The Piano Burns

from by Paul Liddell



Where there once was a sea / Dozens of fathoms deep
All that’s left is a trickle / Ticking our feet
Where there once was a light / Shining on a night
Now we sit in the shadows / Straining our eyes

It’s plain to see that our best cannot be seen
It lives between the barriers in you and me

The piano burns as we sit here playing chords
I don’t think I know you any more
And all the while the crowd screams out for more

Where there once was love / And more than enough
There’s a space filled with silence / And it’s bigger than us
Then came rage / Hard to contain
But now even the embers don’t remember the flames
I sit and watch as that which I hold dear
Burns and disappears

No finding fault or what went wrong
It’s time to sing a different song
