    Piano Lessons

    I remember piano lessons
    The hours in freezing rooms
    Cruel ears and tiny hands
    Destroying timeless tunes

    She said there's too much out there
    Too much already said
    You'd better give up hoping
    You're better off in bed

    You don't need much to speak of
    No class, no wit, no soul
    Forget you own agenda
    Get ready to be sold

    I feel now like Christine Keeler
    Sleepwaking in the rain
    I didn't mean to lose direction
    I didn't want that kind of fame

    (Take your hands off my land)

    Credit me with some intelligence
    (if not just credit me)
    I come in value packs of ten
    (in five varieties)

    And even though I got it all now
    My only stupid dream
    I see you and me together
    And how it should have been

    I remember piano lessons
    Now everything seems clear
    You waiting under streetlights
    For dreams to disappear

    --Steven Wilson
