Sounds From My Piano

A man attempts to move on, but one thing reminds him of his one love.
The days we spent together
Were filled with sounds of love and laughter.
We spent the nights and mornings after
Again, and again.

A year ago we parted.
The sunshine dimmed, the music faded,
And all these months that I have waited
I got over you but then--

I hear the sounds from my piano
And my mind goes back to you.
Back to the days before the sorrow--
Before the day we said we're through.

No other sound can make me wonder
Why a love can't stay and grow.
A simple tune can bring me under--
I think of you and can't let go.

I can hear waves crashing
Near the beach we used to walk on.
The telephone we used to talk on
Rings, but I don't care.

The sound of children playing
Outside my window doesn't mean much;
I don't miss the warmth of your touch--
Only one thing makes me aware:

I hear the sounds from my piano
And my mind goes back to you.
Back to the days before the sorrow--
Before the day we said we're through.

No other sound can make me wonder
Why a love can't stay and grow.
A simple tune can bring me under--
I think of you and can't let go.

I can hear my footsteps
Echo down the empty hallways,
I know you think I'll love you always,
But, you'd be wrong.

Nothing seems to move me.
Not carols sung on Christmas morning,
Nor rustle of the leaves at dawning--
Only when I hear our song.

I hear the sounds from my piano
And my mind goes back to you.
Back to the days before the sorrow--
Before the day we said we're through.

No other sound can make me wonder
Why a love can't stay and grow.
A simple tune can bring me under--
I think of you and can't let go.

I think of you and can't let go.
