The Piano Song

 

The piano is all alone

I’m alone at the piano

The notes are lying side by side

You can’t take a piano with you

At the end of the night,

So ya keep holdin' on t’the notes of

black n’ red n’ white

 

Leave it there, drive away, don’t look back

Piano Woman, leave that (lonely) love alone

You know that love (love) always has

Some sadness in it.

Why do we believe in love at all?

 

Pianos always float

And they dance in the waves

Do’in a Dos-A-Dos

As the lonely oceans rise

& the people cry but true music never dies

Dans tous les naufrages les pianos flottent toujours.

Hey did you know 

In Shipwrecks pianos float 

pianos never drown 

When the Great Ships go down 

And do a dos-à-dos 

They go wit the flow 

Waves Caress the strings 

as the wild ocean sings 

 

 

And the sea swallows     

All the tricks& the trouble

And all we can see

Are the churches white steeples

And the hands going up

Of all the lonely peoples --mais

Dans tous les naufrages les pianos flottent toujours

 

All joy fades

Except the joy of children

Mais quand deux pianos dansent

Joy flashes behind the mountains

Le pour toujours est passé tout droit.

Nous n’avons pas pu le sauver de nous-mêmes

 

CHORUS 

 

I place a piano on the tongue of the world

 As I watch the oceans rise

I place a piano on the tongue of the world

 To give the world a voice to cry.

 

Deux pianos dansent dos-à-dos

Dans une salle de bal immense

Deux pianos dansent

dos-à-dos

là, où plus personne ne danse….
