"What Can a Song Do to You?" as written by and Molly Drake....
Music from an open window
Music, sudden and fleeting
Ordinary music, in an ordinary street
Why does your heart start beating?

What can a song do to you?
Can it waken a memory sleeping?
Can it call back a day, when your heart fled away,
Into somebody else's keeping?

What can a song do to you?
Can it bring back a spring in December?
Can it make, with each note, such an ache in your throat,
That you find you can still remember?

For the past is a house full of treasure
And there lies, buried deep in the storm
Every smile, every tear, every pleasure
And a song is the key to the door

What can a song do to you?
Can it kindle a flame that was dying?
Till it burns once again, with its joy, with its pain
And your heart's of a sudden crying?

Oh, I know, yes, I know, now I see
What a song has done to me
