"In a Minor Key" as written by and Tim Finn....
I’m living in a minor key
A melancholy mystery
A quiet place where you and me
Can be quite still

Piano plays a minor chord
And I’m reminded of the day
When love gave me her rich rewards
Then took away my major woes
I stumbled on such sweet repose
In a minor key

When two weary hearts
Enter wide open spaces
It’s enough for a while
Just to smile

But should love endure
Then the smiles on their faces
Turn to bitter tears
Back to tears of joy

I’m living in a minor key
A bitter-sweet tranquility
A place where nothing touches me
Nor ever will

A sad familiar melody
Comes singing through the
Room to me
Whenever I am by your side
I take a ride down memory lane and
Face the truth I’m back again
In a minor key

Rain falls on the roof
As we lie here together
Laughing at the jokes
Only you and I will ever understand

Linger for a while
In the pool of emotion
Let the water rise
Take your time and see
You’ll find it in a minor key

I’m living in a minor key
A melancholy mystery
A quiet place where you and me
Can be quite still

Piano plays a minor chord
And I’m reminded of the day
When love gave me her rich rewards
Then took away my major woes
I stumbled on such sweet repose
