As far as I can tell you’re only
Paying attention to me and the keys
And my heart leaps
As I dream

I’m sitting by your feet and the piano plays
You look at me and smile and I do the same
My heart beats faster as you joke with me
Slows down again as you play in minor key
I wonder if
You’re really sad
I wonder if
You’re thinking of her

I can dream that when you play you’re thinking of her
That the pain in your song is how you really feel
When you’re with her
And that the reason you started to play happily
When I came over, was because you saw me
Because of me
But I can see

I’m sitting by your feet and the piano plays
You look at me and smile and I do the same
My heart beats faster as you joke with me
Slows down again as you play in minor key
I wonder if
You’re really sad
I wonder if
You’re thinking of her

I think about how my songs
Are everything my heart longs
All the things that I can’t say
I wonder if you’re sending my way
Your true thoughts
Your true mind
I wish with all my heart it’s true
As I’m sitting here
Joking with you
And when you return
To your keys
I sit and stare

I’m sitting by your feet and the piano plays
You look at me and smile and I do the same
My heart beats faster as you joke with me
Slows down again as you play in minor key
I wonder if
You’re really sad
I wonder if
You’re thinking of her

I’ll sit by your feet as the piano plays
As long as you’ll let me, to the end of days
I’ll be your friend
I’ll joke with you
I’ll be the one you can trust
And just maybe
Eventually
I’ll be sitting next to you on the bench
Your arm around me as you play
One handed
That’s my dream
And so I will wait
As the music plays
The music plays
