The Blooming Bagpipes

When I hear those Bagpipes roar,
My heart begins to soar.

Frozen in my tracks,
My mind wanders back.

To a piper I once knew
Whose heart was pure and true.

He played those pipes like angels sing,
I often wondered, "Where are his wings?"

Those bagpipes casted a spell on me,
And that Irish lad's face is all I could see.

I used to weep when those pipes would 
Because for the moment my lost heart felt 

See, that piper is the strongest man I ever 
But because my heart was immature, I 
was'nt ready for him yet.

As years pass by, this broken heart has 
begun to heal.  
Yet as soon as I hear those faithful pipes, 
my heart starts to feel.

Time has a way of putting our mistakes far 
in the past,
But I have to accept that Celtic sound will 
forever last.

So when you see that kilt and bearskin 
come marching in the room,
Do as I do 'listen' and soon your heart will 

For those bagpipes serve a bigger role 
then i ever knew, That thunderous sound 
can only come from a select few.

And behind one of those pipes, stands a 
beautiful man, but he never notices I'm his 
biggest fan.
