How I long for you to play me
just like your guitar
pressed close as calloused fingers
trace unveiled scars
why can’t you hear the quivering chords 
this aching heart can barely hold
just strum this mystic woman
to watch her unfold

Lay your hands, Darling
stroke low tunes where rhythm hides          
please, put down that old guitar
so new desires I can confide 

Hush, now, please, lover just listen
there’s a song deep in these wide eyes...
hear their bewitching melody...

Hush, now, please, lover just listen
then slowly sip the sighs
from music’s lips
true harmony
please, play me
come and play me


If you would only let me 
I could be your muse
offer a thousand perfect notes
any one you may choose

Now, I see you want to play me
the whole night long
poor guitar, those hands are mine
and where I belong

Please, play me
Come and play me

How well you play me
