    I need the keys to play tonight
    I…need…the…keys…to….play

    So that I can wrap myself
    In the melody and capture
    The harmony in the tears of
    a day torn by broken scales;

    I need the keys to play for me
    A song of joy and peace that
    Will follow me on the breeze
    Of summer’s humid veil;

    I need the keys to play
    A song of love for hearts
    Broken by instruments
    Unknown to new melodies;

    I need the keys to play a
    Windswept chorus of smiles
    Over devotion to one who
    Can’t embrace loves’ chords;

    I need the keys played by one
    Who knows the soothing power
    Of a slow jazz tune held over
    The mesmerizing strum of bass;

    I need the keys to play for me
    The tunes that only my heart
    Can hear so that the words I feel
    Can be written on your heart.

    I need the keys to play tonight…
