The Piano is not firewood yet.

Recommended Posts

I'm really shocked that no one has discussed this. It's been out since November. So what's the deal, comments? criticism? praise? Lyrics? Anybody record the show?

It's a beautiful song, and it's been a long time since a Regina song has made me tear up, as this one did. I'm really hoping that she doesn't do the whole "i'm gonna play this song once and not give a title to the song... or record it until like 10 years down the road" thing...

Yeah, stixers would never let a new Regina song go unnoticed or undiscussed. Smiler It's a beautiful song, and like you said we all hope it gets put down officially somewhere.

It's not your fault, the song discussion is kinda buried. i think having a thread here too is good because not everyone reads every show thread.

I'm so thrilled that we have a full version now!

"Piano is not firewood yet.

They try to remember,

but still they forget

that the heart beats in threes

just like a waltz

and nothing can stop you from

dancing.

Rise from the cold

hospital bed.

You're not dying!

Everyone knows

you're going to live

So you might as well start

Trying.

Piano is not firewood yet,

but the cold does get cold,

so it soon might be that.

I'll take it apart,

call all my friends

and we'll warm up our hands

by the fire.

Don't look so shocked,

don't judge so harsh.

You don't know,

you were only spying.

Everyone knows

it's going to hurt

but at least

we'll get hurt trying.

Piano is not firewood yet.

But the heart can't be helped,

and it gathers regret.

Someday you'll wake up

and feel great pain

and you'll miss every toy

you've ever had.

You'll want to go back

You'll wish you were small

Nothing will console your crying.

You'll take the clock off of your wall

And you'll wish that it was lying.

Love what you have

and you'll have more love

You're not dying.

Everyone knows

You're going to love

Though there's still

a cure for crying."

I love this song...

Please post any corrections!
