you can hear a different lingering tune
from a refrain that happens to came out of a state of gloom,
the keys on my antique piano were but broken
but you were at my side, in your mere silence into my heart you have spoken.
no words are needed to utter this unexplainable exuberant feeling
out of these broken chords I was blessed with angelic healing,
I have emerged as a strong soul
from turbulent currents which has quite taken its toll.
I heard the rhythm from your own symphony
clashing with these broken chords but then came out a soothing melody,
would you care to dance with a once broken girl like me?
no, won’t dwell on the past, don’t you worry.
out of these broken chords God heard my outcry
He helped me to pick up the pieces, ’til my overflowing tears ran dry,
now I’m playing with fixed chords in my thoughts
this inner peace enveloping me around only He has brought!
