letra de 100 pianos – july for kings


michigan lakes
remember we moved 100 pianos
in one day
for some kind of show
my brother was m.i.a.

we met in july
i think we were swimming at the lake
when pope paul died
i thought to myself
‘you’d make the perfect bride’

but i never could make you laugh
if i could make you laugh

would you have stayed
when i left
i can still recall your taste
it’s all i kept
that town was such a waste
but you i won’t forget

when work was steady enough
and everyone wanted uprights in their bas-m-nt dens
unfinished houses they were just built right in
my mom and dad
i still think my leaving was a thing that did them in
came back for the wakes
i never came home again

if i could make you laugh (x4)


i never could forget
was it love or just a play
it seems a million years away
sometimes i see you in my sleep
muddy water on your feet
the sun was shining on your hair
i reach your hand but you’re not there
i hope you’re laughing all the time
i hope you still can read my mind
i hope you’re laughing all the time
all the time
all the time

i think in the spring
i’ll go back and buy one of those pianos
learn to play
i’m setting aside
a couple of hours a day
