"My Piano" as written by and Joseph/taylor Goddard....
I clamored for love today
The notes are all broke
I wrapped all the pages ‘round
And made me a home
I opened my mouth today
The teeth and the nose
I ran my hand ‘cross the scales
Here’s what I wrote…

It’s my piano
It’s my piano
It’s my piano, so
You leave it all alone
It’s my piano
It’s my piano, so
It’s my piano
You leave it all alone (x2)

I couldn’t come up today
I fell in a hole
Everything’s brown today
Even my gold
My wrist is full holding it
And you I behold
I want to be on with it
And weep and grow old…

It’s my piano
It’s my piano
It’s my piano, so
You leave it all alone
It’s my piano
It’s my piano, so
It’s my piano
You leave it all alone (x4)

    General Commenta wonderful song that seems to be about going back to that safe place ("it's my piano, so you leave it alone") after exposing yourself to someone and not getting what you want in return. "i clamored for love today", what a cool way to start this song.

    General CommentNice song, but I'm a bit confused as to who exactly this "piano" belongs to...? If it even belongs to anyone at all? And I'm not sure whether I should leave it alone, or maybe mess around with it or break it or something. Kind of vague on those two points....Also could use a hook.
