I play you 60 songs
On my guitar
The strings sing your name
Softly
Even before I touch them
Soft

I can hear your voice
Sing my name
As I strum
Soft
With my heart
With my fingers

I'll play you 60 songs
On my clarinet
Cover uncover…
My tongue on the reed
Touching your tongue
The breath of me

I can't put down
My instrument
I'll hold you up
When you're sober

I'll play you 60 songs
On my wine glass
I'll take it with me
I'll take it to the garden
And play by the river
My fingers on your mouth

Soft,
By the wine of your tongue
Ring, my fingers,
Ring so soft
