Something

Something about certain melancholies

Their accompanying productivities

Like composing songs upon black keys

Sickly sweet minor symphonies

 

Something about how my life has changed

And how those songs get in the way

When I just want to live day-to-day 

Without being a muse's slave

 

Something about a happy song

A tune that makes me feel strong

One that others can sing-along

So we aren't hung up on what is wrong

 

Something about a day that's bright

Not fully wrung of its might

Not concerned with being right

Composed upon the pretty white

Keys

Leaves my heart feeling light
