lyrics

Organ in the basement, I never learned to play,
Let out a tone, sounded all wrong
Broken apart but I can see it now,
Chipped keys and chords I never figured out

Days that I don’t recall
Maybe they never happened at all
Days so bright, too bright to be real
If there’s a touch that consoles, we’re too cold to feel it

No one ever came in, no one ever left
Pond of confusion, waters still, uncleft
Wept over nothing, crying on the keys
Someday you’ll know better,
Someday. . . when will someday be?

Days that I don’t recall
Maybe they never happened at all
Days so bright, too bright to be real
There’s a touch that consoles the cold that conceals
