It seemed as if he blew that horn
Specifically for me
I mean…..he would hit a note
And my soul would flee

The bass guitar player
Strummed a riff
And somehow
It caused my insides to shift

It was like dayum
This cannot be
But I swear this music
Is setting…….me…….free

And when the drummer’s cadence
Began to start
Beating in tune-
Was my pulsating heart

By the time
The piano keys chimed in
Well I guess you can imagine
That my mind was lost

To the rhythm
To the vibe
To the melody
Can’t you see?

They not only played the song
They played me
