Old Music Book

I am back from losing you
And there you are, found
Still in time, of a bluish hue  

With pencil marks I once drew
Symbols of tones dancing around
I am back from losing you 

Your old pages in plain view
Your cover quite beat down
Still in time, of a bluish hue 

You open as if you knew
In which song I’d come around
I am back from losing you 

Melodies and rhythms overdue
In your hieroglyphics of sound
Still in time, of a bluish hue 

Holding the violin as I used to
I play you, no longer earthbound
I am back from losing you
Still in time, of a bluish hue
