The Power of Strings

Written By: Tyler Bohlke

The Power of Strings

He’s sitting at this old piano and there is nobody around
No one can hear it sing that wondrous beautiful sound
This auditorium is dead quite except for one soul
And he’s singing to no one about that old time rock’n’roll
His guitar is in his lap and there’s not a person who cares
But the melody still rings true with all the empty chairs

But he doesn’t need the company he’s got this song
With his guitar and piano he’ll never feel alone
It doesn’t matter who hears him play about life and silly things
‘cause his instruments are humming with the power of their strings

The mic is open at the bar so he brings his song
The few people with there drinks and it doesn’t feel wrong
Patiently waiting to let his heart go, he lets the other songs play
Derek’s making angles in the snow; it seems like just another day
He plugs in up on stage, and his voice rings true
Even with few to applaud, he still pushes through

His family will always cheer whenever his piano cries
He’s in good company now and you can see it in his eyes
He writes for the love of it and wants the people to smile
So he’ll play for those who desire every once and a while
Even when he’s all alone his song will never die
Because he’s in love the tune and he knows why
