Love Can Bring You Back

This piano playing inside my head.
The keys have all gone black.
No going back.
Thin walls surround me.
No lyrics left to say.
No notes left to play.
Whispered words already said.
Crumpled pages already read.
Falling into the looking glass,
Mirror to my soul.

Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?”
“That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,” said the Cat.
“I don’t much care where–” said Alice.
“Then it doesn’t matter which way you go,” said the Cat.
“–so long as I get SOMEWHERE,” Alice added as an explanation.
“Oh, you’re sure to do that,” said the Cat, “if you only walk long enough.”

Perhaps you were looking for me?
Follow the steps I’ve taken a thousand times.
Sidewalks worn like these shoes of mine.
Thoughts of you on my mind.
Are you already gone.
Perhaps I’m all alone?
Through the looking glass.
I see a ghost that must be me.
Sadness is all I see.

But I don’t want to go among mad people,” Alice remarked.
“Oh, you can’t help that,” said the Cat:
“We’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad.”
“How do you know I’m mad?” said Alice.
“You must be,” said the Cat,
“Or you wouldn’t have come here.”

To the music playing in my head.
Play these seven notes for me instead.
Notes I thought were already dead.
The keys have all gone black.
Endless love can bring you back,
Through the looking glass.
If love can find you,
Any note will do.
If you can love long enough,
Any song will do.

If only you can walk long enough,
Any road will do.”

One Response to Love Can Bring You Back

  1. I’ve never commented on a post I have made until now. I posted this a while ago, but I didn’t like it. I was embarrassed and was ready to delete this post. I wasn’t getting through to all the frustration I have felt for a long time which is a can’t write a note of music let alone a song. At least now I feel like I have expressed my frustration in a way I can. I feel like I would enjoy learning to write music but then again I have precious little time and so I feel like my time is up. Wouldn’t it be great to start over?
